["Shakin' Off The Rust" by
The Blue Stones playing]
Bang my head
against the wall
Try to hold a smile
but I'm sick of it all
Everyone with
something to say
[child grunting]
Better hold my tongue
or I'll make a mistake
I get up
Show 'em what I do
Show 'em how it's done

I get up
Never turn it down
Never gonna run, I learn

You think too much
It's in my head
So I'm shaking off the rust

And you've got no trust

It's in my head
So I'm shaking off the rust

I think I broke
just a little
Ooh, whoa.
[footsteps clopping]
He's kicking like crazy.
He wants out.
Oh, yeah.
[both laughing]
Hey, what are you doing?
They're bad for you.
[Eddie] They're tasty.
[laughing] Hand me the cooler.
[drawer slamming]
Oh, Eddie.
Open it.
[Jenny chuckling]
[wrapping paper rustling]
[laughing] I love it.
[lips smacking]
After my divorce, I never
thought I'd feel complete again.
I love our family.
We're gonna have one kid in
college and one in diapers.
[Eddie laughing]
[Jenny groaning]
Oh shit, what time is it?
What time is Em
getting into town?
Around three, she's leaving
right after her final.
You better go if you wanna
be back when she gets here.
Miranda, sandwich is ready.
[music playing on headphones]
Fire, made it back again

[Miranda panting]
[heart beating]
[Miranda gasping]
[door clacking and squeaking]
[birds singing]
[Jenny sighing]
I'm heading out.
- Oh.
- It's so high.
She'll be okay,
she's climbed that
tree a thousand times.
[Jenny] When will it stop?
I don't know what to do anymore.
I don't know how to help her.
She'll come around.
But she hasn't.
It's been almost a year now.
The doc said she needed time.
I was too young
when I had her.
Hey, you're a
wonderful mother,
and you're gonna be a great
mother to our son, too.
Can you take her with you?
- Oh.
- Talk to her.
Hey, maybe you can
get through to her.
- Okay.
- [chuckles] Thank you.
[birds singing]
[dog barking]
[door clacking]
Call me in case
you need anything.
[window knocking]
[knuckles rapping]
You okay?
Look what I found
in the laundry.
[bag unzipping]
Don't forget to
take this at two.
Emily will be here by
the time you get home.
Maybe you and Em could
bake some cupcakes?
[laughing] Okay, go, go.
[Eddie laughing]
[window whirring]
[music playing on car radio]
[car engine rumbling]
So this place we're going to,
to pick up the bassinet,
it's been in the same family
for three generations.
They carve everything by hand.
Sometimes they do
demonstrations in the shop,
maybe we could stick
around and watch.
Yeah, maybe.
Only thing I can
carve is a turkey.
Why do you think
I'm a vegetarian?
[both laughing]
Hey, can we stop for a second?
Sure, everything okay?
I have to go to the bathroom.
[car engine rumbling]
[door clacking]
[Eddie sniffing]
[door closing]
[ominous music]
Nice to get away, huh?
Out in the woods?
[Wade] Yeah, remote.
Yeah, well, [throat

[Jenny gasping]
- Ah! [laughing]
- Surprise!
Hi, Emily.
[Emily laughing]
So good to see you.
Oh my God, you're huge.
You're early. [laughing]
No traffic,
and I crushed the final.
Of course you did.
[Emily laughing]
Let's hope it's in the genes.
No such luck,
my mom was the math genius.
Too bad.
[Emily] Look at you.
[laughing] I know.
Three more weeks,
but I'm ready now.
[both laughing]
Wow, bag packed,
house looks great.
You've been busy.
You could say that.
Miranda helped
a little. [laughing]
[Emily laughing]
Where is Miranda?
She went with your dad.
- Are you hungry?
- Yes.
[Jenny] Oh, let's get you
- something to eat, then.
- Aw, thank you,
thank you.
[Tupperware rattling]
I know things
haven't been easy
on you or your mom.
She was alone for a long time
after the divorce, before,
before she met me.
You know your mother loves you,
and Emily and I love you, too.
We just,
we all just want
you to be happy.
We saw you in the
tree this morning.
Maybe you shouldn't go so high.
[Miranda sniffles]
Aw, I'm sorry.
It's just sometimes
your mom gets scared.
[sighing] It, it's not that.
[Miranda sniffles]
Uh, Miranda, sweetheart,
you know you can talk
to me about anything.
I wanna help you,
so does your mom.
We all do.
It's just when you
get in that tree,
it's, it's dangerous.
[motorcycle engine rumbling]
It's high, I know,
I, well, I don't know,
but I just.
[window knocking]
[window whirring]
Remote, huh?
Uh, yeah, sure.
Go ahead, we're in the
middle of something.
Everything okay in there?
He bothering you?
Fuck off.
Yeah, we're fine.
[window whirring]
Jesus, Miranda. [laughing]
He's being weird.
[motorcycle engine rumbling]
- What are you doing?
- What?
What do you want?
[tires screeching]
[car engine roaring]
[Miranda screaming]
[motorcycle engine roaring]
Why is he following, Eddie?
[motorcycle engine roaring]
Fuck, no!
- Oh God!
- Oh my God.
[motorcycle engine roaring]
- [crying] Eddie.
- What do I do?
[gun blasting]
[Miranda screaming]
[window smashing]
[tires screeching]
[car crashing]
[Miranda screaming]
[engine stuttering]
[Miranda screaming]
Eddie! [screaming]
[engine stuttering]
Eddie. [crying]
Oh my God, Eddie.
Oh my God, we gotta go.
[Eddie grunting]
- [crying] No, please.
- It's okay, listen to me,
listen to me.
You have to tell the
girls, [grunting]
your mother I love her
- Run.
- [crying] No.
[suspenseful music]
Well, you're a real mess.
[Eddie grunting]
What's wrong with you?
[Eddie screaming]
[ominous music]
No, no.

[birds cawing]
[Miranda panting]

[Wade laughing]
Look at that.
Brought a knife to a gunfight,
didn't even use it.
[knife clattering]
[glove box opening]
[bag rustling]
[Wade munching]
What's your code?
[bottle top rattling]
It's so peaceful here, isn't it?
[throat clearing] Remote.
[Wade spitting]
[laughing] Hey.
Thank you.
[Wade laughing]
That's a good one.
[upbeat music]
You sure you're okay?
[laughing] Positive.
[sighing] It's my hormones
are all over the place.
[laughing] Seriously,
I am here to help.
Thank you.
Mm, yum.
[laughing] You have
your dad's sweet tooth.
True, that's
definitely in the genes.
And sunny disposition.
He has that because of you.
He makes me laugh. [laughing]
Really? You think he's funny?
No wonder he loves you.
Come on, he's funny.
[Emily laughing]
I think he's funny.
Whatever you say.
I got this for Anthony.
Isn't he cute?
[Jenny speaks in
foreign language]
[Emily laughing]
He's adorable.
And I got this from my friend
who's a psych major.
I think it might help.
Dad said Miranda's
still not doing well.
[phone buzzing]
Oh, thank you,
but you don't have
to worry about it.
We're taking care of it,
she'll be fine.
They should be home soon, right?
Yeah, they should.
Oh, it's your dad.
[buttons clicking]
God damn.
You're a lucky man.
Jesus Christ.
[belt jangling]
[fly unzipping]
[Wade exhaling]
[Wade grunting]
Come on.
[Wade grunting]
When I first saw the gun,
I thought he was
gonna shoot the dog,
but then he just
started shooting people.
Can I go?
I really don't wanna
be here anymore.
Just one moment.
Hey, Dwyer!
Did you get ahold of
the composite lady?
- What's that?
- The composite lady,
did you get ahold of her?
Yeah, uh, she said she
could be at the station
in 20 minutes.
- All right.
- Can I go?
We need you to stay and help
with the facial composite,
if that's okay.
He looked right at me.
Did he say anything?
[Witness] No.
Nothing at all?
"Does it matter?"
Well, yes, ma'am, I
mean, it could help.
No, that's what he said.
That guy, [gasping]
he asked, "Why are
you doing this?"
And the man just said,
"Does it matter?"
[ominous music]
[footsteps crunching]
[birds singing]
[Miranda panting]
[footsteps shuffling]
[bag unzipping and zipping]
[Miranda grunting]
[ominous music]
Need help?
[Miranda gasping and screaming]
[Wade grunting,
spitting and coughing]
[Miranda screaming]
[Miranda thudding and grunting]
[Miranda groaning]
[ominous music continues]
"Focus your efforts
on the list of duties
presented in this document
and secure additional patrol
units at the crime scene."
Not necessary.
"Submit updated brief
to the sheriff."
Yeah, no can do.
"Run all DNA evidence
through CODIS."
CODIS, right.
"If all you can do is to
secure the crime scene,
make sure to do so."
Yeah, no shit.
- [door knocking]
- Hey, Morgan.
Um, is there any word
on the new sheriff yet?
Dang it. [sighing]
That's just taking forever.
Yeah, recall, red tape.
Okay, uh, so we
ran the prints.
There's not a match.
Why didn't he kill,
- what's her name?
- Sally, it's Sally.
Sally, why, why
leave a witness?
Uh, maybe he
thought she was cute.
[scoffing] The old man?
Maybe it's like a,
like a control thing.
You know how some
guys get off on that?
[birds singing]
- Hello, I can hear you.
- Hello?
- What's your name?
- Yes.
My name is Miranda Cooper.
I'm, I'm lost in the
middle of the woods.
Please, I need help.
My stepdad has been shot.
We just left a rest stop
on the main highway.
Please help him.

Well, not much of
a contest. [sighing]

Prints from the motorcycle
and inside the car
are a match to the prints
from the gas pump handle
at the minimart crime
But they don't belong
to Michael Watkins
or anyone in AFIS.
[Officer on radio] No
All right, call me when
ballistics has something.
Okay, will do.
[ominous music]
I'm so sorry.
Um, I know that, that
this isn't easy for ya.
[paper rustling]
does this man look
familiar to you?
[pensive music]
[paper rustling]
[Jenny] No. [sighing]
Are you sure?
Can you give it a
closer look there?
Did he kill my husband?
Uh, we don't, we don't
know that yet, ma'am.
But, um, you don't, you don't
recognize him, you don't?
I've never seen him
before. [sniffing]
We also need someone to
help identify the body.
[Jenny groaning]
I'm sorry,
I'm sorry.
[Jenny crying]
- I'll go.
- No, no.
Yes, it makes the most sense.
You should stay here
and wait for Miranda
to come home.
Okay, well, here's a, um,
here's the, uh, [sighing]
the direct line to
the sheriff's office.
And I also wrote down the, um,
the number to a trauma center,
just, just in case you
need someone to talk to.
Thank you.
I'll follow you.
Call me when you get there.
I will.

We'll find her.
[Miranda panting]
[garbled radio chatter]
[Deputy Dwyer sighing]
Sorry, um,
I'm sorry, I know
that that was rough.
I haven't seen him in months.
I've been away at
school. [crying]
He was so happy with
Jenny and the baby.
Still no word on Miranda?
Uh, well, uh, right now,
the rangers are still out
there looking for her.
And we're organizing
that volunteer search
party in the morning.
That's too late.
Yeah, yeah, um,
it's not safe to go into
the woods until we find him.
I have to do something,
I can't just sit here.
I can get volunteers
through social media.
Okay, that's, that's great,
except we're not allowed
to involve civilians
until the sheriff gets here.
Wait, what?
Where's the sheriff?
Why isn't he here?
Who's in charge?
Right now, um,
Deputy Morgan is in charge.
And I can assure you
that, that he and, and, and me,
that we, we are doing
everything possible
- to find your sister.
- But you're not.
My dad is dead and
my sister is missing,
what are you doing about it?
I understand that
this is upsetting.
No, you don't. [crying]
I knew, I felt it.
Are you okay?
Hey, Em, we're gonna
get through this,
I love you.

Nice fucking trick.
No, no, wait, wait, wait,
I, I didn't do anything.
Doesn't matter,
you're all the same,
fucking deceptive,
manipulative fucking cunts.
What are you talking about?
Where's Miranda?
She's not as smart
as she thinks she is.
Please let her go. [sniffing]
You're a grown man,
she's just a little girl.
Oh, she's about to
be a dead little girl.
Oh, no, no!
Don't touch her!
Don't you fucking touch her!
I swear to God, I'll kill you,
I'll fucking kill you.

Hello, this is
Jenny, Miranda's mom.
I talked to him.
I, I talked to the guy
- who's hunting my daughter.
- Ma'am, ma'am.
- The man in the composite.
- Ma'am, slow down.
He has Eddie's phone.
You have to find her.
You have to find her now
or he's gonna kill her?
We know about Eddie's phone.
Wait, you, you spoke to him?
You, you know about the phone?
Why didn't you tell me?
How do you know he's
the guy in the composite?
Because I mentioned
the cut on his face.
You have to get out
there and get her now.
He's going to kill her,
he's insane. [crying]
Listen to me, Jenny,
we're tracking both the
suspect and Miranda, okay?
It doesn't matter what they do,
even if they turn
their phones off
or the battery dies,
we can track them.
We have this under control.
Don't worry, the
rangers will find her.
Please do not
engage the suspect.
[crying] Just find her.
[pensive music]
We will.

I'm so sorry, Mom.
No, no, baby, no, no, no.
It's not your fault.
Hey, listen to me.
The rangers are
looking for you now,
they're tracking your phone.
[Miranda] My battery's dying.
It's okay, they
can still track you,
keep it with you.
[speaks in foreign language]
I love you so much.
I love you so.
Mom? [crying]
I love you, too.
[Miranda crying]
Cell towers place
him within this range.
And they're pretty sure
Miranda's over here.
Sullivan, you copy?
[Sullivan] Copy.
They're on the south
end of Coyote Ridge.
You in range?
[Sullivan] Yeah, I'm
heading there right now.
Affirmative, stay alert,
he's armed and dangerous.
[Sullivan] Yes,
sir, copy that.
[suspenseful music]
[coyote howling]
[Miranda gasping]
It's okay, it's me.
Oh my God, you're alive.
I thought you were dead.
You're hurt.
I'm okay.
Come on, we need to keep moving.
[Jenny sighing]

"Survival, the act
or fact of living
or continuing longer than
another person or thing."
That's the Merriam Webster
dictionary definition.
So basically, I don't
have to run faster
than the man-eating
I just have to run
faster than you.
You called the others, right?
I know, but I just can't sit
here anymore doing nothing.
The deputies aren't
telling me anything,
and I don't even think they
know what they're doing.
I know it's dangerous,
you don't have to do it.
Okay, thank you.
I'll see you in an
hour at the rest stop.
And keep it quiet.
[menacing music]
[distant howling]
[Miranda and Todd panting]
[Todd] This looks
safe down here.
- Are you sure?
- Okay, come on.
It'll do for now.
Ah, ah.
[Miranda] Are you okay?
Where did you get that?
I took it from that man.
That's my mom's.
I'm sorry, I didn't think.
I was just gonna get it
to use the flashlight.
I haven't been using it,
I was afraid he'd see the light.
We took this last year.
Come on.
This looks good here.
[Todd grunting]
What's your name?
[Todd grunting]
How bad is it?
When that man started shooting,
I just ran.
I ran for a while before
I realized I was shot.
It's still bleeding.
[Todd grunting]
Why is he after you?
I don't know, he followed
us from a rest stop
and just started shooting.
He killed my stepdad
and I just ran.
I tried to go
back to my parents,
but he was still there.
There's nothing
you could've done.
You're lucky you got away.
[chocolate bar
wrapper crinkling]
It's okay, I'm not hungry.
You have the hotspot.
Do you still have your phone?
I, I called 911 and my mom,
she said people
are looking for me.
Thank God.
But he's still out there.
What do you think we should do?
I, I think we should
rest here for a while.
Is that his jacket?
Yeah, I took it from him, too.
[Miranda and Todd chuckling]
Sorry, I always
shake like that.
It's okay.
I'm pretty sure there's a
ranger station somewhere nearby.
We camp here a lot.
How close is it?
Maybe we should
make a run for it.
No, it's too dark.
I don't know which
direction to go.
Let's wait 'til sunrise,
I think we're safe in here.
I've never been
camping before.
Are you okay?
[Todd grunting]
[bag unzipping]
Here, I have meds.
Do you want some?
Why do you have meds?
I'm just supposed to
take these every day,
but I don't.
Why do you need them?
Sometimes I have
panic attacks.
You've been pretty
calm considering.
Did you take one?
I haven't taken them in weeks.
Then why have them?
Doctor says they'll help.
Help what?
If you're not panicking now.
That's a lot of pills.
Why are you keeping them?
A year ago, my
father killed himself.
And I was the
one who found him.
My God.
[scoffing] They tried all
different kinds of drugs.
They all make me feel like shit.
You don't need any of those,
there's nothing wrong with you.
You lost your dad,
it hurts.
Please, it might
help with the pain.
I'm glad we're
in this together.
Me, too.
[Todd shivering]
[Todd crying]
[Davis] It's fucking
freezing out here.
Parker, I kinda have to pee.
[Parker] God damn.
- Watch your step.
- Are you okay?
Yeah, you guys really think
he could still be out here?
- I don't know.
- Okay,
- come on, guys.
- Ooh.
- You okay?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.
When was the last time
- you saw your mom?
- Can we hurry up please?
- Sorry.
- Few weeks ago, sorry.
Davis trippin' on some crap.
- Aw.
- Do we even know what
- this guy looks like?
- Sorry.
Yeah, I do, he's old.
I keep hoping we're
not gonna see him.
[students faintly speaking]
[Ben] Is that a bone?
- Aw, fuck.
- What does it look like, Ben?
- Can we just keep walking?
- Looks like a bone.
Ben, shut the fuck up, okay?
We should branch out.
Uh, no, we should
definitely stay together.
[insects chirping]
What's that?
It's nothing,
just bugs, come on.
- Do you know Miranda?
- Are you sure?
Met her once, she's different.
Jesus, put that away.
What if it was Miranda?
What if it was that guy?
Well, it wasn't.
We've been out here a while,
we're not gonna find anything.
This is kinda nuts.
Wait, where did you
get that anyway?
Took it from my dad's closet.
Okay, come on.
[footsteps crunching]
Guys, come here.
That's Miranda's.
Oh my God.
Can't believe we
found something.
Are you sure it's hers?
[ominous music]
[sniffing] What's the smell?
Sector 1, anything to report?
[Officer] Nothing
yet, slow going.
Slow and cautious,
perp is still at large.
[Officer] Copy.
Sector 2, you see anything?
[Officer] Bear shit
and a dead possum.
Stay focused.
[Officer] Copy.
Still nothing.
Well, I guess that
could be good news.
[Officer] Deputy
Morgan, do you copy?
[Officer] We have
a situation here.
Two dead males, gunshots.
Either one look
like our suspect?
[Officer] Negative,
looks like hunters.
[Deputy Morgan sighing]
All right, have two
men secure the area.
The rest of you
continue your search.
[Officer] Copy that.
Jesus, two more?
Guys, you need to see this.
[ominous music]
That's what I mean
by strategic default.
See, the value of your

owe on the mortgage.
What do you do?
What do you do?
You stop making payments.
Now, it's not your
It's the bank's problem.
And fuck the bank.
So if your business
is going under,
you just tuck your
tail between your legs,
close up shop?
No, hell no.
You take as much
unsecured debt as you can,
in the name of the
business, of course,
you cut expenses to the
you leverage that cash
to open a new business.

By the time the bank figures
your old business is

out what you're doing.
And keep moving forward

You're either predator
or you're prey.
Survival of the fittest.
Simple concept,
but it's not as
easy as it sounds.
You gotta take risks.
Yeah, those who
can't do, teach.
[ominous music]
Why do I waste my time?
You know what? Cut the camera.
Everybody get out.
Come on, I'm letting
you go early, okay?
You're welcome.
Go, everybody get the
hell out of my classroom.
Make sure and post
the lecture today.
Don't fuck it up like last time.
And cancel my office hours,
I'm going home.

about all this noise.
What the hell's
wrong with your face?
Why are you staring
at me like that?

Miranda, run.

I'm, I'm so sorry,
I didn't know what to do.
[Miranda screaming]
[wind blowing]
[wind blowing continues]
All right, listen up.
Make sure everyone has
the new coordinates.
We lost track of the son
of a bitch once already.
We'll meet at East Fork,
and then we'll head
straight out, all right?
We just received information
that Miranda's phone
is pinging off a tower located
near the East Fork Station.
We're heading there now.
Does that mean you found her?
Not yet, no, um,
we're close.
Is there something we can do?
- Yeah.
- Uh, no, no.
Uh, uh, right now, you
guys just stay put,
we have a team that...
Can we go with you
and organize the volunteer
search party there?
- Yeah.
- Please.
All right, uh,
but, but you can't go
in until it's safe,
and that will be when
I tell you it's safe.

We wanna help
look for Miranda.
No, no, you guys
stay at the station
until we find out more.
- What?
- Seriously?
Yeah, you heard me, come on,
let's go.
[Miranda] Help!
Okay, uh, Collins, Dennehy,
Williams, take the north.
Cantana, Jensen and
I will head south.

He's right behind me.
- Hold it!
- Wait, wait,
- wait, wait, wait.
- Shit.
Miranda, get down!
[Deputy Dwyer and
Emily thudding]
[Officer] Don't shoot.
- Wait.
- Don't shoot.
Don't shoot, I

- [door banging]
- No! [grunting] No!
What are you doing here?
Where's my daughter?
Where is she?
Calm down, Jenny.
- Why are you here?
- I want you to kill me.
You're psychotic,
where's my daughter?
- Tell me where she is.
- Maybe I am.
- Maybe I am.
- What have you done
- with her?
- Maybe I am.
What have you done
- with her?
- Take the fucking gun
and shoot me, please.
Here, take the gun.
[Jenny heavily breathing]
Stop asking the same question
over and over, Jenny.
Here I am, do it!
You killed, Eddie.
I did.
You killed my husband.
Where is my daughter?
Where is she?
She's dead, Jenny,
I fucking killed her!
Don't you get that?
Come on!
Come on, come on,
come here, come here.
You can do it.
We'll do it together, okay?
Come on.
I know you can do it.
[gun clicks]
[Jenny gasping]
[Wade laughing]
You have to rack the gun, dummy.
[gun cocks]
[Jenny crying]
[siren blaring]
[Jenny] I can't answer
the phone right now.
You know what to do.
Other than mild dehydration
and a few scrapes and bruises,
she's fine.
I can't get through,
it keeps going
straight to voicemail.
Uh, we still need
her to get checked out
by a doctor at the hospital,
but other than that,
she's in good shape.
Here it is,
this is where Todd is.
It's almost straight
in from here.
I left a backpack
to mark the spot.
It was his mom's.
Okay, well, hey, don't worry,
we'll find him.
The last time you
saw Wade Bennett was,
it was in this area.
So that's his name.
Yeah, that's it.
And he was pissed.
- Hello?
- Hi, Emily Cooper?
Uh, my name is Randy,
I'm a nurse here at
the maternity ward.
And your mom, or your
stepmom, I guess, Jenny,
is here with us.
She's very concerned
about Miranda.
Can you tell me about
Oh, that's, that's great news,
she'll be very relieved.
Yeah, yes, she is in labor,
but I'm sure it's still
several hours away.
She would love it if you
could do her a big favor
and stop by the house
to pick up her overnight bag
that she left behind.
Yes, [laughing] yes,
uh, very exciting.
Little brother's on the way.
Okay, bye-bye.
Our lucky day,
they're on the way.
[Jenny muffled groaning]
[ominous music continues]
[Miranda] I'm just
so hungry. [laughing]
[Emily] I'll make
you a sandwich.
[Eddie laughing]
- Mom?
- Welcome.
[ominous music]
- Get away from her.
- No, no, no, no,
- it's okay, it's okay.
- Hey, hey, hey.
It's okay.
Oh my God.
Have a seat.
Take it off.
[Wade laughing]
Miranda, you're here next to me.
Hello, Emily Cooper.
Nice to meet you in person.
We spoke on the phone.
Thanks for bringing
Miranda home.
Have a seat.
[Wade sighs]
This is nice.
Let's hold hands.
Bow your heads.
Close your eyes.
[Wade deep breathing]
Dear Lord,
thank you
for your random
acts of betrayal,
adultery, wrath and violence.
For destroying
families and lives.
Leaving nothing but death
and destruction in your wake.
Thank you for rage
and the thrill of the chase.
And thank you for these
three beautiful women,
and for the glorious day ahead.
Okay, the hand
holding is over now.
Let go!
Let's get started, shall we?
Sometimes when my
wife was in the mood,
she enjoyed sharing
a bottle of bubbly.
Ah, my wife,
so beautiful.
Where is she now?
She's at home.
Where I left her.
In bed,
Did she do that to your face?
You like it?
God, you look so much like her.
Is that why you chose me?
Is that why you
killed my stepdad
and followed me
through the woods,
because I look like
your dead wife?
No, Mom.
[scoffing] You're pathetic,
you're nothing.
Eddie and Todd and even my
dad, who was out of his mind,
are better men than you.
You're a worthless
piece of shit.
And I look like
you're dead wife?
But I'm not dead. [laughing]
I'm alive.
[Wade screaming]
[Jenny screaming]
Ah! Emily, help me, help me!

[Jenny] Run!

It doesn't matter.

[Wade thuds]
[birds chirping]
[Emily sniffles]
[sad music]
Oh, my baby.
- Come.
- Mom. [crying]
No, no, no, no.
I love you so much.
I love you.
I love you.
[Jenny laughing]
I fixed it. [sniffing]
[sighing] Thank you.
the last thing he said was,
"Tell your mother I love her."
- I'm so sorry, Mom.
- No, no, no, no, no, shh.
I'm sorry you had
to go through that.
So sorry.
[Miranda crying]
Oh, my girls.
[Miranda laughing]
[Jenny laughing]
[all crying]
My water broke.
Right, right now?
[Nothing Else Matters by
Phoebe Bridgers playing]
- Oh my God.
- He's coming.
- We have to go.
- Yeah, we have to go.
- Oh, oh my God.
- Shh, take it easy,
take it easy.
[Miranda laughing]
Come on, come on.
[Jenny and Miranda laughing]
- He's coming.
- Oh my God.
Okay, okay, Mom, breathe.
Breathe, Mom, breathe.
So close, no matter how far
[Jenny] Stop, bag.
[Miranda] Oh my God, the bag.
[door clacking]
Couldn't be much
more from the heart
[Emily] Just breathe, breathe.
Forever trust in who we are
- You good?
I got the bag.
And nothing else matters
- Ah, okay.
- I got it, go, go, go.
[door slamming]
[car engine rumbling]
Trust I seek and
I find in you
Every day for
us something new
Open mind for a
different view
And nothing else matters
Never cared for
what they say
Never cared for
games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for
what they know
And I know
So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much
more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No, nothing else matters
