I Will Cross Tomorrow (2019) Movie Script

From a dream, another dream is born.
Are you fine?
I mean, are you alive?
How did you know that
I put my head on your knees to sleep?
You woke me up
when you moved in my belly.
I then realized I was your coffin.
Are you living?
Do you hear me?
Does it happen to you often...
to wake up from a dream into another one,
itself the interpretation
of another dream?
Dear Syrian listeners,
we'll cover the events of the past night.
New outcomes around Idlib...
The head of Turkish government
met his Russian counterpart
to discuss the situation in Idlib.
Since it will affect the
outcome of the conflict.
You're late.
The road was closed.
I had to take another one.
Why do you want to kill him?
What a question!
What has he done?
Why me?
Once you're in the game,
you have to play till the end.
Send me a photo
when the job is done.
I want the aroma of coffee.
Nothing but the aroma of coffee.
The aroma of coffee
so I can hold myself together.
Stand on my feet and change
from a crawling creature
into a human being.
I measured the time between two shells.
One second.
One second is shorter than the time
between breathing in and out.
Shorter than the time
between two heartbeats.
One second isn't enough to go to the stove
by the window that overlooks the sea.
One second is not enough
to open the bottle of water
One second is not enough
to light a match.
But one second is enough
for me to burn.
Youssof, don't leave.
The school cleaning personnel
are on a two day strike.
They are fighting for their labor rights
and social security.
Most of them work in schools
without being able to make ends meet.
Our penibility compensation...
Good morning.
Didn't I tell you
not to leave the key on the door?
Sorry, I forgot.
Maria, money...
Just this?
You owe me more.
Ms. Panayota owes me money.
Both of you do.
I have to pay for my papers.
For your resident permit? How much?
- 500 euros.
500 euros for the permit?
- No.
300 euros for the permit.
Altogether, you owe me 500.
I'll send you the rest later.
This is to pay the bill.
Don't forget!
What made you go to that place?
It's almost Turkey there.
I'm not going on a holiday.
I lost my position.
What else can I do?
- You're the one who should know.
What about your daughter?
Daphne is a big girl.
She can stay with you.
That's what you say.
Have you asked Daphne?
Does she agree with that?
Why don't you ask her father
to help you out?
I owe money to everyone
and I have to listen to your sermons.
I'm not a child anymore.
You'd better get that.
Bitter coffee. That's what...
I can put in a word for you.
To say what?
To say...
The damn police station is closing
and I have to leave. What can you do?
Help you stay in Athens, Maria.
- You can't do a thing about it.
And you know it very well.
It's as though you were happy to leave.
Well, who knows...
Something might finally happen in my life.
Like what?
A typhoon?
A typhoon is better than this life.
Move it.
The rally of the Greek students
in central Athens ended in clashes.
We're listening to Konstantina.
- Thousands of students were marching.
The rally was peaceful until a
certain point when clashes broke out.
Containers and Molotovs were thrown
towards the entrance of the National
Assembly by the infamous trouble makers.
At the end of the rally, hell broke
loose in the city center...
A napkin?
I've no change, my dear.
- It's okay.
God bless you.
Papers and passport.
Is that what you wanted?
I'm leaving Athens.
Such a pity.
We were a strong team.
And there's lots of work for us now.
Put me in touch with your pals.
- No way.
I'll call you if something comes up.
Will miss you, honey.
You don't know me.
I don't know you, okay?
Okay, okay.
- Get out.
What's the hurry?
Have you packed?
No, leave me alone.
Open this door, Daphne.
Have you started packing?
Leave me alone.
I know you're angry with me
but I don't have a choice.
Open the door, Daphne.
You have to go to grandma's tomorrow.
I don't want to go.
I've told you so many times.
You don't understand.
We'll be in serious trouble
if I don't leave.
I want us to be together.
Open up, let me help you.
I'll do it alone.
Since you're leaving me alone.
It's not easy for me, you know.
You're leaving me behind,
just like dad did.
Don't say that again.
Don't ever say that again.
Open the door.
Don't shoot!
Don't move or I'll shoot.
Don't shoot!
Son of a bitch...
I said don't move.
Please don't shoot.
Who told you I was here?
You're from Latakia.
How do you know?
I can read in people's eyes.
But, habibi...
Do you have money to cross?
No money...
No crossing!
I need to cross.
I don't smoke.
It's me.
Yes. It's done.
I have the driver.
Just as I said.
You will cross tomorrow.
Cut the engine!
Hassan, my son...
Greek police!
Greek police!
Put the motor on!
Maria Iouannou.
Let her in.
Yussof Moussa, second interview.
Is this your passport?
Father's name?
Mother's name?
How old are you?
Do you know how many years
a smuggler gets?
I am not a smuggler.
But, you drove the boat.
Only this time.
Smuggler's name?
I don't know his name.
Was he on the boat?
- Your story doesn't make sense.
Two others were there.
One of them took the money
and the other pushed us on the boat.
They said I had to drive
because I couldn't pay.
Why should I believe you?
This is really what happened.
Why did you leave Syria?
Because I didn't want to kill.
Tell us what happened on the boat.
I need details.
What made you come to the island?
I was thrown here by the sea.
- What?
Never mind.
I lost my position in Athens, so...
And you?
You must be happy here,
so close to Turkey.
Why do you say that?
- Isn't Grkan a Turkish name?
Maybe, but I'm German.
- Sorry!
It's alright.
What are you doing after work?
- Why?
We usually go to this bar
with some colleagues, to chill out a bit.
Maybe you'd like to join us.
Call me if you decide to come.
Mum, it's me.
Daphne isn't answering my calls.
Tell her to call me.
I'll call you back.
What'S UP?
- Someone tried to steal her money.
- An African. Don't remember the country.
Is this really what happened?
- How should I know?
Who do you believe?
This one or the other?
Where's the other one?
- Next door with Katsiris.
Go and body search her.
I'll take care of this one.
Take this off.
Give it to me.
- Noura...
Noura Sad.
What happened with that woman?
- She was trying to steal my money.
How do I know this is your money?
How do you know it is not?
This is my money.
You need papers
to go further, you know...
Passport, ID...
To go further in Europe.
Do you understand?
Think about it.
What do you want?
- I need a crossing.
Who's crossing?
I said, who's crossing?
Don't waste my time, woman.
My daughter.
How old is she?
- 15.
Fifteen? Still a child.
You must pay more money.
Why more money?
- To get her on a good boat.
How much?
I'll check that out. I'll tell you.
But I want it done quickly.
Trust in God and everything
is going to be okay.
In God's will.
Daphne, why don't you answer?
I've left you tons of messages.
Call me back.
Hi, Maria.
- Hi, Anna. What's up?
You promised to send me money.
- I know, I'll send it.
I'll look for another job.
Anna, please... Mum and Daphne
will kill each other without you.
I'll send it to you. Promised.
You're free to go.
What about my charges?
The boy who died?
The other passengers confirmed your story.
It was declared an accident.
And his family?
They will continue their journey,
I guess.
Your release paper.
Strange guy.
I don't know.
I'm going to the gate.
Get in.
Move it.
At last! I called you so many times.
I wasn't...
How are you?
- Fine.
Where are you now?
On a Greek island.
Good to see you.
Your family...
I tried to call them on Skype
but they were not online.
I have something to...
Yussof, you have to be strong.
There was a barrel bomb attack yesterday.
One of the bombs hit your house.
And your family...
Your family...
All of them.
Yussof, I'm really sorry.
Everything okay?
- Yes.
Maria, I'm going for coffee.
Do you need anything?
No, thanks.
Are you crazy?
Where do you come from?
- Homs.
- Homs... Syria.
Are you sure?
Show me Homs on the map.
Not know map.
Why did you tear the boat?
Not me.
This is your knife, yes?
People saw you.
I heard the Greek police.
Why did you tear the boat?
A boy died that night.
I afraid. Not want pushback.
You don't need to write this down.
- Why?
Because, it's not important
and there are no pushbacks.
But I already did.
Shall I take it out?
Why do you think
he's not telling the truth?
Because I know my job.
And you never make mistakes?
- No, I don't.
You seem to get too involved in this.
In this job,
you need to keep your distance.
Otherwise you won't
be able to handle things.
You see what I mean?
Here you go.
You didn't leave?
I wanted to see you again.
What's this?
Tell me.
- What?
She was my sister.
Hello, mum?
- Maria.
I'm at work, tell me.
- Maria...
Your daughter... is missing.
What shall we do?
Daphne... what?
Since when?
The day before yesterday.
Let me call her.
Hi, this is Daphne.
You're there, but not me!
Daphne, it's me.
Call me back.
Cut that out.
My daughter has disappeared.
What can I do?
- Can you take care of them?
You can get out of the car.
What shall I do?
- Take the car.
My daughter has disappeared.
What are you going to do?
I'm going to Athens.
Where to?
- Athens.
How many people?
- Two.
Two passengers and a car.
The 9:30 PM for Athens.
Daphne has disappeared.
A couple of days...
Mum told me yesterday.
Could you do the missing report for me?
She's 16.
I arrived now.
Just out of the ferry.
Pick up Yorgos.
Answer for fuck's sake!
You'll find her.
Do you know where Daphne is?
You must be joking.
Doesn't she live with you?
She's been missing for two days.
And you're telling me now?
I called you so many times,
but you never answer!
What a great dad!
Why don't you ask
your cop friends to help you?
You haven't changed.
Once a jerk, always a jerk!
- Hey, relax!
I've quit.
Have you, really?
Where can she be?
Any idea?
None. And I'm worried sick.
And your mother?
My mother?
What about her?
New lover?
New friend.
Is that your problem?
- It's none of my business.
What will you do now?
Whatever I can.
Look, I can't take you
around with me.
I'll go where you go.
Don't worry about me.
I don't know...
I have to find Daphne.
Maria Ioannou.
I'm Daphne's mother.
What can I do for you
Ms. Iouannou?
You must have noticed that Daphne
is missing for three days.
Really, how surprising.
Didn't we call you?
- No.
If we were to call the police
for each absence!
Can't you help me?
It's goes with her age.
What can we do about it Ms. Ioannou?
What do you mean?
- Wait a minute.
Wait a minute...
Daphne is a good kid.
But I'm not her mother!
Who said you were?
- What about Zoe...
Zoe Manzanas.
Have you spoken to her?
She's Daphne's friend.
You should talk to her.
Where can I find her?
Once out of the gate, turn right
and go behind the sport field.
Are you Zoe?
Come here.
I'm Daphne's mother.
- When did you last see her?
Last week.
- Where?
I don't remember.
- What did you do?
Don't remember.
- They say you hang out with her.
Tell me where you went,
what you did.
Nothing, why?
Listen love...
Don't play with me.
Tell me where she is.
I don't know.
I can help you remember, call your parents
to tell them what you do here!
Do what you want!
What's up?
I saw her last Wednesday.
She said strange things.
That she wanted to go on a trip.
I thought she was bullshitting,
just playing a game.
Is that all?
Come on man, everybody needs a lighter.
- I don't smoke.
I need a job.
Maybe you need something else?
- No, I don't.
Fuck you.
- How long have you been here?
Why do you want to know?
Are you on something?
Hey, you buy or not,
but don't fuck with me.
Think of your family!
None of your business.
This place is hell.
Tomorrow you'll see.
Tomorrow you'll see.
Yes... Maria Ioannou, speaking.
Her mother.
I'll be right there.
It's not my daughter.
It's not my daughter.
I'm sorry.
Any news?
What are we doing?
I don't know.
Let's go home.
Come in.
Any news from Daphne?
- No mum.
Otherwise, I would have called you.
Come and sit down.
Don't be shy.
What are you doing mum?
You have a headache, don't you?
Maria... who is this?
Just have a look.
And here is my father...
from Asia Minor.
He fled from Izmir to Mytilene.
Do you understand?
What did she say?
- My grandfather.
He fled from Izmir to Mytilene.
Where did you find this photo?
In Pandora's Box.
You never look into Pandora's Box.
Grandpa was from Izmir?
You never told me that.
You never listen to my stories.
Who is this?
What's he saying?
- He's asking who's on the photo.
You, of course.
I told you the other day.
It's not me mum, it's you.
- Don't get angry.
I'm not angry.
But does it matter if it's me or you?
History is important, Maria.
I didn't know how to be a mother.
How do you learn that?
I didn't know how to take care of Daphne.
No one ever taught me that.
All by myself.
Sometimes I feel I haven't
done the right thing for Daphne.
Why am I telling you this?
Because, we are different.
I'm a stranger.
The bloodshed in this strategic city
is as intense as ever
in the neighbourhoods around the airport.
Rebels and the government forces
are fighting over the city.
Aleppo is like a phantom city.
Most of the neighbourhoods are deserted.
It's the second biggest city of Syria,
but at some point it became void of life.
Yes... When?
Going to the camp?
- Yes.
Where are you from?
How old are you?
Take this.
What is this?
An offering.
It's a lot of money.
- Just take it.
Let go of me.
My baby.
