Remember me?
Do whatever you want.
I'm not going to tell you where he is, piece of shit.
Trust me, you will tell me where your partner is.
Piece of shit.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
Hey, hey, Silvio.
No, please, please.
Please please. No...
No, no, no, no, no.
Please don't do it, don't do it.
You motherfucker!
I'll kill you!
It's gonna be tough with our fingers.
If I tell you where he is,
promise me to stop, please?
You have no idea how happy that would make me.

Hey, you okay?
Talk to me, what's going on?
I called him.
I think I'm going to use...
No, no, listen to me.
You're not going to use.
You've got this, remember?
Where are you?
I'm at Matt's place.
Okay, don't talk to anyone, alright?
I'm on my way.
Everything's okay.
Tomorrow's expected to be sunny,
the clouds will gradually dissipate.
Economic activity has declined noticeably...
Because tonight the microphones are open
to keep you company in this rainy night bar.
This is how we keep boredom away and we listen
to what you have to say this evening.
You can talk about anything.
Love, work, sex.
Or about how mean life can be.
Or just about love.
I'm here, I'm here.
It's okay.
It's okay, I'm here, okay?
Look, take these, okay?
What are they?
The prescription.
They'll take their job.
They work very well for me.
Ciao, Matt.
Yeah, it's been, what?
11 months, 3 weeks, 2 days, 4 hours and 33 minutes.
Still no Italia.
With all the time you have now,
you're clean.
We're good, Matt.
You're good, but Mrs. Ren made the call.
What do you want, girl?
No, she wants to leave, okay?
I don't know who you think you're talking to.
I came out here to make a sale,
and I'm to do the shit.
Okay, how much you got?
Like 40.
Give it to me.
Is this a joke?
You are 30 short.
Minimum call-outs 50.
Look, just take it to Tommy and say
we're very sorry we wasted his time, okay?
It won't happen again.
You didn't hear?
I retired Tommy.
Okay, then take it to whoever is running
the business, okay?
And no more running shit but me.
If you ain't got 30 in cash,
I can always take any kind.
Here, take this.
Why I want that?
In worship?
No, it's my one month's ring, and it's
worth a lot more than 50 euros to me.
Just take it as I owe you.
I owe you?
Nah, I don't do that way.
Look, this ring is what keeps me stable
when I feel weak and I think I'm gonna use.
So, I look at this ring and I know that
the feeling is gonna pass.
So, believe me, I'll pay you back for it.
Plus 10 points a day.
And you, don't ever call me again.
No, Tommy, sorry.
You did it.
You're good.
You're good.
Shit, one second.
Who's this?
Oh, shit, it's my asshole boss.
I'm gonna have to go.
Just call me if you need me again, okay?
Thank you.
You're good.
You got this.
You remember when I hired you?
How many other places you've been to?
Wouldn't even look at you because
you were a junkie!
One more mistake, you're done.
Sorry, Rocco.
I'll see you in the morning.
No, no, I can't.
I can't in the morning.
My daughter is arriving.
Remember, that's why I'm prepping tonight.
I have to be at the airport.
We open at six.
You got plenty of time to grab her and get back.
What's the problem?
Because I wanted to spend the day with her.
See you at six.
There she is.
How's my girl?
Your girl is stressed.
I'm only bringing a dozen outfits.
You're bringing a dozen outfits?
For one week's stay.
Wow, sweet.
Well, don't forget stranger danger.
What do you do if a strange man talks to you?
You kick him in the nuts.
That's right.
Good girl.
Hey, mom.
You're going to be there, right?
To pick me up?
Of course, baby.
Hey, I...
I'm not how I used to be.
At all.
BA 506, arriving at 5.04 am.
No matter what, I'll be there.
I promise you.
Help me in the car.
Get us out of here.
Where do you want me to go?
Just fucking drive!
Put your seatbelt on.
Turn the lights on.
Stick to back streets.
And know where that has CCTV.
We get pulled over,
things end very badly for you.
You understand?
You need a hospital.
No hospital.
This doesn't look like something a bandage
is going to take care of.
No hospital.
Now that we're away from that situation
back there, can we just pull over and...
I get out of the car and we go
our separate ways.
Your ability to drive right now
is the only thing keeping you alive.
Empty your pockets.
Karina Ann Sidorov. Via Petroni 15.
That's not far, right?
Not anymore.
I work 16 hours a day, 7 days a week now.
We need to get off the streets.
First I'm going to need some supplies.
What's your cell number?
Three, four, nine.
Four, four, six, seven, eight, one, one.
My daughter's idea of a job.
Make sure the call stays connected the whole time.
Wear these.
Follow my instructions.
What am I getting?
I'll tell you as you go.
Good evening.
Good evening.
How can I help you?
I need some...
I need...
I need bandages, gauze,
medical alcohol and tape.
Bandages, gauze, medical alcohol and tape.
Yes, sure.
Go and ask the pharmacist for hypodermic
needles and benzocaine.
I need hypodermic
needles and some benz...
Sorry, may I ask you what it's for?
To numb the cut on your head so you can clean it.
It's to numb the cut on my head?
You should probably go to a hospital.
There's a clinic six blocks away.
You're not leaving there without the benzocaine.
If you don't get it, I'll drop her.
I don't have time to go to the clinic. I...
I need to go to work.
You're in some kind of trouble.
I'm fine.
I just fell down the stairs at work.
Needles and benzocaine.
I need hypodermic needles and some benzocaine.
Please, he's direct on as.
Thank you.
I'm sorry.
Lights, seatbelt, and drive the speed limit.
Where are we going?
Your place.
I've been on the radio with you
every night for three years,
but I've never gotten a call like this before.
There's a corpse on the street
in the middle of the market.
Tomorrow it will show up.
It'll be a problem for those
who have to do the shopping.
You have to know, it's serious.
What do you think?
Have you heard anything?
Live nearby.
Or you don't care because you have more
important things to think about.
In any case, call.
The microphone stays open for you.
People actually live here?
The place looks condemned.
Next time you kidnap me,
I'll make sure I live in the palace.
Stay close.
Get rid of her.
Or I will.
Mrs. De Luca, what's up?
Someone with you?
A companion?
What's all this blood leading to your door?
I cut myself at work.
With what?
I'm a shitty.
Mrs. De Luca, are we done?
I need you to take care of this cut.
We are done.
But in the morning...
...I want all this, clean.
Of course.
No problem.
Okay, now what?
Now you're gonna get this piece of metal out of me.
I can tell you're a junkie.
Fuck you.
Grab the scissors.
Cut the shirt away from the wound.
You'd probably get one, maybe two stabs in.
Odds are I'd survive long enough to kill you.
Pry it open.
I need you to look to see if the metal
severed the artery.
I don't think it did.
You need to pull the metal out in one swift motion.
I'll count you down.
Give me a gauze.
Get rid of her.
What did I say about noise?
Open the door.
Open the door now.
Open the door or I call cops.
Think of something quick or I shoot you both.
I don't have to open the door.
I've got privacy, rights?
I don't like your companion.
Who the hell are you?
I need new clothes.
My ex left some shit here.
All right.
Face the wall.
Put your hands on your head.
Okay, what now?
Once I'm done, you'll have to change your clothes too.
You're covered in blood.
No, I mean, you're okay now, right?
You don't need me anymore.
You can just go and...
I won't say anything, I swear.
When we met, I had a briefcase.
It was my job to deliver that briefcase to someone.
So no, you're not going anywhere.
Not until you help me replace
what you caused me to lose.
You can turn around now.
Go change.
Go fucking change!
Silvio, please.
Before you say anything,
I have this under control.
I just need a little bit more time
and I will get you everything you need.
I promise you.
If I had a penny for every time I heard that,
you know what I'd be?
Because everyone knows
when I set a deadline, I keep it.
My son used to ask me,
what's your favorite fairy tale?
Let me ask you the same question.
It's not a riddle.
I'm just asking what your favorite fairy tale is.
Mine has to be the boy who cried wolf.
You know the moral of the story?
Don't lie.
But there's more to it than that.
An entire village sits by and does nothing
while a boy is mauled to death by a wolf.
Stop and think about what
that would have looked like.
This kid is crying and screaming.
You ever seen someone eaten alive by a wolf?
It takes a long time.
Much longer than you think.
Now with that in mind, if the villagers
had wanted to teach the kid a lesson,
they could have stopped the wolf
after a few moments and saved his life.
Lesson learned, right?
But no.
They let him get eaten to death.
Because it's not about teaching a lesson
to an individual.
It's about teaching a lesson
to an entire village.
I understand.
You have one hour.
Silvio, I just need a little more time, please.
Can I just speak to...
Sit down.
What did you hear?
Enough to know that someone else
has your balls and advice.
Believe me, it's not what you think.
What is it then?
What was in the briefcase?
About 400k worth of heroin.
How does an integral agent wind up
with that much heroin?
Are you just a crooked piece of shit?
That hit and run, huh?
The man you heard on the phone,
his name is Silvio.
It took five years to build a case strong enough
to convict Silvio for life.
And we did it.
When he was locked up, his son took over.
But he eventually got killed by a rival gang.
Apparently Silvio blames me for it.
Says that it's my fault that he wasn't there
to protect his little boy.
That piece of shit got out a month ago.
That's when he came after me.
Tortured and killed my partner to betray me.
And it worked.
You would think he's looking for revenge.
He wants the money he lost while he was in jail.
So you're gonna help me get it.
I don't know if I can do this. It's...
I haven't even been clean for a year,
do you understand that?
You have no choice!
This is too much for me!
Pull yourself together!
You'll do as I say.
I always thought Bari was a quiet, sleepy town.
That's a prejudice, you'll say.
In the market I feel like
I'm in an American television series.
Police officers, journalists, onlookers.
Nearby, someone shot into
the window of a pharmacy.
Three calls came in.
It was said that bullets were flying,
a machine gunner was seen,
A man in a car was armed,
with a pistol with a silencer.
In Bari, a pistol with a silencer?
Do you believe that?

Did you see what just happened?
You're going to order a G-Pack of H.
He's going to ask for cash up front.
- Whatever you do, do not give him any...
- Don't give him the cash.
No shit.
Don't think about running.
-You must be respected.
Hello, beautiful. Are you lost?
Hey, can you score me a G-Pack of H?
This bitch.
A lot of weight for a princess.
You got it or not?
Sure you can cover it?
I'm going to need it up front.
You hear me, bitch?
He'll get the cash when the package arrives.
I want it now.
Give me one reason I shouldn't slit
your throat and take that shit right now.
I guess it depends on
how much you like your friend.
Listen guys, I'm buying for someone else.
If you do anything stupid,
at least one of you is going to die.
Ten seconds...
...and I shoot the three of you.
If one of you does survive,
you'll get a murder warrant.
Or... can do business.
And you get paid.
And if my client likes your H, you'll get
an order of G-Pack a week, every week.
Just think about that.
I'll be here in ten.
Wise decision.
I'll wait for you there.
- Why you let her?
- You had a target on your forehead.
- She is not alone.
- He would shoot us immediately.
Don't do anything stupid.
There's our runner for the re-up.
Listen, my daughter is about to land at the airport.
I have to be there for her to pick her up.
- I've already...
- You're going nowhere!
You're such an asshole.
Because I'm on the radio all night,
I don't have many friends anymore.
My friend Francesca is a pharmacist.
Tonight she was on duty
at the pharmacy where the shooting happened.
She doesn't want to speak at live,
but she was at that place.
There was a woman in the pharmacy
who seemed strange and desperate.
Maybe the shot came from a car.
Francesca is completely confused.
I would like to comfort her,
but I have to stay with you,
all night.
Where the hell did he go?
I don't know.
What's there?
I don't see shit.
Ann without E, Sidorov.
Sierra, India, Delta, Oscar, Romeo, Oscar, Victor.
She's gonna show up on the grid.
I need to know when.
My daughter is at the airport.
She's eleven.
She might be in danger.
What's your name, madame?
Karina Ann Sidorov.
Do you have an ID on you?
No, no.
He took it.
He took everything.
He's a cop.
He kidnapped me.
Okay, give us a minute.
Thank you.
Flight 32, we have her.
You can't park here.
Did you hear what I said?
You can't park here.
Roger that.
I'm coming.
They told me to keep her at the control room.
Okay, madame.
Airport security is gonna locate your daughter
and take her to the station, alright?
Thank you.
Got good news for me?
ID check, officer Valentina Rossi.
She's a rookie.
Told her to wait for you.
And sending you her location.
D.I. Covek.
I'm taking custody of the girl.
Officer, officer, are we going to the station?
You told me my daughter is going there.
Can we go?
You know what happens to cops who shoot cops, right?
How about you put your gun down?
- Let me go!
- Hey, hey, hey!
Let me go!
Stop it!
You're not going anywhere.
You pull that trigger, you walk out of here
either a cop killer, a child killer,
or both.
Smart move.
I thought police were supposed to help you,
not kidnap you.
I am not kidnapping you.
I'm literally handcuffed to the door.
Why are you doing this?
It's for your own safety.
I'm not five.
I'm eleven.
I'm basically an adult.
Mom doesn't have any money.
If you're kidnapping me for ransom,
you're simply blowing it.
My dad has money.
That's what I would have gone for
if this was a ransom thing.
Not my mom.
What are we waiting for?
Don't worry, don't worry.
I don't understand.
I mean, I don't understand.
What's going on?
Why aren't we going?
That's him!
That's my car!
That's my car!
If you don't believe me,
just run the plate and see who it's registered to.
I will take you to the station, okay?
How did he get here?
What is he doing here?
No, no, no, no!
Don't let him in here!
Everything he says is a fucking lie!
I'm going to need to see your personal ID.
I told you he's Interpol,
but he's a corrupt piece of shit!
Whoa, whoa.
My badge.
My daughter!
My daughter is in the car!
Oh my God, how did you get her?
You piece of shit!
Go check, go check.
No, no, no!
You shoot me, your partner dies.
You put your gun down, you both live.
On the floor, now.
Step away.
Both of you.
Hands on the car.
Get out the car.
Don't try anything again.
I hate you.
I'm here!
I'm here, sweetheart.
I'm here with you.
I'm here, I'm here.
Get in the car and drive.
No, not until you uncuff.
Get in the car.
Time is not our friend.
I'm not driving anywhere
until you uncuff my child!
Get in the car.
Uncuff her.
Right now!
I'm sure you couldn't sleep tonight either.
And not just you.
Two airport police officers
not only lost their sleep,
Their weapons were also stolen.
When I say it like that,
it seems like a joke. But it is true.
The two were on patrol
when a guy arrived
who put her against the wall.
Drive through the gates.
What are we doing here?
It's me.
Open up.
You haven't got it, have you?
Why are we here if you haven't got what they want?
Just drive.
I don't like your new friend.
He's not my friend.
Because he's an asshole.
Is his name Paulo?
Who told you that?
Doesn't matter.
And who's this creep?
I have no idea.
Give me the stuff.
Okay. Honey, sit up and be quiet for me.
Don't touch her!
Don't touch her!
Let her go, you asshole!
I'll come get you!
Let me go!
Let her go!
No one's gonna hurt you, sweetheart.
No one.
You can relax.
There's your friend, Mr. Covek.
He likes putting away bad guys.
He makes the world safe.
For people.
Better stay home.
That's what the mayor just said.
There's an armed man walking around Bari.
He probably has two hostages with him.
A woman and a child.
Stay home.
You just have to ask yourself a question.
How badly you want...
something I've taken away from you.
Hey, where is she?
Hey, get her back!
Get her back now!
What are you doing?
I can't.
I'm not leaving without her.
The only thing you can do right now is
help me get what we owe...
or you'll never see her again.
I'm in this just as much as you.
How can you say this to me?
They have my daughter!
They have my son!
I had no choice!
My son!
My child!
Is in there too!
Silvio was going to kill him!
Shoot him in the head like a dog!
I needed more time.
There was no other way.
Lucy is my collateral.
We've got one hour.
To get what we owe Silvio.
Or our children are dead.
And every second we sit here is a second wasted.
So what's the plan?
What do we do now?
I mean, you're interpol.
Why not call the cops and have him arrested?
Because he has a dozen dirty cops on his payroll.
The street is our only option.
I might know someone but I don't know where.
We haven't got time for might.
We need a way to find volume right now!
How are we going to do this?
Give me the keys.
And uncuff me from this steering wheel.
Listen, you got us into this shit.
If you want my help, I can't be cuffed
to fucking steering wheel!
Give me my phone, asshole!
Lads, I need some.
I'll meet you in ten.
I have your cash.
You better not be wasting my time.
Trust me, I'm not.
Nice place.
What is this shit?
You really think I'm stupid enough to carry anything?
Nah, but I know you're stupid enough to carry a weapon.
Joke's on you, bitch.
My guns, legal.
Wow, thank you.
For what?
For being as dumb as you look.
What the hell?
You know what.
Crazy bitch.
So now what?
Lesson taught.
I'm good to go.
Now you're gonna take us to your stash house.
Hell no.
Car, now.
There is secure.
They have real guns.
Not cop guns.
No, just one out front.
We don't record or nothing.
It's just so you can see who's there.
How many people?
Usually four or five.
But I've seen as many as ten.
Maybe more.
Have you seen an old Alfa all worn out?
If it drove and past you, don't call here.
Calls the police.
They are completely desperate
and need all the help.
But once you talk to the police,
call me. Tell me what you saw.
When, where. We want to know everything.
We want to know who set our city on fire.
Literally set on fire.
I'll be here until 7am.
Until 7am on a very long night.
My father told me, before you take
a single breath of air, you get three choices.
Three of the most important choices
you will ever make.
And by no fault of your own,
two are already made for you.
The first.
And that choice God left to you is who you marry.
A rich man, poor man, or drunk.
Of course, unless you are in one
of those arranged marriages.
Then tough luck, better luck next time.
Maybe that's why some of those folks
believe in reincarnation.
The second choice is decided for you.
He picks where you were born.
Imagine you were born in the Sahara Desert.
You had to walk like 40 miles to get a sip of water.
And you had no choice in the matter.
That sounds like it's unfair.
Maybe life is unfair sometimes.
And so the world spins.
And sure as God invented choices,
He chose for me to have a son
and a daughter.
Sometimes in life you win.
But most of the world loses.
I won.
Maybe you will win.
My gun will be pointing at you.
You two were meant for each other.
Yo, it's Mads. I need Maria.
Stay down until I say shoot.
I've got three bullets left.
Third one you cover me.
Let's find the cash.
Go, go, go!
I'm not after you.
I just want what's in the bag.
Back up or I shoot!
Lower your gun.
Throw us the bag.
No, no chance!
We're slowly going to lower our guns.
Just do it.
Let me talk.
We're just going to talk.
Fuck you!
I just want to see you and your boyfriend
and drive the fuck away!
Oh, hell no.
This guy is not my boyfriend.
This asshole, he got my daughter taken.
And I'm just trying to get her back before they...
What you have in that bag
can save my daughter's life.
My daughter's life is in your hands.
I toss you the bag.
I walk.
You have my word.
Grab the bag.
Let's go.
The lone wolf who turned our city
upside down has been identified.
It's an Interpol employee
corrupted by drug traffickers.
I guess if the police find him,
a lot of lead will fly.
And there will be a bloodbath,
Where he is unlikely to make it out alive.
Stay at home, it's better this way.
How much time we have left?
Oh, shit.
Check the bag.
What have we got?
About a hundred grand.
And a handful of ancient blow.
Oh, shit.
Okay, well...
What if we give him what we've got and...
we just ask him for more time to get the rest?
We're already on borrowed time.
I've let Lucy down her entire life.
And I promised her I'd never let her down again.
We are walking into a war zone.
We can still do this.
We can.
I hope.
They are there.
It's in a sports bag in the trunk.
The girl?
I had to deal with the lady before.
She's also in there.
Get down.
Are you ready for this?
Ready to get the kids.
I've got a fucking situation.
There's a guy on the far left.
I'm gonna cause a distraction.
You're gonna take him out on my cue.
Are you hit?
I don't think so.
Trust me, you're not.
There's a guy behind the metal.
I need you to run directly at him.
You want me to go straight at that guy?
Why don't I just shoot myself and save him the bullet?
He's not gonna see you coming.
You have to trust me because I know...
Trust you?
Says the guy who kidnapped my child.
I wish I didn't drag you and Lucy into this,
but I was desperate.
But if I die, just remember. It's on you.
Mom! Help us!
- Dad!
- Mom!
Follow me.
They has the kids.
Drop your weapons and come out.
But with God as my witness,
they will both die right here, right now.
If they die, you die.
You hear me, motherfucker?
Or you set them free.
We'll let you walk.
I have people on their way.
Soon you'll have no leverage.
Mom! Help us!
No, please!
- Honey.
- Mom.
You okay?
I love you.
I love you.
Just remember.
Remember my love.
Are you ready?
Well, yeah.
Let's do this.
Sure as God invented choices,
He chose for me to have a son
and a daughter.
Sometimes in life you win,
but most of the time you lose.
Maybe you will win.
Remember the woman that captured
by an Interpol agent some time ago?
We all remember that night in Bari.
It seemed to never end.
Her life has really changed.
Now she has a restaurant all her own,
by the sea.
Those who have been there say their dish was very good.
Chef quality.
But at austere prices.
Sure, I would like to taste some of her dishes,
but I'm always here to listen
to the thousand voices and
the thousand secrets of Bari.
But before we start,
let's listen to a nice classic.
One of those that puts me in a good mood.
