Ice Cream

1 No.
No, thanks.
You have it.
Or don't.
Whatever.
Is there something wrong with the ice cream? Eat the ice cream, Joel, before it melts.
I said for a cash transfer this size to be anonymous You said you said come back in an hour.
I have a plane to catch.
No, no, no, I said I would call you back - when the time comes.
- Look, Mr.
Padilla.
Padilla.
I'm a certified financial consultant.
- Do you know what that means? - No.
What we're talking about here is not very complicated.
You ever done this before? Well, it is common for Americans to come down here to Guatemala for this kind of transfer.
I don't believe it is legal in the U.
S.
Not true exactly.
We can do the transfer immediately, if you're willing to What's your commission, one percent? - 1.
75 percent.
- That's like $30,000.
30,625 Euros, not including the .
25 percent handling fee.
Great.
- Two hours.
- An hour and a half.
Fine, two hours.
Call me at the same number when you know it's ready.
You think Erica's really gonna show up? Before Milo threw it off the boat, did you see what was in the package? No.
Did he tell you what was in it? No.
Here we see an elephant separated from its herd, seemingly unaware that predators may be lurking nearby.
At some point, we'll have to assume your friends aren't coming.
I hope they don't.
Fuck them both.
You want to die, is that it? You say it like I have a choice.
They take half the money, they leave us.
You don't know that.
I mean, they could be trying to call us right now.
There's no phone service here No, I do know that.
I do know I've had a really, really shitty week.
And I literally don't have the energy to be scared, so What did you think of the ice cream? Rose hip, roses from the garden.
Great.
I'm trying to eat local.
You didn't have to call your friends, you know.
You could've chosen not to.
Whether they come or not, you'll either kill me or you won't.
Then you'll go after them or you won't.
I can't control any of it.
You must be curious, though.
Whether they care enough to come for you.
What do you think, one of them? All of them? Some of them? What happens if they don't come? I mean, what happens to you without the package and the money? Let me guess.
It's out of your control.
Hello.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
Where were they seen? Bye.
- Gotta go.
- No.
Work.
Sorry.
- I love you.
- I love you.
- Looks good.
There you go.
- Thank you.
That looks really good.
Yeah.
Did you see how they paid, though? That wasn't Belizean money.
That was a different color.
We're closer to the border.
Maybe it's Guatemalan.
Can't change that, man.
Too big.
You can keep the whole thing.
We just want some rice and beans and, you know, whatever else.
There's no banks around here, so we can't We're just really hungry.
Hey, you know Me brother, him just arrived from Belize city.
Yeah, he can give to you Belizean.
Yeah, then take your bill back up to B.
C.
, make for you change.
Hey, no problem, man.
Okay, well, I have someone who's who's coming to pick us up.
And, uh, she's definitely gonna have cash.
She's from here, but if not, I'll make change with him.
You'll get your money either way.
- Sit down, man.
I'll bring it to you.
- Thank you.

Good guy.

S.

Chicago? Obama.
Yeah, Obama.
All right, man.
So we're good.
Told him we got someone coming to pick us up who has cash.
He said he'll feed us.
Belizean hospitality.
People have been pretty nice.
Really nice apart from the ones trying to kill us.
Everybody else, though, is warm.
Here you go, guys.
- Thank you very much, sir.
- Appreciate that.
See, he didn't have to do that.
Mm, oh, yeah.
You get in touch with somebody back home that can look after your dad? Yeah, it's not something just anybody can help with.
Gotta be family member or something, right? He has trouble remembering people.
Not me yet, but I have no idea how long that's gonna last.
You could call your girls.
I don't think I'd be able to hold it together if I talked to them, and it's just not the way that I You know what I mean.
Erica.
Thank you so much.
Where are the others? It's just us.
Remember Lex? Thank you.
Hey, this your friend, man? Oh, she a lovely woman.
How come you no say that first thing? A lovely and she gonna pay our bill? What better than that? - Your brothers in the car? - Both of them.
Let's go.
Excuse us, please.
You know, maybe it better you leave the bag, then you go.
Then no problem.
Wait for us in the car, please.
We'll meet you outside.
Be careful.
Back your asses up! Hey, hey, hey.
Nine lives.
These people mine! - What the hell is this? - Out! Now! Motherfucker.
Gus, come on.
Drop the bags.
In! In! Tie their wrists behind their back! Now you, in front.
Back! - Get fucking back! - She's getting back! Excuse me.
Oh, sorry.
The fruit is amazing down here.
- I can't stop eating it.
- Yeah.
I hear the salami is great, too.
Yeah, you could take, uh, the boy out of Chicago I'm from San Diego.
I'm not sure what that means you take out of me.
Uh low humidity.
I'm Tabatha.
Oh.
I'm Michael.
I don't know.
I've just always wanted to see it.
Yeah, you know, I think I saw a TV special on that.
I watch a ton of stuff on NatGeo, which, after a while, gotta say kind of all blends together into one big shark, temple, monkey, alien show.
Well, if you do go, you will remember it.
Tikal is like the Angkor Wat of the Western Hemisphere.
I know, I know.
You know what, maybe I will go.
I should, right? So what are you doing here, Michael? - Business.
- Hmm.
A last bit of business, um, at least for a while.
I'm retiring.
I, uh, sold my company and, um, just doing some, like, last banking stuff.
- What's the business? - Real estate.
You're so young to be retiring.
Yeah, I could be younger.
I could be older, though.
- Either way, it's exciting.
- Yeah, it is.
It is.
You know, there were these friends that, uh, guys I knew in college, I was trying to get them involved in some things down here, and they wouldn't or couldn't.
I took the risk, and my life is bigger because of it.
There you go.
Now I can do anything I want.
Anything.
And what does your wife want to do? - My wife? - Um, just Oh.
She passed away two years ago, almost two years ago.
I don't know why I still wear it, but - I'm so sorry.
- Thanks.
Don't be.
It's just just one of those things.
Cancer.
Terrible.
Yeah.
- But, uh - I should be heading out.
Oh.
It was nice to Enjoy your retirement, Michael.
Thank you.
Would you like some news? Two of your pals are on their way.
And assuming they have all the money, you might even get to go home.
What is home for you? What do we do for a living? We teach.
Those who can't.
Whatever made you choose to be a teacher? What made you choose to be a drug dealer? When I was 20, I backpacked around Lebanon.
I met a girl from the Becca Valley.
Roses grew like weeds by the roadside, and so did hashish.
Beginning of a marvelous career.
Took me around the world.
Now you work for Jesús.
No.
No, no.
Self-employed.
And Milo? I was an investor in his company.
He was a place to put your money.
He was okay with that? He saw it for what it was, an opportunity.
Before I left Lebanon, the U.
S.
started something they called the pro-dairy intervention.
They burned the hashish fields and provided local farmers with cows.
Pennsylvania milking cows.
So I was left with a choice.
Find new suppliers, diversify, take on more risk or export cheese.
Is that supposed to impress me? Well, maybe it fucking should.
Because at the end of the day, that's the difference between you and me and for that matter, between you and Milo.
You chose cheese.
Lex and Gus are on their way.
Erica, we're not bad people.
We're not.
My problem is I love the Bee Gees too much.
What? How many Bee Gees dead? I'm sorry, how many Bee Gees are dead? Robin, yes.
Barry? - Man, fuck your Bee Gees! - Fuck my Bee Gees? No, no.
We all love the Bee Gees.
Robin is dead, yes, and Maurice, I think.
There's a Maurice in the Bee Gees? Yes.
What is it? Fuck.
What's going on? - Him going to kill my grandmother.
- What? She came to the bar with me.
She stayed in the car.
- Come on! Get off me! - Leave him! Come on! Lex, come on! Lex! - No! - Fuck! - No, stop the car! - No! Stop the fucking car! Rochelle Baer No, no! Turn around! Are you mad? Him have a gun! - We have to, please.
- A knife is under the seat.
Listen, please, we got to go back.
If we go back, he will kill us.
If we don't go back, he kills Lex.
- Please, turn around.
- Look, we're not going back, Gus.
- I'm sorry, but we're not! - Stop the car! Let me out! - Gus.
- Stop the fucking car! I'm sorry.
Thank you for your help! Thank you.
I am so sorry.
- I'll trade the money for Lex.
- Trade? No.
He'll just kill you and take the money.
- But I have to try.
- Why? No! No! Who was she? Where are they going? I don't know.
I-I-I don't know.
Ah, okay.
- Her name is is Erica.
- Last name? - I don't know her last name.
- Where are they going? I don't know.
Where are they going?! Where are they going?! Where are they going?! Where are they going?! - Where are they going?! - Okay, okay, okay.
I know where she lives.
Okay, I'll take you there.
You have one new message.
Gus, this is Joel.
I've been been kidnapped.
I'm not joking.
They, uh they want the money, all of it, or they're gonna kill me.
Please call me back if you get this.
Come on, pound my fucking pussy! Uh-huh! Uh! Hello.
Are we ready? Cobi.
It's Gus.
Gus? So you're okay.
Good shit, man, I I thought that Where are you? Uh, yeah, I'm okay.
Fuck! Hold on.
Are you okay? Joel got kidnapped.
Someone got him.
Kidnapped? By who, Jesús? I don't I don't know.
I-I just picked up a message from him.
He said that if we didn't return the money, all of it, that they-they they were going to kill him.
All the money? But we Where the fuck did you guys go? Oh, well, Joel, uh, he wasn't there when I got out.
Uh, are you with Lex? The Cat got Lex.
- The Cat? - I got away.
Lex didn't.
- From the Cat? - Yeah.
How do you know it's the Cat? 'Cause he's a f Listen to me, we have to link up and deal with this shit right now or they're going to kill him! Now, I am on a road leading from where we were quarantined.
It can't be more than, like, ten Wait a minute, there's a mile marker.
Cobi? Cobi, can you hear me? Yeah, yeah, I hear you.
But, look, what do we know for sure? Cobi, where are you? Okay.
I'm not far.
I'll call you when I'm near.
Just stay where you are.
¿Hola? ¿Habla inglés? The woman from the embassy, the Southern coast road, uh, there's a-a ruined house near the Guatemalan border, about one mile past the San Pedro turnoff.
Uh, she she fell.
Well, the transfer has been executed.
Yes, thank you.
Great work.
But now I need it transferred back to me now.
I see.
Well, Mr.
Franklin, as a professional accountant Financial consultant, wealth management.
So you understand that this will also require time and that we will have to charge you the standard 1.
75 transfer commission.
And the handling fee, .
25 percent.
Don't forget about that.
That's 4,200 Euros.
Yes, that as well.
Except I'm not gonna pay it.
The fee or the commission.
Why would the guy who you just completed an illegal transfer for And by the way, you are correct, it is highly illegal.
Why is he now threatening to report your bank and you personally to the U.
S.
Securities and Exchange Commission, which, along with the DEA, is investigating your bank for anonymous cash transfers? Now, the SEC, they only have jurisdiction in the United States.
The DEA, they're like the fucking Marines with accountants.
I'll get your money right away, no fee.
I need the actual original cash, Euros, 500s and the original commission.
But the commission comes from the bank.
That part will have to be wired to you later.
- How long? - 24 hours.
Okay.
Only 'cause we're friends.
Well, it shouldn't be long before at least two of your pals appear.
Isn't that touching? Yeah, lucky me.
- Oh, so you believe in luck.
- Luck is chance.
Chance is math.
I believe in math.
Don't tell me you're a maths teacher.
I teach teachers.
I teach teaching methods.
Christ.
What did Milo see in you? At least he tried to grab life by the balls.
I guess a shared history counts for something.
We went back a long way.
Enough to get you mixed up in all this.
Enough to leave me his villa.
What? Well, just a quarter share.
I don't think so.
He showed us his will.
That villa's not his to leave anyone.
It's mine.
Well, I saw the title deed, so I'd have to say not anymore.
Then I guess if you work in high-end real estate in Belize and you're the type of person who grabs opportunities by the balls, you'd know how to do that kind of thing.
If that's true, none of you are going home.
I'm sorry.
It was nighttime when we were here.
All these streets look alike.
She lived down a small street? An alley, yeah.
This neighborhood is filthy.
These people are dogs.
It's harder to kill a dog than a person.
But these people are dogs.
Look! Where is it? Keep looking.
Maybe a different street.
What do you want me to say, huh? You said you know where she lived.
I was here once, and it was nighttime.
It was dark.
This isn't the street.
Then we need to be straight on what we say or we both die.
There was just him when I got there.
In.
And the money? - He says it's with the others.
- The other two? Yeah, we split the money between us.
So where's your share? My friend took it.
I gave it to him.
I didn't want it.
Another honest man, who'd have believed it? The black one has it.
He's probably out of Belize by now.
That's what we were all trying to do.
That's all he knows.
And the fourth? - Cobi? - I don't know where he is.
So two of them with three quarters of the money are still missing.
Yeah.
Why wouldn't you lot have just stuck to-fucking-gether? Lots of reasons.
Lex.
Jesus Christ.
Are you all right? Could be worse.
You? You know Gus and Cobi? Gus got away.
Uh, no clue about Cobi.
Did you, uh, did you wait for us when you got out? No.
Where are we? Who is this guy? He's a drug dealer.
Says he doesn't work for Jesús and that Milo was laundering money for him.
So what now? If he offers you ice cream, take it.
- Where's your money? - It's gone.
But you got yours.
Gone? Yeah, I got mine.
What do you mean, gone? You mean Lex has it? It got stolen.
So your money and his money are not with you or him? The Cat came back.
I am lucky that I even got away.
Okay, where did you go? Gus, we need that money to get Lex and Joel.
That's what you said, right, isn't it? That if we don't bring the money, all the money, they're gonna they're gonna kill them.
Isn't that what you said? Right? And so now we only have half the money and you didn't even think about telling me this? Where did you go? I'm here now with the only money we have.
Are you gonna answer my fucking question or not? - Fuck! - Hey! We have to figure this out.
We have to, right? Uh-huh.
Do you know where the money is, and is it possible to get it back before we have to go to Plan B? What is Plan B? I have no fucking clue.
This is good.
Rose hip.
What's a rose hip? Assuming they got Joel with his share plus your quarter, we're only short half the money.
Only short half.
Dude, we can't show up there with only half.
Then what are we supposed to do? If we go there without all of the money, all of us are going to be killed.
All of us.
We have to run.
Fuck.
What I'm saying sucks.
I know.
But I'm right about this.
Man, you're a fucking joke.
I am not a joke! You're a fucking joke! You better hope we die, man.
Come on.
It's gonna be real awkward, uncomfortable seeing you around back home.
Do what you want.
Be who you are, Cobi.
Here, here.
Thank you.
Appreciate it.
Um, would you mind waiting for a few minutes? Thanks, asshole.
That is not all the money.
- The embassy has it.
- Listen, we-we We gave the rest to a woman at the embassy.
- The U.
S.
embassy? - Yeah.
- What's her name? - Rochelle.
Rochelle.
Last name.
Baer.
Rochelle Baer.
If she doesn't hear from us at the top of the hour, she's gonna come looking for us and you, here, armed.
Ooh.
We only reported half of the money because we were gonna keep the other half ourselves.
Good for you.
So how about this? Go ahead and keep that and let all of us go.
We'll tell her that Joel and Lex found us before we found them.
And they'll say that Jesús did it.
You'll have half the money, no problems with the embassy.
And you get to stay alive.
That okay with you, Joel? Hey, come here.
See this pond? Where do you think the fish come from? - Hmm? - Me, neither.
We'll get you the money.
It was an accident.
It was a mistake! Cobi.
Where's the rest of the money? Shoot one of them.
