The Last Tree (2019) Movie Script

On your marks,
get set,
Come on! Faster!
Faster! Wolf Gang, you can do it.
Come on!
- All right?
- You all right, mate?
Wolf Gang!
Wolf Gang! Wolf Gang!
Wolf Gang! Wolf Gang!
- (laughs) No! No!
- Oh, he face-planted the floor!
(laughs) Get Femi. Get him.
- Oh, no.
- Get him.
- Push him.
- Get down!
Three, two, one...
(all) Wolf Gang! Wolf Gang! Wolf Gang!
One, two, three!
Wolf Gang!
- Again.
- (yells)
(woman) You're not gonna get
any chocolate until you eat your greens.
I spoke to your mum today.
She's definitely
coming to visit tomorrow.
To see you, obviously.
(woman) I know it's been a while,
but she's super excited.
Can I go to my room?
Come here.
She's not coming to take you away.
Do you promise?
Here you are.
And tomorrow,
you eat all your greens, right?
(indistinct chatter)
Go on, Nathan.
Go on, Nathan. Go on, Nathan!
- Hold him, Nathan.
- Go on, Femi.
Femi, wriggle out of it.
You've got to wriggle out of it.
Nathan, get out of there, Nathan.
- Get out of there, Nathan.
- Get off!
- Come on, Femi, hold him! One!
- Pull him off!
- Come on, Nathan. Get out of it.
- Two!
- Get out of it, Nathan.
- Three!
He's gone.
My boy, hm? Come.(chuckles)
Ah! It's been too long.
You've grown up.(chuckles)
I think he probably just needs to get
cleaned up and have some food.
- (mother chuckles)
- Yeah.
You've nothing to blame yourself over.
He's a good boy.
Well, you've done a good job.
I want to take him back.
- Are you gonna tell him that?
- (mother)We both will.
I'll tell him. I just...
- Just give me some time.(exhales)
- OK.
Can I be excused?
(mother) Finish your food first.
(car engine starts)
(car drives off)
Go on, then!
Go on. Come at me, then.
Come at it, Rick.
- Go on, boys!
- Oh, no. This is not good.
- Go on, tackle him.
- Get him!
Oh, come on.
- Yes!
- What a goal!
(woman) You know I love you.
- Hmm-hm.
- Hmm-hm.
Your mother loves you too.
Do you know that?
She's been trying to sort a place
for the both of you.
She's ready now.
She's ready to take you back.
Are you just gonna let her take me?
I know it's hard.
- You promised.
- (sighs)
She's your mother.
- I know.
- (bangs table)
- Femi!
- (door slams)
(girls laugh)
Wolf Gang! Wolf Gang!
Wolf Gang! Wolf Gang! Wolf Gang!
Wolf Gang!
(knocking at door)
Oh. This is my friend, Bimpe.
She has been a real blessing
in helping me get set up in London.
- Good afternoon.
- This is Mary.
And my boy, Olufemi.
Remember Auntie Bimpe?
(speaks Yoruba)
- Fine boy.
- Ah, let me help you with this.
I think that's everything.
We'll wait in the car.
You remember how proud I am of you.
And I'm always here.
All in?
(car engine starts)
(distant thunder)
(siren wails)
(car indicator ticks)
We're almost there.
- (car door closes)
- (mother speaks Yoruba)
(lift beeps)
Careful. There's pee there.
Welcome home.
That one is yours.
There's so much we can do here
now that you're home.
We can paint it or...
or even get wallpaper.
Are you hungry?
I made stew this morning
and we have rice.
Or even a little plantain.
You must be tired.
I'll leave you to get ready for bed.
My room is just downstairs,
if you need anything.
And so is the bathroom.
(floorboards creak)
(mother sings)
(singing continues)
(footsteps approach)
But you've had this before.
I made it for you that time
when I visited and you liked it.
- Do you have any cereal?
- No.
OK. So I'll finish work at 5pm
and then I start
another cleaning job straight after.
So you'll be here by yourself most of
the time before you start school.
But that doesn't mean you should just
be sitting here watching television.
You're not a lazy boy. So I expect you
to take care of the house.
I need you to sweep,
wash your clothes, wash the plates
and please make up your bed.
What are you...? No, you're just...
you're just putting dust everywhere.
You do it in the direction outside,
towards outside.
And you use these muscles
in your arms here,
otherwise you won't move anything.
Here. Go.
Please, please. Don't go out anywhere
until I can show you around, OK?
(door closes)
(distant chatter)
(loud chatter)
(music playing)
(sings quietly)
(chatter on TV)
(mother sighs) Olufemi.
(man on TV) You never know
what's coming in this game.
What are you doing?
Look at this place. I told you what
to do. You haven't done anything.
- I said I would do it later.
- I did not raise you to be rude.
You didn't raise me.
(mother)Are you... Are you crazy?
Who are you talking to like that?
- (thuds)
- (groans)
(mother) Never in your life
talk to me like that again.
Stand up!
(phone rings)
- Nan.
- (Mary) How are you, love?
I miss you.
Hold your ears with your hands,
like this.
Bend and straight.
And bend and straight.
Keep doing that. Quick.
If you move from that place
before I tell you,
I will come back here
and I will beat you again.
- Thank you.
- (man)No worries.
There you go. Have a nice day.
(Mary) I miss you too.
How are you finding everything?
(Femi) I'm OK.
- (Mary) You sure, love?
- Yeah.
- (Mary) You settling in OK?
- (Femi) Yeah.
I love you, Nan.
(knocking at door)
Are you sure you don't
want me to take you?
I'm sure.
- Close your eyes.
- Why?
I want to pray so your first day
is a success.
(speaks Yoruba)
Bless Femi as he embarks
on his first day at school.
Send angels to encamp around him.
Teach him to be the head
and not the tail.
(speaks Yoruba)So that he may
have success all the days of his life.
(speaks Yoruba)
In Jesus's name we have prayed.
- Amen.
- Amen.
But Mary's a Christian.
Did she not teach you how to pray
or take you to church?
There's so much I want to show you.
One of these days,
I'm going to take you back home.
We're a very spiritual family.
Your name Olufemi means "God loves me",
so you can't be godless.
And this isn't just about church.
We have our own religion,
practised by our family for generations.
So it's important that...
But that's a story for another time.
Be good.
(children chatter)
(bell rings)
(female teacher)
Cedric, sit down, please.
Calm down. Thank you.
OK. We have a new student
that I'd like to introduce you to.
This is Olufemi.
- (laughs)
- Femi.
- (teacher)Sorry?
- Femi.
- (teacher)In the register it says...
- Just Femi.
- (laughs) Femi.
- (teacher )OK, thank you.
- "Olufemi."
- (teacher) Dean.
I'm sure you'll all make him
feel welcome.
(Dean mimics African speech) Femi!
Dean. That's somebody's name.
How would you feel about somebody
making fun of your name?
- My name's not Olufemi. I'm all right.
- (children laugh)
Yes, thank you, Dean.
I want you all to introduce yourselves
throughout the day.
OK? So find a moment to go over and
make sure that he knows your name
and welcome him to the school.
(girls chant skipping song)
- Nesrine.
- Here, sir.
- Tina.
- Here, sir.
Has anyone seen Lebechi?
And a new student today.
Olufemi Oluwale.
- Just Femi.
- It says Olufemi on my register.
- Just Femi.
- Sir, just Olufemi.
- (teacher) Quiet, Dean. Day?
- Here, sir.
And Tess.
Olufemi, what's going on with your trim?
And what's going on
with your shoes as well?
(all groan)
Your hairline's looking kind of bent
as well, man.
(all groan)
- (teacher)Do you wanna get sent out?
- What you gonna do?
(children shout)
Out the way! Out the way!
- (children chant) Fight! Fight!
- (teacher) That's enough.
That's enough. Out. Out.
That's enough. Calm down.
(children groan)
Do you know they want to suspend you?
On your first day.
What are you thinking, Femi?
- He started it.
- I'm talking, you are talking.
- But he did though.
- (speaks Yoruba)
I had to leave work to come and get you.
Do you pay my bills?
Do you pay any bills in this house, eh?
Do you pay any bills?
Olufemi! Olufemi!
- (ball bouncing)
- (children chatter)
(boy 1) Yeah, look, look.
It's in. It's in.
(boy 2) Go on!
- (ball bounces)
- (boy 2) What a goal! Come on.
(boy 1 )Free ball. Free ball.
Ooh! And again!
- Unlucky.
- Get me the ball.
- Yes, to him?
- To him.
Yes, to me!
- Oh!
- (boy)Ooh, nice goal. Nice.
- (Femi) Nice to see you.
- (boy) Nice to see you, Femi.
- See you later.
- See you.
(light buzzes)
Hurry up! Hurry up! Quick.
- See the boss man's face? (laughs)
- (laughs)
- What did you get?
- I hit the jackpot. We've got...
- Wine gums.
- Wine gums and that?
Next thing, some liquorice.
Look at this next flavour though.
Classic cheeseburger.
- Those things are batty.
- Is it?
Look. You think you've hit big,
but I've hit the jackpot so...
- Yeah?
- Swear. Swear down?
- Yeah, I swear.
- What you saying? Come on then.
Ooh... ah!
Yo, is that it?
- You don't care about dental hygiene?
- Oh, my days. Tayo, man.
I can tell you, man, don't care about
dental hygiene but some of us do.
- Look at your teeth.
- Look at you, bruv.
- Shut up.
- This is why I bought this. For you.
What's this? A toothpick?
- Yeah, it's a toothpick.
- Nah, cuz. You're an idiot.
- Tayo, you're wack, bro.
- Hey, you too, bro.
Fam, shut up, man.
(overlapping dialogue)
- Waste man, what's he on?
- It's both of you, fam.
Chill. Are you going to Tamara's thing?
- Yeah, bro. Are you man going?
- Nah.
- Bring me, man.
- No plus-ones, my brother.
- She's ugly anyway, man.
- What do you mean, "no"?
Yo, that's Mace.
Let's just keep walking. Chill.
Oi, oi, Mace.
Oi, come here.
I said come here.
Ooh, man like Fems, what you saying?
I like this little youth, you know.
He was running tings in the school
with his little crew.
- Yeah, something like that.
- Cool.
Well, this little prick here's a snitch.
And he's gonna squeal for us
like a pig on all fours, aren't you?
And if you don't, my boy Femi is gonna
make sure the job gets done, aren't you?
Yeah. Well, he's not squealing.
Handle that.
Do it.
Get on all fours and squeal.
Do it, Billy.
- (clicks tongue)
- (groans)
- Squeal.
- (Billy squeals)
- (Mace) I wanna hear proper snorting.
- (squeals)
- Louder.
- (Billy squeals loudly)
(laughs) All right.
Get the fuck out of here. Hurry up.
Oi, Femi. You got a phone?
You can't be a boss without a phone,
Ah, see you later.
- Cool. You lot get out of here then.
- Hurry up, bruv.
Shut up.
See you around, Femi.
(door closes)
- ( "Crystal" by New Order)
- (exhales)
(ball bounces)
Hey, Femi.
- How was school?
- Fine.
Auntie Bimpe's having a small gathering
at her place tonight.
Do you want to follow me?
I already told you I'm busy.
- Doing what?
- Stuff.
What stuff is more important than
just spending some time together?
Mary called again.
I thought you said you were
going to call her back.
- I will.
- When?
Whenever I'm less busy, innit?
You are here to focus on your exams, eh?
I don't want you running around
like all these other boys.
- (speaks Yoruba)
- Yes. Excuse me.
(door slams)
( "Just Like Heaven" by The Cure)
Yo. What you listening to?
Er... Tupac. Hit 'Em Up.
Have you heard the new Wiley ting?
Yeah. It's not too bad.
They played it at that thing last night.
- Look at this guy, man.
- Yo. How you doing?
Chill. You're always jumping round, man.
Why you so hyper?
I dunno. Must've got ADHD
or something, innit?
(Femi) We're trying to get
respect out here.
- You can't be acting like that.
- Smelly Tope. What you saying?
Yo, yo, yo, yo. I'm talking to you.
Don't ignore me.
- Come here.
- What?
Let me see this shit. What's this?
- Blue horseshit.(laughs)
- (Tayo) Tope. Don't let him do that.
What's she gonna do?
What you gonna do, blick shit, huh?
Yo, he said you a blick.(laughs)
What's blacker,
her shoes or her forehead?
Oh, yo. What you thinking?
- Definitely her forehead, innit?
- (laughs)
- What, you gonna cry?
- Hold on. That's enough.
(Dean) No, hold on. Cry.
Just let the tears fall out.
Next time, innit?
(mother) Femi.
Are you there?
(Femi) Yeah.
(mother) Femi.
Why is it so dark in here?
(switch clicks)
Saving electricity, innit?
- You're always complaining about it.
- What's wrong?
You never want to talk to me
about anything.
OK. Well, at least you're home.
We can have dinner together for once.
I have to go out.
(mother) Where?
- Study group.
- What study group?
With my friends.
(mother) I don't feel like we're living
in the same house. I come, you go...
Look, I'm sorry you're lonely
but it ain't my fault he's not here.
(mother) Who?
Whoever my dad is.
- You don't know anything.
- I know he left.
That's all I have to know.
And one day, I'll leave too.
(door beeps)
(doors open)
Hey. Where you been?
What took you so long, bruv?(echoes)
Hurry up. Mace is waiting for you.
In there, bruv. Go.
My lieutenant. Come over here.(echoes)
Sit down.
You see, when you're the boss,
you got to look after the bottom line.
Keep your mind focused.
Is your mind focused right now?
Is it focused right now?
Then tell me,
what's a man without respect?
You see, school's good, man.
School is good.
But what are you gonna do after?
Sure you can work for
one of them white companies.
Let them pimp out your life.
you can work for yourself and be free.
You wanna be free?
Here y'are.
Hold it in.
- (coughs)
- (laughs)
My lieutenant.
(male teacher) So here we are again.
I'm sure you've heard a few things
this evening
that you didn't really want to hear.
They are only saying the truth,
since he wants to destroy his life.
Moving forward,
I want to see how we can work
into getting him through these exams.
Clearly we cannot move anywhere
because he refuses to listen.
- (teacher) Femi?
- What?
"What"? Who are you "what"-ing?
Is that how I taught you
to speak to an elder?
- (teacher) It's OK.
- No, it's not OK.
There is nothing OK
about his rotten attitude.
Do you know how embarrassing it is
to come here over and over again
- and hear the same thing?
- Hm.
No improvement.
And tonight was the worst.
You are not failing me,
you are failing yourself.
- Hey.
- What do you want?
What you doing out here?
Just waiting for Mum and Dad to finish.
I should go...
- No, wait.
- Why?
What are you listening to?
Um... just some weird stuff.
I don't really know.
- Do you mind if I listen?
- Why?
Why not, innit?
( "Pictures of You" by The Cure)
Crying for the death of your heart
You were stone white, so delicate
Lost in the cold
You were always so lost in the dark
Remembering you
How you used to be
Slow drowned, you were angels
So much more than everything
Hold for the last time
then slip away quietly
Open my eyes
But I never see anything
If only I'd thought
of the right words...
(music continues over headphones)
I told you it was weird.
No, it's cool.
Why are you being nice to me?
You know the whole light skin,
dark skin thing is a joke, right?
You're the prettiest girl in school.
You shouldn't let it get to you.
You shouldn't encourage it.
- I didn't encourage it. I stopped him.
- After he had his fun.
What are you doing right now?
I came out here, saw you,
thought we could have a chat.
Femi, we don't talk. We're not friends.
I'm not friends with your friends.
I don't know what you're playing at.
My mum's right in there, you know.
She knows who you are.
I told her about you lot.
I don't know if you're trying to be
nice to me but you're a bit late, man.
You should have been nice last week.
You should've stopped him
the week before that.
Or the week before that.
I ain't trying to do nothing.
I just wanted to chat to you, innit?
Talk to me about what?
What, how black I am? How blick I am?
Prettiest girl in the fucking school.
Say that when your friends are there.
What do you want me to say?
Do you want me to say I'm sorry?
(Tope)I don't want you
to say sorry, I just...
I just want you to get it.
Just get it.
I should go.
Living room. Now.
Is that it?
No stick?
I hate you.
(door slams)
(Mace) I got pulled over
by this idiot police officer last week.
He said it was one of them
routine checks, you know?
I asked him, "What's the difference
between me and the prime minster?"
I know in his mind he was thinking,
"A lot of things, you fucking nigger."
He has the legal right to kill, steal,
do whatever he has to do
to protect what's his. But me?
If I do all those things,
I get sent to jail.
The prime minister's the biggest
fucking nigger on the road.
(car doors close)
Go check.
(doors creak)
How's the phone, is it good?
Get you an upgrade soon.
I'll sort that, yeah?
Nah, it's OK.
OK? Nah, you should never settle
for OK, man.
Let that be a life lesson, yeah?
- You scared?
- (footsteps approaching)
(mutters under his breath)
Yo, don't move. If you hear anything,
shout us but do not move.
(police siren in the distance)
(distant clang)
(distant thud)
(train passes)
(brakes screech)
(footsteps approach)
- (car engine starts)
- What happened?
What happened back there?
Yo, what happened back there?
Gonna be your turn next time.
I'ma call on you tomorrow, yeah?
Ain't got no blood on it. Take it.
All right, cool.
(car engine starts)
(car drives away)
- (mother) Where have you been?
- (Femi) What's he doing here?
You told me you had football practice
with the school team. There wasn't any.
(speaks Yoruba )Sit down!
If I knew you was coming,
I would have told a better lie.
- That doesn't help.
- (Femi) This isn't your classroom.
And you ain't my dad so you can't...
- Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh...
- Femi, believe it or not,
I grew up around here and a lot
of the boys I went to school with
are in jail as we speak.
And I was close to joining them.
Now, I know to you, I'm just
a boring teacher who's old as fuck.
But I haven't always been this preppy.
Now, your mum and I had a chat
at parents' evening,
and I think you can really
pull through these exams.
You've got to let me help you.
Your wife's pregnant, right?
That's what you said in class
the other day.
Yeah, she is.
First child?
You're gonna be there for the kid,
(teacher) Yeah, I have to be,
but what's your point?
I'm gonna get some sleep.
Got class tomorrow.
See you there, sir.
(teacher) Femi.
I appreciate what you did last night.
Seriously, man.
Trust is the biggest thing in this game,
and you showed guts.
If you are smart enough,
you can get to a position
where you are making decisions,
you're not taking orders
from anyone else.
You can go places.
What is it you want me to do?
(chuckles) Patience, big man.
All in due time.
Do me a favour, get me some water
and chewing gum in the shop, please.
Get yourself what you want
and keep the change.
(shop bell rings)
(punching continues)
- Mace, that's enough!
- Get the fuck off me!
Let's go.
- What happened?
- (Mace) Where the fuck were you?
- You told me to stay in the car.
- Just drive.
(car engine starts)
(Mace) Go inside and sit down.
Where you going?
Can I go?
- (Mace) How much have we got?
- ( woman) Who's that?
(Mace) He's cool.
(door creaks)
(woman) Shauna.
Come here.
(exhales) All right? How you doing?
(Mace) You know you and Dwayne
are the only ones that know about this.
I've got a lot of enemies.
A man's got to do what he can
to protect his family.
We're brothers now.
I have to get back to class.
All right.
(no sound)
What the fuck, man?
- Let's go, man. Dickhead.
- You're bugging me. What the fuck?
Are you all right?
Do you want me to call someone?
Femi, what's wrong?
(male teacher) Femi!
You missed my class today. Again.
- (Femi) I'm not in the mood today, sir.
- I'm not in the mood either.
You come in here stinking of weed,
you've got specks of blood all down you.
I told your mum you wouldn't fail,
not on my watch.
(Femi) That's where you fucked up.
What do you want from me?
Always a tough guy.
Your mum told me
about your foster care. (echoes)
I can't imagine what that
must've been like.
- (Femi) That ain't your business.
- (teacher) Confusion.
Yeah, and what?
You don't know shit about it
so stop right there.
Or what?
- (Femi) I ain't got time for this shit.
- No, no. No, no, no.
Get the fuck out of my way.
You think I'm playing with you?
I call my boys and you're fucked.
You hear me?
Call them.
You really think those boys
are your friends?
You've got every right to be angry.
My parents leave me because they
don't care enough about me to raise me.
Don't fuck with me, man.
Send me off to the country
to people that aren't my own.
I mean it.
- And they left you, Femi.
- Don't fuck...
- They didn't care enough to raise you.
- Don't fucking fuck with me, man!
I said don't fuck with me. You hear me?
I said don't fuck with me!
Don't fuck with me, OK?
Don't fuck with me!
It's OK.
Come on.
(no sound)
(Femi sobs)
Aren't you gonna say hello?
This is our guest, remember?
(Mary) Don't forget to eat your peas.
When I was here...
you shouldn't have said yes when
I asked you if I could stay for good.
I mean, I know why you did it.
But I believed you.
Messed me up for a while.
I should never have said it.
I was too attached.
How are you two?
- Can I ask you a question?
- Hm-hmm.
Why do you do it?
I mean, what's in it for you?
Is it the money?
I don't know.
I wouldn't change being part of you
or Ola or any of you for all the world.
I'm proud of all of you.
That's what's in it for me.
In a way, you're all my boys.
But we're not.
(phone vibrates)
All right, one more time.
I'm gonna jump...
Oh, my God. You're too strong.
(both grunt)
- (Ola) Turbo.
- (Femi) Turbo. Oh, my God.
(Ola) Whoa!
(Femi) All right, you have to carry me
on your back now. You ready?
Three, two...
- (Ola groans)
- (Femi laughs)
You've got to be stronger than that.
(both yell)
(Femi) We're going too fast. Slow down.
Slow down.
(Femi) What you doing?
I hope you come and see us again soon.
Let me know how it goes.
(Ola) Bye.
See you.
(knocking at door)
Come in.
So how was Mary?
It was OK.
And how are you?
I'm OK.
I'll leave you to do your work.
There's jollof in the pot.
(bell rings)
(loud chatter)
Bro, there's, like, five people
speaking in the class.
I say two words to my friend, "Yo,
give me the sharpener," or something,
and he gets onto me.
- You know what she's like, man.
- Why is she like that, man?
Why is she hating on me?
You saw the way she was
at parents' evening.
Yeah. So it's not just me, yeah?
- It's not just you, my G.
- It's a black thing.
- (laughs)
- Yeah?
- Maybe.
- (car tyres screech)
Yo, don't turn around.
Just keep walking.
If anything happens, you keep walking.
Is something wrong with your phone?
Why didn't you tell me?
You know I would've got you a new one.
Mace, man. Come on.
- Come on, bro.
- Big boy, innit?
- Touching people and that.
- I know you're...
Don't ever fucking touch me
in your life!
- Don't you ever fucking touch me.
- Get off me, brother!
Don't say my name as well.
Get the fuck out of here, man.
Are you dumb? What!
(clears throat)
Got a big mouth, innit?
- Hey, get in the car please.
- What?
(Mace) I said get in the car!
I thought we had an understanding.
I thought we were brothers.
I guess not.
You know what has to happen if you don't
do this. I don't want that to happen.
- Nothing has to happen.
- Yes, something has to happen.
All right.
(clears throat)
(clicks fingers)
(car door opens)
You ain't got to do this, man.
Fuck! (coughs)
- (groans)
- Get up!
- (Femi gasps)
- Hm?
- (thuds)
- (groans)
(car engine starts)
(water drips)
I didn't bring you here for this.
(sobs) I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
No. I know how you look at me.
I... I just wanted
what was best for you.
I... I wanted you
to have the best opportunities,
things I couldn't have,
and I don't know what I could have done.
I didn't have anybody.
I didn't have anything. And I just...
I always loved you.
I will always love you.
Even... even if you hate me.
I don't... I don't hate you.
(bell rings)
You coming in?
Get up then.

Welcome, ma'am. Welcome, sir.
Can I help you with your bag?
Where is he? Why are we waiting here?
Your father's wife
wants to meet you first.
- (clears throat) Hello.
- (speaks Yoruba)
- This is my son, Olufemi.
- Hello, ma'am.
- Femi, how are you?
- Fine, thank you.
(clears throat)
Hmm. Erm, OK...(speaks Yoruba)
I'm just going to go.
Do you want some water, sir?
No, thank you.
Tea, sir?
No. I'm good.
- Juice, sir?
- No, I'm all right. Thanks.
- Food, sir?
- No, I'm... I'm fine.
- You don't want anything at all, sir?
- No, I'm absolutely fine. Thank you.
Thank you, sir.
- You OK?
- Hm-hmm. He's waiting for you.
(father) You must have questions.
(Femi) Why is my mum upset?
(father) Do you know what I do?
(Femi) You're a pastor.
(father) Your mum
says you are not religious.
I'm not even surprised.
She's always been a wildflower.
You know she wasn't raised
by her own mother and father.
(father) Yes.
She has no understanding of authority.
She didn't know how to submit
the way a wife should.
That woman still believes
in the old spiritual nonsense.
Anyway, you are home now.
If you really cared about that,
then why have you waited so long?
It wasn't my choice for you
to be raised by Oyinbo.
She had no support.
Where were you?
Why didn't you invite me
to come and live with you?
I mean, you've got plenty of space.
- Wale.
- Yes, sir.
Come here.
- (speaks Yoruba)
- All right, sir.
Ade, Sade, meet Femi, your brother.
How did it go?
What did he say?
Nothing important.
Let's go.
(car horn blares)
(loud chatter)
(machines whir)
(engine revs)
- Wait, wait, wait.
- Hey! Hey! What are you doing?
- Oh, no, no, no.(speaks Yoruba)
- Thank you.
Oh! That was nice.
Come, come, come. Play. Right, right.
Oh, in the middle.
Come on. You've got it.
