Numb (2015) Movie Script

Mr. Evans?
Mr. Evans?
Mr. Evans, I'm Dr. Reese.
You're waking up in
Valley Memorial Health Center.
Hmm, Dawn.
Where... Where is Dawn?
I'm sorry to wake you,
but there's a police officer
who needs to ask you
some important questions.
Where's my wife?
I'm going to miss you.
Not as much
as you'll miss me.
No, of course not.
You're the sun, I'm...
I'm but a moon,
a mere satellite.
Not Sputnik.
Heh. Actually, true story,
a girl I knew once told me
that I had a celestial body.
Hmm, I don't really think
she used that word.
No, no, no. She did.
I don't forget a compliment.
I just wish I could remember
who she was.
I wish I could be with you.
I'm here now.
I'm sorry you drove all the way
out here to sign your contract.
I just found out
this morning.
I knew when you knew.
These things happen, Will.
One investor drops out,
they drum up another one.
It's bullshit
and it's bad due diligence.
Look, I know you've gone
through a long drought here,
but don't worry, you're the guy
I want for the job.
That's not the issue.
It's a financial matter,
as simple as that.
It's got nothing to do
with you or me.
How's Dawn?
Did she make the trip with you?
Are you heading back today?
I want the job
you said was mine.
You can't manage a site
if I don't have a site
to manage.
I don't care if it's
topping trees or mopping floors,
you can transfer me
when you get your financing.
Jesus, Will, I don't hire
for those kind of positions,
you know that.
So call in a favor,
make a deal.
I'll make some calls.
He can check my phone,
I didn't want him
to see the call.
No. He just knows
you hate him, Da...
Dad, can we not do this
right now?
There isn't gonna be
a foreclosure,
Will's working.
The bank says
that they'll work with us,
but that was
a few weeks ago,
and we just missed a payment
Well, you hear stories,
and I just...
I thought maybe you could offer
a guarantee,
just a name
and Will doesn't need to know.
it's just for two
or three months,
just a little gap,
and then
you can take your name off.
No, I haven't forgotten
that I still owe you.
You don't stop reminding me.
But this job is gonna help me
pay you back.
We're almost there.
This for me?
How did it go?
I'm in.
No hiccups?
Did you get a letter
for the bank?
I'll get it faxed
later today.
Hi. Did you get the photo?
Yeah, isn't it great?
I can totally see myself
getting back into it.
Dad said what?
No, he didn't have
to interview for the job.
No, they're starting him
right away.
Here's one. Hey!
What are they wearing?
I thought you were going past.
Quite a deep freeze,
we got going, huh?
Yeah, you aren't really
dressed for it.
Could we get in?
Where are you going?
Out of this.
Where are you guys going?
Home. Vancouver.
Yeah, Vancouver's perfect.
Us too. Thanks.
I gotta tell you,
I am so glad you guys stopped.
There's hardly anybody
out there,
and they keep on driving by.
Well, I'm Dawn and this is Will,
and we're going to Vancouver,
So are you guys from there?
No. We're visiting friends.
Oh, nice. Where at?
He's just out of prison,
I'm a prostitute.
Is that enough info?
Can we sleep now?
My name's Lee.
This is my sister Cheryl.
She thought she was gonna freeze
to death out there,
and she's quite tired so...
I mean, that's great.
Already got it.
I... I don't have cash,
Don't worry about it.
Just paying our way.
Hey, we should, uh...
I, uh, want to leave them.
We got them off the road,
let's go.
He just filled our tank.
It'll be fine.
Oh, shit!
Oh, my God!
- Ugh!
- What are you doing?
What the hell was that?
The hell are you doing?
Holy shit!
Let's get him in the car,
come on. Sir?
You can't be walking
out here.
- Get him in, get him in.
- Argh.
Okay. Okay, Dawn,
he's seriously hypothermic.
Call 911. Get the ambulance
to meet us at the next stop.
No signal. I tried.
I'll keep trying.
Okay, Cheryl,
hold him real close,
keep him warm.
Yeah, this is the place.
He's still sleeping?
You know,
I never saved a life before.
I'd say
that's pretty good karma
to start a journey.
Oh, God.
He's not sleeping.
No, awake is good.
No, things are not good.
Ah, shit!
No, he's... He's really cold.
He's probably been dead
for 20 minutes.
What are you doing?
"Cormac Leith White Rock."
What kind of karma
do you call this?
Same. We're just people
doing the best that we can.
And we can't control
the results.
Ho! Ho! There must be
a few grand in here.
Oh, what the hell!
Hey, I saw you dancing
the credit-card shuffle.
Okay, this is karma, man.
The guy could have a family,
Hey, you had no problem
taking our money.
Look, we're alive, Will,
so let's live.
I mean, Cheryl and I,
we could use the scratch.
What's the shame in letting
the universe help you out?
Yeah. Let the universe
pay for your gas.
God, just let them have it,
Look at this, the guy's
carrying around a math equation.
These are GPS coordinates.
Somewhere around here.
So you said you found him
out on the highway?
You think
he was out driving?
Kind of strange,
don't you think?
Out there driving
with no ID?
Yeah, I mean, he wasn't out
driving when we found him.
He was late stages'
And he didn't say anything?
His name? Next of kin?
- Said he was cold.
- I believed him.
Look, I don't mean to be rude,
but we wanted to help him out,
we really need to get going...
You're not going anywhere.
Black ice.
Caused a bit of a pile-up.
Highway will open again soon.
Early morning.
Hey, shit like this
happens up here.
You did good to pick him up.
Hmm, most folks wouldn't.
If you ask me, you deserve
a reward, not a hard time.
Great, thanks a lot.
"Cormac Leith. White Rock."
Ah, there's a hit
from an old paper.
Gang broke
into a series of banks
in '95.
Real organized, though.
Killed a guard
in the last one.
Their run was 4 million
in gold coins.
Holy crap!
Never took any cash.
You know,
I think I heard about this.
You're kidding, what happened?
Three weeks later
cops show up to a 911 call
and discover the guy
shot in a hotel
with the rest of the gang
dead around him.
And the gold?
Says he has no idea
where the loot wound up.
He went down for it
for 20 years.
they didn't recover the coins.
At least,
not when this was written.
- Heh.
- Wow!
Son of a bitch
pulled it off.
So you think what?
The cords mark the hiding spot?
Only one way to find out.
He was out there,
and it wasn't
for his health.
So what?
You think he gets out
and he makes a dash
right for the money?
- It's what I would do.
- Heh.
Four million,
the four of us.
This is not a coincidence.
No, no, no. This is...
It's speculation.
We don't know shit.
Nah, I'm guessing if he...
If he held on to 4 million,
the police are on him,
they're watching.
So he waited for them
to take a snooze.
Cops are stupid.
Free money
isn't your thing?
Look, hiking out into the bush
in the middle of winter,
that can cost you
more than you think.
So are you some kind
of an expert now?
On winter?
On thinking.
Actually, he's a site supervisor
in the forest industry.
- Stop.
- That's perfect.
Hey, simple question:
do you pray?
Excuse me?
Do you ask God
to look out for you?
I don't mean words
that you speak,
'cause sometimes our hearts
can run ahead of our tongues,
you know.
Do you need this, Will?
Cormac's necklace.
I thought it was a ring
at first, but...
This is an easy choice.
I mean, for us anyway.
Cheryl and I,
we're about to start a new life,
and I didn't know how we were
gonna make it happen.
But this, this...
this is a confirmation,
This can shape and change
the rest of our lives.
Did she just steal a GPS?
Think about it.
You know, it would just go back
to the banks.
They already have
their insurance.
Maybe what he said is right,
the guy did step in front
of our car for a reason.
Oh, come on.
Dawn, the police,
they have our names,
they have our registration.
And soon, the bank will have
everything else.
Four million.
Even with just a part of it,
we would be free.
Free until things settle
with your job.
It would be like
the last year and a half
never even happened.
Dawn, we don't even know
it's out there.
Holy shit! You guys
are not gonna believe this.
It's only 30 miles away.
It's so close to the road.
We can be there
and back in a couple of hours.
Want more good news?
It says, a couple of hours.
It's a lot more complicated
in real life.
We have no idea
what is out there.
I mean, it would take
a well-equipped party all day
possibly, to get in and out.
We just...
We... We don't know.
So we do it in the morning.
We've got to do this
Cops are dumb,
but they're not that dumb.
We do this in the morning.
Tick tock.
What's the matter?
Cold feet, boy scout?
We'll sleep on it.
- Mm.
- Fair enough.
And, uh, Cormac just bought you
a room for the night.
"Fifty point two,
zero, three..."
Yeah, the, uh... The battery
died on me a few days back.
I'm just keeping it warm.
That's a great idea.
I'm a light sleeper,
so gotta come out for some air.
What a world, huh?
See you in the morning.
See you in the morning.
They have the GPS.
Hey, hey, hey!
Hey, come on! Asshole!
Thanks a lot!
Hey. Trying to buy gear
in this town,
but nobody's selling.
what do you say?
You two up
for a nice, long walk?
Will, take this road.
What if it's all blocked
up there?
What's a little snow?
Wait, wait, wait! Stop, stop!
This is as close
as the road gets.
We've got to walk.
You got any mitts?
I can't help you,
I'm afraid.
In case we get a flat?
To dig with.
Unless somebody has a pickaxe.
where's our pickaxe?
- On our mule with our gold pans.
- Heh.
Maybe someone will need
their nuts taken off?
Is that what I think it is?
This is a flare gun!
Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, it's this way.
This is beautiful weather.
You guys ever been
in the snow?
Sure, yesterday.
Let's go.
Whoo! The sun must have added
like 10 degrees!
Yeah, you get the extra rays
off the snow.
Just be glad it's not windy,
then you'd really feel it.
When does it get dark?
This time of year,
around 4:30-5. We're okay.
Aah! Damn it!
You all right? Here.
- Ugh.
- Let me, uh...
Let me cut you
a walking stick.
Wait, you have a knife?
Give it to me.
Nature's snowshoe.
We should go
through the thin stuff.
The shoes can't handle this.
It's this way!
Yeah, but we go
through the thin stuff,
and then we correct
to the right position.
We'll make better time,
and we'll be less tired.
Hey, I've been thinking.
We can't just spend it all.
You know,
that's how we'll get caught.
It's untraceable,
it's not drug money.
But you know what?
You guys do what you wanna do.
I ain't gonna bury mine.
What's the point
of being rich
if you're too scared
to buy what you want?
What about you guys? What are
you gonna do with your million?
I just want things
to be back the way they were.
Get our house back,
wipe out the mistakes of the
past couple of years and...
start a family.
No, that's good, Dawn.
It's simple.
Nothing wrong
with wanting that.
It's getting colder,
but I don't feel it.
Yeah, it's 'cause
you're working hard.
But we're sweating
into our coats.
When that starts to freeze,
then you'll feel it.
Doesn't matter,
we're more than halfway there.
A bird
would be halfway there.
We'd be even closer
if we weren't detouring!
Watch it.
These stupid snowshoes!
You know what?
In this terrain,
there's zero point.
Well, that was fun
while it lasted.
Hey, Lee.
It's frozen.
You all right?
Yeah, I'm fine.
Damn it!
It's a cliff.
Bitch, give it back!
Dawn! Dawn!
- Please don't let me fall!
- Pull! Pull!
Please don't let me fall!
I got you!
Oh, come here!
Cheryl, get over here.
Oh, thank God.
Thank God. You okay?
Oh, shit.
Well, that wasn't
in the brochure.
It was marked on the GPS!
- I didn't know it was a cliff.
- It was just a line.
It could have been a river.
Could have been a stream.
I don't know.
I wasn't the only one
looking at it!
Oh, then why did you act like
you knew what you were doing?
Never used one of these before,
I was just following an arrow!
- No one's blaming you.
- She is.
She's in shock!
She's terrified of heights!
She almost died!
It was just a line.
Dawn, it was just a line.
We all saw it.
It doesn't matter what it was!
We can't go down it!
You okay?
We should have got rid of 'em
when we had the chance.
Lee, I don't trust them.
Okay, well, trust me.
'Cause I got you now, okay?
I got you.
All right, that gold,
when we get it,
that's when we can choose
our friends,
choose the life
that we want.
All right,
where does it end?
It doesn't.
Go the other way.
Okay, this cliff goes miles
both ways.
We can pick a direction.
Cormac wasn't planning
on going down this.
Unless you two
want to go back.
- And what?
- Come back another day?
They're going to find his car
or truck,
and they probably know
who he is right now.
No, it's all or nothing.
We've come way too far
to just throw in the towel.
"It's all or nothing,"
just like she said.
Give me the GPS.
I can go twice as fast
if I go alone.
I can make it out to the gold,
see if it's there,
bring you some back.
You think I'm gonna steal it?
You're not gonna have
the chance.
Who knows?
Five minutes down thataway,
we could find another way down.
Yeah. Yeah, maybe.
Or it could be two hours
or three hours.
I'm not walking
along that edge.
Let's go for half an hour.
And if we don't find
a way down,
we'll turn around, okay?
Let's go back
into the woods.
That's two hours.
There is no way down.
We're done.
This... This lark, it's over.
No, it's not.
It's too dangerous.
You two, you need to go back
and wait in the truck.
No, we're not going back, man!
Our bodies
are starting to tell.
Look at Cheryl.
You want her out here
hours from now
and miles from help? She's not
Cheryl. Cheryl.
Cheryl, just wait.
I'm not your property, asshole.
Get off of me!
We gotta listen to him!
You left me
to fend for myself,
and now you're out,
and you think you can fix me?
You can't control me
and you're not taking this,
you fucker!
You're not taking it!
Lee, you gotta...
You say one more word,
I'll rip your jaw
right out of your skull.
I did what I had to do.
And she is protected.
Okay, we...
We are in a minefield,
you understand?
We need to think.
They... They cannot make it
much farther.
Yes, but we can.
We should have turned back
an hour ago.
I'm fine.
Come on.
Will. Will.
Will, look.
Come on.
They licensed these woods?
They annexed this land.
Must be cheaper
for them to leave
all this stuff
than haul it out.
Let me check their supplies.
Hey, Lee, Cheryl, look.
Gloves, hat.
Mm. Smells good.
What's that?
You can't expect a harvest
if you don't plant.
These could be good seeds
for somebody.
He was gonna take
the lake out.
Where did you get
that tattoo?
Prison. Feels like it's the end
of your life, you know.
But life is a wheel.
On the inside,
I... I met a teacher,
and he showed me
how things really were.
And all these things
that I thought I needed
just cut me off...
from the true reality.
It was the root
of all discontentment.
And yet,
here you are in the bush,
risking your life
for a pot of stolen gold.
Yeah, but I don't need it.
I want it for Cheryl.
I want it for Cheryl too.
I want her to see
what I see.
It's gonna be the start
of a whole new life.
Okay. We... We got lost.
We apologize.
We explain we got lost.
What's taking him so long?
You broke my lock.
That was me. I'm sorry.
We, uh... We got lost.
We just came across
your cabin.
Stove open. Eating my food.
You thought...
what is mine is yours.
Hey, we left money
on your mantle.
We didn't mean to steal
or harm anything.
So your intentions are good?
That's a comfort.
That whisper you hear
at night,
that's me.
You don't know what I know.
What do you know?
of good and evil.
I know. I ate of it.
I didn't die.
And we just got lost.
Our car is stuck.
We were trying
to find a shortcut...
You lie.
To the highway.
I see you now.
The eyes are the windows
to the soul.
Pull the drapes
if you want to surprise me.
You're trespassing.
Okay, sir, um...
just look at us.
We're... We're not dressed
for this weather.
Come over by your fire.
Go on.
Go on. Don't waste it.
Okay, I'm going, I'm going.
Look, we were...
No, we... We are in distress.
- Now, the law says...
- The law?
Who is the law?
You have taken from me,
how am I supposed
to get back
what you have taken from me?
Coming here was an accident.
Do you really believe
in accidents?
You know what?
Let's cut the bullshit!
There's... Ugh!
So disappointing.
You got one shot, asshole,
and then three of us are on you
ripping your throat out.
We're looking for gold.
It's at the edge of the lake,
and we know the spot.
No! Please!
Please, please, please.
We can give you a share.
We solved the mystery...
for the contest.
You know, $20,000 in gold?
On the radio?
We solved all the clues.
These are the coordinates,
and you can have it.
Gold, that's simple enough.
Follow my snowmobile tracks
two clicks to the highway.
You hurry, you'll live.
I gotta use the toilet.
You people
don't respect nothing, do you?
Awesome! Now, he's in there
thinking, "$20,000!"
Who are you?
Where's my brother?
I make my decisions,
not his.
Goddamn it, Lee,
give the mantras a rest!
Nobody gives a shit!
And you gave it away!
And now it's a race.
I didn't see you
trying to get us out of there.
It's always been a race,
and now we're set to win it.
How cold is it now?
Does it really matter?
Will, I don't think
I can do this.
I won't let you fall.
How do we get back up
when we have the gold?
We don't need to.
We're gonna head out
on the lake.
It butts up against
the highway.
We hitch a ride back into town.
I saw it all on the map.
But this, this here is our quick
way down.
Will, I can't do this.
I can't do this.
With your job and mine,
it's enough.
We can make
the money stretch, maybe...
Maybe we can call my dad.
I... I... I...
There is no job.
I'm sorry.
I lied.
They let us down.
I didn't know
what to tell you.
You could have told me
the truth.
What is the truth?
You move in with your sister,
your parents,
I go up to the oil patch.
And maybe, if we're lucky,
in a year,
we get our own place?
Because that's what the truth
looks like to me.
Listen up. Your legs go
in these two smaller holes.
This is around your waist.
But do not touch it at all
- on the way down. Okay, let's go.
- Got it.
If you lie to someone,
you're supposed to do it
to protect them,
not to protect yourself!
Dawn, you wanted to go
for this gold
when I had the job.
We need this.
More than you know.
Aah! Stop!
Stop, stop, stop, stop!
Oh, shit!
Holy shit, hold onto me!
Hold onto me!
Okay. It's okay.
Okay. Oh.
Okay. Let's go.
We're making ground!
We're through this,
and we're on the lake.
Cheryl? Cheryl!
Will! Will!
- Cheryl. Cheryl? Cheryl?
- Oh, shit! Goddamn it!
What's wrong with her, Will?
What's wrong with her?
It's all right.
Pile of snow.
Pile of snow right there!
Pile of snow.
Ugh! It's cold!
Oh, shit!
Temperature dropped.
Misjudged it.
She's hypothermic,
she's gonna...
We'll warm her up.
Okay. I'm gonna dig in.
Wait, where's Dawn?
Oh, shit!
I'll be right back.
Here. Hold 'em both.
Come here.
Hold 'em both.
Okay, okay, okay, okay.
I'm... I'm gonna dig in.
Okay, Lee,
she's coming in.
Now, light the candles.
Oh, shit! Shit!
- What?
- What's wrong?
What is it?
My goddamn boot
was outside the quinzee.
Can you feel it at all?
you can walk it off.
We're almost near the gold,
and we're already out here.
"Walk it off"?
You thought last night
was cold?
Wait till you get out
on that lake, in the open!
We have to go back.
Nobody's going back up
on that cliff.
It's cold, yeah,
it's winter.
Same as yesterday.
If he wants to take the cliff,
let him take the cliff.
He's scared.
He's blowing this whole thing
out of proportion
to keep us
from getting the gold.
I have an hour in this cold
till I lose my toes for good.
And then it will be my foot!
Maybe the bottom half of my leg!
I've seen it before!
It's too cold that way!
We have to go back!
We wait this out together
until I say.
We're good to go.
You're not
in charge of us, Will!
We're just four people
who met on the road
and shared a path,
that's it.
We're going for the gold,
and we're taking every ounce
we can carry.
Hey! Where are you going?
- We need to work this out!
- Cheryl!
Life throws you a turn,
you gotta stay the course.
You're gonna die
on that cliff.
Lee... Look, Lee.
We don't even know
if the gold is out there!
Yes, we do.
they are going
to take it all.
We have to go now.
We go out there now,
and if there is no gold
and I lose my leg,
then I have nothing.
No life, no job,
no home, nothing.
I told you...
I can figure this out.
You can figure it out?
A hundred times
I've heard that!
A hundred times!
Do you know where that got us?
It got us right here!
We have weathered storms
like this before,
and I'll get us
out of this one too.
You didn't get us out
of the last one!
It wasn't an inheritance.
It was my dad's money!
And it wasn't a gift, Will,
it was a loan!
My dad and I figured it out.
Do you have any idea
how that makes me feel?
I won't go back to that.
Will, I just want everything
to be back the way it was
before all this happened.
You think I don't want
what we had before?!
Dawn! Dawn, it's too cold!
Dawn, please!
How long before you turn
a million into nothing?
That's what I wanna know!
Cheryl, would you just...?
Would you wait up?
Holy shit! Heh.
This is it!
It's somewhere around here.
Come on. Come on.
You just...
Good job.
- That's it!
- Aah!
- Get this.
- Get that out of the way.
Move, move!
Ha, ha.
Okay, okay.
That's it!
Lift it, Lee!
Holy shit!
Ah, they burn!
Coins... they're hurting me.
They're like ice cubes.
I can't even feel them!
You should have got gloves.
Okay, okay, okay, okay.
Come on, come on.
We'll come back for it, okay?
We... We got enough.
We'll come back for it.
It's okay.
There's three more cases here.
So you're thinking
you're just leaving us?
And if he's dead...
are you gonna go crying
to the cops?
Cheryl. Cheryl!
Cheryl, wh...? What happened?
What happened?
Cheryl? Cheryl?
We'll come back for it,
We'll come back for it.
No, Cheryl. Cheryl,
that's okay, that's okay.
We'll come back for it.
Help me.
No. Cheryl, come on.
You gotta get up, okay?
Okay? We gotta move.
Right now, right now.
I think I heard
the trapper's snowmobile.
We gotta go... Go.
He's dead, Lee.
I poisoned the whiskey...
so we could get the gold.
But it's not enough.
It's not enough, is it?
Dawn's the only one now.
You wait here,
I'm gonna go get Dawn.
You're gonna have
to kill her.
You can't trust her.
She tried to kill me.
You know, you have to...
You'll never be safe, Lee.
You're not thinking
and I want you to be warm,
Come here. You stay awake!
You stay awake!
I'll go get help
and you'll wait here, okay?
But you gotta stay awake.
You gotta stay awake
for me, Cheryl.
Don't you fall asleep.
You stay awake.
You stay awake, Cheryl.
You stay awake, Cheryl!
Why did you leave us?
Stay back!
Cheryl's done.
She can't go on anymore.
We need help.
I just want to get home.
Dawn, you can have
all the gold.
You can have it all! Everything!
Please, help us.
She's dying!
We're all dying.
Okay. Okay.
Okay. Okay.
No, no.
You gotta wake up, Cheryl.
Cheryl, you gotta wake up.
You gotta wake up right now.
Cheryl? Cheryl?
Okay. Okay, I'll keep you warm.
I'll keep you warm.
Hold on. Hold on.
Hold on, I got...
I got you. Okay.
Okay. Okay.
You're gonna be warm now.
Come here.
Nope. Nope. Nope.
You gotta wake up!
You gotta...
You gotta wake up, please.
We'll be... Wake up!
You gotta wake up!
You wake up now!
Wake up now!
Will tried to shoot me
from the cliff.
Will's alive.
Oh, God!
This wasn't supposed
to happen.
Mr. Evans?
Mr. Evans?
Mr. Evans?
Mr. Evans, I'm Dr. Reese.
You're waking up in
Valley Memorial Health Center.
I'm sorry to wake you,
but there's a police officer
here who needs to ask you
some important questions.
He can hear?
Yeah, his hearing
seems to be fine.
Where's my wife?
Mr. Evans, I'm very sorry,
your wife is dead.
And your companions,
Lee and Cheryl Davidovic,
there was some violence,
but exposure
is what killed them.
Trapper by the name
of Jacob Campbell,
also dead.
Are there any other bodies
out there
I should know about, Mr. Evans?
Why did you go out there?
We were looking for gold.
Did they find any?
Thank you, Mr. Evans.
It was just the four of them,
He doesn't know
they found it.
He's on his way to being
incinerated as a John Doe.
There's more out there, Al.
