High Seas (2019) s01e04 Episode Script

Episode 4

1 A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES - [Carolina sighs.]
- If you scream, I'll put it back on.
We thought you were dead.
My sister saw you fall into the sea.
It wasn't me.
When you came across us at the harbor it wasn't a chance encounter.
You weren't fleeing from any husband.
You knew my father.
What were you looking for? Evidence to prove that your father was murdered.
What are you doing here? [man.]
The question is, what are you doing here? [grunting.]
[man screams.]
[Sofía.]
Luckily, my uncle saved me.
Shout when I tell you to.
- Now.
- [Sofía screams.]
[Eva.]
A woman fell into the water! [Carolina.]
What does he have to do with my father's death? [Sofía sighs.]
Before he died, your father asked me for a favor.
In case something happened to him, he asked me to deliver a document to the judicial authorities.
What document? A microfilm.
He hid it amongst your stuff.
It contains the evidence of his murder.
But who murdered him? Dr.
Rojas and your Uncle Pedro.
No.
I don't believe you.
My uncle adored my father.
He'd never do anything bad to him.
My father died in a car accident.
Why do you think I didn't tell you anything? Because I knew this would be your answer.
I must tell the first officer, he must know you're here.
If you tell anyone where I am, I won't be the only one at risk.
You two will, too.
Last night, they set your cabin on fire.
Your sister almost died.
Eva.
[sighs.]
Why did they want to kill him? What did my father discover for them to do something like that? I don't know, he didn't want to tell me.
It's something to do with the company.
His company? My father had a shoe company.
That's all.
All the answers are in that microfilm.
Your father trusted me.
I need you to help me find it.
It's the only way.
Just tell me one thing.
Is Fernando involved? I don't know.
Carolina.
Change of Destination No one can know I'm alive.
Not even your sister.
Keep the wound bandaged and try not to wet the bandage.
Come up to my office tomorrow, I'll change the bandage.
It's a big wound.
We don't want it infected.
Okay.
Thank you, doctor.
Hello.
I just wanted you to know that [clears throat.]
Eva.
I'm sure you've noticed that I [chuckles.]
I can't believe it.
Come on, Nicolás.
Eva, I just wanted you to know that I [clears throat.]
[knocking.]
- Good evening, ma'am.
How can I help you? - I'm looking for Nicolás.
Nicolás isn't here.
He isn't on duty tonight.
Oh, I thought maybe Sorry, ma'am, you can't be here.
Good night.
- Hello.
- Hello.
I just knocked on your cabin.
- Really? - Yes.
I was taking a walk.
[chuckles.]
Well, I also wanted to thank you for the notebook.
I didn't do it earlier.
Yes, I saw you got a bit nervous.
[scoffs.]
Me? Nervous? I never get nervous, much less because of you.
- Do you always have the last word? - Yes.
[chuckles.]
[ship creaking.]
Sorry.
I didn't mean to.
It wasn't you.
- No? - No.
It was the ship.
Those stars shouldn't be there.
What do you mean? That we turned around.
- What? - Don't tell anyone.
But that makes no sense.
Why would we turn around? [sighs.]
Tell me we haven't turned around, captain.
Two people died.
Yesterday a cabin was set on fire, and that almost killed another one.
We can't let the situation get out of hand.
I can understand that, but why did no one inform me? No one knows.
No one.
[Nicolás.]
The last weather forecast warned of a heavy storm, - we could sail straight into it.
- There's been something wrong with this ship from the beginning.
The sea holds mysteries we're still unable to understand.
Get out of the bridge, officer.
You aren't on duty tonight, you don't have to be here.
- Captain - I said, get out of the bridge, officer! Get out of the bridge immediately, for fuck's sake! It's a damn order! I told you to leave the bridge! Out of the bridge! Out! Out! Barricade the bridge.
Where were you? What? Where have you been? It's late.
I was with Fernando.
Setting the record straight.
And did you succeed? Yes.
What about you? Where have you been? On the deck.
Getting some fresh air.
- On your own? - Yes.
On my own.
Totally on my own.
Well, I don't like you going alone, Eva.
I don't feel safe.
Don't exaggerate.
I'm not going to spend the journey locked in the cabin, right? [shower running.]
[knocking on door.]
- [knocking on door.]
- Sebastián.
- No.
- They knocked on the door.
It must be Dimas with breakfast.
- Nothing better than breakfast in bed.
- What? No, no.
No, no, stay.
- What time is it? - Breakfast time? [door opens.]
[Dimas.]
Good morning! [Sebastián.]
Dimas! I hope you're well rested, sir.
I hope you had a great night, but it's already time to wake up.
[groans.]
- Dimas, please.
- [grunts.]
What? [Sebastián.]
Leave that, Dimas.
You'll tidy up later.
[Sebastián sniffing.]
I can smell coffee.
[Dimas.]
Yes, as always, sir.
[Sebastián.]
I'd rather have some tea, if you don't mind.
You always have black coffee.
Yes, Dimas, but sometimes, you need to improvise.
Please.
[Sebastián sighs.]
- One of my shoes is missing.
- Really? [Sebastián.]
Oh.
When will I see you? If my mother hears that I've spent the night here, probably never.
Your mother's jealous.
[door opens, then closes.]
Now that we've made up for lost time, we should do something for the passengers.
Organize a party, a dance, something to help lift their spirits.
- [Aníbal.]
I think it's a good idea.
- I can do that, if you want.
I'm sure you're the right person.
[Pedro.]
The important thing is that when we arrive in Brazil, people are left with a good impression.
Mm? What do you think, love? - Can you pass me the sugar? - Good.
I think it's a good idea.
I'm sure people will like it.
Of course.
- [Natalia.]
More coffee? - Please.
Excuse me, Mr.
Fernando, could we have a word? Of course, officer.
What's up? - You look tired.
- Well, sir I must inform you of something important.
Oh, no.
You can speak freely.
I'm with my family.
- We're returning to port.
- What? The captain ordered the turn, sir.
After what's happened, it's the best thing, but our current course leads us straight into the eye of a storm.
It's dangerous.
No one else knows.
[Aníbal.]
Has he lost his mind? - Nicolás, did you talk to him? - Yes.
I tried to persuade him, but I couldn't.
The captain is convinced we'll be able to dodge the storm, but I'm not so sure.
The captain is an experienced man.
We should trust him, right? [Fernando.]
We need to do something before it's too late.
- Do the passengers know anything? - No, but the crew does.
- I asked them to keep their mouths shut.
- Let's go, officer.
[Carolina.]
Well I I'm going to see my sister.
We're returning to port.
I hope your brother's able to sort this out.
As a partner of the shipping company, you could also do something.
Yes, I could do many things.
But there is one I won't do: Lose the money I invested.
And for that, we need to arrive in Brazil.
Don't touch me.
Don't worry, dear.
If I want to do something, I have other women.
[Clara gasping.]
[Aníbal.]
Locking yourself in your cabin? Leave me alone! Why do you insist on resisting? We could have so much fun together.
[ship creaking.]
Good evening.
Captain, please, let us in.
We need to talk to you.
Captain.
Let me open it.
I'm sorry, captain.
Let's solve this in the best possible way.
Let's stay on course and forget about this, or I'll have to resort to more aggressive tactics none of us wants.
How dare you be so condescending to me.
I'm the highest authority on the ship.
I give the orders.
As long as you're in your right mind.
But now, unfortunately, your attitude suggests the opposite.
I'm keeping the lives of 1,600 people of out harm's way.
Are you? By leading the ship into the eye of a storm? - Are you teaching me how to do my job? - No one is trying to teach you anything.
We just want to reason with you.
I'm tired of your reasoning.
Get out of here.
Get out! [Fernando.]
Stop the engines right now.
[man.]
Sorry, but we can't do what you're asking.
I told you to stop the engines right now! The captain is still at the helm of the bridge, isn't he? If he ordered us to turn around, we have to obey.
Stop the engines right now! It's an order! Maybe we should stop them until the situation is clarified? Shut up! There's nothing for me to clarify.
People paid a lot of money to go to Brazil.
- [man.]
We must obey the captain's orders.
- [Fernando.]
I can give you a bonus.
- It's not a question of money.
- What do you mean it isn't? Everything in life is a question of money! We are very clear on whom to obey.
These men follow a code and they're not going to break it.
- We should prep emergency protocols.
- How much time do we have left? - A bit more than three hours.
- Wait.
Take required measures, but I prefer passengers not to be informed.
But the longer we delay it, the more problems we'll have later.
Give me an hour.
Delicious port wine.
I liked it.
Get out of my office now.
Mm.
You're upset.
Must be the change of course.
Are you involved? Mm.
I want to be here in four days.
I marked it with an X there.
- That won't be possible.
The situation - No, no, no.
Make it possible.
Hm? I hate repeating myself.
I hate it.
I hate it.
[man.]
Sir.
The latest forecast.
The storm is moving faster than anticipated.
We're heading straight into it.
[Francisca.]
Stop reading, there's stuff to do.
Give this dress to Ms.
Eva later.
She'll want to wear it tonight.
Yes.
By the way, I've heard good things about that boy, - Mr.
Sebastián's butler.
- [thunder cracks.]
Dimas.
I saw you with him last night.
What do you mean? People like him are good for you.
People like you.
Because I can't aim for anything better? Look.
I have some leftovers from the dress the lady asked me to make for Almudena.
I can make you a dress.
And if that boy invites you Mother, I don't want a dress made out of leftovers.
You're never happy.
You complain whether you have the dress or not.
Really, can't you understand that I want to have something of my own? I don't want to spend my life sewing and ironing for others.
Even when one's writing a book and the other's getting married.
You know what? It's your loss.
I'm done here.
[knocking on door.]
- Hello.
- Mr.
Pedro.
What are you doing here? Do you need anything? [Pedro.]
No.
Uh, can we have a word? Sure.
- Good morning, Mr.
Pedro.
- Good morning.
- What's the matter? - The picture The picture Carolina took from you.
The girl who fell into the water is in that picture, next to my brother.
I know.
I assure you, I didn't recognize her when we brought her on board.
I already told Miss Carolina.
I took the picture because I thought it was a good memory.
It's better not to remember some things, Francisca.
And above all, there are things my nieces must never know about.
Don't forget that.
Not even for a second.
I'll take everything I know to my grave.
No, not everything, Francisca.
I hope you don't take your blueberry pie recipe.
[both chuckle.]
- Good morning, Francisca.
- Good morning, sir.
This is the book I told you about, Madame Bovary.
By a French author.
Is it about love? - Love? - Yes.
Because I only like love and luxury novels.
This one, apart from talking about love and luxury, tells the story of a nonconformist woman who fights against the prejudices of her time.
In fact, if you think about it, it is quite topical.
Good grief! What is the matter, Verónica? [Verónica sniffles.]
[Dimas.]
It's because of Sebastián? Have you seen him with someone else? He was telling her the same things he used to tell me.
I thought he really liked me.
He probably likes you, but that's how he is.
Don't ask him to commit to anyone.
And he's committing to your business? Well, that's different.
If there's something my boss likes more than women, that's money.
And he can get rich with my business, actually.
Richer.
Dimas, you're as naïve as me.
Verónica.
[Pedro.]
If we return to Spain and the police start investigating, they'll end up finding everything out.
[Rojas.]
If we're lucky, the ship will sink before.
It's a bit too early to talk nonsense, don't you think? Varela! Take a chair and give us the honor of sitting at our table.
Hm? I feel safe.
The ship's doctor and its police officer.
[chuckles.]
Detective.
Thanks for your invitation, but I just came to see the doctor.
[Rojas.]
Mm-hm.
[Varela.]
It's about your assistant.
Have you heard anything new? I imagine he must have decided to quit his job.
Without warning.
Even if he isn't working for you anymore, he must be somewhere.
We're looking for him on the ship, but can't find him.
[Pedro.]
The ship's huge, Varela.
He must have taken a couple of bottles and shacked up with a girl somewhere.
Don't you think it's a bit strange that he disappeared? I mean, that he left voluntarily on the night when a woman was murdered? What are you insinuating? To make such an accusation, you need evidence and you don't have any.
- Do you? - No, no, no.
I don't.
[Pedro.]
The fact that we don't know where he is doesn't mean that he's disappeared.
I bet he'll show his face again before we arrive in Brazil.
Trust me, Varela.
Don't worry.
I get paid to worry.
If you hear something, let me know.
Of course.
Your calm fascinates me, as always.
Very funny.
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
[Pedro.]
My nieces have already moved into the new cabin.
[Rojas.]
Do you know if they took their father's stuff? Don't worry about that now.
Why? Because I know where he hid it.
My niece Eva carries it on her.
Deep down, my brother was a sentimental man.
- [Rojas.]
And when do you plan to take it? - In due course.
Trust me.
Hm? Come on, hurry up.
Is something wrong? No, no, nothing.
Let's go.
[door closes.]
[Pedro.]
How is my favorite niece doing? - Uncle, have a seat, please.
- Mm.
I'm pleased to see you've recovered.
I was quite alarmed yesterday.
I know.
I dread to think of it.
No, you shouldn't.
Bad memories out.
Out.
I know I'll never replace your father, but Uncle Pedro is here for anything you might need.
You both, I mean.
Hm? [Pedro moans.]
[grunts.]
Oh, something got caught.
Hold on, I'll Oh, how can I be so damn clumsy? [Eva.]
Don't worry.
How could I not worry? It's a present from your father.
I'll have it fixed after we reach port.
No, no, no.
No way.
There's a jewelry shop on board.
I'll take it there.
- Are you sure? - Of course I am.
Thank you so much.
It was my father's last present and it means a lot to me.
That's why I'll hurry them, - so that they fix it as soon as possible.
- Thank you.
[Pedro.]
Hm.
Eva? Eva! Eva! Eva.
Eva, I've been looking for you for an hour.
- Me, too.
I wanted to talk to you.
- Where is your pendant? The jewelry shop.
The chain broke, so Uncle Pedro took it.
- Uncle Pedro.
- Why? - Just asking.
- Sure.
Lately, whenever I ask you something, I feel like you're lying.
How silly! When have I ever lied to you? - Did you know we're going back? - Yes.
- If I don't tell you, you don't tell me.
- When, Eva, when? [thunder cracks.]
Sorry.
We're so nervous about it all.
I'm sorry I was rude to you.
The worse thing that could happen is if we're separated.
The captain's right, the best thing to do is to return to Spain.
- The best thing? - Yes, there's a murderer on the loose.
I want to know what happened.
When we get to Brazil, the police Don't tell me.
Fernando would lose lots of money.
It's not just Fernando.
Did you know we're headed straight into a storm that could sink the ship? If you don't believe me, ask Nicolás.
He thinks the same thing as me.
Where are you going? What do you care? You wouldn't believe me anyway.
[man.]
Here it is.
Goodbye.
- It's Eva's, it got hooked into - I know.
Eva told me.
I can give it to her.
See you later, Uncle.
I hope we are on the right course by then.
Yes.
I hope so.
[thunder cracks.]
Check the lifeboats' ropes, grab the deck chairs and any other objects that could fly off.
And get the life vests ready.
Come on! Come on! Come on! Sir.
Sir! [captain.]
In all these years as captain, I have faced many storms.
I'm more afraid of what's happening on this ship.
Stay on course.
[singing.]
I perceive the blinking Of the lights that far away Show me my way back They're the same that illuminated With their pale reflection Long hours of pain And even if I didn't want to go back You always go back to the first love [thunder cracking.]
[Natalia snickers.]
Are you scared of thunderclaps or what? Come on, drink this.
The only thing that would calm me is throwing the captain overboard.
You would need to take his gun first.
Oh, so you don't know? Yes, he locked himself on the bridge with a gun.
What? You're not so eager to throw him overboard now, right? What's wrong, Fernando? Are you letting the captain have his way? Do you know what going back to Spain means? - Aren't you going to do something? - [Fernando.]
What do you want me to do? [Aníbal.]
What will you tell the passengers? To hold on to something.
And to pray.
I gave him the whole day, but there is no doubt I have to take charge of it.
Aníbal, what are you going to do? You'll end up making things worse.
It's impossible to make things worse.
Believe me.
[Nicolás.]
Ladies and gentlemen, please, go to your cabins.
The storm is worsening and it could be dangerous.
You'll be safe in your cabins.
- Please, go to your cabin.
- Excuse me? Oh, officer.
As soon as I finish my drink.
Believe me, there are things in my cabin that scare me more than a storm.
[thunder cracks.]
Officer! [Nicolás.]
Leave them there.
Hung well.
Check the corridors and make sure everyone's in their cabins.
- What? - I just saw Mr.
Aníbal in the corridor.
He had a gun.
He had a gun? He left his cabin and I saw him put it in his pocket.
Shit.
[thunder cracking.]
Don't worry.
I'll say I forced you.
[Carolina.]
It must be here.
We'll find it, don't worry.
[panting.]
[gun cocks.]
[gunshots.]
