Oh fuck!
[door opens]
Are you boys smoking in here?
What are you doing?
Nothing. Just watching the TV.
[women moaning]
Okay, good.
Dinner in five.
Do you eat good food like this
round your place, Mikki?
Not like this.
Yeah, bet just all boiled cabbage
and shit round your place, yeah?
Fuck off, Dan. He knows I'm
taking the piss, don't you?
- Mm, you're a good cook, Mr. O.
- Are you having a go?
You two smart-asses get in there
and cook for me and see how it is.
[phone ringing]
[phone ringing]
- Hello?
- You reckon that's his girl?
Oh, you don't know?
She's as keen as mustard, calling
him every five fucking minutes.
You too. Bye!
Who was that?
What did she want?
Nothing, dad.
Don't worry about it.
Who's this girl?
[camera winding]
Some girl that I met at the
[clears throat]
Got this from Tomi.
- Oh, great.
- I'll keep it with the rest.
You'll just blow it on
your fucking girlfriend!
No, it's good man.
It's like two grand now.
It'll get us up the coast, but we
have to get a job pretty soon.
Did you tell your parents yet?
Where have you been? You're
supposed to be home after school.
- I was at Dan's.
- Did you eat there?
Yeah, they eat early because
Jack has to go to work.
Good. So do I.
I have a double shift because
someone did not turn up.
Your father works late too and Tomi
is sleeping, so don't bother him.
Your uncle works him too hard!
Hey, mum. Dan and I were thinking
about what we'd do after school.
[car honking]
Not now, Mikls. I have to go.
Hi, Mik.
You're getting tall!
Hey, Helen!
You're getting fat!
[music playing]
[heavy breathing]
What the fuck are you doing?
What the fuck are you doing,
- Tomi...
- Are you fucking watching me?
- Tomi, I...
- Jesus Christ, man!
I'm sorry!
What the fuck is the matter with
Stay the fuck away from me!

[ambient sound]
[faint heartbeat]
[inaudible background horrified
Your son took his mother's car
to go and look for his brother
and arrived on the scene
as the accident took place.
The driver responsible had
already left.
[inaudible voices]
Bloody terrible thing,
They should bloody torture the bastard
that did this to your mother.
Fucking useless cops!
your family needs some happiness
This will be hard for your father.
You know what I'm saying?
He lost his only son.
No. That's not what I meant.
I wish things were different
than they are.
Don't you wish it had never
It's a little late to try and be
my father.
It was a long time ago.
People make mistakes, Mikls.
- I, I, I was never built for family.
- Well, you shouldn't have fucked her!
With Tomi not here, I need help in
the shop. You come see me, huh?
Hail Mary, full of grace.
The lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among
Blessed is the fruit of thy
womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now and
at the hour of our death.

[door closes]
You look like him.
He asked me to marry him, you
I said we weren't ready.
- They still not speaking to you?
- Barely.
Your ma has been good though.
As she would be.
You've got her grandkid.
This was supposed to be my new
I don't know where I fit now.
No one is ever going to be him.
I'll look after you.
This is a great tragedy.
But it's a credit to
and Illona
who have raised two strong
who understand the importance
of duty
to their family.
Saw the most amazing thing on TV
last night.
It was
this doco about insects and
And there were these two slugs,
It was disgusting, but it was
beautiful at the same time.
[lighter flicks]
They was twisted around
each other for like an hour.
And then they let out this like
long rope made of slime and just
hung there in the air.
And then th-they wrapped their
their sex organs around each
other and
created this amazing
connected thing.
I never thought about slugs
fucking before.
It was amazing.
[camera winding]
[camera shutter]
Hey, dad!
Can you give me a lift?
You should get up early
so you can walk to school.
Ask your mother!
Seriously, I thought about putting
two of them over there...
Yeah, that's a great idea.
Get rid of the broccoli, because
the broccoli is just not good.
- No, broccoli is good for you!
- No, the lemons are much better...
[door creaking]
This is the one.
Nice house!
She's definitely out of your
Shut up, man!
Must do alright, eh?
- Don't embarrass me, man.
- I'll try not to say anything, Dan.
- Hey! Took your time!
- Sorry.
Sorry. This is Mik.
Hey, Mik. I've heard lots about
I'm sorry about your brother.
- So what are you guys up to?
- Um just hanging around.
We're heading down to the beach.
You know, my parents are out
at the auctions if you wanted
to come in and see my room.
Is that cool, man? I mean
I can meet you at the beach.
We won't be too long.
Yeah, you won't be too long.
I heard your folks did okay with
this place. It's seriously flash!
Yeah I guess.
I didn't realise you were such a
Dad works hard.
Yeah, my dad, he packed
shelves for 20 years.
He has nothing like this!
Mik, chill out!
It's okay. Just giving me
a hard time, aren't you, Mik?
Yeah, sorry.
- Okay?
- Cool.
[door closes]
[traffic sounds]
- Hi.
- John-Paul, hi.
Friend of yours?
This is Mik,
Tomi's brother.
Thought it was a junky trying to break in.
Just about to call the cops.
No, he's good.
Thanks for keeping an eye out.
Thanks, John-Paul.
You have Tomi's jacket on.
- Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't-
- No. Keep it.
He'd want you to have it.
there's some weed in Tomi's
I don't want it here.
- Come dance!
- No, no!
Why not? Come on!
- No, I can't!
- Yeah, you can!
You can! Come on!
Sorry, John-Paul,
don't go and call-
What's wrong?
I think we've woken someone up.
It's okay.
Do you have a name yet?
I'm not sure if it's a boy or a
We wanted it to be a surprise.
I'm sorry.
No. It's not you. It's just...
The last few days
it didn't move and I thought,
after Tomi, I,
I almost didn't want it anymore.
How could anybody even
think something like that?
I'm sorry.
I'm glad you came.
I should go.
Take it.
[door creaks open]
Shit! Mik!
Come here! Come here and
close the door!
Come on!
What's the matter with you, man? You want
to bring the wrath of God down on me, huh?
- Huh?
- Ow!
What are you doing?
You want to try some?
I'll just give you a little bit
because this shit will fuck you up.
[lighter flick]
Keep it down! They'll hear!
Alright, we'll try something
Just breathe in.

You look wasted already, little
Take it off!

Mikls Varga.
Do you have anything to
I know
you've been having a difficult
But this is a very serious
I need to inventory these cans
of paint.
Now, you count them and
then you take note here, huh?
Your brother was a good
Good boy.
He wasn't the greatest
student, but he was
Listen, I want to buy that paint
you recommended,
but I can't remember which one
it is.
- I have the swatches you gave me.
- Sorry, that was my brother.
Well, can you tell me which
would be better?
Missed you at the beach the
other day.
Well, they're white.
They have different reflect.
Hey, fellas.
When you're young it makes
sense to want to rebel
when things don't go your way.
Shit news about your bro, man.
He was a good guy.
- Oh, this one is cheaper.
- That's not the point.
Your brother said that one of them had
a warm reflect and would be better.
But I can't tell.
Look, I'd rather talk to him.
Bummer he's dead though. Who are
we going to buy weed from now?
Are you trying to be funny?
That's yellow.
I don't want yellow. I want
- Right, they're both fucking white!
- What?
You fucking-Say you're fucking
When is your brother back?
I need to talk to him...
He's not coming back.
He's dead, okay? So you just
have me.
Fucking relax, psycho!
Yeah, you fucking piece of shit!
Mikls, go sweep the back!
Get off him! Get off him!
- Fuck off!
- Get off him!
Fuck off!
I think your brother would be very
disappointed by what's happened today.
You're doing it wrong.
You're doing it wrong.
You dig in the mulch.
You don't stab the dirt.
See? See?
- See?
- Okay.
Fucking useless!
Fucking waste of space!
Fucking useless!
Fuck! Fuck!
You are expelled!
You make me sick to look at you!
Fuck! Fuck!
I saw it when you were born!
Who are you?
Tketlen kis bna pocs!

[traffic sounds]
[cars honking]
[engine not starting]
Stop it!
[airplane engine]
Whose shitbox?
Ha! It's ah
my shitbox!
Want to go for a ride?
It doesn't go yet. Dad's going to get
it up and going when he wakes up.
It's a birthday present!
- What a piece of shit!
- Yeah, you're just jealous, dick!
Yeah, it's awesome.
It's our escape!
- Don't you fucking dare!
- Hey?
Don't fucking dare! Don't you
fucking dare!
Hey hey!
Shut the fuck up!
I'm trying to fucking sleep!
I'm the one that had to fucking
work all night, remember?
You fucker!
Shut up, Dan!
Give up, fucker?

[spits in Dan's face]
[inaudible] [spits in Mik's
[car honking]
Oh, you're fucking kidding!
[singing]... is the city
gonna fall in,
[mumbling lyrics]
Don't stop, it's beautiful.
We'll be...
Even in our dog years,
we were dancing
in the rain!
[music turns off]
Hey, thanks for inviting me,
I didn't.
I guess you've got nothing better to do
than come along to a wake for someone
you didn't even know.
I'm sorry. Dan invited me.
But if you,
if you prefer I didn't, I could
catch the train back.
- I don't know this one. What is it?
- It's a Tomi classic!
Travel safe,
[all screaming]
[seagulls squawking]
This night is a
to our brother, Tomi
The man with the best weed in
So let's make it a good one!
And hope that that bastard rots
in his own guilt for what he did.
Send a though to his
girlfriend, Annuska, who
didn't feel up to being here
And send, send a thought to his
Hey, walk with me. Come on.
It's so beautiful here.
Tomi taught us how to surf here.
- Mik ate a lot of sand that day.
- Bullshit!
That was you.
Pfff, fuck it.
I'll be back in a sec.
I am sorry about before.
- I don't know what happened.
- It's okay.
I'm glad you came.
Looks cosy!
I'm going to head back down.
- Stay here with us if you want.
- No, it's cool.
I'll see you guys in a bit.
See you.
[waves crashing]
What happened to my bike?
- What happened to my fucking bike?
- Mikls, don't use that language.
- Did you do this?
- Yes.
Why? I don't want you killed
How the fuck am I supposed
to get around now?
Don't swear!
Well, you can catch the fucky
fuck bus like everyone else!
Oh, you think it's funny?
Why I can't swear too?
Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck!
Why do I care what people think?
My son is dead.
You are a criminal.
You are expelled from school
Is this my punishment? Oh!
- Hey, mum. I'm sorry.
- Don't touch me!
You try to be as your brother,
but you will never be the man he
Smells good!
Ah maybe it's a little too hot.
what are you doing here?
How did you get in?
Out of the window. I just, I
just wanted to-
Do you think maybe I could, I
could stay here with you tonight?
Thanks for the plant.
Where did you get it?
Yeah, maybe put that back!
I wanted to give you these.
- I can't take that.
- It's not everything.
He fucking loved that shirt.
I hate it!
I never let him wear it.
Tried to throw it out like a
hundred times.
Try it on.
[clears throat]
Look, Mik.
I'm pretty exhausted.
- Will you be okay on the couch?
- Yeah, I'm, I'm fine.
- There's some stuff here.
- It's cool.
I can, I can sort it out.
Night. You know where everything
is. Make yourself at home.
[camera shutter]
You shit!
- I'm fat!
- No, you look good.
- Coffee?
- Yeah.
Can I do anything?
Do you need shopping or
You can have a look at the sink.
It doesn't drain properly.
Yeah, okay.
- I can do that.
- Alright.
I'll see you later, maybe.
And keep the music down!
[phone ringing]
- [on phone] Hi, Mik?
- Hey, do you have a wrench somewhere?
[on phone] I dunno.
There's tools in the
You sure you know what you're
Yeah, I'm fine. Thanks.

[aerobic TV show] [inaudible]
Four, three, two,
let's go!
Pull it back.
Use those arms. Squeeze your
shoulder blades!
[phne ringing]
- Hey, do you have a mop somewhere?
- [on phone] Ah near the back stairs.
- What's happened? Is everything okay?
- Everything's fine.
[on phone] Listen, Mik, you can't keep
calling me. I'm not supposed to take calls.
Okay, sorry.
[water running]
[groaning] Fuck!
[phone ringing]
- [on phone] Hello?
- Hi.
- [on phone] Who's this?
- Oh, it's Mik.
[on phone] Oh, Mik, what's
Nothing much. Just, just saying
[on phone]
Are you okay?
- What are you doing?
- [on phone] Just studying.
Got a free day.
Do you want to maybe hang out?
Do you want to go find somewhere
to sit?
So have you thought about
getting a job or anything
now that school is over?
- I'm sort of working in my
uncle's shop
until Dan finishes and
then we fuck off up north.
Oh yeah. He told me about that.
What did he say?
Just that you guys are thinking
about going up the coast to work.
Thinking about it?
So how come you guys
ditched me the other night?
[camera shutter]
We didn't!
We looked for you, but I had to get
back before my parents lost it.
- What, you think it was me?
- Maybe.
Mik, you're sort of in love
with him, aren't you?
Fuck! No.
- Are you?
- No. He's my best friend.
- Have you ever been with a girl before?
- Yeah, heaps.
Okay, no!
So what?
So why not?
Do you like girls?
Yeah, sure.
Try it.
It's okay.
Not like that.
[heavy breathing]
I have to go.
That was nice!
Jesus Christ!
[door opening]
Hey, man.
Was wondering when you
were going to reappear.
- How've you been?
- Where you going?
I'm meeting Phaedra.
I was going to give you a call.
She asked me to invite you over.
- What, me?
- Yeah, and me, dickhead.
Just to hang out, the three of
- Her folks are away this weekend.
- No, man. Maybe you just go.
Come on, man.
I really want you to like her.
No, I'm not into it.
She makes me feel like I've got
a future.
Maybe this isn't as serious
for her as it is for you, man.
- I mean is it?
- Why?
You don't think she likes me?
No, it's not that.
- It's just-
- Shit, man. I've got to go.
- Man, I have to tell you something.
- Later, bro.
I'd drop you home
but I'm late as it is, right?
Think about the weekend.
I sent you yesterday to fix it up and
then you disappear for I don't know what.
If it's not this, it's
I've had it!
- What were you thinking?
- I...
- I had problems with the truck.
- You couldn't call?
It's too late for that!
Where is your head?
You are ruining the business!
What sort of life can you give your
family without me to help you?
- Who else would hire you?
- Hey, leave him alone!
And look at your son, huh?
The one that's still here!
He dresses like his dead brother
so that you will notice him.
But your head is too far up
your ass to even see!
Shut the fuck up!
- Mikls.
- What?
Are you going to say watch
your mouth? Fuck you too.
I can't think of anything worse
than being stuck here with you
two for the rest of my life!
I want nothing to do with you
or your fucking hardware store.
You're supposed to be
brothers, for fuck's sake!
At least you still have each
- Mikls!
- No! Fuck off!
Anything you need? Anything
you want?
You see, maybe I can get some
How's it going?
I haven't seen you around here
Not very chatty?
Are you lost, little fella?
Why don't you come hang out with
us? We're just down the street.
No. Come on, let's leave him
- Leave him alone.
- Do you want to come and get on it with us?
What have you got?
Oh, that Spanish foot guy is on.
Wants to see the new guy's feet.
- No, no, no!
- Hey!
It's fine. He just likes feet.
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait,
wait, wait, wait, wait!
Don't give it away for free!
Okay, go!
Nice fucking socks, man!
Is she okay?
Yeah, she's fine.
30 tokens for us to kiss.
Thank you!
30 more if you two take your
shirts off.
Okay, Benny boy.
300 if we get naked and fuck!
Ha! What a romantic, huh?
Hey! It's-Where are you going?
[phone vibrating]
[on phone]
Hey, where are you?
[on phone] I think I just totally
stuffed my English exam.
- What time is it?
- [on phone] Fuck, are you just waking up?
Wish I had your life! It's
nearly two.
- Shit!
- [on phone] Almost done!
- Are you still going to Phaedra's?
- [on phone] Yeah.
- Is it still okay if I come?
- [on phone] Yeah, man. Of course.
That'd be awesome. You at
- Ah... Yeah.
- Cool.
[on phone] Okay, hey, I've
gotta go. See you later.
[door closes]
[train passing]
[camera shutter]
Leave some water in the pool!
Nice bikini.
You like it?
Don't pull me in! I don't
want to get my hair wet!
I'm serious! Don't pull me in!
I don't want to get my hair wet!
Don't get water in the house,
We can't just disappear!
Why did you bring him? I thought it
was just going to be me and you.
Well, he's been alone
a lot lately and I just-
And I want you guys
to like each other.
I feel like he doesn't
like us hanging out.
Yeah, well he'll just have
to get used to it!
Hey there.
Where's Phaedra?
She's getting dressed.
Was it fun?
Dude, her tits are amazing.
- I think I'm in love, man.
- Just go easy, man.
I just think that you
may be more into it than she is.
Don't do this.
- There's something that you need to know.
- This is fucking bullshit, man.
You're supposed to be my best
friend. And you just do that?
Okay, things are different. Maybe I'm not
in such a hurry to take off right now.
Are you fucking for real?
Hey, what's going on?
We're just talking.
- You want some more beers?
- Yeah, I'll go.
Thanks, Mik!

She doesn't love you.

I'm Mik.
Hey, Mik.
Didn't know you smoked.
I'm sorry I wasn't there.
What would you have done?
I've fucked everything.
I'm sorry I made your life hard.
You wish I was dead and it was
Tomi that was here. I wish it too!
Every single day.
- Everything I do turns to shit.
- That's not true.
Every time you look at me I remind
you that I ruined your life.
You don't know anything.
I'm hard on you because you need
I look at you, I see myself at
your age and the mistakes I made.
[door creaking]

I don't love you either.
I'm not Tomi.
I'm never going to be.
You're better off without me.
[door unlocking]
That boy's here!
Back again!
Can I please stay here?
Gonna steal anything?
I have money.
What happened to you?
My brother died.
I never had a brother.
Do you live here?
Just visiting.
I'm a ghost.
Have you done this before?
So what happened to your family?
My dad is in hospital.
Is he okay?
I don't know.
Hold your arm tight.
What about your mum?
My mum!
She's not okay.
She fucked my dad's brother.
It happened 18 years ago.
My uncle is my dad.
Everyone knows it, but
no-one talks about it.
You're a ghost too.
Ha! Better!
Come here.
Skin feels good.
[heavy breathing]
I have to go.
Stay here with us.
We can all be together.
I can see you.
I'm not a ghost.
Neither are you.
You left this here.
What the fuck happened to you,
Where have you been?
We were supposed to leave
You still want to go!
What the fuck else am I going to
What about Phaedra?
She's gone, man.
She won't return my phone calls.
Oh, you're not happy about that?
You should be, man.
You were right about her.
I'm sorry.
What for?
It's not your fault, man.
I mean you didn't fucking help
things. But-
Dan, I'm sorry.
What the fuck did you do, man?
Did you-
Did you fuck her?
Oh my fucking god!
Are you for real?
- You fucked her to ruin it for me?
- It wasn't like that.
Oh yeah? What was it fucking
like, man?
- Huh? What was it fucking like?
- I didn't mean to.
I love you!
You love me?
You love me?
You love me so much you want to
destroy my chance at a life, huh?
Is that what you want, man?
Is that what you want, man?
[heavy breathing]
Oh fuck!
Get away from me!
- Get away from me! It was me! It was me!
- Man, stop!
- I'm sorry, man.
- It's my fault!
There's something wrong with me!
- It's not your fault, man.
- It is my fault! I killed him!
He was angry,
he was running away from me.
I watched the fucking car hit
him! I watched him die!
I killed him! [crying]
Ssshhh. It was an accident,
It's going to be okay, alright?
You and me.
We're going to be okay.
[door opening]
Thank you.
- Ma!
- Don't be silly!
I made you. I'm not embarrassed
to see you.
You loved the bath when you were
a baby.
You never wanted to get out.
Why didn't you just ever tell
me, mum?
That time when I left your
when I was with Viktor,
oh that the happiest time of my
I was so free!
But he didn't want me.
But you are right.
I should have told you.
I don't see a mistake when
I look at you, Mikls.
I see
the most precious memory.
I see me.
And I see my baby boy.
I miss him so much, mum!
I know.
I miss him too.
But I will miss you too.
I know you are going.
Your brother told me.
I won't stop you.
You go
and you be happy, Mikls.
For me.
You go make your life what you
I love you, dad.
It's the big day.
Are you ready?
I'm not coming, man.
They need me here.
You sure?
I am.
It's like the first time in my
life I feel like I belong.
- I have to be here right now.
- I get it.
How am I going to get
in trouble without you, man?
I'm sure you'll manage.
I can't take that.
Take it.
You left this at mine.
[camera shutter]
I'll send it to you.
Send me a postcard from
somewhere good, yeah?
I will.
I'll be waiting for it.
Look after yourself, man.
You too.
I love you, bro.
