15 Days (2019) s01e04 Episode Script

Episode 4

1 I'm going to accept the land from Huw.
And we can split it four ways.
You're not giving this land to that bastard, Rhys.
You're just not going to do that! Dad finds out that his brother's having an affair with his wife of 40-odd years, and the next day he's dead?! That's no coincidence.
She's not Miss Perfect.
She's played away.
Sara doesn't love me.
You know that, right? - I don't want you to go.
- We'll still speak every day.
I'm serious.
He's made a fool of you, Mum.
It's time you divorced him and you got half the farm for yourself.
Why don't you tell us about White Meadow, Gareth? - [THUMP.]
- Hey! You! 200 houses.
What's the profit in that, Gareth? 20 million? 30? - [HE GRUNTS.]
- Get off me! [SHE SCREAMS.]
It wasn't suicide, Sara.
How do you know? [GUNSHOT.]
[HE BREATHES RAGGEDLY.]
[BABY CRIES.]
Nothing happened.
Nothing happened between us.
I can almost see the pound signs in your eyes, Mike.
What? Had a change of heart since you found out about White Meadow? You be careful, Nia.
If you breathe a word to your sister Melanie's drawing up the paperwork now.
What paperwork? And who's Melanie? A partner at the firm.
And a lawyer.
She's across all this.
So we're all going to be millionaires.
How's that going to feel? I think it's going to feel pretty amazing.
Are you going to tell Huw you're sharing the estate with your brothers and sisters? It's not his business.
Nope.
Are you sure about this? What do you want, Joy? Do you want all of it? All I want is what we had before we came here.
[CAR PULLS UP.]
Melanie's going to drop you off at your mum's on the way back.
- Okay.
You can't miss any more school.
- Leave me alone.
Katie! Where's he going? The solicitor.
Huw's signing over the land to him.
Mum would be happy.
It's what she would have wanted.
Not according to her will.
At least be honest.
You got what you wanted.
- What are you doing? - I'm moving into Mabli's room.
- What? - Well, you're up and down in the night.
It's ruining my sleep.
Has she said something? You tell me! Sara.
Sara! Why don't you tell her about Davey boy, the next door neighbour? Shall I tell her about the time you smashed his head against our back wall? You need to go to the police, Katie! Nothing happened! Something did happen.
Dad is threatening to send me back to Cardiff, and if he finds out about this, it's a done deal.
Then go.
You're not safe here.
I love you.
I've work to do.
JOY: Gareth's exploiting Rhys.
- He knows he's vulnerable.
- I know! Look, my dilemma is we could all walk away from this with a lot of money.
What happened at the lake, Sara? When your father died? It was an accident.
Rhys has dreams.
Flashbacks.
He's trying to save him.
Dreams or memories? He says Huw is there.
Tea, Sara? - Mabli, what are you doing? - Making Owen a birthday cake.
- No, no, we're not, darling, no.
- But I promised him! Please? Mabli! This has got to stop! Now! You're letting him throw me out? What you did was terrible.
Mindless! You know how he treats me, how he makes me feel.
An animal is worth more than me.
And Dad? What about all the shit that he's done? You've been brainwashed.
Huw was at the lake, wasn't he? The day Dad died.
He goes fishing there every Sunday morning.
When we were kids, we used to go with him.
Do you have any idea what I have put myself through these past five years? Thinking my dad might have committed suicide because of something that I said that night.
You people have no reason to be here.
This belongs to us now, Lissie.
Rhys has given us all a share of the farm.
And I am not going anywhere until I find out what happened to my father.
You lied to the police for him.
Lissie knows Huw was at the lake that morning.
Do you understand what I'm saying? Huw could have - He could have murdered Dad! - Would you stop doing this! Leave it until the land's been officially transferred to us and even then just keep your mouth shut.
What do you want, Michael? [SHE GASPS.]
- Get off me! - Shh! Shh.
You talk too much.
Michael, don't [SHE BREATHES HEAVILY.]
[HE GRUNTS.]
[SHE SCREAMS.]
[SMOKE ALARM BEEPS.]
Get out of the way! What's happened? Your daughter almost set fire to the house! I was trying to make - the birthday cake.
- Oh, Mabs.
That child's behaviour has been appalling from the day we set foot in this place.
- Moira! - Oh, God forbid you might take my side! None of you seem to have the first clue about parenting.
Says the women with no bloody kids! - I'm sorry.
- No, it's fine, Mabs.
No harm done.
Let's get you cleaned up.
When things have calmed down, you need to apologise to her.
If it wasn't for me, Rhys would have kept the whole lot and you all would have nothing.
What are you talking about? I persuaded him, I convinced him.
Well, why ruin all your hard work? Apologise, Moira.
Hurry up, please.
An eight-year-old is desperate for the loo.
Oh, my God.
[CAR APPROACHES OUTSIDE.]
Get rid of the others.
There's nothing for them here.
[CAR DOOR OPENS.]
What happened at the lake? - You're not stupid, Joy.
- I want to hear you say it.
Huw killed Dad.
Why didn't you tell the police? You still could.
They wouldn't believe me.
- He'd tell them I did it.
- Why? Uh [HE SIGHS.]
Dad, Richard, never really wanted me.
He was an old man when I was born and I wasn't Owen.
He hated me.
And you hated him? Huw held his head under the water.
Huw held his head under the water and I didn't try to stop him.
We should have Joy and Rhys over for supper.
Maybe tomorrow? Maybe wait until the other lot have pushed off.
They're not leaving.
What? Rhys is dividing the estate between them.
No.
No, he damn well isn't.
Didn't he tell you? And Sara was asking questions about her father.
She knows I lied to the police.
- How? - Hm.
- [SHE GASPS.]
- How? NIA: Why don't you hate me? Is that what you want? [PHONE RINGS.]
There's no ID, just a number.
Was that the neighbour? David? Oh, you wanted this to happen.
Make Michael the bad guy so you could walk away.
I've got some stuff you can put on the bruising if you'd like? No, it's fine.
Thank you.
I know I'm pathetic.
Well, none of us are exactly saints in all this.
What are you going to do? Find somewhere safe for Mabli and me.
But before I go, I'm going to find out what happened to Dad.
Thanks.
Mum? You deserve a better son.
And you deserve a better husband.
I made my bed, Tom.
You're stronger than this, Mum.
I would be with you every step of the way.
You need to get away from him, get the life that you deserve.
[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH.]
[DOOR OPENS.]
Where is he? - Who? - Rhys.
Where is he? [BABY CRIES.]
Rhys! Rhys! [CRYING CONTINUES.]
- Oh, my God.
- Leave us.
- No.
- Joy, get out now.
The land is yours, boy.
A gift from your parents to you and only you.
- They'll hate me for it.
- They can't be around this place.
They can't have anything to do with it.
Whilst they're here, it's not safe.
Do you understand? What did Huw say? What does he want? He wants things his way.
- Did he threaten you? - He had a gun, Sara, what do you think? Rhys, is this about Dad? If you told us what happened at the lake, then we can help you, protect you from it.
I've already told you what fucking happened, why don't you tell me what you're all thinking? Huh? [PHONE DINGS.]
Idiot.
Shit.
It's Melanie.
She's half an hour away.
Right, this is a really big day.
Everyone has to behave.
I want you off this farm.
If you're not out of that caravan by the weekend, I'll get Josh to burn it down.
Tell him, Mum.
Tell him you're going to get a divorce.
Tell him you're going to tell the police who killed Uncle Richard.
Your mother isn't going to leave me or is she going to accuse me of anything.
Tell him, Mum.
You said you were going to tell him.
You're bloody pathetic! You deserve each other.
Get out! - [DOORS SLAM.]
- [SHE GASPS.]
Oh, my God! What the hell is wrong with you?! - You've taken him away from me! - Don't talk to me! Owen's run away because of you.
You know what, Mabli? You need to find some real friends, real people.
He hates you.
I hate him too.
I've arranged an on-site meeting with the key investors and two of them are flying down from Edinburgh next week.
We've got to get a move on with this.
If they sense there are legal obstacles, they'll all drop out.
Melanie's staying tonight if you could prepare a room.
Their lawyer's the problem.
He's well, overzealous.
That's what they pay us to be.
I don't take milk.
Any lemon? So if we look at the logistics Maybe I can move to Cardiff.
Get a job there.
That's not what you said yesterday.
I know.
But I've changed my mind.
But you love it here.
Don't you want me to move to Cardiff? Of course I do.
[MUSIC BOX PLAYS.]
Hello? Hello? [MUSIC STOPS.]
Cai.
Cai! - What have you done with Cai? - What? - Where is my son? - Joy, I thought you had him.
I don't know where he is.
Huw.
You.
What the hell are you doing? [MOIRA SCREAMS.]
Give me my son back! [RHYS PANTS.]
I haven't got your son.
This isn't about my grandchild.
Do what you want.
[RHYS SCREAMS.]
[GUNSHOT ECHOES.]
[BABY CRIES.]
- My baby! - I'm sorry, it was an accident.
- Rhys, Mabli made a mistake.
She - Huh? Rhys! Rhys! Rhys, stop! Stop.
[CAI CRIES.]
He was just playing.
What the hell is going on? You were supposed to be looking after her.
If you can't even do that then you're useless to me.
If she wasn't here, I'd make you pay for that.
I want you to go.
Now.
I want you to leave.
I'm going nowhere, Sara.
If I do go, Mabli will be coming with me.
Mabli.
All right, Mabs? I won't tell Huw till after I've been paid.
Maybe I won't even tell him at all.
And then I'll be on a train to Cardiff.
[SHE LAUGHS SOFTLY.]
I can't wait.
Hey! You! Get back to work! Now! And you, get off my land.
Bye.
Earn your keep.
Today, preferably.
TOM: Who's been a naughty boy, then? Oi.
- I'm talking to you.
- What do you want? You need to be taught some manners, farm hand.
Oh, we can't all be living the dream, can we? How's that caravan working out for you? Fuck Come on, then! Round two, farm hand.
Come on.
Come on.
Oh, fuck.
[SHE WHIMPERS.]
Mabli? Help me! [BANGING.]
[BANGING CONTINUES.]
- Hello? - Hello? Help! [BANGING.]
There's someone in there.
Had a bit of a tumble, Moira? [SARA GASPS.]
Mabli! Oh, I'm going to kill that bitch! - What the hell are you doing? - What are you playing at, you mad cow? RHYS: You all need to leave! All of you.
House is worth nothing without the land.
Joy and I are keeping all of the estate for ourselves so you need to go tomorrow.
- [SHE CRIES OUT.]
- Shh! Shh, shh.
Mum, please, I don't want you making a noise.
Do you understand? - [SHE SCREAMS.]
- Shh, shh, shh, shh.
KATIE: Josh knew I was leaving today.
I don't understand why he hasn't texted or called back.
You know what, Katie? I don't care.
Now, get in the car.
Listen, Mel, it's not a foregone conclusion.
I'm going to work on my brother.
Let's not kid ourselves, Gareth.
I've wasted enough time on this already.
What are you doing? A cab would have cost me £75.
Melanie has agreed to £10 petrol money.
You're leaving me? - What's this? - It's Owen's birthday today, so I made him a cake.
February 20th.
Mum? Mum! MABLI: Happy birthday to you ALL: Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to Owen Happy birthday to you Josh, where are you? Do you want this job or not? Joy We've told them to leave.
Good.
I want you to leave too.
But it's our chance to be a family.
It's never going to happen.
He's terrified of you.
- He's terrified of the truth.
- Not any more.
He's told me everything.
Has he? Come on, Joy, let's go.
- We've said what we needed to.
- No, no.
- What is the truth? - Joy.
Your mother and I perjured ourselves for you.
You could have stopped me.
You should have stopped me.
Rhys! [HUW GRUNTS.]
- [RHYS COUGHS.]
- Rhys! [RHYS PANTS.]
Bastard.
Argh! No! No, Rhys! No! [RHYS GRUNTS.]
[RHYS PANTS.]
Ugh! It was an accident, Rhys.
Dad hit his head, fell in, and drowned an accident.
Funny thing is, you just don't see it, is that you're just like him.
Leave.
I was trying to save him, Joy.
That's why I jumped in the lake.
Joy.
He hated me.
My whole life.
And he made sure I knew it.
I know.
Do you understand? Yeah.
I understand.
This thing is going up in flames! If you're inside, you'd better come out now.
It was always going to end like this.
- Tom, no! - It's okay.
You haven't got the guts.
Oh, my God.
Call an ambulance.
I'm not finished yet, Mum.
I've got one cartridge left.
Are you okay? Joy.
I think Cai needs you.
Did you kill Dad? - What did she say to you? - Nothing.
Did you murder my father? Time to leave.
- Go home.
- This is my home.
No, not any more.
Are you going to fight? Are you going to let him shaft us all? It's out of my hands.
I've jacked in my job.
We are behind on the mortgage.
I'm sorry, there's bugger all I can do.
Rhys changes his mind like that.
Last time was when Huw came at him with a gun.
What have we got to lose, huh? RHYS: You're up late.
So are you.
You want the land? The house? Have it all if it makes you happy.
But you, me, Sara, Gareth, we need each other whether we like it or not.
Why? Because having a fuck-up like me in the family makes you feel better about yourselves? Dev's got the flat.
I'm broke.
Ah I need this place.
I haven't got anywhere else to go.
I'm sorry.
If you're not out of here by tomorrow morning, I will throw you out.
Do you really want to go head-to-head with a woman who's got fuck all to lose? Tomorrow.
What are you doing? Someone was trying to get in the room.
- What? - I'm scared.
Scared for the baby.
I need to get out of here.
I won't let anything bad happen to you or the baby.
I'm not staying here.
Okay, I'm coming with you.
[WHISPERS.]
Rhys.
Cai's blanket's by the back door.
[CAI CRIES.]
You're not leaving me.
No, please.
Please.
Please, please.
You're not leaving me, and you're not taking my son.
Do you understand? - Tell me you understand.
- I understand.
Oh, my God.
[GUN COCKS.]
- Oh, my God.
- It's a bit Cain and Abel.
- Don't you think? - Wait, wait, Tom, stop.
[JOY SCREAMS.]
[CAI CRIES.]
[JOY SOBS.]
Mum.
The police are coming.
I did it all.
You need to go.
Go! [CAI WAILS.]
[CAI CONTINUES CRYING.]
