[rain pattering]
- [indistinct chatter]
- [upbeat music playing]
[Jacs] She has a boyfriend, okay?
- Will you fuck off.
- [Jacs] Don't worry.
[Kel] Fuck off.
[Jacs] Kel, I'm not going to tell him.
I'm not going to show him.

[Angus] Come here.
Are you going to tell me
what happened or what?
I just tripped. [chuckles]
It's not really newsworthy.
Classic damsel in distress story, really.
Yeah. I'm surprised
you're even up and functioning.
Figured you'd still have your head stuck
in the toilet.
[Jacs] Piss fit, baby!
Uh-huh. Don't bullshit me, Jacs.
[Jacs sighs]
I'm-- [chuckles] I'm worried about you.
No judgement?
I chased the guy from Kel's phone.
We were about to meet up and he sped off.
Wait a second. What?
I've been messaging him.
[Jacs chuckles]
Because I want to know what he did to her.
But you don't know anything
about this guy.
Jesus. I-- No, you need--
you need to stop.
- Why would I?
- Her privacy.
Going through her phone.
- I mean, what the fuck are you doing?
- As if that is the worst thing
either of us have done to Kel.
[Angus] Why? Why? Why are we talking
about that again? I--
Because we never talked about it.
Just say that you regret it.
Say that you regret it.
- Say that you regret sleeping with me.
- I don't.
I don't. I
Being with you
that weekend was just
I was so lit up. [chuckles]
I just
I don't know. You
You always made me feel that way.
[Jacs sighs]
[Jacs moans]

[Jacs moans]
[Angus kisses]
You okay?
- [Jacs] Yep.
- [Angus] Yeah?
[pants] Yes.
- [Jacs sighs]
- [Angus chuckles] Uh.
- [Jacs] What?
- No, no, no, no. It's okay. Sorry.
- It's just-- We don't need to go so fast.
- What?
[Angus chuckles]
What do you mean?
- [Angus] Well, it's just
- [Jacs groans]
Hey, hey, hey. What if we just
What if we just kiss for a bit?
Should I put my top back on?
- No. No. No, not at all.
- [Jacs chuckles]
- [Jacs moans]
- [Angus sighs]

[eerie music playing]
[Angus] Stop?
- Yeah.
- Sorry.
I'm sorry.
[sighs] Fuck.
Um, I don't know what's wrong with me.
That's okay. Yeah. We-- we can just stop.
It's all good.
- It's not you.
- [Angus] No, it's okay.
No, it's like-- Not-- It's--
- [Angus] Hey.
- [Jacs] You're so perfect.
I don't want to feel like this. I feel
- Is it Kel or
- [Jacs] No, it's-- it's him.
I, um
I promised Kel.
Okay? And
It felt important to respect that and
and do right by that, you know? So
[chuckles] Honestly, I didn't think
it was actually any of your business.
But, um
I, um
I know where he lives.
[car engine revving]
[birds chirping]
- [indistinct chatter]
- [dog barking]
[nursery rhyme playing faintly]
- [lock clattering]
- Hello.
- [nursery rhyme playing]
- [Coco] Mum, there's a lady here.
Can you go back to your homework, please?
- [Coco] No.
- [Fay] Ah, don't make me say it again.
- Homework. Now.
- [Coco sighs]
Hi, sorry. We just got in from school.
I'm here for the bike.
Your husband put it on marketplace.
Jim, there's a lady here
to pick up the bike.
[Jim] Huh?
[Fay] Hey, what bike are you selling?
You better not be buying a new one.
[Jim] What bike? What are you on about?
- [Fay] Um, which bike?
- Um, not inside, thank you.
It's, uh, it's just one
of the-- the kids' bikes.
The tyre's busted.
[Fay] Well, can we not just get
a new tyre?
- Yeah, no, the whole, um, wheel's ruined.
- Jesus.
Jim, that was the new bike from Christmas.
[Jim] It's fine.
Here, I'll show it to you.
It's just down the side.
Can you
[Coco] Mum, I want something to eat.
[Jim] Oh fuck.
You have a family.
What do you want then?
I want to know what you did.
And I don't fucking care
if I ruin this for you, okay?
Okay. What do-- what do you mean,
what I did?
We-- we had an affair.
You had an affair. Tell me what happened.
Okay. Okay.
We, um
we met at a pub, and
we kept in touch,
and it took off from there.
Why's she dead?
I-- She really didn't tell you anything?
Okay, she, um
She'd come down, and we'd
- we would book a motel.
- [indistinct chatter]
[Jim] And it-- it was an escape
for both of us.
I wanted to be there for her.
I mean-- I mean, Kel had this incredible,
um, wisdom.
A-- a sense of freedom.
It didn't make sense that she could end up
in such dark places.
And when I saw the cracks [sniffles]
I didn't want to abandon her. [sniffs]
I wanted to help her.
[sighs] Fuck.
- How were you going to fucking help her?
- [Jim] I don't know.
It had gone too far. [sniffles]
We'd gone-- We'd-- we'd got in too deep.
I mean, I
[sighs] I could see how much
it was affecting-- affecting her.
- I didn't want to string her along.
- What, more than you already did?
Look, she-- she knew
I was never going to leave my kids.
You know, I-- I called her up
and I cut it for good.
And that was the night.
[sniffles] And she went quiet.
[indistinct chatter]
[boy] Give me that back!
Why didn't she tell me about you?
[chuckles, sniffles]
she said that
you'd be vengeful and hateful,
and you wouldn't accept me,
which is completely fair enough.
I don't know. I don't know. She also
She knew that you'd cheated
with her boyfriend before,
but she loved you.
I, um
Just wanted to say that, uh
I saw your photograph.
And it was really beautiful.
[girl] Dad.
- [Jim] Hey.
- [girl] I want to show you my drawing.
- [Jim] Okay.
- [girl 2] I want to go first.
- [girl] No, I'm going first.
- [girl 2] I'm going first.
[sombre music playing]
- [Kel] What the fuck?
- [Jacs] I'm just an idiot.
[keys clattering]
[bag clattering]
Where have you been?
[Jacs sighs]
[sighs] Just with friends.
We've been trying
to get a hold of you for ages.
Okay, Mum?
Yeah. I'm tired. [chuckles]
I'm really tired. I'm like
[groans] I can't sleep.
I need an MRI. I can't
[Kathy] Well, you don't need an MRI.
But you do need
to see someone.
I don't want to be like this any more.
No, baby.
I watched the tape.
What tape?
Why didn't you tell me?
Tell you what?
- [Jacs sniffles]
- What happened over there.
Um [sobs]
I would have looked after you.
Talk to me.
[sniffles] I don't want to do this
with you.
I'm your mother.
I don't want to do this with you.
I don't want to do this with anyone. Okay?
Nothing happened.
You watch the tape
and tell me nothing happened.
- I will watch it with you.
- Oh, stop.
What he did was criminal.
I saw it with my own eyes.
Who are you lying to?
Me or
You don’t know what’s on there, do you?
[gasps, sighs]
[Kathy] Maybe we should take this
to the police.
No. [sniffles]
[sobs, sniffles]
[camera whirring]
[camera whirring, clattering]
[camera rustling]
[Raffa] Why do I have to go first?
[Jacs chuckling]
Well, that's my idea.
[Raffa chuckles]
You're prettier than you think.
[Jacs chuckling]
How do you know how pretty I think I am?
[Raffa chuckles]
Turned on your mate pretty quick tonight.
[Jacs chuckling]
So what spicy questions
have you got for me?
[Jacs] What's your weirdest fantasy?
Like a fetish?
[Jacs] No, it can be like anything.
Just, you know, do your worst.
[Raffa chuckles]
I think of my brother dying.
[Jacs] I think about being hit by a car.
Um, and then I go to the hospital
and I have to be there for ages
- and the doctor falls in love with me.
- [Raffa chuckles]
[Jacs] He's never met anyone
- like me before.
- Oh, it's a rescue fantasy.
[Jacs chuckles] Ew. Lame.
- What's yours called?
- [Raffa] I don't know.
- [Jacs] Well, how does your brother die?
- A house fire.
Where if I'd have been there
that second earlier,
- I could have saved him.
- [Jacs] Tragic.
[Jacs] So did you also douse it
in kerosene before?
It won't happen, by the way.
[Jacs] What?
- Doctor.
- [Jacs chuckling]
He's not going to fall in love with you.
[Jacs] Why?
[gulps] Because
[sighs, chuckles]
women like rescuing men,
not the other way around.
- [can clattering]
- And leave.
- [Jacs] Well, that's not very nice.
- I know.
That's sad.
It's just the way it is.
[Jacs sighs]
Acceptance is a small, quiet room.
[Jacs imitating boom] What are you, like,
doing, psychology or something?
I do teaching.
[Jacs] Hmm.
- [can clattering]
- You're too good for him, anyway.
- [Jacs] What?
- [camera rustling]
- My fantasy doctor.
- [Raffa] Hmm.
[Jacs] Yeah, true, he's a bit of a prick.
- Were you a dork at school?
- [Jacs] Yeah.
- You were?
- [Jacs] Yeah. Massive.
Um, what school are you going to teach at?
I'm doing placement at Shire High.
[Jacs] And why do you
want to be a teacher?
Because I think it'll be fulfilling.
[Jacs] What, the repetitive grind
and the shit pay?
- [Jacs chuckling]
- [Raffa chuckles]
[Raffa chuckles]
And you're going to be what, a millionaire
being a talentless photographer.
[Jacs] Um, you haven't seen my work.
No, your friend told me.
- [Jacs] She did not.
- Yeah, she said
you didn't have a fucking clue.
[Jacs] Fuck off, she didn't.
[Jacs laughing]
- You will be a good teacher but.
- Yeah, I know, I will.
- [camera rustling]
- [Raffa chuckling]
- [Jacs] Can I have some beer?
- [Raffa] Yeah.
[can clattering]
- [Jacs chuckling]
- [Raffa chuckling]
[Jacs chuckling]
[Jacs chuckles]
[Jacs chuckles]
- I might just go to the bathroom quickly.
- Yeah.
[Jacs chuckling]
[Jacs] I'm just going to turn this off.
[camera rustling]
[toilet flushing]
[door opens]
- [footsteps approaching
- [Raffa chuckles]
- Hello?
- [Jacs chuckling]
[Jacs chuckles]
[both kissing]
- [Jacs] I actually got my period.
- That's all right.
- No, like I've got like a tampon in. Stop.
- Do you?
- Yeah.
- I don't care.
- We could get breakfast.
- Yeah, in the morning we will.
- [Raffa chuckles]
- [Jacs chuckles]
I'm actually kind of feeling a bit sick.
Sorry. Let go.
[chuckles] What? Are you scared?
[indistinct clamour]
[Raffa] What's wrong?
[indistinct chatter]
[Raffa kissing]
Fuck is wrong with you?
- [Jacs] Just stop.
- [Raffa] Wait.
- It would be so good, you know.
- [Jacs] No.
- [Raffa] But you look so fucking good.
- [Jacs grunts] Just stop.
- Stop. Stop.
- [Raffa] Come on.
- [Raffa] Fuck.
- [Jacs] Stop.
[Jacs groans]
- [Jacs groans]
- [Raffa pants]
- Fuck.
- [Jacs shudders]
[Raffa] Oi.
- Oi.
- [Jacs crying]
[Raffa] Oh fuck.
[Jacs panting, crying]
[camera rustling]

[door closes]
