Desperate Lies (2024) s01e12 Episode Script

Episode 12

I didn't like it very much.
Ana, but you are very demanding.
He just arrived.
Honey, just a second.
This is important, okay?
No, I sent it to you.
I did.
That's it. Great.
The first part is great.
But the second part,
when we compare authors,
that's where we have a problem.
Yeah, because it's weak.
If we make a comparison,
putting the two together, then we have a
No, but Yeah, but it's weak.
No, of course.
There is a similarity between them,
that's the strength of our work.
But when we write
about it in the second part
-Ana! Honey!
Oh my God. What happened?
Honey. Everything is okay, alright?
Daddy is here with you.
Daddy won't leave your side, okay?
You're with Daddy.
Daddy will be right back. Just a second.
I'm gonna talk to the doctor.
Your daughter tore her flexor tendons
and her median nerve.
It's a delicate surgery.
We'll suture everything
that's been ruptured.
But it's a critical injury.
This may have affected the movements
and sensitivity of her hand.
The priority now is to focus
on recovery following the surgery.
Have I changed that much?
-I didn't know.
-I aged.
I lost some weight, but
I'm alive.
I'm free.
Aren't you happy?
I'm happy.
Why didn't you say anything?
You didn't reply to my letters. Why?
I wanted to surprise you.
The boys The boys just left.
I'm gonna call them.
They'll be happy to see you.
Let's talk first.
I've missed you.
I thought a lot about you the whole time.
Just the two of us
like this.
You're beautiful.
Tomás, wait.
-Tomás, wait.
-Come here.
-Come here.
You said you wanted to talk.
Hold on.
Come here.
Tomás, no.
Tomás, wait.
Come here.
Tomás, wait. Listen to me.
You said we were going to talk.
-What Stop.
-Come here.
Come here.
I said no!
Why not?
You're my wife, aren't you?
Because I'm confused.
Because you stopped talking to me.
You didn't let me visit you,
you abandoned me.
You hardly wrote to me.
You didn't reply to my letters.
Because I was in hell!
-Did you forget what happened?
No, I thought about it every day.
I assure I had more time to think
about it than you did.
You didn't let your children see you.
Me, your sister, no one.
You chose to be alone.
You wrote letters talking about the Bible,
talking about strange things.
It's like you were accusing me.
I've changed.
I had to change.
It was the only way.
But I'm here now.
I'm here. I'm gonna fix my life.
And I found a way.
What do you want to do?
Are you going back to the firm?
Who would want to hire a lawyer
with a criminal record?
But I'll get back on my feet.
I will triumph with my own story.
What are you talking about?
On this path I chose, Liana,
there's only one power.
Do you know what that is?
You don't know.
All you know are lies.
Your entire life, Liana, is a web of lies,
that involves everyone, that involves you,
that involves your children,
that involves my sister.
But not me.
Not me,
because I've already paid for all my sins.
All the sins I committed because of you.
-Because of me?
-Because of you.
Your pride,
your selfishness,
drove me insane.
How did it all start?
Who was the first to commit a sin?
I was unreasonable, I destroyed my life.
But you're the one responsible
for my troubles.
I didn't do anything alone, Tomás.
Everything we did,
we chose to do it together.
You chose to stay.
We chose our family.
Let me tell you where I found peace.
In the truth.
The truth sets you free.
It's the truth that will set me free.
My mother taught me.
What's up, Marcos? What are you up to?
What are you doing?
I don't know, I think I'm going home.
I'll go with you.
-No, stay.
-I have to go too, guys.
I have to study.
Look, you better watch out, because I'll
kick your ass tomorrow at the workshop.
Just letting you know.
I'm practicing too, okay?
-I've been practicing.
-Can you believe that?
I've been practicing.
Okay, then.
You'll see. I'm good.
-Do you want this?
-Bye. Kisses.
-Hey, Marcos!
-Bye, Mateus.
-See you at the Slam.
When I was in prison, I had two choices,
I could either defy my fate
or recognize
that I was chosen.
I accepted the calling.
Everyone deserves the truth.
I'll reveal the extraordinary events
that happened in my life.
What are you gonna reveal?
-Tell me.
You are my blessing and my curse.
You are my punishment,
you are my sin, you are my ordeal.
Do you know what I'm talking about?
Heteropaternal superfecundation?
Right, Liana.
-What happened was a sign.
-Oh my God.
Liana, it was a sign from God.
It was He who took me out of darkness
and showed me the light.
It was He who showed me the only path,
the only way out.
Today, I can turn my hell into glory.
This curse that tormented me,
that made me take someone's life
will be the grace that guides me
towards a virtuous path to glory.
Stop talking like that!
-What? Have you gone mad?
-Are you crazy?
No, Liana.
I opened up my heart to what is right.
Now my life will start over.
Start over how?
Why bring up the past?
You'll make your family suffer,
your children, me.
It was me!
I suffered more than any of you.
I was the one who suffered!
And now you will have your punishment.
The voice of blood will speak, Liana.
I'm gonna get closer to Mateus
without having to lie.
You can get closer to Mateus,
but Marcos
Marcos will finally know
where he came from.
He doesn't deserve that. He loves you.
Don't do that.
-He's crazy about you.
-He waited for you all this time.
-He suffered the most when you were gone.
He missed you more than Mateus.
-Liana, everything that happened
-You know that.
Everything, even what's hidden
-either good or bad.
will be judged.
And our biggest mistake
was lying.
Don't do that.
Don't do that. I'm begging you.
I'm begging you. I'm asking you.
Marcos is crazy about you.
Mateus They love each other.
They adore each other.
Mateus won't accept you.
He'll reject you. He'll hate you.
We will be judged.
Everyone will be judged!
Listen to Marcos.
Leave Marcos and Mateus out of this.
That's all I ask.
You were released?
Mom, why didn't you say anything?
Your dad wanted to surprise you.
Son, come here. Give your dad a hug.
Mateus, wait.
What are you doing, man?
Marcos, wake up, man.
He never cared about us. Now he shows up
out of nowhere without telling us.
What are you saying?
You don't think it's weird?
He was in jail, dude.
Dad, I missed you.
Why were you fighting?
-Let's talk inside.
-Hey, boy.
I'm happy to see you.
Come here.
Come give me a hug.
I'm back, son.
Your dad is here.
I think you'll like living here, Dad,
in the mountains.
You're probably tired, no?
Don't you want to lie down, rest a little?
I'm not staying.
You're not staying?
Where are you going?
I need to get my life together.
I want to follow a stable path.
With no lies.
What lies?
Son, we need to have a serious talk
about everything that happened.
Dad we really missed you.
-Liana, I understand.
There's no need to be upset.
I won't make another mistake.
Well, I'm gonna go.
My parents are waiting for me.
I always wanted the best for you.
Stay safe.
Bye, son.
Dad, wait. Let's take this opportunity
and take a picture.
Huh? A family picture.
How about that?
Come here.
-I'll walk you out.
Bye, Dad.
Marcos It was special for him.
I'm glad you didn't ruin it.
What about Mateus?
It wasn't special for him?
It wasn't, right?
-Did you see how he welcomed me?
-What did you want?
You come back
after all this time, cold, distant.
They don't recognize you.
And neither do I.
This whole time,
I thought we could have our lives back.
I was loyal to our agreement.
It must've been hard for you, right?
Yeah, I believed it.
I thought we could have our lives back.
Start over, leave the past behind.
Have our family back.
Yes, I had hope.
Our family doesn't exist.
It never did. It's a lie.
That's not true.
You have two sons who love you.
They love you in different ways.
Inside this house,
there are two boys who love you.
-Very much.
-I love them too.
I love them both.
Love is a positive feeling, Liana.
I don't wish harm on anyone.
I just want what's mine.
I want my son.
Tomás, he won't be able to handle it.
Everyone deserves the truth.
But I can wait.
Everything has its own time.
I sent you the picture.
I can't believe he's back.
I know. He took us by surprise.
Surprise or shock, Mom?
It doesn't matter, Mateus.
What matters is that he's back.
Yeah, he just doesn't live here anymore.
Listen, your dad needs
to get his head straight.
He's confused.
But he wants the best for you.
I don't even recognize his face anymore.
He looks so different.
He looks like you.
He changed a lot.
Do you think they still like each other?
I think so.
They were apart for a long time.
He said he always wanted the best for us.
What did he mean by that?
I don't know.
That he tried to protect us.
What about "the lies"?
What do you think they are?
How would I know, Mateus?
Does it have to do with Oscar's death?
We don't know exactly what happened.
-We never knew. It could've been
-Enough, Mateus.
Enough, man.
Our dad is back.
Aren't you happy?
I am.
So, how was it at your house?
Seeing Mateus and Marcos?
Mom, my house is here.
That's right.
You and Liana will have plenty of time
to figure things out.
Let her chase you. What?
-What, Jonas?
You agree with me.
I'm just saying something
that's been bottled for years.
-Surprise, honey.
Are you thinking of getting a divorce?
Is that why you didn't stay home
with Liana and your sons?
I only have one son.
Why do you look so shocked? You know that.
You were Liana's accomplice.
I respected what you both wanted.
But I
I've changed.
My two children here with me.
Oh, Tomás. I really missed you, son.
And your brother
has a lot of plans, Sílvia.
I know, Dad. I'm here trying
to understand these plans.
Tomás doesn't wanna return to the firm.
I told him to stay on the sidelines,
follow the cases, but he has another plan.
Pursuing a political career.
-Political career?
-Do you get it now?
He'll begin by advising
a congressman friend of mine.
And then,
when his criminal record is clean again,
he'll announce his own candidacy.
Your brother was a leader
in prison, honey.
This is a very important political asset.
That's your plan?
And to live under the law of truth.
Bye. Thank you.
Hey! I haven't seen you
in such a long time.
-It's been a while. I like your new look.
India is a magical place,
I wish I could stay there forever.
I only came back
because Dad asked me to help you here.
-You? Here?
Wow, welcome. Make yourself at home.
You know I take care
of everything for you, right?
Nelson, cut it out, I know you
earn a lot of money to work here.
Yeah, I do what I can.
I've missed you.
I'm always missing something.
Excuse me.
How are you? I missed you.
How are you?
Now I'm fine.
I felt awful.
I disappeared, right?
You did.
And this place seemed empty. I left too.
Then come back.
You know my brother loved you, right?
He used to say,
"Eudora is the charm of the 5X5 Bar."
I agree with him.
Come work for me.
Hey, Ed, bring me a cold one.
I have to talk to this woman.
We're here.
We're here, honey.
-You'll love the apartment.
It's sunny in the morning,
it's close to your mom's.
Is that good?
Hi, Jorge. This is Inácio.
-Hi. Nice to meet you.
-Hi, Inácio.
-Come on in.
-Make yourselves at home.
-Excuse me.
Excuse me.
This is Francisco, owner of the apartment.
-Hi, Francisco. How are you?
-How are you?
-How are you?
The apartment is beautiful.
Much nicer than in the pictures.
The floor is new, right?
The varnish seems fresh.
The tenant put it in last week.
Is the smell still strong?
No, it's great. Everything is great.
Inácio, I think here could be your studio.
So? What do you think?
Let's do it? Let's sign the contract?
Five months in advance?
You didn't say you needed
a deposit upfront.
That's normal. I just want to make sure
you'll be able to pay the rent.
And why do you think
we won't be able to pay the rent?
You're too young
and only you have proof of income.
And your income is essentially the rent.
But I work.
Do you get an allowance
or live off an income?
No, look. I get it now, okay?
You don't wanna rent to us
because you don't think
he can pay the bills.
Relax. We can come to an agreement.
Sorry, I need to have collateral.
I have rights.
Calm down, Bia.
Calm down.
Sir, what's your name?
Francisco, I've been working
since I was 20 years old.
I always made money working with music.
I'm an artist.
I'm a freelancer.
I'm doing very well, thank you.
I can't see,
but my condition
doesn't limit me in any way.
But you, Francisco, you have limitations,
and that's your shitty bigotry,
that just made you, Francisco,
lose two great tenants.
You can be certain of that.
Let's go.
I want to draw, you know?
But this thing gets in the way.
Do you think the orthosis gets in the way?
It's common to resist things
that are unfamiliar,
but this will help you.
Your injury makes your hand like that.
With this movement.
And you can't make this movement.
The orthosis will position your hand here,
then you'll be able to work
these muscles better.
I promise you'll get used to it.
Come on.
Put your finger here. That's right.
It has to be comfortable, okay?
It can't be too loose or too tight.
Just enough so you can feel the support.
-There's something else that can help.
This is something to use
with smaller tools,
like pencils, and fit them in.
And you'll find it easier to hold
and handle them.
So, come on. Give it a try.
Can you hold it?
I can hold it better than before.
So, try it.
-You've already made a perfect circle.
-It's not perfect.
It's perfect.
What a beautiful drawing, honey.
You found it beautiful, Dad?
It looks horrible.
-Can't you see?
-It doesn't.
I found it beautiful too.
It's how you draw.
You're learning a new way now.
It's your unique style.
That's the most beautiful thing ever.
-Want to take it home?
Oh, thank you, Liana.
Here. Don't forget to use this, okay?
Go on. Get everything ready so we can go.
Well, you
You've been changing our lives.
It's the children who change my life.
Every day.
I don't know
how my life would be without them.
I'm sorry.
I don't mean to bother you,
but are you okay?
Tomás was released.
He showed up yesterday unannounced.
He's here?
No, he left.
And I think there's no going back.
Now I have to see what's gonna happen.
Look, I think I'm your friend,
so if you need anything, anything at all,
you can call me, really.
I want
to repay you for everything
you've done for my daughter.
And for me.
It's great to hear that.
-Thank you.
-No worries.
What's up, boys?
Ana, let's go?
Bye, Liana. See you next time.
-Bye, honey.
-Bye, Liana.
Why were you and Dante hugging?
It was weird.
He was thanking me
because his daughter is drawing again.
He was emotional and so was I. Why?
What if Dad saw that?
Your dad isn't here.
Why didn't he want to stay?
Because of Dante?
That has nothing to do with Dante, Mateus.
What you saw
was friends showing affection.
That's it.
What about Dad?
Why weren't you affectionate to him too?
If you wanted, you would've insisted,
and he would've stayed.
I won't be held responsible
for other people's decisions.
I don't know what your dad wants.
I don't know why he didn't stay.
The murderer was released!
Why didn't you say anything?
Tomás has good lawyers. You know Jonas.
I also have good lawyers!
I'm gonna file a lawsuit.
This is unacceptable!
-This is fucking unacceptable.
-Okay, Dad. Call the lawyer.
File a lawsuit.
But calm down.
I'm not gonna have a heart attack, Débora!
He has to pay.
That bastard killed my son.
My son!
Where did he go?
Your dad went out with grandpa.
They'll take long.
They'll only be back at night.
-You want some juice?
-No. Thank you, Grandma.
Does your mom know you're in Rio?
No. We want to talk to Dad, just him.
We wanna know why
he doesn't want to stay with us.
Because he'd rather stay here with me.
After everything that happened.
Because he might need
some time to readjust.
Your mom didn't say
why he doesn't want to stay there?
-What, honey?
Grandma, I know you want him here,
but we want to be with him too.
Oh, so why don't you come live with me?
-There's enough room for everybody.
Honey, I'm taking care of my son,
that's it.
Grandma things are strange.
Dad came back, fought with my mom.
He said he's tired of lies.
-What lies?
-Does it have to do with Oscar's death?
Enough. Well
This is something
you have to talk to your parents about.
Why did Dad kill Oscar?
Mom said he was a criminal.
Okay, we know that, but then what?
Dad fought with him, they had an argument,
and he lost it.
He lost it, right?
That's what your mom said,
that he lost it.
-Mom, be quiet.
-Oh, sure.
-Be quiet, Mom.
-He lost it. Did she say why?
You wanna know the truth?
I'll tell you the truth.
-You don't know.
-Yes, I do.
-You don't know.
-Yes, I do!
I won't be quiet, honey.
Liana is responsible
for everything that happened.
Your mom was Oscar's lover.
-That's not true.
-Your dad saw them together.
He killed your mother's lover.
That's what happened.
-Mom, come on!
What? Whose side are you on?
-The truth's.
-Oh, stop that.
Your grandma, she's crazy.
She has no idea what she's talking about.
go home, talk to Liana.
She had a lot of time to talk to us.
She never said anything.
I want to talk to my dad.
Your dad isn't here right now.
And if your mom never said anything,
it's because she had her reasons.
Life was not easy for Liana.
She suffered a lot.
Do you hear me?
Your mother suffered a lot,
but you grew up.
You're already able to understand.
Please go home and talk to your mother.
Let's go.
Wait, Marcos.
Let's go.
Marcos, wait up.
Wait, dude.
-Oh, congressman.
-How are you?
-How are you?
I'm going to include
your son in my cabinet.
We're going to draw up several projects
for our ex-convict brothers.
It's amazing how no one thinks
about these people.
I knew it.
I knew you would get along, Diógenes.
Tomás is a good man.
He faced major consequences
for protecting his family.
Thank you, Dad.
Thank you, congressman,
for the invitation.
Thank you to the entire party.
I promise to work hard
for your re-election.
You can count on me.
And, in the future,
after I've cleared
all my debts to society,
I also intend to run for election.
I made a lot of mistakes.
But in this country,
where impunity prevails,
I know I represent real change.
And my mission,
until my last days,
will be to bring the believers
to our side.
The good side.
I'll have the support
of the person who helped
understand this new path the most.
She's my friend,
and she is a follower
of this journey of transformation.
Cláudia Aguilar. Thank you.
Your time has come, Tomás.
I waited
more than six years
for this day.
But everything I have to say here,
I can sum up in one word
It's the truth,
above all else
that will set us free.
What? Is Olinda crazy? Has she gone mad?
She has no right.
How can she do this?
She knows nothing about my life.
She doesn't know what happened,
nothing about Oscar.
I know, Liana.
Me too. I was shocked.
Mom had some kind of psychotic break
because of her little boy, you know?
But what disgusts me the most is Tomás.
He's different. He's a different person.
The boys lied to me.
They didn't go to school.
You need to talk to your kids.
A serious talk, just you and the boys,
and tell them the truth.
Thank God they didn't see Tomás there.
Tomás hinted
that he won't say anything for now.
You can't trust what Tomás says.
Okay, Silvia. We'll talk later. Bye.
Someone nervous here?
You'll kill it. You always do.
In the age of likes
There's a lot of superficiality
Offline you follow me
You don't know what it's like
To be in my shoes
I'm afraid to give myself away
Of getting involved
And seeing the person choosing to leave
What? You're going to pretend
Nothing happened between us?
"No, princess. It's not like that"
For you, it's Your Royal Highness
I realize
I don't deserve to beg for affection
Let's talk straight
Now I want something concrete
I want to hold hands in the street
Public display of affection
You wanted me not to see myself
But now I really do
And I look in the mirror
With the self-esteem I deserve
I want myself completely
And nothing more
I'm no longer deceived
Come on, dude!
Júlia sent me ten messages.
I completely forgot
about the Slam workshop.
Come on, dude.
-Hi, Mateus.
-Júlia, let me explain.
If you didn't want to do the workshop,
why did you sign up?
Something weird happened.
I have to tell you in person.
It can't be over the phone.
It has to be in person.
Please, let's talk.
Okay. Do you want to come over?
I'm making lunch.
Cool. I'll see you in a bit.
Let's go have lunch at Júlia's.
-No. No way, Mateus.
-Come on, Marcos. Let's go.
-No, I want to go home.
-Marcos, come on, dude.
She's really mad at me.
Then we can talk
to Mom together, you know?
It's better.
It's in the newspaper
that my father was released.
Arrested for murder.
Why are you reading this, man?
We never knew why they fought,
now we know.
took her lover home.
And that gave him the right
to kill someone?
You're always defending Dad.
You're being very sexist, Marcos.
-Really, don't get involved.
-Take it easy, man.
You know what? I'm going home.
-I shouldn't have come here.
Dude, just stay.
I won't say anything, okay?
Marcos, wait up.
Look who's calling. It's Mom.
Let me talk to her. Give it to me.
-Hi, guys.
-You have friends over? That's great.
-What's up, Mom? You're home early.
-How are you?
What's up, Mr. Sérgio?
-Guys, Betina, Sérgio, my parents.
-How are you?
-Nice to meet you. Mateus.
-They are twins, Mom.
-Oh, twins, huh?
Marcos and Mateus?
Are you Liana's sons?
Yes, why?
Wow, you look so handsome.
Look, I know I'm handsome,
but your son-in-law is Mateus.
Come on, dude!
What a small world.
-You know our mom?
-Of course.
Yes. We got close when she was pregnant,
but then we drifted apart.
Yeah, she does that to people.
She drives them away, destroys everything.
Come on, dude.
That's how she broke up our family.
No, don't say that.
Liana did everything
to keep you two together.
You're probably not talking about Mom.
You're talking about someone else.
The truth sets you free.
Our mom had a lover.
-But our dad killed him.
-Shut up, dude!
-Why are you saying that?
-You shut up.
I'm saying that
because she's complimenting Mom.
-Guys, relax.
-Hold on.
She doesn't know Dad
was arrested because of her.
-Hey, calm down.
Calm down.
Look, I don't know
what happened between your parents,
but Tomás is a very cold person.
He's a complicated man.
My dad?
What do you know about him?
Liana did everything
against her husband's wishes.
She came here to the house.
And you were newborns.
Mom, hold on.
Mom, is Liana that woman
you told me about?
Is that what's happening?
-What woman?
-Nothing, Mateus.
-I don't know anything.
-You just said it. What woman?
Is that it?
Is that it? They have to know, Mom.
-If it is, they have to know.
Your father wanted to keep
just one of the babies.
And he brought you, Marcos,
for us to adopt.
But Liana, she came here with Mateus.
She came to get you.
I called you guys, I texted,
but you never replied.
You lied to me, you ran away. Why?
How come you never told me?
What your grandma told you,
I don't know what she said, but
She was being malicious.
Your grandma knows nothing about my life.
No! Why did you give
Marcos up for adoption?
Huh? Why?
