That Burning Car

[thunder rumbling]
[thunder crashes]
- [slashes]
- [Marcos grunts]
[thunder crashes, rumbles]
You have no idea
[Marcos gasps, groans]
what a mother's capable
of doing for her child.
- ["Come Wander with Me" playing]
- He said come wander ♪
With me, love ♪
Come wander with me ♪
- [Santi] The Three Wise Men came!
- [laughing]
All right, come on, let's see if we can
- Eduardo, this is yours.
- Yeah.
- Good one.
- Aww! This gift is huge!
Are you serious?
[Mariana] Oh!
- [laughing]
- Do you like it?
- I can't wait to play with it! Whoo!
- [laughing]
- [Julia] The guy said it was the best one.
- [Mariana laughs]
Oh! That's me. Hi, there.
[Gloria] So what will a mother do
for her children? Anything.
And can love only me ♪
[thunder crashes]
[slow-tempo music playing]
[glass scraping]
[Gloria gasps, sniffles]
- What are you doing here?
- Where were you? I was worried, Mom.
The only thing I'd worry about
is us getting out of here quickly.
Because if Natalia really knows,
then we can't waste a single second.
They said two days.
Then the last passport'll be finished.
Two days.
You'll see. Soon we'll all be in Canada.
And we'll look back and think,
"This was someone else's life."
And where will we go?
'Cause Canada's huge, Mom.
Well, but that's better.
- Easier to disappear.
- You need to talk to Aitana.
She won't want to leave like this.
I know.
You speak to her.
She'll listen to what you say.
So were you the kid
at the, uh, gas station?
You told me how you felt about Germán.
But not how you met each other.
I was skateboarding one night,
and we bumped into each other.
- On the street.
- Hmm. Well, then.
Watch Hugo.
And I don't want you
to see Germán again before we leave.
Mom, look.
You don't love me anymore 'cause I lied?
Oh, honey.
I love my children equally.
You think cutting off one
of a mother's [groans]
fingers hurts more
than cutting off another?
Oh, don't be silly!
[Hugo crying]
[Abel imitating teething]
[laughs] What are you doing, sweetheart?
Why are you still dressed in that?
No school today.
You feel
under the weather as well, Lorenzo.
- [knock on door]
- [Alicia] Blanca. It's Alicia.
- [Blanca] Come in, it's open.
- [door opens]
Oh, thank you. You didn't have to.
Blanca, this is absurd.
I don't know what happened between us.
I just wanna go back
to the way things were.
And I want world peace
and to live in a luxury resort.
But you can't have everything.
Look, no one is perfect.
You have to get past the bad patches
and go on.
Don't you ever refer
to my life as just a bad patch again.
You know, honestly,
I only came for Lorenzo.
He never misses class.
Lorenzo has a fever.
I guess I forgot to call the school.
You know I'm his teacher.
Well, I'm letting you know now. Hmm?
The adoption
didn't go through after all. [sighs]
I'm sorry. Things happen for a reason.
- It's tough for Pedro.
- And for you.
[Alicia exhales]
[door closes]
[Caterina humming]
[Germán panting]
[Caterina] Well, what a pity, huh?
You and I
could have been like Bonnie and Clyde.
[Germán laughs]
As long as we don't end up like 'em
Fine by me. [panting]
The client has already
confirmed his tickets.
He'll arrive at Barajas in 48 hours.
We'll make the delivery at a hotel.
He will grab a ticket
on the next flight out with the kid.
[Germán exhales]
My back is absolutely destroyed.
I think that
I'll probably go somewhere after this.
I'll take a long vacation.
[Germán panting]
[Caterina sighs]
Isn't it gonna be a little weird for you
to be alone with Gloria at the party?
Ugh, I already told you.
I've got everything under control.
I'll tell her that Alicia and Blanca
are coming
after the performance at school.
And that you're out looking
for a nice cake, out with Ana.
So I can take care of the baby and Julia
while you get Mariana and Eduardo.
Oh, of course, there is a chance
he won't want to see you at all.
Maybe he's angry.
Well, you can tell him
that you wanna say goodbye, right?
Hey, he could let you
get one more fuck in.
You're disgusting.
You know that? [chuckles]
This might just be what some real
marriages are actually like, you know.
- [Germán exhales]
- Wasting our days together.
I'm sorry.
Why do I keep ruining everything?
[Abel] I do too.
I told Mom about Marcos. Sorry.
[sighs] It's fine.
In the end, he just stood me up.
[inhales] He's a fucking asshole.
I waited there
for two hours like a stupid idiot.
And for what?
I risked everything for nothing.
You guys haven't talked?
[classical piano music plays]
Come here.
[liquid pours]
[chuckles] Remember when
a snake got into my room?
- [Aitana chuckles]
- It wasn't dangerous.
But Santi still killed it.
And you wouldn't stop crying.
Because you didn't want me to sleep alone.
You wanted me to be safe.
I remember they had us sleep
in different rooms that year.
[both laugh]
You bawled your eyes out
that night, right?
Until Mom put our beds
back together to stop you.
Stubborn little girl.
That's our way
of making sure everything's gonna be okay.
Being together, Mariana.
When we leave, no one can be left behind.
[Aitana sniffles]
[woman on TV] The railway
has now been shut down entirely
[telephone ringing]
- [beeps]
- Hello.
- [Fernando] Hello, Nata. How are you?
- Hi, Papa.
- How was Rio?
- Good. Well, you know how it is. [sighs]
Uh, it's hot though.
I went to the beach today.
I thought of Mom there.
[Fernando laughs]
Oh, your mother, she did love to get away.
Can I call you back in
in five minutes, please?
- Yes, of course.
- Thank you.
[woman on TV] a stab wound in his throat.
The famed businessman Adolfo Almonacid
received tragic news this morning,
concerning the death
of his son Marcos Almonacid.
The body was found
off a highway in Madrid.
The family was absolutely shocked
to hear of Marcos' passing.
[Natalia gasps]
How are you? How's the, uh, baby?
The baby.
Well, he's growing up fast,
but you know what that's like, I guess.
How's yours, huh?
Well, the newest thing is
she's actually started teething.
It's keeping us up at night. [chuckles]
I don't think that's possible yet.
Bit early? No?
The pediatrician told us that at this age,
we should just keep an eye on it.
Oh, yeah, Gloria.
Nothing, just confirming
that you're coming to the party for Ana.
Of course, I wouldn't let down Ana.
- Great to hear. [chuckles]
- Yeah.
Well, perfect, then.
I guess I'll see you there.
- See you there.
- Uh-huh.
- Can I give you a hand here?
- No, don't worry.
- You sure?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.
[engine turns over]
[horn honks]
[man] Yeah, don't worry.
I'll only be a minute.
No, one minute's too long.
If everyone parks wherever,
then it's a fucking mess.
[man] Relax, don't get worked up.
Think I'm worked up, fucking asshole?
I hope you teach better
than you can speak.
What the fuck did you say to me? Huh?
- Take your fucking car away!
- [Alicia] Hey!
- [Pedro] Move your car!
- Please.
What is this?
- Hey, big guy, you'll hear from the PTA.
- Yeah, go ahead!
- Fucking bastard.
- Pedro.
What is this? Are you crazy?
Huh? You're throwing tantrums now?
We shouldn't blame ourselves
for what happened to us.
- This isn't you. I don't like it.
- Oh, you don't?
So tell me what you like, then.
Should I always put on a show,
say it's all fine and then act happy?
Is that what you want?
You have no idea what it's like, do you?
- [exhales]
- No idea what it's like.
The constant pressure
I feel every day feel as a woman
who can't give you
what you want more than anything.
That's just not true, Alicia.
But for me, it feels that way, Pedro.
Get in.
[engine turns over]
[Aitana grunts softly]
[Hugo cries]
[continues wailing]
[lighter clicks]
[haunting choral music plays]
[siren wailing]
- [siren wailing]
- [Hugo crying]
[officer] Was your vehicle insured?
It was, and I also have a big van
that I use for work too.
Just don't park it around here
for the next few days, okay?
Obviously, it was deliberate.
Mother Mary.
Well, lately, there's been talk.
I've heard there's some punks
around the neighborhood.
- I don't know.
- You know who they are?
No, no, no.
But, uh, I've heard them around.
Well, drop by the station
to file a report.
Without that,
your insurance won't cover anything, okay?
Will do.
- [car doors closing]
- [engine turns over]
[door closes]
- [Aitana] Who set it on fire?
- I don't know.
But they said it definitely
wasn't an accident.
- I think we should leave tonight.
- No. [sighs]
That would be too suspicious. [exhales]
We can't make any hasty mistakes.
This time we'll do it right.
No more mistakes.
[telephone ringing]
Yes. [exhales]
Gloria, I'm concerned.
We saw there's a big fire on your street.
Yeah, it was my car.
- Your car, jeez.
- Yeah.
That's scary, honey.
But, hey, how are you feeling?
Well [sighs]
Shaken a little bit. [exhales]
Of course. Just relax.
'Cause I'm sure the ones who did it
were just some punks
who were being stupid, huh?
Let's talk about all this.
We need to figure out a solution.
When you come over,
we'll talk about it, okay?
- [inhales] Okay.
- Sounds great.
And hey, don't you worry.
If you need a car,
then you can always borrow mine.
We do have two of them, so
Thanks. [sighs]
No worries at all.
Huh? I'm happy to, really.
Bye, bye.
Who set the car on fire?
[Germán exhales]
What is it? What on earth do you want?
I really need to talk to Adolfo.
I'm a friend of the family and of Marcos.
- The gentlemen are not home.
- [sighs] Sorry about what happened.
But I need to know where they are
right now. Please, it's very urgent.
Please, it's very important!
Just please leave
or I'm gonna call the police.
- You hear?
- [sighs] No, please.
[birds chirping]
[slow ominous music builds]
[Caterina hums]
Well, look. Pow! Pow!
Don't leave home without it. [sucks teeth]
- [humming]
- [Ana crying]
I think the two of us
may go for a big walk now,
because it looks
like it's so beautiful out.
- Huh?
- Careful with that, huh?
[Caterina chuckles]
Get the most out of every day.
Because you never know.
- You never know.
- [Ana continues crying]
No, baby.
We're gonna make the most out
of our day today.
And up, whoo! And back down.
And careful with your little head.
- That's it.
- [Germán] Hmm.
Should we go? Come on now.
- [humming]
- [Ana babbling, laughing]
- [Caterina] Bye! And take out the trash.
- [door closes]
[Blanca] Can I speak with you?
Sure, of course.
Lorenzo will sing.
He told you he's ready to?
I birthed and raised him,
and I know him like the back of my hand.
Lorenzo has to face every challenge
that comes his way.
And he'll do better with you.
And besides,
I hear the show will be very beautiful.
Lorenzo is ready now. I know it.
Hmm. Okay.
[doorbell rings]
Oh, motherfucker. [huffs]
- What the hell are you doing here?
- I really miss you, Germán.
- [exhales]
- And I apologize for everything.
Caterina might come back
at any moment. You gotta leave.
- [Abel] I needed to see you.
- [sighs]
- Abel.
- Don't you ever forget about me.
Abel. We'll talk tomorrow.
I'll see you at 6:00 p.m.
at the gas station.
- Tomorrow?
- Okay? Yeah?
- I don't know if I can, Germán.
- Wait for me as long as it takes.
[Germán exhaling]
[crowd praying indistinctly]
[somber music playing]
[woman sobbing]
What's going on?
Marcos. [sobs]
He's been murdered.
He was just found on the side of the road.
- [woman continues sobbing]
- [sniffling]
[Aitana gasping]
[tense music builds]
[Gloria] Well, unfortunately,
I couldn't find a spare tire, Marcos.
What have you told Natalia?
And where's my daughter?
[Aitana sobbing]
- [Marcos] You're Aitana's mother?
- [Gloria] Yes, she's my flesh and blood.
- [thunder crashes]
- Even if she wishes that she wasn't.
I'm not gonna let someone
like you ruin everything we have.
So it's all true. You stole her son.
I didn't steal anyone. That child is mine.
I carried him. So he's mine.
[Marcos] Where's Aitana?
Forget Aitana. Stay away from her
and I'll give you
a little piece of advice.
- It'd be bad for
- Enough, I'm bringing the police here.
[engine turns over]
[engine turns over]
[gasps, screams]
[engine revving]
[engine revving]
- [shouts] Mariana! Mariana!
- [screams]
[panting] Tell me why
you did that to Marcos!
- What'd you say?
- You murdered him!
You murdered him, Mom!
- No [splutters]
- Yes!
- I don't know what you're talking
- Just stop with the lies!
- Baby.
- I can't take your fucking lies anymore!
- [Gloria] Just breathe, honey, breathe.
- [sobbing]
Relax, baby. It's okay. Easy, easy, easy.
- [sighs]
- You're a murderer!
Easy, easy.
Everything I do is for all of you.
And who protects us from you? [sobbing]
Relax, baby. Relax, okay?
- It's okay.
- No!
Swear on the memory
of Santi it wasn't you.
Swear to me now!
- I swear it. On the memory of Santi.
- [sobbing]
- [Abel] Mariana.
- [sobbing]
- Mom. Fuck's going on?
- [sobbing]
[tense music builds]
[dramatic stinger fades]
[Gloria] Here's your baby, sweetheart.
[Caterina] Are you the mom
of the kid's mom or the mom of the father?
[Gloria] No, not his grandmother.
I'm his mother.
[Caterina] Is it hard
to raise a child all alone?
[Alicia] Children don't forget anything.
They even remember
their mother's womb too.
[Natalia] Papa has already bought tickets.
I'm asking you to understand.
[Blanca] You don't trust us for that?
[Aitana] Doesn't matter
if his name is Eduardo or Abel.
He's already living with us.
[Blanca] A child's first birthday
is important.
[Aitana] It's all because of this kid.
This baby doesn't change things.
- Marcos, hold on!
- [Marcos] You hit a big rock.
[Aitana] I'm not gonna be
in your goddamn play forever.
[keyboard clacking]
[Abel] Are you okay?
This is the only footage
that I could recover.
- It was our favorite Christmas together.
- [chuckles]
[suspenseful music plays]
If Mom did it,
how can we ever trust her again?
Mom has made a lot of mistakes,
like all of us.
But she's not a killer.
But what if she is now?
[inhales, exhales]
I don't think I can sleep alone.
- [exhales]
- [distant thump]
[water running]
[Ana crying]
[shushing] Quiet, sweetheart. Stay quiet.
[water continues running]
- [clicks]
- [flame roars]
[explosion booms]
Oh, shit!
[Germán] What happened?
Oh, shit!
[suspenseful music plays]
[crowd murmuring]
[murmuring continues]
Oh, shit. [exhales]
- Shit.
- Jesus fucking Christ.
[Caterina and Germán exhale]
- [crowd murmuring]
- [exhales]
[Caterina exhales]
[siren wailing]
Oh, shit.
Your buddies.
Bye. [sighs]
[officer] Please go back
to your homes now.
Go back to your homes, please.
- [music fades]
- [sirens wailing]
- [siren wailing]
- [groans]
- Officer, please!
- Everybody, stay back.
- Help! My car, sir.
- It's gonna be okay.
[whispers] Abel.
I need you to get together with Germán.
- [Abel] Right now?
- Yeah, now.
- [Abel] But it's late, Mom.
- Either you write to him or I will.
[Abel huffs]
[sighing] Okay, okay, okay.
Germán. Germán, this isn't a coincidence.
- [sighs] Okay.
- I know it wasn't the punks, so
Do you think it was your boy?
Don't think so, Caterina.
- [exhales] Are you leaving?
- [door closes]
[Germán] Abel.
- Abel, sorry. [panting]
- Shh! Shh!
I've been lying.

Shoot him, son. [gasps]
Shoot him!
Shoot him now.
- [Germán coughs]
- [Gloria] Shoot him!
- [Germán gasping, coughing]
- Just shoot him now. [gasps]
[gasps] Shoot him now!
- [Germán continues gasping, coughing]
- [Abel] You do it.
- [gasps]
- [Germán panting]
- [door closes]
- [Germán gulps]
I'm not Julia. My name is Gloria.
- [Germán gasps]
- So who hired you?
[Gloria] Fernando?
Natalia? [panting]
[Germán grunts] No.
Natalia's not involved.
She loves her son.
He's my son!
[Germán grunts] Put down the gun, Gloria.
What was the plan?
- Murder me?
- [groans]
Was seducing my son a part too?
And take away the baby?
[Germán coughs, clears throat]
No. On Saturday,
at Ana's party. [exhales]
Put down the gun and go.
- [panting]
- [gasps]
Well, the party's over now.
- And you're gonna help me.
- [Germán coughs]
You will help me.
[tense music playing]
Gloria! [sighs]
I was seeing if she would fall asleep
in the car.
[both] See you tomorrow.

[inhales, smacks lips] Uh
This morning we opened a few presents,
and Eduardo got this
[Mariana] I got my piano.
- Santi! Mom, look at Santi!
- [Julia] Inside voice.
- Okay, honey?
- Inside voice.
- Want some?
- [Mariana] Look at that!
- You want some cake?
- [Santi] Okay, let me.
Okay, find it!
[Julia gasps] Oh!
- That's not fair!
- [Julia gasps]
- [Edu] I wanted it!
- Look who the queen is.
- [Edu] It's mine!
- [Santi] Take it off!
- Hey! Hey, hey, hey!
- [Mariana] Edu, calm down!
- [Julia] No, it's not yours. It's mine!
- [Edu] Give it back to me!
