Buenos Aires

- [fireworks popping in distance]
- ["Un Año Más" playing]
[gentle pop song continues]
[gentle pop song continues]
[muffled dialogue]
I can't hear you.
[muffled dialogue]
I can't hear you.
[muffled dialogue continues]
I can't hear you.
[phone ringing]
[soft crying on phone]
[Natalia] Julia
[mysterious music playing]
I'd be a piece of shit
if I didn't tell you.
You're a piece of shit
no matter what you tell me.
I don't know you and I don't plan to.
Get out of here.
But you know Germán, right?
- What?
- Your beloved boyfriend.
The one who made up
a whole new life when he got here.
With a wife, even a daughter.
That's why he had that ring.
What the fuck are you talking about?
He's a goddamn hit man
and he fucking lied to you!
- Get out.
- You had to know.
Get out! Get out of here!
You had to know!
Because the son of a bitch
made that whole life up
- just to steal a baby from a family!
- [object shatters]
You don't understand shit, Manu!
You have no idea!
Have you ever met
any of his work colleagues?
Have you? Of course not.
Because he would have killed anyone,
just like he did with his fake partner.
[yelling] Why the fuck
do you know about this? Why?
Because they wanted to kill my family!
My family, for fuck's sake!
- [grave music playing]
- [sighs]
So why were you making out with him?
Is this a game for you?
He lied to both of us.
And you got the worst of it.
I need to talk to him.
Where the fuck are you going?
Germán is dangerous!
[indistinct chatter on PA]
[siren blaring]
[door closes]
[Abel] Where were you?
Why are you in your pajamas?
My wish didn't come true after all.
We didn't have dinner together.
[Abel] Yeah.
[Gloria] There, there, honey.
[Abel] Germán's awake now.
And? Did you guys talk?
No. I couldn't do it.
But I stayed there
in case anyone showed up.
Anyone? Like who?
Fernando had other plans tonight.
He fell off the rooftop of his hotel.
- What do you mean, he fell?
- [sighs] I don't buy it either.
Why the fuck would he kill himself now?
It's impossible. He's too religious.
He wouldn't kill himself.
And besides,
he already got what he wanted.
As much as you like this life, Mom,
I think that's enough.
Stop saying that I like this life.
Then cut the bullshit about the passports.
- Let's leave, the four of us.
- And go where?
Somewhere in the countryside!
Natalia will do anything for her damn son.
- [Chino] Where the fuck is your father?
- He's dead.
[Chino] What?
We argued. He couldn't take the pressure
and jumped from the terrace.
Are you kidding me? What the fuck?
You're gonna drive me crazy.
- You expect me to believe you?
- Consider it a sign.
My father paid you to get my son back.
I'll give you the rest
when we get to Buenos Aires.
This is not how I work. Forget it.
Are you a father?
[chuckles] Yeah.
Well, I'm sure you can
make an exception for me.
- [phone ringing]
- [sinister music playing]
[ringing continues]
[Chino] Get in.
- [Natalia] Did anyone see it?
- [Santi] No.
She took care of everything.
Why didn't you tell me this earlier?
Because I couldn't, Natalia.
I felt like shit, damn it.
- And I still do.
- Now I understand the rush.
We have to leave.
The sooner the better.
You don't know how hard it is
to look at your mother,
wanting to love her
but not recognizing her.
I shouldn't have left you alone.
I'm sorry.
It doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter now.
But I don't think
leaving will solve anything.
Even 6,000 miles away
That guy was my age.
He had a child.
He was happy like we're happy with Nico.
Now what?
I could have stopped her.
No. If you go to the police,
now you'll just make it worse.
Yeah, but I can't live with this.
His child deserves
to know what happened to him.
But if it's between your mother and you
I'll choose you always.
You have Nico.
He really needs you.
I'm not gonna let you ruin that.
So do whatever you have to do.
[pensive music playing]
[phone ringing]
[Alicia] Hi, Gloria? It's me, Alicia.
[Gloria] Alicia? What's going on?
[Alicia] Did you hear about
Lorenzo's case? I can't believe it!
- I'm shocked! I don't know what to think.
- Oh, right.
She came by the other day. Uh, Marga.
Uh, she told me.
[Gloria] And, uh,
I can't get my head around the fact
that someone could do something
like that to a kid. I don't know.
[Alicia] It can't be true! It's horrible!
I know Jesús really well.
We started working at the school
at the same time.
He was a really great colleague.
He was so polite!
- [voice fading] I really don't think
- [dark music playing]
[Abel] Alicia just called Mom
to talk about Lorenzo.
Looks like it was someone from the school.
What's up with you now?
I don't know how I could have been
so wrong about Mom.
I'm pregnant and it's Marcos's.
- What do you mean, his? How can it be?
- [laughs]
Are you sure?
I'm terrified.
But I haven't been
this sure about anything in a long time.
[Abel laughs softly]
Well, I'm very happy for you, Mariana.
I think it's gonna be great.
- [pensive music playing]
- Does Felipe know?
He encouraged me.
I don't know what we are,
but I know he's helping me so much.
Hey, hey, hey.
Don't worry,
because I'll always, always be here.
[laughing] I'm gonna be an uncle now, huh?
I'm so happy, sis.
- [Aitana laughing]
- [Abel exclaims] Oh my God!
Are you celebrating?
The three of us are here.
[Abel] Come over here.
Oh, kids.
I love you so much.
- [softly] I love you so much.
- Come on, Mom.
I love you so much.
More than anything in this world.
Here. This is a copy.
But, uh, this is exactly what he wrote.
Let's keep it between us, please.
Okay? No one can know about it.
But he doesn't
he doesn't say why.
- He doesn't say it.
- No.
He doesn't even mention it.
That son of a bitch.
You don't know how sorry I am.
I'll leave you two alone for a while.
Okay? I think you need it.
Thank you for everything
you're doing for us, Marga.
We owe you so much.
It's nothing, Ramón, really.
Marga is only doing her job.
That's what she's paid for.
Shit, Blanca, you're unbelievable.
You just always appreciate others more.
Look, with everything that's going on,
don't make it even harder, please.
I'm begging you.
I'm just a bit relieved to know that
we have trustworthy people helping us.
Relieved? That's bullshit.
I do not feel relieved at all.
This letter is
That man, I don't
I don't know what to make of it.
- What do you mean?
- I don't know.
It's all very strange.
[pensive music playing]
Do you know
where the mortgage envelope is?
I've always kept it here.
I forgot to tell you.
I lent Julián some money.
He's having a hard time with the divorce.
But he's gonna pay me back.
[angrily] Thank you for letting me know.
Pedro, that money is also mine.
Fuck, Ali, I don't know.
- I thought
- And you thought what?
What were you thinking? Tell me then.
It feels like being anyone else to you
is better than being your wife.
[phone ringing]
[Blanca] Hello?
[Gloria] Blanca.
[Blanca] Hi, Gloria.
- I spoke to Marga.
- Uh-huh.
And, well, I recognized him.
It was the man from the park.
I didn't know he was the janitor.
I'm sorry.
Oh, Gloria. I need you more than ever now.
Can we meet in the park?
I have stuff to do, and
Ugh, I have to take care of Hugo.
Isn't Aitana working for you anymore?
Uh, Aitana couldn't make it.
But you know what? Let's do this.
I'll finish up everything real quick,
I'll call Alicia,
and I'll pick you up then.
We need to stick together.
Thank you, Gloria.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
How are you doing without the IV?
[Germán] Well, I miss it. It's better than
the chicken here, actually.
[Manu laughs dryly]
I guess you can't wait to leave
the hospital and go to Barcelona, right?
You got any plans after you leave?
To stop, Manu.
I plan to stop.
So the bodyguard life is not for you, huh?
Or a bodyguard near death.
I mean, I never wanted to do this, right?
My whole life I wanted to be a cop,
but turns out
you really can't be a gay cop.
[Manu sighs] Right.
Does this ring a bell?
It was with your things.
What do you want to know?
- Just the truth.
- The truth? And what is the truth?
Don't you know by now
that I need a fake ID for my own safety?
That's a lie and you know it.
Look, Manu, we both screwed up,
and I lied to you, a lot
I don't know who you are!
I don't recognize you.
Why? Have you spoken to anyone?
Who would I speak to?
Then why are you accusing me?
What do you want here?
I'm not in the mood to talk about it.
"Not in the mood."
[door opens]
[door slams]
Why don't you go to a pawnshop
and bring me cash?
[Gloria] Well
Because I'm running out of time, Omar.
- I thought you didn't want the passport.
- Why am I here, then?
Please. I'm begging you, please.
I need something more valuable.
[somber music playing]
[grunts softly] This is
This is very valuable.
I'll get it done as soon as possible.
[somber music fades out]
[Claudia] Hey, excuse me, curly hair guy.
I I don't know your name.
- Pedro, but I'm in a bit of a hurry.
- Here, the money. I can't keep this money.
I just want to be
with my daughter, please.
I'm sorry.
I've done everything I can to help.
- I'm sorry.
- I'm begging you.
I mean it. I don't know where to go, okay?
Please, I'm begging you. Please.
[car door slams]
[tapping] That's my daughter.
That's my daughter, you son of a bitch!
That's my fucking daughter!
Open the door, you son of a bitch!
[pensive music playing]
[Alicia] Hey.
Ali, I think I left my wallet
at the supermarket.
I'm gonna go find it, okay?
[pensive music continues]
Where is she, huh? Where is she?
Get out of the car, you damn jerk!
Why the fuck do you have my daughter, huh?
Why the fuck do you have my daughter?
Because Caterina is dead!
She told me to take care of her
and that's what I'm doing.
You don't have to take care of anything.
I'm her mother.
So you're gonna bring her here right now
or I'll go to the police.
And tell them what? Huh?
That you used to rent her
to buy some drugs?
Look, if you take her,
we're both gonna lose her.
- You understand?
- No.
- [Claudia] We're not
- Is that what you want?
[Claudia] I'm getting clean,
so I'll be able to take care of her.
- What the fuck does that matter, huh?
- She's mine, for fuck's sake.
You're only going
to ruin her life by doing that.
And I won't let that happen.
- Move!
- She's mine.
She's mine! She's mine! She's mine!
[angrily] She's mine! She's mine!
She's mine! She's mine
[unsettling music playing]
[doorbell ringing]
How are you?
[sighs] Bad.
What did you expect?
[door closes]
[Abel] Where are you going?
Far away from here.
[Abel] What did he tell you?
[Manu scoffs]
What he didn't tell me, you mean?
It fucking sucks to realize
that the last 15 years of your life
have been a goddamn lie.
I don't know who he is.
I don't recognize him.
It's not your fault.
It's not about who's at fault, Abel.
But I'm a bit at fault for not seeing it.
Much better this way, Manu.
Do you blame yourself for anything?
You're not gonna tell me
you're in love with me?
Maybe I was looking for a father.
[dark music playing]
Banging a father's messed up.
You're doing the right thing.
[mysterious music playing]
[door closing]
[Blanca] My sister-in-law is coming today
to get Lorenzo's things.
[Alicia] Blanca, think about it.
Are you sure
you don't want to keep anything?
[Blanca] No. I'm sure.
[Gloria] How can you be sure of that?
What if one day you feel lonely
and you want something
to help remember him?
- [Natalia] Gloria Román?
- [mysterious music continues]
I'm Nata, Aitana's friend.
Could we talk for a sec?
[Blanca] Can't you wait a little bit?
[Gloria] She's Aitana's friend.
[whispers] She's really, really weird.
[Blanca] I was just telling Gloria
I haven't seen her for days.
Poor Gloria.
[Alicia] Well, don't worry
about her right now. We're here for you.
[Natalia] I knew you wouldn't make a fuss.
You don't want them
to find out who you are.
Maybe they wouldn't care
about what happened in Melilla,
but Blanca would care
about you killing her son.
I didn't kill Lorenzo.
I've come to realize that
we're more alike than I'd like to admit.
You killed your father.
So naturally that's why you
want to believe that I killed that boy.
You could go to jail
for what you did, obviously.
If Santi hadn't died back then,
you would be in jail.
He was gonna turn you in to the cops
for what you did that night.
As soon as we got to Buenos Aires.
- That is not true.
- [scoffs]
What would I gain from lying, Julia?
- He saw you.
- [tense music playing]
And he told me all of it.
He was afraid of you.
He saw what you were capable of.
And he kept telling himself that
if it wasn't for you,
maybe that man would be alive.
Why did you come here?
The only thing he could do
was to walk away.
And turn you in
so that you would pay for what you did.
[voice breaking]
And after what I did to my father
I would just hate myself if Nico
saw me the way Santi saw you.
And it pisses me off.
Of course it pisses me off.
After what I did,
I don't want to be near that child.
I couldn't bear it.
The only thing that keeps me at ease
is knowing that
you'll do anything to take care of him.
[gentle music playing]
I came to say goodbye.
[laughs dryly]
[Natalia] That's why I came.
[pensive music playing]
[news jingle playing on TV]
[reporter] Coming next,
the ongoing investigation
into the death of Rubén Olid
takes an intriguing turn
with the latest forensic release,
as it turns out new evidence point towards
a possible hit-and-run before his demise
[indistinct chatter
and laughter in background]
[Santi] Hey, who's in charge
of changing the diapers?
'Cause it stinks
and none of you seem to care.
[Aitana] Don't look at me!
I never played with dolls.
[Santi] Ah, well,
I should change Nico's diapers or hers?
- [chatter continues in background]
- [Gloria laughs]
Hey, guys?
Next week we're going to the beach!
- Enough with the swimming pool.
- [Aitana] I'm in!
[Abel] Me too,
but I'm not changing diapers.
- [Santi] Really, Mom?
- Sure.
- [laughs] It's been ages, right?
- [Abel] Tell me about it.
- [Santi] I was dying to go to the beach.
- [Aitana] It's gonna be good.
[Santi] When was the last time we went?
[wistful music playing]
[doorbell ringing]
[ringing continues]
- [woman] Welcome. Come in.
- Hi. Thanks.
[Felipe] I knew you wouldn't let me down.
- [Aitana laughs]
- Thank you.
- Marcos would have wanted this.
- I know.
Not everyone's here yet.
But, come, I'll show you around.
Felipe, thanks a lot
for everything you're doing.
You're helping me so much.
It's the least we can do for my brother.
And for us.
Come on in.
Well, this is Aitana.
She was a friend of Marcos,
a very special one.
- Hello.
- Hello.
I asked her to come and play the piano.
She's the only one up to the task.
Go ahead, we appreciate it.
[woman] She's gonna play.
[guests] Shh. Shh.
[playing beautiful piano melody]
[Felipe] Hey.
[piano melody continues]
[door opens]
[Ramón] What's up?
I want to work again.
I think it's for the best, Ramón.
[Ramón] Really?
Yes. I have a job.
I'm just waiting
for the company to relocate me.
[Ramón] Yeah.
Well, I'm worried about you.
You'll be going back and forth.
Maybe it's a bit too soon.
A bit too soon for what?
I need to do something.
I need to keep my mind busy.
You've already had yours busy
for nine years.
Where the hell did that come from?
I'm just saying, you know?
[door closes]
[piano melody continues]
- [door opens]
- [footsteps approach]
- [woman] I can't find the sugar.
- We're all out. Um, I
I didn't have time to go grocery shopping.
Why don't you come with us to Denia
for a few weeks, Blanca?
So you can get some rest.
There is no rest for this.
Especially knowing
that we could have prevented it.
Oh, don't put all that weight on yourself.
Blanca, please.
I didn't hear Lorenzo leave.
After the argument with Ramón,
I stayed awake waiting for him
to call me as soon he got to your house.
But I fell asleep.
Got to our house? What do you mean?
Ramón spent the night with you, right?
Uh, well, I don't know.
I'm mixing it all up.
- Anyway, think about it, okay?
- Mm-hm.
- [piano melody fading]
- [guests clapping]
Thank you. That was amazing.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
- [Aitana] Damn it, I missed two notes.
- [Felipe] Our ears are not that refined.
Aitana, this is Enrique.
He's helping us with the investigation.
You're very talented.
Hey, since you're here, do you mind
if I ask you a few questions about Marcos?
- Shall we?
- Sure.
[line ringing]
[nurse] What's up, handsome?
How are you doing?
Hey, Paqui. Well, baby steps.
It's like kindergarten all over again.
- [both chuckle]
- Your friend didn't come today?
- Not my friend, my boyfriend.
- Oh! That's great!
- [laughs]
- But which one? They're always together.
The dark-haired one
or the young, blue-eyed one?
The The dark-haired one.
Well, they're both very cute.
What can I say?
Do you have any straight friends?
I'm single and ready to mingle.
- [Germán] Mm-hm.
- Okay, I'll see you later.
- See you.
- [ominous music playing]
Were you two running away that night?
He had money and his passport.
He wanted to leave Madrid and so did I.
I see.
Do you know this girl?
Are you sure?
Weird, Felipe saw you
talking at the funeral.
[Felipe] You lied to me.
You told me you didn't go.
I'm sorry.
I just didn't want you to link me to her.
That girl was obsessed with Marcos.
When she found out we were together, she
she took it out on me.
She came to Spain right before his death.
- For how long did he know her?
- I don't know. He never told me.
Okay, one more thing.
Near the road where the body was found,
there's a workshop.
Someone told us
they saw a van in the area that night.
Did Natalia drive a van like this one?
["What He Wrote" by Laura Marling playing]
No. I don't know, I only saw her once.
Forgive me, Hera ♪
[Paqui] Hey, but which one?
They're always together.
The dark-haired one
or the young, blue-eyed one?
[Abel] Tell everything to Manu.
I know him.
- [Germán] Did something happen?
- [Abel] No, nothing.
- [melancholy song continues]
- He threw me away ♪
- [Germán] Why, have you spoken to anyone?
- [Manu] Who would I speak to?
[Felipe] Aitana! Damn it.
Aitana, wait! Come on!
Is that why you were with me?
You're a goddamn liar.
My feelings for you are real.
But I need to know
what happened to my brother.
That's what we all want.
But from now on, leave me alone.
The CT scan results are normal,
but you need to be under observation.
We should keep you here
for one or two more weeks.
Discharge me.
Right now.
- [melancholy song continues]
- So I asked him how he became this man ♪
How did he learn
To hold fruit in his hands? ♪
And where is the lamb
That gave you your name? ♪
He had to leave
Though I begged him to stay ♪
