The Door

[apprehensive music playing]
- [phone beeps]
- [dialing]
- [line ringing]
- Here we go.
- Yes?
- [Gloria] Fernando?
The delivery will not take place today.
Why? What happened to my daughter?
Nothing happened.
We just had a a setback.
Listen, we had a deal.
When there's an agreement,
there shouldn't be setbacks.
But she's gone insane.
I mean it, she just lost it.
And she's a danger to herself,
but above all to Hugo.
[Fernando] Who's Hugo?
Nicolás, my son.
If you're thinking of doing something
you can't just bring me down.
I'll bring her down with me.
I'm warning you.
What do you want?
A day or two.
As many as it takes.
I have no interest in keeping her here.
[Fernando] Are you looking out the window?
That guy out there, he has
much less to lose than you and I do.
So be very careful.
Have a good night.
Good night, Fernando.
[breathes deeply]
Mom, she said she was leaving
and she just wanted to hug him
one last time.
I swear
I don't know, I felt bad, you know?
- She tricked me. You have to trust me.
- I trust you. I do, I do, I do.
But now the important thing
is that we're going to fix it.
[Abel] How are we fixing it?
As one family.
All together.
Come here.
It's the best way.
[mysterious music playing]
[Abel] Do you enjoy screwing Mom over?
I didn't do it on purpose.
You're lying to my face.
When did I ever lie?
Who's Felipe? He left you a message!
Easy. Don't talk to me like that.
He's Marcos's brother. I'm seeing him.
Fucking amazing, Mariana. Fucking amazing.
I'm helping him figure out what happened
because I also need to know.
[Abel sighs]
But don't worry,
I didn't mention you guys.
I don't care if you mention us, Mariana!
If you're close to them, you're putting us
in danger again like you keep doing!
Edu, you have no goddamn clue
what it feels like!
When I saw him for the first time,
I just froze.
- He looks just like him.
- [bittersweet music playing]
Just like him.
He's not him, Mariana.
Be careful.
[door closes]
I'll go take a shower. [grunts]
- [door closes]
- Shh.
- [suspenseful music playing]
- [shower running]
Shh, shh.
[baby fusses softly]
[baby fussing quietly]
- [shower running]
- [suspenseful music continues]
- [shower running]
- [baby crying]
[phone dialing]
[line ringing]
[phone ringing]
Gloria, when were you
gonna tell me about that man?
- [mysterious music playing]
- Blanca
[Blanca] Marga told me about it.
I don't know
I just I can't believe it. It's just
Yeah. I'm sorry
I thought about telling you, but
I went to the police
in case they could do something fast.
I know you did it for me.
Don't worry about it.
But I need to know more about him.
What'd he look like?
He was very nervous.
But I'm not sure
he's connected to this, Blanca.
Are you sure talking about this
helps right now?
What else could help me right now?
Do you know? Because I don't.
Me neither.
I just didn't want to hurt you.
Will you come with me to buy flowers?
[exhales] Yeah, sure. I'll pick you up.
[mysterious music continues]
- [chimes tingle]
- [intercom ringing]
- [baby fussing]
- Shh.
The kid needs to eat something
and get some sleep.
Really, Julia?
You're trying to give me parental advice?
I gave birth to four.
[yelling] I gave birth to all four!
Kids who fear their mother.
No. I'm not falling for this.
You know what?
I'm surprised you're still doing this.
Especially knowing
that Santi was abandoning you.
You can't drive a wedge between
me and my family, not to mention Santi.
[on intercom] Your children have
as many secrets as you do, maybe more.
Obviously. They were taught by a master.
Why don't you ask Edu
about the video he made for Santi,
a goodbye video?
Just the day before he died.
He was saying goodbye, Julia.
Ask him then.
He remembers every word of it, I'm sure.
Unless you want to keep wondering forever.
[dark music playing]
[door closing in distance]
[dark music continues]
[tape whirring]
[phone line ringing]
[man on phone] Hello, good morning.
This is the scrapyard.
- How can I help you?
- [woman speaking indistinctly on phone]
[man on phone] Well, yeah, absolutely.
We can provide this kind of service,
but, uh
[indistinct chatter on phone]
[man on phone] Yes, that's just,
you know, a little more expensive.
- [indistinct chatter on phone]
- [man on phone] Yeah.
Yeah, yeah, full discretion.
You don't have to worry about that.
[indistinct chatter on phone]
- [man on phone] Yeah, of course. Today.
[indistinct chatter on phone]
- [man on phone] All right, sounds good.
- [indistinct chatter on phone]
[man on phone] We haven't
seen anything here.
[metal crumpling]
[dark music playing]
[man counting indistinctly]
[gentle music playing]
[Abel] Why didn't you tell me
you were going on vacation?
[Manu chuckles softly]
Can you imagine?
Where would you like to be right now?
[Abel chuckles]
Anywhere where there are
no white coats is fine with me.
[Manu] And no fluorescent lights.
[Abel] No dry sandwich vending machines.
[sweet music playing]
A beach right in the Caribbean.
Even better.
One in the Pacific.
One of those enormous never-ending ones.
Mmm. Mexico. Oaxaca.
- You can get lost there.
- [laughs softly]
I was just thinking about that beach.
My life's a goddamn disaster.
Don't say that.
My partner is there,
just lying in the bed.
I don't even know if he'll wake up again.
Have faith.
Everything's gonna be fine, you'll see.
Come. I want to show you something.
[dealer] I've got dope, I've got hash.
I've got pills, bro.
Premium quality.
[menacing music playing faintly]
What the fuck are you doing here? Huh?
Are they back or something?
I don't have any news.
I'm sorry.
I came here because I found this.
I'm assuming it's for you.
What is this?
- Did they give it to you?
- No.
They left a suitcase at my place.
I didn't think
to look until I saw you, and
it was there inside a pocket.
And how the fuck did you find me here?
The directions to this place
are on the envelope.
I guess you used to meet them here, right?
I don't want this.
I just want to be with my daughter,
Help me find them.
I'm begging you, please.
- I'm sorry. There's nothing more I can do.
- Please
- I'm sorry.
- I just don't know what to do
- If I see them, I'll let you know!
- I just
When he was admitted,
they gave me this ring.
I don't know.
It's like he's hiding something.
I don't know if I should be here.
You give me an evening,
and I'm certain I can change your mind.
[pensive music playing]
[woman] She doesn't notice anything.
[Chino] This girl? She notices everything.
[woman] People want to believe that.
People of faith.
Are you a man of faith,
like the Argentinian?
[Chino] No
But I know she's gonna wake up.
I do too.
But she won't remember you chatting.
I'm just saying, you know.
Is she doing better?
I didn't plan on saying anything
to avoid giving you false hope.
Yeah, well
only the good die young, apparently.
Is she bad?
It depends who's telling the story.
[Felipe on voicemail] Aitana?
This is Felipe.
[laughs] Damn, I hate voicemails.
Uh, listen, despite all this, I
I just want to
I want to let you know
I had a great time with you.
I don't know
if you'd like to grab a drink sometime
I'd really enjoy that.
Give me a call if you're interested.
[voicemail whirs and beeps]
[playing soft classical melody]
- You sound amazing, my love.
- [Abel] Yeah, amazing.
For a girl with such tiny hands, not bad.
- Shut up!
- [Abel laughing]
You got tiny little piggy hands
[Aitana] You're so fucking dumb.
If you say the piggy thing again,
you'll see.
- [indistinct chatter in background]
- [piano playing resumes]
- [Aitana] You're a pain in the ass.
- [doorbell ringing]
- [Gloria] Oh, someone's ringing. Coming.
- [kids arguing]
- [doorbell ringing]
- [Gloria] Coming! Coming!
[piano playing continues]
[door opens]
- [Natalia] Hi!
- [Gloria] Hey! How are you?
- [Natalia] Julia, how are you? All good?
- [Gloria] I'm good. Yeah.
- [Natalia] Is Santi here?
- [Gloria] Yeah, he's in the bathroom.
- Tell them to stop arguing.
- [Natalia] All right. Hey, guys.
I can't stop thinking about it.
[indistinct chatter in background]
I can almost see him.
[stifling tears]
I've ruined everything.
[sweet music playing softly]
Did you feel it?
This is the only real thing we have,
my love.
The accident never happened.
Tomorrow is the last ultrasound.
And you can see him again.
I'm a monster.
You're not a monster.
Listen to me. You're Nico's father.
You're the best.
And your son is going to need you.
["Evergreen" by Patrick Duff playing]
My love is gone ♪
Her spirit floats ♪
And calls me on ♪
Her spirit laughs ♪
And calls to me ♪
- [song playing on headphones]
- Deep in the ground ♪
Is where she sleeps ♪
Deep in the ground ♪
Is where she sleeps ♪
[Felipe] Thank you.
I hadn't listened to it.
He wouldn't show me
what he was doing towards the end.
So no updates yet?
It's really helpful
to be able to share this with you.
What will it be, lovebirds?
I'll have an Espresso Martini.
Have one. You'll like it.
- No, thanks. I'll have a cup of coffee.
- Sure thing.
You don't drink alcohol?
[chuckles] I know who's driving tonight.
By the way
This jacket
- Is it Marcos's?
- Mm-hm.
It's yours now.
Thank you.
Are you okay?
I was worried about you the other day.
I don't think it's a good idea
to keep seeing each other, Felipe.
I'm not sure Marcos
would have wanted this.
[sighs] I don't know
But I do know we make a great team.
And I love spending time with you.
Now I get
why my brother liked you so much.
I mean, I'm starting to feel the same.
Oh, shit.
That's the problem.
I'm pregnant with Marcos's child, Felipe.
You don't need to say anything.
I couldn't speak either.
[pensive music playing]
Did he Did he know about it?
He didn't even suspect it
the last time we saw each other.
Not even my family knows.
Ugh, fuck, I never wanted
to be a mother, especially like this.
I'm happy about it.
At least you'll still get a bit of him
left in the world, you know?
You have no idea what you're saying.
Shit, a baby changes everything.
You have no idea.
[saw whirring loudly]
[doorbell ringing]
- [doorbell ringing]
- Coming!
Gloria, are you there?
- [banging on door]
- [Ramón] Gloria, are you there?
It's Ramón.
- [flustered] Uh, sorry, I'm a little busy.
- Right, I
I'm sorry, I just
You see Are you going to the funeral?
Yeah, of course!
Okay, I just wanted to talk to you about
the man you said you saw in the park.
Gloria, can you open the door? Please?
Ramón! Sorry, I didn't hear you.
I had to go to the kitchen
to turn off the stove.
- What were you saying?
- Yeah, no problem.
I just wanted to talk to you
about the man you saw in the park.
Let's talk about it at the funeral.
What do you think?
Uh, Gloria, um, one last thing.
Uh, can we talk away from Blanca,
if you don't mind?
Of course, sure.
[Manu] Well, it's not a beach in Oaxaca,
but it's beautiful.
- What's this?
- [Abel] Shall we make a toast?
[can opening]
To those of us who have no idea
what will become of our lives.
[can opening]
Well, that would be me.
To us, then.
To us.
[wistful music playing]
Hey, may I ask you something?
Hit me.
Are you still in love with him?
I don't know.
It's been a while
since things got very complicated.
But even in the most difficult moments,
I couldn't just dump him and walk away.
You have to be very brave for that.
Are you a coward then?
I guess the ring thing
it's because
he didn't want to hurt me either.
I don't know.
It's inevitable.
[Manu] Yeah.
Ah, what would you know?
You're just a kid.
You better watch out.
Who knows? You might be surprised.
Did you follow me here?
Maybe I know you
a little better than you think.
I haven't been here before.
I wasn't able to.
[Felipe] I have.
At first, I came here every night.
I don't really know
what I was looking for here.
- Him.
- [wistful music playing]
[Felipe] I guess.
Is that what you're looking for?
Life's a bitch, really.
I never imagined
I'd have to lose my brother
to find someone like you.
Maybe I'm not what you think I am.
Because maybe you're better.
Aitana, I know
this is absolutely your decision.
But just listen to me for a sec.
Then you can tell me to go fuck myself.
I've been thinking about it, and
I want this.
I can help you with all of it.
With anything you need.
And I know I'm not the baby's father.
But I don't know.
I could be something else.
I don't know what.
But something.
This child is also my family.
So I want to be there for him.
And for you, if you'll let me.
[gentle music playing]
[Abel] Remember what I told you?
[Manu] Yeah.
"You give me an evening
and I'm certain I can change your mind."
[Abel] How am I doing?
["Amor A La Mala"
by Odilio Gonzalez playing on radio]
[phone dialing]
- [Chino] Fernando.
- [on phone] What's the news?
[Chino] Eduardo arrived five minutes ago
and Julia just left.
- [Fernando] Where's she going?
- I think she's going to church.
[Fernando] Good. Great.
Now I'll know where to find her.
- I'll call you later.
- Are we going in?
No, no, no, no, no.
We're changing the game around.
- I'll call you later.
- Okay.
- [phone beeps]
- ["Amor A La Mala" continues on radio]
- [somber music playing]
- [Blanca] I don't know what to say.
I've been preparing for this moment
since yesterday, and now that I'm here,
it feels like
nothing I could say would be enough.
You all know what Lorenzo was like.
[Blanca stifling tears]
Mischievous and also very loving.
And all of that is gone
after just one night.
I'm sorry.
It comforts me to know
that he's been very loved by
by his friends and by us.
I've always been there.
I've done everything
that was physically possible.
And Ramón has been an exceptional father.
Always ready to do anything
just to make him happy.
Even if he had to catch a five-hour flight
just to give him a hug.
The two of us, we gave everything for him.
I just hope that he left this earth
knowing how much we loved him.
[voice breaking] And how much
we still need and miss him.
Thank you, Father.
[somber music continues]
- [woman] Blanca.
- Thank you.
[woman] Whatever you need, I'm here, okay?
[woman] Ramón, I'm sorry.
[Gloria] Blanca, I'm sorry.
[somber music continues]
- It's so sad, isn't it?
- Yes, very sad.
May God keep him in his holy glory.
What a beautiful funeral, right?
What are you doing here?
Let's hope it's the only funeral.
Take me to Natalia.
Okay, follow me.
Your father.
- Papa!
- Oh my God, sweetie
Don't get any closer!
Not until you give me the kid.
Give it to her.
- Give it to her, sweetie.
- What?
- [Fernando] Let him go so we can leave.
- What are you saying? No!
You have to get me out of here with Nico!
Just give it to her.
That child is not from God. Come on.
- [baby fussing]
- You forced it. Everyone forced it.
Even I did when I gave him back to you.
This child bears my blood.
- My blood!
- [Fernando] Let's go.
Without me, he would have never been born.
Do you know why you're still alive?
Because I gave my word to Julia
that we were leaving without him.
- Your word?
- Let's go, sweetie.
- What's wrong with you?
- [baby cries]
- You were supposed to be on my side, Dad!
- Come on, come on.
If you come any closer
I mean it. Try me. I don't care.
I want all of you out of here.
All of you. Out.
- [Fernando] Easy.
- [shouting] Get out! Get out right now!
- [baby cries]
- [Gloria] Okay.
I can't do anything.
You've seen her. It's impossible.
You're crazy, Julia.
I should kill you.
Because of you,
we're trapped in this madness,
for God's sake.
- [gun cocks]
- [suspenseful music playing]
[Fernando] Do you know
how much I'm paying him?
A fortune.
You're proving yourself costly, Julia.
Now I can see that no amount of money
is enough to pay whoever shoots you.
I don't think any of us wants a bloodbath.
[gun cocks]
Put that down.
That's not who you are.
- Just help me.
- [Abel] Shut up.
Do it for Santi.
Shut up already!
[baby crying]
Do you know how much I pay my son?
Because he would give his life for me.
Would Natalia give hers for you?
Now leave.
Get the fuck out!
[Fernando] Put that down.
[gentle music playing]
[printer whirring]
[door opening]
[Pedro] Hi, sweetie.
[Alicia] The funeral
took longer than expected.
I thought you'd be there.
I told you, I was at the hospital.
No news yet.
Germán is still in a coma
and I didn't see anyone with him.
We'll have to wait till he gets better.
"Till he gets better"?
What if he never wakes up?
Then what's the plan?
I don't know, but, uh
for now,
I'm gonna ask for an unpaid leave.
And you decided that on your own?
I mean, I feel so sorry for her.
She's the one
who suffered the most in all this.
I just worry about her.
Do you think you're the only one
who cares about Ana?
I don't play a part in your life.
Alicia, come on, please
- Alicia!
- No!
It's no problem
that you're playing pretend family,
but you forgot you already have one.
What do we do now?
[Gloria] Nothing.
Sometimes I wonder
what Santi would have wanted.
That day on the beach,
Santi said something to you.
Just answer!
What do you want to know?
He had a plan?
[wistful music playing]
[woman] Here's the head.
And, look, the heart.
[woman laughs] He's very happy today.
[wistful music continues]
[woman] Where's Santi?
I thought he'd be joining you
for the last ultrasound.
[driver yelling] Off the road!
Ah, it doesn't make sense. What do
What do you mean, the tapes aren't there?
The school has always been surveilled.
I don't know. There's something
they didn't want us to see, apparently.
Don't freak out, but it's very unlikely
that this was just an accident, Ramón.
Very unlikely.
[somber music playing]
I'm sorry.
I'll find whoever's behind this.
I promise.
Can I ask you for a personal favor?
Of course. That's what friends are for.
If you find anything out,
whatever it is, no matter how heavy
will you tell me first, Marga?
Consider it done.
- [Ramón] Blanca!
- Where did you go?
[Ramón] Outside for a bit.
- I needed some fresh air.
- [apprehensive music playing]
[toilet flushing]
[Ramón] Thank you.
For what?
For what you said today in church.
Do you really think that of me?
I fell in love with you for a reason.
Blanca, you know,
I'm still the same person.
I know.
When you're home,
I'm reminded of that every second.
That's why I like it when you're here.

Aitana Martínez?
You can still choose not to do it.
