Norma (2023) Movie Script

- Hi, Norma.
- Hi. How's it going?
Didn't you hear me honking?
I need to talk to you, ma'am.
Sure, but help me unload first.
I left the car open.
No. Let's talk now.
Has something happened?
I won't be working here anymore.
- What?
- I quit.
I've been offered a live-in job.
It pays well.
I can rent out my house
and earn a bit extra.
I thought you felt like one of the family.
Yes. Who never got to eat with you
in the holidays.
I'd always watch from the kitchen door.
Well... Fine.
If it's what's best for you,
I'll pay you at the end of the month.
No, I'm leaving today.
Giving notice would make it harder.
Then I'll see you out.
Your uniform.
No, please don't. Just go.
- Hello.
- Norma!
- I'm here to see Ins.
- She's in sonography.
Sonography. Through there.
No... Okay. Thanks, Ale.
You're welcome.
Breathe. Very good.
You can raise your daughter on your own.
Don't worry if your family don't help out.
What are you doing, Mom? I'm working.
Yes, I'm sorry.
I need to speak to you urgently.
Wait outside. I'll be right out.
Close the door, Mom.
Thank you. Wait outside.
She said I could have let her eat with us,
but who would that benefit?
I don't get it.
I don't understand why she left.
That's so ugly, honey.
I mean it, stop smoking.
You're a doctor. Especially here.
Everyone can see you.
Is something wrong?
I'll never smoke again.
They robbed a clothing store
in downtown Las Tucas
with a welding gun.
A welding gun, a worker's tool,
used for a robbery...
What are you doing?
You made me jump.
To cheer you up.
...around midday.
Thanks. They're beautiful.
...two men and two women.
What role did the women play?
The women acted as a lookout.
What would feminists make of that?
Tools should be for work!
Norma! Do you have cash for the taxi?
You made me jump, Mom.
Why didn't you tell me you were coming?
I came to get the spare key
for my apartment.
I gave one to your sister. She lost it.
Why give her a spare if she never goes?
Where's your cash?
In my purse, in the kitchen.
Rosita! Rosita, honey,
would you fetch Norma's purse?
Where's Rosa? I can't take this.
Always diagonally. Otherwise they die.
You don't know...
- What an ungrateful piece of trash.
- Don't say that, Mom.
They're all the same, Normita.
They're all trash. Fucking whores.
Just like the overnight nurse.
You don't want to believe it,
but she brought a man home.
They were screwing in the kitchen
while I was asleep.
- Honestly!
- Mom...
You built up her confidence too much.
Who? Roberto?
No, Rosita.
That boy looks just like the actor
from the telenovela I'm watching.
Tell Beba that next time she loses it,
she can get it copied herself.
What's wrong?
I don't know.
Thank you.
I spoke to your sister.
- She said to call her.
- Me call her?
- She can call me.
- Norma, she's weaker.
And I'm not weak? I'm very weak!
Rosita, is that you?
- Mom!
- Oh, honey.
You scared me.
- You scared me.
- No, you scared me.
- What are you doing?
- I thought it was robbers.
Robbers? Why?
What do you mean, why? Don't you watch TV?
Hi, sweetheart.
Are you okay? I came to check on you.
And to drop off some laundry.
- Sure.
- Are you okay?
Give me a kiss.
- Okay. I'll get on with...
- Okay.
...the laundry.
I've been so busy all day since she left.
Like I said, get someone in to help you.
Like I said.
I'm not ready yet.
- I need to be ready.
- Fine.
- Do you want coffee?
- No, I have to go.
- What?
- I have to get to work.
The doctor's in demand, huh?
Shall I call you later?
- Yeah.
- Okay?
Yes. Ciao.
Marijuana is a gateway drug
leading to use of harder drugs,
starting with cocaine
and ending with heroin, the killer drug.
Stay away from marijuana.
Hi, honey.
No, I haven't seen anything.
Blue box?
No. If I find it, I'll let you know.
Try it without lifting the paintbrush.
Let's see, Alina.
You clearly have a gift, Norma.
Now, stay within the lines.
First learn the rules, then...
to express yourself.
Let me give you this month's money,
for me and for Alina.
- Ah, yes. You're a sweetheart.
- Thank you, Norma.
...he's obsessed with her,
and he won't let me fire her.
Little by little,
I'll hatch a plan to find out...
What happened?
- Nothing.
- What are you doing?
I was styling my wig,
and I dropped my hearing aid.
- Oh my God.
- Where is it?
- I thought you'd had a stroke.
- Such a pessimist. Like your father.
- What's this?
- Give me a hand.
- Are you looking for this?
- That's it.
It's so lucky we found it.
- Grandma, it's me!
- I'm lost without it.
- Come and help us!
- Coming.
Help me! I'm stuck, Norma.
What do you think I'm doing?
You can't have this plant
on top of the heater, Grandma.
- It's dangerous.
- Oh, leave it.
The heater's off.
Norma, you're a darling.
You got my groceries.
- Did you get the spinach?
- Yes, Mom.
- What's this?
- Look--
- Ah, the lollipops.
- Go and sit down. Carefully.
Careful. Look ahead when you're walking.
- I am looking.
- Yes.
- The plants are beautiful.
- You noticed them?
- I've always had a green thumb.
- Amazing.
It's a shame neither of my daughters
have that gift.
Normita, make some tea
if you're not doing anything.
- Go on.
- Yes, Mom.
There's toast and jam...
- Look.
- We can have...
Tell the overnight nurse
I don't want her smoking in here.
It's the overnight nurse's man.
Does this man wear lipstick?
Free cannabis.
- What are you watching?
- Hello.
I was watching a documentary.
About what?
About... growing orchids.
I'm thinking of building a greenhouse.
- Here?
- No, at the cottage.
The cottage is for sale.
Is something wrong?
Nothing. You?
Can I ask you a question?
Of course.
Do you think we're happy?
But happy couples
spend time together,
like the same things, like to talk...
We're together every day.
We live in the same house.
We have the same friends.
When I was young,
I thought I'd have grandchildren by now.
Or I'd be living a bohemian lifestyle,
like an artist.
Just like yours.
I go to bed at ten every night,
and I can't sleep.
Do you worry about Ins?
She's so career-focused. What can you do?
She doesn't want kids.
She has no maternal instinct.
She can't manage a relationship,
let alone a child.
She knows what she's doing.
She's successful. That's what matters.
Subject closed.
Ours is a strange version of happiness.
Yes. No. Hello.
I'm at the cottage. I fell asleep.
No. Yes... No.
I only take them at night, to sleep.
I just fell...
Because I'm tired.
I'm doing everything in the house myself.
Well, it's dirty,
but there's no sign of vandalism.
I didn't forget.
I'll drop by the house,
and then come there.
Okay, fine. Okay.
I'll come straight there in that case.
- Here.
- We're here, Mom. Over here.
- Here.
- Come on.
- Hello.
- How are you?
So you went to the cottage?
You should sell it before it falls apart.
There's no internet or anything.
- It doesn't even have a TV.
- I like it.
Did you see who's here?
The psychologist I told you about,
from Buenos Aires.
- Another G&T, please.
- She's fantastic.
- Thanks.
- The redhead?
I've referred patients
with anxiety to her.
- She looks crazy.
- Don't say that.
When you pray,
ask for help loving your neighbor.
She looks like a lunatic.
- Where's Dad?
- He had a meeting, I think.
- What's up, Mom?
- Nothing.
She's anxious. I know her.
She was always more anxious
than her sister.
- It's true.
- Speaking of Beba.
She's thinking of hosting
Grandma's 80th birthday party.
She says she forgives you--
She forgives me?
Why not?
She's forgiving me?
Bury the hatchet. She's your only sister.
Have you forgotten
what your aunt said to me?
- About Dad?
- Yes, about Dad.
She said, "If my marriage
was as dead as yours..."
"I'd rather get divorced."
- Don't mock me.
- I'm not.
You wouldn't like it
if your sister said that to you.
I don't have a sister, Mom.
Inesita, have you put on weight?
I gave up smoking.
I decided on a birthday present for you.
- Don't tell me.
- A new wig.
Just what I wanted.
I need some air.
Something smells bad. I need...
There's no smell, Mom. I'll come with you.
Norma, please don't make a scene.
That's a window. It doesn't open.
Let's go that way.
- That doesn't open either.
- Waiter!
- That way. Come on.
- This chicken is raw.
It needs salt, it's raw,
and these vegetables are unchewable.
And... a flower?
- What did you take?
- The pills make me sick.
I'll end up in an asylum
or becoming a Breatharian...
...and dying under a tree
trying to feed on air.
This is just anxiety. Calm down.
Shall I come with you?
No. I can't breathe in Las Tucas.
Go back to Grandma
before she makes a scene.
- Let me know... Slow down!
- For a photo, yes, but to eat?
Are you okay?
I needed some air.
Okay, breathe normally.
Breathe from lower down.
From here, from your core.
That's it. In through your nose,
out through your mouth.
Watch the wind. What a gift.
Let go of any negative thoughts.
Feel it in your face.
Close your eyes.
Thank you.
- Hello.
- Hello.
I'm Judith.
Two guys came out from behind a tree,
each holding a knife,
both high on drugs.
The corner store on the square
is where drug addicts hang out.
- I think they sell drugs there.
- Awful!
When I was young,
there weren't so many drugs around.
- Now they're everywhere.
- Yes, you're absolutely right.
A friend of mine went to see
that psychologist from Buenos Aires.
The one who does alternative therapies.
She recommended
that she smoked I don't know what
and that she hugged a tree!
- What did your friend do?
- She didn't go back.
Apparently, they broke into
the house of an engineer.
It was planned.
They waited by the gate
in a stolen vehicle.
When the owners went out...
...they went straight to the safe,
because they were clearly tipped off.
They forced the safe open
and stole three vintage Rolex watches,
one million pesos in cash,
and 20,000 dollars.
This is the country we live in, listeners.
This is how Argentinians have to live.
Where are my pills?
- Are you all right?
- Yes.
- What happened?
- Nothing.
What do you mean, nothing?
I was floating.
You got in the pool dressed like that?
- Go get changed. You'll catch cold.
- It's not cold.
Did you think I was dead?
- You're crazy.
- I scared you, huh?
It's not funny.
If I die, it solves
all your problems, right?
Such a lovely fire.
I find it calming to watch it.
Like the sea.
Hurry up. We're late!
- I'm coming!
- What's that smell?
Is something burning?
- I burned some incense.
- It smells awful.
Hurry up, please. Let's go.
- Hello?
- You changed the code?
- Hey.
- Yes.
Come on. We're late.
I'll call to get it deactivated.
Hello. Gustavo Blanco.
Can you come and turn this racket off?
Two, one, zero, nine. My birthday.
We never change it.
A ladybug.
Norma! Come on, please.
Gus, Norma, you're here at last!
Good evening.
- Come in!
- Hi.
- Look at that lipstick!
- What?
- Are you going out dancing later?
- No.
- Is it too much?
- No, you look fantastic.
I'm trying new things.
Welcome, new Norma!
Turca! Where's Turca?
I'm here!
For you, only champagne.
- Thank you.
- Go easy on the alcohol, Norma.
You'll have a headache tomorrow.
Just a small glass.
So you're fixing up the cottage?
I'm building a greenhouse.
- It's not safe there.
- That's what I said.
I'll be fine.
I was just walking along, 3:00 p.m.
Held at gunpoint for half an hour.
Can you imagine?
But you had 200,000 dollars on you.
Somebody knew.
You invited my sister?
Why didn't you tell me?
She called to congratulate Turco.
I'm sorry, Norma.
I didn't know you'd react like this.
Can you forgive me?
Let me know next time.
- I'll go say hello. Are you coming?
- No.
Everyone okay over here? Yes? Great.
I hardly recognize you.
You just sat there.
And this anger at your sister?
Put it behind you.
It's a problem if I make a scene.
It's a problem if I don't.
The AC is on.
I need air. I can't breathe in Las Tucas.
- Actually, four.
- I'm here with Grandma.
- Hi, Dad. How are you?
- My darling.
- Good. You?
- Good. Excuse me.
Hi, Mom.
- How are you?
- Good. You look lovely.
- Happy birthday, Mom.
- Hi, Alina.
What strong perfume!
- You look awful. Did you sleep badly?
- You look lovely too.
Who's she?
- Alina, my friend.
- She's put on weight.
- I quit smoking.
- Don't say these things, Mom.
Well, someone has to say it.
Turn that off!
I'm not missing my telenovela today.
Today we find out
if she's a man or a woman.
Well, turn the volume down!
I was resting, Mr. Carlos Alberto.
I wanted to ask how your work is going...
Five, six...
- What are you doing in here, Mom?
- Come in.
What's wrong?
I can't stand it anymore.
- I can't stand it.
- You know what Grandma's like.
It's making me feel sick.
Listen, we need to have one of those
serious mother-daughter conversations.
- You need to find a moment.
- Yes, but not now.
- No, not now.
- Right now I'm feeling claustrophobic.
Don't argue. He's deceiving you.
He's deceiving you. Wake up!
Come out of there, Mom.
Answer your phone, Mom.
That's yours ringing.
Gustavo, can you get Mom's phone?
She hasn't got her hearing aids in.
It will be someone wanting to say hello.
- Dad, phone!
- Okay.
Phone call for you.
- Answer it, Grandma.
- Hello?
Oh, Bebita. Yes, honey.
- Damn it.
- What happened?
- What's broken?
- Did you cut yourself?
- I'm fine.
- Is something broken?
Can you get me a Band-Aid, please?
Didn't I tell you? She was a woman.
Thank you.
Who was it?
It was Beba. She's waiting outside.
- What?
- I'm going.
Gustavo was going to take you, Mom.
No, I don't want to bother him.
Are you going through my bag?
I was looking for a tranquilizer.
Why are you laughing?
- What's in the box?
- Just ask, Mom. Nothing.
It's empty.
Well, do you have one?
Yes, I do.
Look, it's my present for your grandma.
She left it here.
Why don't you call Judith Breitman?
Who's Judith Brenman?
- Breitman.
- Who is that?
The psychologist I mentioned,
from Buenos Aires.
My patients are very happy with her.
- I could do.
- Yes, Mom, you could.
- Give it to me.
- One a day maximum.
- Yes? Okay.
- Yes.
Come on.
Thank you.
The herbal tea at night.
- Yes.
- Don't forget.
- No, just like you said.
- Okay.
See you next time.
- Cinnamon.
- What?
The candles.
- Yes.
- Very nice.
How can I help, Norma?
Help me?
Yes. You said it was urgent
when you called.
Me? Urgent?
Yes, you said "urgent."
Well, yes.
You haven't been in therapy before.
- No.
- Never, no.
Can I ask you a question to start?
Do people just open up
and tell you about their lives?
Well, that takes time, doesn't it?
It takes time to open up, to build trust.
But younger women
seem more inclined to open up
and talk about themselves.
- Can I tell you something?
- Yes.
I'd never have chosen
to live in Las Tucas.
Why not?
The people, it's like...
I don't know. They think...
that there's a way to do things
that's normal and...
if you don't do that, you're not normal.
And I live as if I'm normal,
but I'm not normal. I'm abnormal.
Normal, abnormal.
Can you do this time on Tuesdays?
Yes, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I think twice a week to begin with.
No, I'm not interested
in coming to therapy.
Look, I...
With my friends, I'm not...
I'm not very sincere. I'm...
Except with one. I am with Alina.
And the truth is
I'm not a young woman who can open up.
So what I need, and this is why I came,
is a friend.
Would you like to be my friend?
What are you doing?
I couldn't sleep.
Drink this. I'll do you good.
We have a phone call.
Let's see.
- Who's calling?
- Adrin, from Ituzaing.
- Hi.
- So, Adrin, listen...
Come to bed.
Don't worry. You'll soon fall asleep.
Count sheep.
I should count sheep?
Should I go live in the countryside
with Heidi and her grandfather too?
What do you need, Norma?
Why don't you like the cruise idea?
I want to you relax,
to get out of Las Tucas.
Go out with Turca. Go shopping.
Max out the credit card,
go to a spa, whatever.
We're very worried about you.
Who? You and Turca?
Ins and me.
- Hello, good evening.
- Hello.
I'm looking to buy...
You know what.
Everyone knows that this store sells...
What? Condoms?
No, cookies. This isn't funny to me.
Please understand, I'm not here because...
I'm very sick.
I have a spinal injury.
I've heard this can help.
I've also got arthritis, insomnia...
I'm here talking to you
in the middle of the night. I need...
I brought cash.
Okay, come in.
- Where?
- The second door. Blue light.
This way.
You just want flower?
What else is there?
I have coke, acid...
- No.
- All good stuff.
- No, thanks. Just flower.
Top quality, extra premium.
Come on.
In here.
Watch your step.
This way.
Here. Look.
Pack of nine
or four.
Okay, I'll... I'll take four.
No, you'll take nine.
- Okay. It would be rude not to.
- That's 50 dollars...
at today's exchange rate.
I'll go get yours. Try some.
- No...
- Try it. I'll go get yours.
And I'll check the exchange rate.
I'll be right back.
Bad. It's my head. I have...
a splitting headache.
I was waiting for it to pass,
then I'll come.
I don't know.
You're going out?
Where to?
Will you be back late?
It's so painful.
Okay, in that case, I'll see you tomorrow.
Okay. Ciao.
To understand
What loneliness is like
You have to see
That he's no longer by your side
The one who never let you think
About where there was good
And where there was evil
Loneliness is a friend who's not around
It's a voice you'll never hear
...are lights that surround you
You realize that now he never has to die
Never has to die
As you watch...
- Norma!
- Yes.
- Hi!
- I made it.
How are you?
- Hi.
- I brought along two friends.
Where are they?
- Demi-sec and extra brut.
- I believed you.
You said you only drink sparkling wine.
- Right?
- Yes.
- I don't want to drink alone today.
- Okay. Well...
- Hello.
- Hello.
Hey, you live in such a lovely place.
- Yes. Oh, I don't live here.
- No?
- But come in.
- Yes.
You can borrow it anytime.
- Seriously?
- Yes.
- I love it. I'll take you up on that.
- Good.
"This is why the transformation of the old
becomes easy."
"The old is left behind."
"The new is introduced."
"Both occur at the same time."
"No harm is caused."
"Groups of similar beings form."
"The return is rooted in nature."
Is that the end?
For you.
It's beautiful.
I haven't felt like this in ages.
Ever since I got married, I've always...
focused on my husband,
my daughter, the family.
Everything but me.
But that's what I was taught.
And do you agree
with what you were taught?
Not with everything, of course.
Do you think you're the same as before?
Remember what the I Ching told you.
What did it tell me?
A time of change.
And for the new to enter...
For the new to enter.
You have to...
The old has to leave.
- Law of karma.
- Law of karma.
That must be Damiana.
I asked her to bring me something.
- What's up?
- How's it going?
Hey, thanks for coming.
- No problem.
- Thank you.
Oh, I left my money in my bag.
Back in a sec.
Norma, Damiana.
- Hi.
- Hi.
How are you?
You left empty-handed last time.
- Do you want anything now?
- No.
No, thank you.
Are you sure?
Well, go on. If you have any spare.
Ten. Five.
- Okay.
- Yes.
- Five?
- No, that's plenty.
I don't have any cash.
Can I pay you tomorrow?
Sure. You won't run away
like last time though?
- How much do I owe you?
- Eighty dollars at today's exchange rate.
It went up.
Ready. Here it is.
- Here. That's for you.
- Great.
- And that's for me.
- There. Thanks.
You're the best. Thank you.
- Good luck.
- Safe journey.
She's awesome.
We've got it.
These flowers Damiana sells are so good.
Here, feel this.
The seeds came from Holland.
Smell it. It smells amazing.
I went there once, a long time ago.
Gustavo and I went together.
It's legal there.
- Did you smoke together?
- No.
- Why not?
- No. Are you kidding?
Want some?
No, thanks. I don't like to take drugs.
It's not a drug, it's a plant.
It's better shared.
Well, it would be rude not to.
Is it coming back?
It doesn't do anything for me.
You know you have the same name
as Marylin Monroe?
- What?
- Yes.
Norma Jean.
Who has the same name as Marylin Monroe?
- She does.
- Me?
You, of course.
- Are you pulling my leg?
- No, I swear.
Norma Jean.
Norma Jean.
You made me jump.
- Hi.
- You took your time.
Yes, sorry. I overslept.
You said you weren't staying over.
Also, someone made an offer
to buy the cottage.
- An offer for what?
- To buy the cottage.
The cottage isn't for sale.
Then we should get an alarm.
There's nothing valuable there.
What about you?
Me? Am I valuable?
You should see yourself.
Why? What do I look like?
I'm going to take a shower.
Oh, Normita.
What you're making is beautiful.
How interesting.
- You like it?
- Yes, a lot.
You're a genius.
See? Look how you give it
a sense of movement.
Let's see, Alina.
- Do you like it?
- Yes.
No, not so much.
And why don't we like it?
Because it doesn't utilize
any of the techniques we're learning.
Of course.
What's that blob in the background?
- This?
- Yes.
That's me.
Norma! Wait!
Wait up.
It's so lucky you're still here.
I need to ask a favor.
Sorry if you have things to do, but--
- I don't.
- No? Well...
- Can you give me a ride to the bank?
- Of course, Alina. Get in.
Thank you for the loan.
- There's no need.
- Yes, please.
I'm very grateful,
but I want to pay you back.
- I don't need it.
- I know. It doesn't matter.
- Leave it there.
- Thank you.
- Ask me anytime.
- I promise I will.
There's a funny smell in here.
Oh, it could be...
I took some plants and herbs
to the cottage, so maybe...
I took some rue.
No, it's not rue.
It smells like what my neighbor smokes.
That neighbor I told you about that...
waters his garden naked.
He sings songs in Italian.
He's a real character.
Yes, it's like what he smokes.
I don't know.
- Well, thank you.
- You're welcome. Okay.
I'd like to ask a favor. Another one.
Would you keep a set of keys to my house?
Just in case. In case I lose them, or...
- Stop. Give them here.
- I'd feel much better.
- It's no trouble at all.
- Thank you so much.
Rosa? What's she doing here?
She's working in an apartment
on the second floor.
She should work wherever she's happiest.
...I had a twin brother.
He was killed in my hometown because...
...he would go out into the street
dressed as a woman.
So dangerous.
He was very handsome.
When I decided to run away from home,
after my violent stepfather beat me,
I took his ID
and passed myself off as him.
Until now.
It's not easy for a woman on her own
to make her way in the world.
Such injustice!
You've suffered so much, Virginia.
I will avenge you.
- Every woman suffers...
- I swear I'll avenge you.
...from the violence of men.
Oh, you're out here.
The fragrance of orange and lemon...
Mom? Mom!
- ...your home will feel like a citrus grove.
- No!
Sniff. Lemon scent in your home.
Why, Mom?
Listen to Beba crying. Please.
If she'd been the one who found Mom,
who knows what would have happened.
- It hurts so much, Mom.
- Mom.
Grandma died.
Let's have a peaceful wake, okay?
It's just us now.
If I ever said anything
that hurt you, I'm sorry.
It's fine. It's in the past.
Now Mom can't come between us,
we could have a real relationship
without all her noise.
She did what she could.
Yes, but she didn't do it well.
Don't be so harsh. It's in the past.
Yes, maybe I'm being harsh.
She never got to finish the telenovela.
My deepest condolences.
- I was very fond of your mother.
- I know.
Poor Mom.
- I took care of her for so many years.
- We'll miss her so much.
Such a sweet lady.
She left me all her wigs.
Did you see that Rosa was there?
She dyed her hair. It looks odd.
Was the jacket she was wearing yours?
It was Mom's.
Mom gave it to me, and I gave it to her.
The law of karma.
You get what you give, as Judith says.
Stop seeing that mess of a woman, please.
- Don't call her a mess.
- Okay.
She helps me.
- Perfect.
- Everything okay, Mom?
- Yes.
- Yes, I remember.
She loved going out with you both.
Poor Mom.
She's letting her smoke inside.
- What?
- She's letting her smoke inside.
Dad, it's a day of grieving.
Let's not argue, please.
Of course.
Yes, call me whenever you want,
so we can talk about her.
She'll be missed, yes.
Poor thing.
No, Norma is...
- Norma's strong.
- Enough of that.
Yes, sad, of course, but...
I don't know if I can.
I don't know.
What's this?
I'm sure it will do us good.
- What?
- What's this, Mom?
Did you search my bag?
Why didn't you tell me?
I don't talk about what I don't get told.
You hid it from me too.
We both hid things. It's not good to lie.
- No.
- No more lies.
From now on,
things have to change between us.
It won't be easy,
raising a daughter alone.
She won't have a father.
But she'll have a grandma
who's beautiful.
A daughter?
- It's a girl? You know already?
- Yes, it's a girl.
Are you going to tell the father?
As I said, it was artificial insemination.
A sperm bank.
- Yes.
- Yes?
- Does that change anything for you?
- No.
- Be honest.
- It changes nothing.
If you were to kill someone,
I'd hide the body.
Oh, Mom. No.
I'll tell Dad some other time, yeah?
Don't say anything. When I'm ready, I'll...
- Yes, that's best.
- Yes.
That's best.
What would Grandma say?
I'm the grandma now.
Why are you out here?
I'm getting some air.
Are you ready?
I'm not going.
Tell the Turcos I have a headache.
Go on your own.
- Are you going to stay here?
- Yes. Or I might go out.
- Where are you going?
- To meet a friend.
Did you talk to Ins?
No, why?
No reason.
Okay, have fun.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I'm a bit early.
Give me five minutes, okay?
- Do you like it?
- Oh, sorry! You startled me!
- You were mesmerized.
- Yes.
Yes. Intimidating.
The thing is, we all have one,
but very few people take a closer look.
Are you all right?
Yes. I'm going to be a grandma.
- That's wonderful.
- Yes. Ins is pregnant.
- Congratulations!
- Thank you.
Thank you.
We should celebrate.
What's this?
Never tried it.
This is the perfect time, then.
Look. Wait. Do what I do.
Down in one.
To becoming a grandmother.
The lemon!
That's intense!
It's meant to be. Let's have another.
- Really?
- Yes.
To life.
To life.
Do you have kids?
I adopted a five-year-old girl,
who's a teenager now,
but we stopped talking a while ago.
She never accepted my ex.
No. Don't give up.
No, don't give up.
You should call her.
Tell her how you feel.
You chose her, right?
You're her mom.
The photo, that's my ex.
The photographer or the model?
I do like it, you know?
The photo or the model?
The key is biting the lemon quickly.
Come on. In here.
Here? You're crazy.
Do you know how many times
I've been past this place?
I never dreamed of coming in.
Jewish father, indigenous mother.
This meeting of cultures,
but always this tension as well.
And we traveled around a lot,
always moving to different cities.
Are you listening?
No, I was just people-watching.
Where did they come from?
I've never seen them.
Move a few centimeters,
and you discover another world.
I love this. Such a good song.
No. That's it. Listen.
That's it. We have to dance. Come on.
- No.
- Why not?
- Let's dance.
- I can't dance.
What? That's why we're here.
I'll dance from here.
No, this is why we're here. Come on.
- Okay. I'll follow you.
- Yes!
Oh God!
- No.
- I'm getting dizzy.
- I'm already dizzy.
- That's how you should feel!
- Norma!
- Hi!
How are you?
I'm surprised to see you here.
- I said, I'm surprised to see you here.
- Yes.
- My friend brought me here.
- Great.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- This is Judith. Roberto.
- Nice to meet you.
- I don't know him.
- His name's Germn. He just told me.
- You're a good dancer.
- No.
Yes, you are.
- You're a good dancer too.
- No.
It's this music, it's...
I'm exhausted.
I haven't been dancing in ages.
We were in a world of our own
Taking a chance with our feelings
Eyes closed, facing the wind
Let's play again at being reborn
Two parallel lines stretching off forever
But let's remember just one moment
- That knowing look
- Sorry.
I'll be back. I'm going to the bathroom.
- Are you okay?
- Yes.
I can't let myself begin to forget...
There's nothing virtuous about love
Just people who share an evening
How long did you live in Greece?
How many years of your life
did you spend in that place?
Excuse me.
- Excuse me.
- What?
- Can I have a word?
- What?
- I'm leaving.
- Really?
- Yes.
- Already?
- Yes because... I have to go.
- Are you okay to drive?
You stay. Yes, I'm fine.
- Okay, bye.
- Wait. Take this.
Put this on. It's a bit windy.
Okay. Ciao.
Ciao! Speak soon.
I'm left with just your smell
And memories of the good times
Here you are.
- Good evening.
- Good evening.
- Good evening.
- Good evening.
Good evening.
Can you tell me why you're parked here
at this time of night?
- Yes.
- We found the suspicious vehicle.
Suspicious? Excuse me?
I needed some air.
That's why I came out and parked here.
- Are you intoxicated?
- Of course not.
Are you sure?
- License and registration, please.
- Okay.
Thank you.
It's been so long
since I had to show them.
Driver's license
and vehicle registration, please.
Maybe look in the glove compartment?
No, I have them here,
but it's ages since I had to show them.
Everyone knows me here. Are you a local?
Yes, ma'am. I'm from Las Tucas.
I was born and raised here,
and I've never seen you.
My husband is the president...
of the Rural Society.
- Step away from the car.
- Are you arresting me?
Step away from the car!
This is unit 246, Officer Mndez.
Requesting backup and fire department.
I repeat, backup and fire department.
Kid, get your feet down.
He's been arrested.
He was involved in an accident.
You gave me such a scare, son.
What were you thinking,
stealing Dad's car?
Why didn't you answer your phone?
Where were you?
Look at me. Are you okay?
Norma Lera.
You don't remember me?
At all?
Help me out.
Aguirre. Gabriela Olga.
From school.
You were horrible to me, Lera.
Remember the things you did to me?
I'm sorry. You've changed so much.
In a bad way?
No, in a good way.
What are you doing, Lera?
Are you a stoner?
At our age?
Aging pothead.
Your blood alcohol is through the roof.
What should we do?
Call the narcotics division?
Or leave it here?
Yes, if we can, that would be best.
Yes. Right.
What? Did you lose something?
My... lipstick,
but I didn't like it anyway, so...
Lera, someone came to pick you up.
Thank you, Aguirre.
- Go on.
- Ciao.
Be good, Normita.
- I ruined your date.
- No, forget about it.
He was a right-wing flat-earther
wearing a white jacket.
I should be thanking you.
Watch the gearshift.
It's not automatic like yours.
No, I know. Thanks.
- Don't set it on fire.
- No.
- Please.
- Don't worry.
- I'm more clearheaded than ever.
- I called my daughter.
- And?
- I asked her to come visit.
- Let's see if she accepts.
- She will.
- Thank you. You were great with that.
- I'm happy for you.
- Okay. Wish me luck.
- Good luck.
- Keep me posted?
- Yes.
Hi, Fernandito.
I'm at the gate. I just arrived.
I'm here.
I'm here now.
- Hello, my love.
- Hello.
I've been waiting for you.
- I'm here.
- I missed you so much.
I missed you too.
I missed you too.
I fell in love.
Then I hope you're happy together.
When you're done,
come in and I'll pay you.
- Can I ask you a favor?
- Yes.
Can you take down that "For Sale" sign?
- Sure.
- Thank you.
Hi, Claudio.
I fell asleep in your bed.
- Sorry.
- I didn't want to wake you.
- You were worn out.
- Were you uncomfortable?
Not at all, no.
It's such a nice day.
How did the movie end last night?
It had a happy ending.
Like all movies.
Romantic movies
are so bad for us, aren't they?
- Happy birthday!
- I thought you'd forgotten.
How could I forget?
I don't know. I can't reveal anything.
Do you know?
Let's see.
- So many plants!
- So beautiful.
I love this. Look.
- My mom had one in her house.
- Really?
- I love these little ones.
- Look at all the buds.
- Shall I make coffee?
- Yes.
- Come on.
- Okay, let's go.
- Okay. Lovely.
- It's so beautiful.
- Lovely.
- Ins...
Here. You wanted some, right, Alina?
A little, yes.
I'd love some cold lemonade.
Of course.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
To new horizons
And let the sun come out
To new horizons
And let it shine
To new horizons
And let the sun come out
To new horizons
And let it shine
I'm getting out of Las Tucas
Going to another city
Letting my own voice speak
Making a friend
Who I can talk to
About things that are real
To new horizons
And let the sun come out
To new horizons
And let it shine
To new horizons
And let the sun come out
To new horizons
And let it shine
And whenever I feel
Like I can't breathe
There aren't any pills I can take
The thread of time
Wants to tie me down
But I want to break free
That's it!
Let's go!
To new horizons
And let the sun come out
To new horizons
And let it shine
To new horizons
And let the sun come out
To new horizons
And let it shine
