Omniscient (2020) s01e04 Episode Script

Who wants to dive in first?

A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES - Daniel! - Daniel! - Daniel, please! - Daniel! Here! Just one question! - Daniel! - Daniel Are you recording? Before answering any questions, I'd like to make a statement.
What I said about my father's death, accusing Omniscient and the government, was a lie.
- What? But, Daniel - Daniel, Daniel! So, you don't suspect there might be a conspiracy? - That's right.
- Why did you lie to me, then? Uh I'm devastated about the whole thing.
I'm just trying to cope with it.
I jumped the gun.
Those were serious accusations, Daniel.
Didn't you consider the consequences? Why are you taking it back now? I came here to publicly say, on behalf of my family, that I'm sorry.
And to reaffirm that I make no accusations against Omniscient or the city hall.
Why should we believe you're telling the truth now? What did you intend by doing that? Indemnity, considering your juvenile record? Fuck you all.
- Daniel! - Daniel! One more question! - Daniel! - Daniel! You could've told me about your plan before.
You just couldn't trust me, could you? Dani, how You'd better make this shit work now.
I'm not sure you're getting my messages.
Just wanted to see how you're doing.
I have some news I want to share with you.
Call me whenever you can.
Love you.
Good morning.
Good morning.
Nina, have you changed line 102? - Not yet, but I'm on it.
- Okay.
It's important to get it done before the councillor's delegation adds the new law in the Additional Law Computer.
Jaque, just out of curiosity, do you know why the Law Computer is separated from the Main Computer? Just for security reasons, really.
The ALC translates our language to the Main Computer.
So, it doesn't run in QLC? These machines ignore us.
They only talk to one another.
Nina? The Main Computer doesn't understand our language.
What? It uses its own language.
Uh Come, let's have a seat.
The hacking device I designed won't work.
Why not? Because my device speaks one language and the Main Computer speaks another.
With the board I stole, I tried to create something the computer would see as part of its body, as an extension of its structure.
But this extension speaks a different language.
I'll have to translate my device.
And you didn't consider this before? No, because I didn't know.
I just found out about it.
Do you know the ALC, the Additional Law Computer? Well, that's the one that communicates with the Main Computer.
They speak the same language, and it translates our language.
And do you have access to it? Look.
This is a data transmitter.
I need to attach it to the ALC while it is operating and translating.
And you're the only one who can do it.
I am? Next week, a delegation is scheduled to add a new law to the System.
There's always someone from city hall at this event.
No, Nina.
Are you asking me to go to the company where you work and take such a risk? They won't give me access.
I'm not in the Security Department, and just yesterday, I was a trainee.
I need you, Judite.
- Only you can do it.
- No.
I can't do it.
What about my drone? That's not a crime.
It's like sticking a flash drive into a computer.
Only in this case, you can't let people see you're doing it.
The fact that the drone doesn't recognize it as a crime doesn't mean it isn't a crime.
Nina, what you're asking of me is just too much.
First my brother, now you.
I'm all by myself.
This delegation I'll try.
I'll try, Nina.
I won't make any promises.
Nina! Nina.
Are you okay? I was thinking we could go out this weekend.
Some drinks, maybe? Actually, I just want to see you.
Not casually on some random day I want us to see each other, like on a real date.
And more often.
It still has to go through some recognition tests, but it's already a huge step.
I couldn't believe it.
I keep thinking one day we'll be able to use it outside Omniscient, and expand our work Hey.
Hi? Are you still here? - Yes, sorry.
I'm just - I apologize.
- I'm boring you with this work stuff.
- No, I'm feeling a bit No worries.
Here's an idea, let's make a deal.
For the next 24 hours, we're not allowed to talk about work.
- Deal.
- Deal? Deal.
Now I get it.
It's so good! Five days in Omniscient's cafeteria wouldn't add up to this pastry's filling.
- That's one-nil to me.
- One-nil? Why? You've mentioned work.
- No, I said "cafeteria".
- Which is at Omniscient.
Work, work, work, work Mm.
Sorry, I fell asleep.
No, you didn't.
You passed out.
Is this your mom? Yes.
The most incredible person I know in this world.
- Do you have any siblings? - No.
It's just my mom and me.
What about your dad? We're not so close.
I wasn't sure I should ask you about your brother's article But are you okay? You seem a little off.
I just want to get my life back to normal.
Of course.
How inconsiderate of him to expose you like that.
Water? I'm sure people at Omniscient know you have nothing to do with your brother's shitty business.
You don't know my brother.
You're right.
I'm sorry.
I'm I'm tired.
I haven't been getting much sleep.
Would you like me to help you sleep better? - No, thanks.
Stop it.
- Just a little.
Silly man.
Dani, are you okay? Do you need anything? I'm worried about you.
Where are you staying? Again? Look, Dan.
You know I'm trying to help, but you can't stay here.
Why don't you talk to your sister, or a friend? Or whatever.
Sorry, bro.
I will.
Vinícius! I have good news for you.
- Remember that deal in Hong Kong? - Sure.
- I managed to put your name on the list.
- To be part of the team? - Exactly.
- Wow, that's wonderful! Yeah, but don't thank me just yet.
They will contact you.
And I really need you there, because I think you'd be a great System Implementation Coordinator.
- Thank you.
- Don't mention it.
But please work on that Cantonese.
That's great.
Good afternoon, Mr.
Good afternoon.
I know this is not your department, but do you know that new law delegation? - The Community Garden? - Exactly.
Do you think there's still an open spot for me to join it? I don't think so.
But why the interest in such a boring subject? This is for politicians.
Well, I didn't mean to rush things, but You, Judite? Running for office? Who would've guessed? Okay.
I'll see what I can do.
So, today is your bike debut day? Yeah, surprisingly, someone convinced me.
I need to tell you something, Nina.
Don't say it.
If you can't ride a bike, it's all over between us.
- That's not it.
No, I mean it.
- What? You asked me the other day, but I wasn't ready to tell you.
About my father.
He's in jail.
My mother and I had no idea what he was doing until he got caught.
He was convicted of kidnapping.
- What is his name? - Jorge.
- You must have heard of him when you - I interviewed your father.
- He even told me some stuff about - I don't care.
I don't want to know.
That's not why I'm telling you this.
I just thought you should know.
To be honest, I never talk about this with anyone.
I'm afraid people will end up thinking I'm just like him.
Don't even think of it.
That's ridiculous.
I just want you to feel free to tell me anything you want.
Are you okay? My brother left home.
And I'm having that insomnia I told you about.
Anyway If you'd like, there's this place I go to when I feel stressed out and tense like that.
- What place? - Well I'll take you there someday.
- Why the mystery? - I think you'll like it.
- Does this place have a name? - It's a group.
A group? We can go next Thursday, if you want.
Come and get me! So? Did you get it? Hi, Nina.
How are you? I'm fine.
Thanks for asking.
Sorry, Judite.
Did you get it? Are you sure the drone won't catch me? I'm positive.
Look, I'm putting my name, my career and, God forbid, my freedom at risk.
- Do you understand? - I do.
Trust me.
So let's get this over with, because I have to join a delegation.
Here's everything you need to know.
On that day, the delegation will arrive early in the morning at Omniscient.
The delegation is comprised of the city councillor who wrote the bill, legislature lawyers, two civil society representatives, someone from the press and someone from city hall, you.
You'll take the transmitter with you.
Put it in your pocket.
Inside, you will probably be greeted either by Carolinaor Henrique.
Please follow me.
Judite it's really important that you look calm.
- My pleasure.
- We're happy to You don't want people to be suspicious of you.
After that, you'll go to the 12th floor.
The focus is on the importance of your law.
Before you enter the room, they'll ask for your cellphone.
There's a lot of technology behind these walls.
Once inside, you'll recognize the gate that keeps the ALC.
ALC - Henrique.
- Excuse me for a moment.
When the gate is open, stay alert, because it's gonna be really quick.
What about you? WEAK SIGNAL In the meantime, I'll be somewhere in the building, trying to be as close as possible to the transmitter to get the signal and transfer the data.
You will have to attach this here.
Wait for the law to be added, remove the transmitter, and that's it.
- That's it? - I'd like to thank all of you for the virtually unanimous vote on the law we fondly called "Community Garden Law," which establishes that every citizen has the right to grow and harvest crops in the city's public areas, respecting, however, the land areas designated by the government.
Should I read it now? - Yes, come with me.
- Okay.
You're going to say what the new law is.
The audio will be captured and transformed into a code, which will be promptly processed by the computer.
Then the System will format itself automatically.
Let's just wait for Vinícius' okay when we'll be ready to start.
You're from the city hall, right? - Mm-hmm.
I thought Sergio would be coming today.
Do you know if you guys need a press agent there? No.
Nina? What are you doing here? I am running errands for Débora.
Mind if I walk with you? We haven't spoken since the promotion.
Actually, I'm in a bit of a hurry.
Then we should get going.
Things have been crazy in here lately.
I don't know about Débora, but Vinícius is so demanding I need to go to the restroom.
Talk to you later.
- I can wait for you.
- Don't worry.
You can go.
May I start? Yes, you may.
Don't be nervous.
No pictures now, please.
Is that okay? Let's do this.
As deliberated and approved by São Paulo's State Legislature, we initiate the process of adding law number 13,967, regarding the use of public spaces for collaborative cropping.
This law allows the city's areas As deliberated and approved by São Paulo's State Legislature we initiate the process of adding law number 13,967, regarding the use of public spaces designated for recreation and organic agriculture in community gardens.
SIGNAL FOUND DATA TRANSFER INITIATED At last, this law comes into effect immediately, according to the protocol jointly established by the city hall and the security company Omniscient System.
- Is that it? - That's it.
Okay, now you can take pictures.
Come, Antônio.
Marcela will be next to me.
Come, Judite.
Oh, no I'm good.
Could you please not touch it? - I'm sorry.
- Thank you.
The Secretary wants you in the picture.
Come here.
Okay, we're ready.
- Good.
- Let's go.
Thank you.
Thank you.
- Madam Councillor.
- Thank you.
Now we must leave the room.
- Are you coming? - Of course.
It worked! I've got everything I needed.
What's wrong? You'll have to go back there.
What? I wasn't able to finish what we agreed.
That thing is still there! You gotta go back.
It's okay, I got everything I needed.
We don't have to do anything else.
I'm exposed! That thing can't be in there.
But it's riskier if we go back there now.
My life is at stake! Those are my fingerprints! Don't you understand? Listen to me, it's a very small device.
The computer is inside a wall, with no access.
Going back may draw attention to something they wouldn't notice otherwise.
Nina, this is a security company! They're going to find out sooner or later, don't you think? Or you don't think they'll get to you after they get to me? I can't get in there.
I would tell you if I could.
Trust me.
They will not get to you.
You asked for my help.
I did this for you.
Judite, I'm truly grateful.
But you just can't see that the best thing to do now is nothing.
You're not who I thought you were.
Nina! Nina! Are you ready? Did you forget? - I was about to go grab my things.
- The place.
- You forgot.
- No, I'll go grab my - The place we were going! - Wait for me.
I'll be right back.
- Let's go? - Yes.
Are you ready for this? - I went to that beach you recommended.
- Did you see - diving deep into yourself.
- Was it early in the morning? Yes, early in the morning.
We Good evening, Manu.
- Good evening, Antonio.
- Hi.
- This is Nina.
- Hi.
- How are you? - Welcome, Nina.
- Thanks.
- How are you? - You guys, it's time.
- Yes.
- Let's go.
- Come on.
Now, the eyes are relaxed.
They close and the whole body opens up.
You can stretch your legs your arms and soon the sounds start to emerge from everywhere.
That's it.
Allow the sounds to flow through your whole body.
I am here only as a messenger, to remind myself and all of us that nothing stays here forever.
Following this rhythm, who wants to dive in first? It's Nina, right? Yeah, but No, I don't wanna go first.
- No? - I'll go first.
Then you go.
All right.
Take a deep breath, Vinícius.
We are back in those woods.
Do you recall the smell of the wet grass? The sound of the cicadas? So, dive deep and tell me what you see.
I am walking along the trail.
The soil is fresh.
Very good.
Keep going.
Can you see the clearing? Yes.
I'm heading there.
I don't want to anymore.
Why not? Someone will be there waiting for me.
And I don't want to go.
You went elsewhere.
Where are you? In the backyard of my house.
Who's there? You can talk to me.
She's always crying.
Every time I get in there, she's crying.
Then she tries to hide it and starts cooking.
Do you feel like hugging her, Vinícius? I do.
Come back to us now.
I'd rather not do this.
No one will force you.
But I promise you I'm feeling much lighter now.
It's worth a try.
You can come, Nina.
These waves will help you relax.
That's all.
The perfect brainwave frequency.
Nina take us to your place.
What place? The first that comes to mind.
- I'm in space.
- Is it cold as they say? No.
It's just like here.
Are you walking? Yes.
I'm arriving home.
But my house is empty.
The Omniscient's statue is in my living room.
I'm trying to reach for my dad, but I keep going back to the front door.
I go back to the same place.
Breathe, Nina.
This is weird.
I think I'd rather I wanna get out of here.
You don't need to rush.
Dad? Dad? Dad? Dad! Dad, Dad! Dad, Dad, Dad! Dad! I'm a little confused.
Wait Daniel? Daniel! Daniel.
Daniel, I'm sorry.
Everything I'm doing is is for Dad.
You know that, right? Olí? No! I'm sorry! Please! Please, forgive me! No, I didn't want this Olívia, don't - I'm sorry.
- Let's come back now.
- Emerge.
- Olívia, don't I'm sorry! Don't! Please, don't! Please, that's enough! I don't want this anymore.
Please! Please.
No, no, no, no, no, no Emerge, now.
No, no No, no, no, no, no No, get me out of here.
No, no, no, no, no Yeah, I think I'm getting closer with every session.
You're getting deeper into your questions - Exactly.
- Viní.
- Excuse me.
- I'm sorry.
Did I interrupt? No.
Excuse me.
Uh, I think I'm going home.
Aren't you gonna wait until the end? I thought we could stay at my place.
No, I should go home.
What is it, Nina? You seem strange.
- Don't worry about what you said earlier.
- What did I say? Nothing out of the ordinary.
Are you okay? Yeah, I'm okay.
I just want to go home, all right? Bye.
Talk to you later.
Judite, forget what I said.
What happened is my responsibility, and I'll find a way to fix this.
I promise.
I just wanted to tell you not to worry because I have this new hobby, you know? Woodworking, and I'm getting better at it.
If I practice for two more weeks, I - Hi.
- Hey.
Am I interrupting? No.
I just dropped by to see how you're doing.
You're not picking up my calls.
You vanished.
Everything's fine.
Nina, I'll get to the point.
I know exactly the kind of relationship I want.
What about you? Have you thought about it? Huh? Just so you know, I was considering declining that job in Hong Kong, - so I could - You've made it onto the team? Wow.
Congratulations! Does it even occur to you that I'll move to another continent and be away for, like, two years? I'm sorry, but this thing you just told me is incredible.
You can't expect me to react otherwise.
Listen to yourself.
Okay, I get it.
I'll let you finish hanging your frames.
- We'll talk later.
- No, wait.
I'd love to, but I can't.
Gotta wake up early for work.
Carolina wants some extra reports on ALC.
See you later.
No, wait.
So, you'll have to add the new law all over again tomorrow? No, she thinks there was some unusual data movement going on.
It's probably nothing.
Judite, forget about those two weeks.
It has to be tomorrow.
First thing.
- Hey! Did you fall out of bed? Yeah, long day.
Is Nina already here? It's a little early for her.
Maybe in an hour or so.
Do you have a love letter for her? No.
I'll talk to her later.
- Have a good day.
- You too.
Before you say anything you can put it in one of those empty frames you have at home.
That's sweet.
- Débora asked me to be here earlier - Débora? Yeah, I really gotta go.
Talk to you later, okay? Okay.
ALC I'm sorry I couldn't help you earlier.
Thank you.
I'm also sorry for the things I said to you.
I'm almost there.
The defragmentation day is coming.
I'm really close to getting the footage.
Data volume slightly over the limit.
ALC REGISTERED ACCESS LAST MONTH Access to authorized personnel only.
Hi, Nina.
I'm fine.
Crashing at a friend's.
No need to worry.
If you need anything, let me know.
I just dropped by to see how you are.
- Am I interrupting something? - No.
Hi, Débora.
Is Nina already here? It's a little early for her.
Maybe in an hour or so.
Débora asked me to be here earlier Débora? Yeah, I really gotta go.
You can put it inside one of those empty frames you have at home.
That's sweet.
So, you'll have to add the new law all over again tomorrow? Daniel, I'm sorry.
All I did was for our dad.
I swear.
