[truck engine stops]
[truck door slams]
- [man] Good evening.
- Hey.
Fuck, yes! Go!
- Let's go!
- [truck engine starts]
Is anyone coming?
Nah. Assholes didn't notice a thing.
Whoa! This guy has a nice set-up.
- [line ringing]
- [sighs]
[phone rings]
- [man] Hey.
- Hey, man.
We picked up the pizza.
Okay. Is it warm?
Yeah, it's very warm.
I'll get some drinks and set the table.
Great, but let us know
if your cousins are coming over.
They eat so much,
there won't be anything left.
[man 2] Don't worry,
they're busy hanging their girlfriends.
Okay, perfect.
[alarm blaring]
[action music playing]
[man 1] Fuck!
[alarm continues blaring]
[man 1] Holy fuck!
[laughing] I love it.
[man 3] All right, let's get hamming.
[man 1] Fuck me, these hams are heavy!
[man 3] It's not the hams' fault,
you're just lazy!
- [sighs]
- [engine starts]
Close it. Close it.
[man 1] Come on!
Come on, Nando!
- [door slams]
- Hang on!
- Motherfucker.
- [car engine starts]
[siren wailing]
Get the fuck out. Water. Water, now.
[siren continues wailing]
[tires screeching]
[action music continues]
[man 4] What's he doing?
- [Nando] Come on, Fernan, let's go.
- I'm flooring it!
[tires squeal]
[Nando] Damn, Gitano.
There won't be any ham left.
- [glass shattering]
- [tires squealing]
[brakes screech]
[Nando] Fucking-A, he hit them!
- Hit the pigs with the ham!
- [man 1] Smashed the windshield!
[Fernan] Son of a bitch! Come on!
[police siren wailing]
[Nando] Fuck, they sent the cops after us!
To your right, careful. Go, go!
[man 1] Let's show those pigs
who's got the bigger dick!
[Fernan] Show them we have balls.
Or hams, Motos
[Nando] He's throwing crates.
- [Fernan] What is he throwing?
- Don't throw the hams out!
[tires screeching]
No! Don't throw the hams!
[Fernan] Would you fucking
shut up about the hams? Shit!
[brakes screeching]
[officer] Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Where are they?
- He tossed the hams!
- [Fernan] Come on!
- [Motos] That's my man! That's my man!
- It's what I do!
- You're an animal!
- [Nando] Stop, stop, slow down!
- [Fernan] No, no, no
- [Nando] Goddamn it.
[Fernan] Listen, if anyone asks,
we don't know anything
about ham or pig legs.
All we've got is cans of tuna, okay?
[siren chirps]
[police radio beeping]
[Fernan] Put your hands up.
Put your hands up.
[music fades]
[man] Um
Mr. Rogelio?
What is it?
Um, the ham job got busted.
They've all been arrested.
What now, boss?
What do you mean, "What now?"
Now nothing.
Let them rot, they're douchebags.
[Rogelio] Yes, these things happen.
No one lost anything.
Better luck next time.
[man on phone]
But I have to give them an answer.
I can't leave them high and dry.
I need to line up a shipment of hams.
Right, I'll take care of it.
I'll pay you back.
Yeah, sure. But when?
I will pay you back
as soon as possible. Okay?
[scoffs] All right, Mr. Rogelio.
[phone beeps off]
[door lock buzzes, opens]
[indistinct chattering]
[Motos] Shit.
What's up, baby?
That's all you got to say? "What's up?"
Tell me you didn't come
all this way to give me crap.
So for you it's normal
to end up in here over some hams?
Come on, those hams
Those fuckers cost an arm and a leg.
You're a dumbass. That's what's up.
Those hams were premium quality.
They were worth millions.
And can you guess who those hams were for?
Are you saying they were for my father?
Wait a minute.
Your father gave us the go-ahead.
Your father said he had a buyer.
And yet I'm here,
and those hams are out on the highway.
Fine, I'll post your bail.
For real?
You'll be out on Thursday.
Friday at the latest.
You serious?
- Tell your dad I'm grateful, okay?
- No, you're mistaken.
My dad's not getting you out.
And what do you mean by that?
I'm the one getting you out.
- Why would you do that for us?
- It's what Ángel would do.
[breathes deeply]
Ángel was like a brother to me.
You know, I keep wondering
why he had to be the one who crashed.
- I mean, if
- It was an accident.
Nothing more.
[melancholy music playing]
Thank you.
The daughter's involved.
When she became a widow, she started
orchestrating things.
We think it's for him.
Rogelio is the guy
who moves the stolen goods in Madrid.
Roma people aside.
Rogelio was already controlling
most of the market,
but working with Ángel
pushed him all the way to the top spot.
Duque, you've been
working on this for a while,
and still haven't found
any trace of stolen goods.
Because he doesn't store them.
And that's why it's a brilliant system.
The merchandise is stolen
after it's been sold.
Basically, he never holds it.
He organizes the robbery,
the guys carry it out,
and then he passes the goods
directly to the buyer.
And for the moment,
you can't prove any of it.
No. No, I can't.
No, you can't.
When you have actual proof
to convince a judge,
I'll be happy to listen.
[pats arm]
Well, don't worry about it.
Because very shortly we'll have something.
What are you talking about?
That some time soon
we'll have more information.
What do you mean? What information?
Like you said, I want to be
completely sure before I say anything.
Look, Duque, don't be coy with me.
What the fuck's happening?
Let's just say
we have someone on the inside.
With Rogelio?
It looks like one of the groups
he usually works with took the bait.
We just have to wait.
Very well.
Very well.
Keep me updated. Okay?
[soft instrumental music playing]
What is it? I don't have much time.
Fernan, what the hell are you doing?
You were supposed to get close to Rogelio,
but I don't see him anywhere.
I just need a bit more time.
There's no safety net.
If you fuck up, that's it.
I know.
- I'll go to jail.
- No one will save you.
Don't forget that,
officially, you don't exist.
Is that clear?
Been clear to me from the very beginning.
It's the kind of thing one tends
to forget when there's trouble.
Well, don't worry,
I can take care of myself.
[Duque sighs]
[indistinct conversation]
[door opening]
[woman] Shit.
Hey. Good morning.
[woman] Good morning. What's all this?
- Okay, but I didn't order anything.
- I was told to deliver them here.
Do you have an invoice or?
An invoice?
Oh, wait, I recognize you.
You work at the warehouse.
- With your father, Mr. Rogelio. Yes.
- Right, yeah.
- So, do I take them in?
- No. Put it back in the truck.
- I can't sell that here.
- But your father
No, I don't care.
Let me talk to him, okay?
Sure. Wait, wait, wait, stop. We're going.
- See you later.
- [man] See you.
[sighs] I can't believe this.
[soft instrumental music playing]
[inhales deeply]
[music intensifies]
[children yelling happily]
[upbeat music playing]
[woman 1] Quique, don't run!
You'll hurt yourself.
[chuckling] They're having a blast, huh?
[woman 1] It's great.
Excuse me. Hello, Sole.
Hi, sweetie.
- [woman 2] How are you?
- Good, and you?
- Good. Excuse us.
- No problem.
- I'll be right back. Thanks.
- Sure.
How are you?
All right.
I've been meaning to call for months.
But your dad said his lawyers
would take care of everything.
Right. I didn't want
to deal with any of it.
Anyway, you know what he's like.
Yes, I can imagine.
always the same.
I didn't want to push it.
And I didn't know how you were doing.
Lately, it's been nothing but problems.
It's like nothing is going right.
Not like before.
I see.
- Do you mean your business with Ángel?
- Mm-hmm.
- I mean, my dad helps out
- Mm-hmm.
but, I don't know.
I'd prefer to
- Do it yourself.
- Mm-hmm.
I mean, with your help.
- [laughs] With my help?
- Mm-hmm.
Pour me some wine.
What do you think?
- Well, I'll give it some thought.
- Really?
Mm-hmm. Obviously, I'd love to help you.
Actually, I have a little something
that could work for you.
- You have something, huh?
- Mm.
A capital investment.
To breathe new life into
all your money. Sound good?
[Sole] Pablo.
You remember Mercedes?
Hey, little man!
Happy birthday, Pablo.
Sole, there's a man asking for you.
I hope you like it.
- Hello.
- [woman 3] Hi. How are you?
Wow, look at that, another present!
How are you?
Fine, and you?
[Mercedes] Just admiring your grandson,
he's so handsome.
- How old are you now?
- [Pablo] Seven.
[Mercedes] Wow, seven years old.
Time flies!
- Sole?
- Yes.
Nice to meet you.
Sorry, I didn't know there was a party.
- Yes, it's my son's birthday.
- Right, that's what the lady said.
- My mother.
- Right.
And you are?
Um, Fernan. I'm Fernan, a friend of
Well, it doesn't matter.
I don't want to intrude
A friend of Ángel's?
You were involved in the ham job too.
Yeah, the ham job.
I wanted to thank you
for posting our bail and tell you that
You'll pay me back.
Uh, yes, of course.
I have it right here.
Actually, it's only half.
The rest, um, I'll have it in one week.
Two, at most. I promise.
You want to come in?
Have a drink.
Sure, but I, uh
It's your son's birthday.
I don't belong here.
So what?
Well, then, if you insist. Sure.
What's your poison?
Uh I'll have a beer, then, please.
[children yelling]
- I'll go get it. Make yourself at home.
- Wow, your house is amazing.
[pop music playing]
Pass me a beer.
I'm sorry, Sole, but we totally ran out.
We don't have any left.
- Really?
- Yup.
I'll order some.
So where did that guy come from?
What guy?
He's just a friend of Ángel's.
Hell of a friend.
That's one handsome friend there. Hmm?
- How many beers?
- A whole case.
Ladies, could you excuse us, please?
[woman 4] Of course.
- They're on their way.
- Great.
We ran out of beer.
- I see.
- [Sole] Mm.
Hey, can you tell me, please,
why these people are here?
- They're my friends, Dad.
- No, not them. The other one, the lawyer.
- Her name is Mercedes.
- I know her name.
What about the guy who just walked in?
Hmm? The one with "criminal"
written across his forehead.
[Sole sighs]
- Don't get mixed up with these people.
- She was your lawyer.
Yeah, but years ago,
when I was starting out.
Why do you think I let her go?
'Cause she's bad news.
[Sole sighs]
Don't get caught up in her racket.
You don't need that, Sole.
I'll make sure you and Pablo
have everything you need.
I know you will.
We still have to talk.
Should have done it a long time ago.
About what?
Ángel's money.
You mean my money. Ángel is dead.
Right, I know.
I mean the money you had put away.
- Right.
- You have to move it, Sole.
I have the contacts.
I know who to talk to.
- And I appreciate it.
- But?
But from now on
I want I want to do things my way.
Your way.
Okay. And what way is that?
Just because you were
involved in some of Ángel's deals
You know how these things work.
It's a tough business.
I'm a fast learner.
You can learn from me.
I'll teach you.
[children yelling happily]
Need help?
- That was fast.
- [Fernan] I'll take that.
Where should I leave them?
Over there, in the kitchen.
- That's for you.
- Thanks.
You're welcome.
["Saoko" by Rosalía playing]
[car horns honking]
Thank you, baby!
[song ends]
[soft music playing]
- [woman on bike] Hey!
- [indistinct conversations]
Hey there! Look who's come to the 'hood!
What's going on, baby?
- What's up? How are you?
- Hanging in there.
Nice to see you, girl!
- Did you pinch anything good yesterday?
- Just a few phones, that's it.
Yeah, but you get off on it, right?
You love burning them.
- I love it! [chuckles]
- Pyromaniac.
- Speaking of.
- What's up?
Look what I have for you.
No way.
Damn, girl, where the fuck
did you get this?
So, how much?
I thought it was a gift?
- In your dreams.
- God, that's disappointing.
Here you go.
- All right.
- Go on.
- What's this?
- For negotiating.
Negotiating with who? Your girlfriend?
Hey, don't talk shit to me.
I respect women.
Yeah, right.
Okay. Later, alligator.
After a while, crocodile.
Hey, Rosita! One more thing.
You know where to find me.
For a good time.
[Rosa chuckles]
[Rosa] Later!
["Mirándote" de RVFV playing on speakers]
[bottles clinking]
[people whooping]
[honks horn]
- Whoo!
- [Sole] Ladies.
[song continues]
[woman 1] Show me your boy.
- Here
- [woman gasps]
I can't believe how much cake
that kid can actually eat.
- Your mom looks so gorgeous.
- Yeah, she's with him tonight.
It's really nice
of your mother to babysit.
Hm. I've been cooped up for too long.
Knowing you, I bet you have
the whole evening planned out. Right?
Not really, but I know what I don't want.
To be so-and-so's daughter
or so-and-so's widow.
Of course you don't. You are yourself.
The one and only, Sole.
- That's right.
- Go on, take a swig.
Tequila, for real? You bought this?
Of course.
- One sip and we're off.
- [woman 2] But a big one.
[Sole] Fine.
[women laughing]
- [woman 1] Whoo!
- That's my girl!
- [giggling]
- I'm out of practice.
- [engine starts]
- Let's go, ladies.
Let's do this!
[all] Ladies' night!
[all whooping]
[song ends]
- What time is it?
- Too early.
Fuck, I don't know about you,
but the sun's been
shining on my face for hours.
Aw, shit, I gotta pick up the kid.
Relax, tell your mom
to take him to school.
If she could also go to my job for me.
No. No, I said I would pick him up.
Man, I can't go dressed like this.
Fine. Come up to mine quickly,
take a shower,
and I'll lend you some clothes.
No big deal.
Wait, hang on, you live up there?
Yes, I live up there.
You picked me up yesterday.
I mean, today. A while back.
So why did we sleep in the car, Yolanda?
Do you mind telling me?
Because of you.
Because you spent all night
talking about that stupid guy
- until we all fell asleep.
- Me?
- [Yolanda] Yes.
- So it's my fault?
- [Yolanda] Who else?
- You've got balls, girl. I swear.
- [Yolanda] Speak for yourself.
- I have a sore neck
- We stayed because of you.
- Would you two shut up?
We haven't had any coffee yet. Jesus
Start walking. There's coffee at my place.
Coffee? I need tequila.
My head hurts so bad.
- I swear I'll never drink again.
- Yeah, right. That's what you always say.
- [woman 2] Wait for me.
- [Yolanda laughs]
Last month,
I slept with a guy who works up there.
[Yolanda] Sure, and he
brought you up to show you
his office.
[all laughing]
- What office? He works in maintenance.
- [Yolanda] Imagine
[woman 2] But we did go up there.
You should see the views.
Yeah, the ones my building
used to have, damn it.
- [woman 2] From up there you can see
- Everything.
You're sky high.
All right, let's go to your place.
[all laughing]
- [Sole] Hey, what about your bag?
- [woman 2] Who cares, it'll turn up.
- [Yolanda] It'll turn up.
- [woman 2] It'll turn up.
[suspenseful music playing]
[dog whimpering]
Here it is.
That's all I have left.
- [Mercedes] How much is it?
- Eight hundred and seventy.
What about the money
you took from the Chinese?
We didn't get any.
They took everything
and they're still hounding me.
They're in front of every store,
driving down prices.
I had to use the cash I had
to make up for the losses.
- Shit, Sole.
- Yep. [sighs]
- I didn't know things were that bad.
- Hm.
Well, now you know.
Look, if you can't help, I get it.
Of course I'll help you.
Besides, there's still some money left.
I'm three months behind on rent.
And if I don't pay them,
I'll lose my store on Gran Vía.
No. No, do not pay that yet.
Don't worry, they won't close you down.
I'll take care of it.
- Are you sure?
- Of course.
Listen, right now we need to focus
on growing this money, okay?
[Sole] Mm.
And we'll make it happen.
Trust me.
I trust you.
[suspenseful music continues]
[cell phone vibrating]
[continues vibrating]
Who is this?
[Sole] Hello?
Who is this?
I'm calling my lawyer.
And if I find out this is the cops,
you're in deep shit.
You understand?
[Duque] Where is the money?
I don't know what you're talking about.
Sole, don't play dumb with me.
We've been following
the Chinese for a while.
We know they were expecting
two cases of money to launder today.
You and Ángel set this up
to keep it all yourselves,
but things went south.
So, do us a favor and start talking.
Don't I get a phone call?
[tense music playing]
[Duque sighs]
Hey, Estrella, you know who this is?
I need you to do something for me.
[tense music continues]
[gun shot]
[music stops]
[insects chirping faintly]
[contemplative percussive music playing]
[car horns honking]
[music continues]
[Mercedes] Thank you.
Good morning.
[Duque] I wasn't expecting you to drop by.
- What can I do for you?
- What are you doing with my cell phone?
- Excuse me?
- [Sole] You've been calling me.
Please, leave this to me.
Listen to me, my client
has been getting threatening calls
from a phone that's in your possession.
Oh? What phone?
Estrella's phone.
You guys had it.
The records show that the calls
started after Estrella was killed.
The police took her phone
with the rest of her belongings.
That's right, we found it in the car,
used it for the investigation,
and then we returned it to her mother.
Are we sure about that?
Absolutely. As it happens,
the mother died about six months later.
I have no idea where the phone is now.
You said you've been receiving threats?
And what kind of threats?
Do you recognize the voice?
- They just called, didn't say anything.
- They just called. Right.
I can see how you'd
take that as a major threat.
Excuse me. No, hang on a second.
What is this all about?
When we examined the phone,
a lot had been deleted.
However, we managed
to extract the call log.
Do you know where
the last call came from? Hmm?
This police station.
So, you're saying
someone called Estrella from here?
No, it wasn't us.
At the time of the call,
your client was in custody at this station
for robbing the Chinese mafia.
- Sole, no charges were filed, right?
- [Sole] No.
No, because the money
disappeared without a trace,
and the Chinese
didn't want to press charges.
I get it. It was dirty money.
But your client was held at this station,
and used her right to a phone call.
And she had the audacity to call Estrella
and ask her to pick up two cases
she had hidden in the Miguel Ángel Hotel.
Well, that's an opinion, not a fact.
If you hadn't called her,
she wouldn't be dead, and you know it.
No wonder you're worried.
Don't say anything. We're done here. Sole!
Did you go back to the nest
so that Daddy could protect you?
Better watch out,
your daddy's the most dangerous of all.
And now you want to work with him,
like you did with Ángel?
My advice is,
you shouldn't get too close to Rogelio,
because sooner or later
he'll end up in jail.
Know how I know?
'Cause I'll be the one locking him up.
I'm sorry, I should've come alone.
No, I wanted to see his face.
And now I know, he didn't make the call.
Don't worry about what he said, okay?
He's just blowing off steam.
He can't prove anything.
But he's right.
I need to get away from my dad.
He's too dangerous.
I can't depend on him.
You don't have to, Sole.
You have your own life.
You don't need him.
[sighs] I don't know.
With the Chinese screwing me
Haven't they done enough to me already?
[emotional music playing]
They killed Estrella.
And Ángel too, because if she were alive,
- Ángel would've never
- We can't know that, Sole.
We can't know that for sure.
What's done is done.
You have to stop thinking about it.
[siren wailing in distance]
Well, I can't.
That's why I can't sleep.
No pill can take away
the rage I feel inside.
Listen, sometimes you
have to just suck it up.
At least for the time being.
We'll play our cards right
and wait for our opportunity.
Vengeance is expensive, Sole.
It takes a lot of money
to stand up to some people.
[Sole] Mm.
Come on.
[city traffic sounds]
[vehicle accelerating]
[tense music playing]
[engine revving]
[tires screeching]
[glass shattering]
[alarm blaring]
[Fernan] Motos, go!
[action music playing]
[alarm continues blaring]
[Nando] Fucking hell.
- Guys!
- [Motos] What?
[Nando] Hey! Come here!
- [Motos] What is this?
- [Nando] Hurry!
[Motos] What?
Shit, we need to take that.
[Fernan] No, we don't
have time to open it.
[Motos] Come on!
We're running out of time.
- Come on, guys!
- Who cares? Let's take it
- [Fernan] There is no time!
- We'll open it later, man!
- I don't give a shit! We're taking this!
- [metal clanging]
- [grunting]
- [Motos] Come on!
- That's what Sole wants!
- Go!
- Go! Go!
- [Fernan] Just break it, damn it!
- [Motos] Come on! Get out!
- [Fernan] Get it out!
- [Gitano] These fucking guys
- [police siren approaching]
Hey, come on! We gotta go!
- [Gitano] Come on, hurry up!
- [Motos] Pull!
[Fernan] On the count of three.
[all] One, two, three!
Let's go!
[Fernan] Out! Out! Out!
[siren wailing]
[Fernan] Let's go.
[Motos] Let's go, dammit! Let's go!
- Fucking drive!
- [engine starts]
[tires screeching]
- [Gitano] Move it!
- [Motos] Faster! Faster!
[Gitano] Go, go, go!
- They're getting closer! Watch out!
- Go, go, go!
[tires squealing]
Come on! Go, go, go!
- Watch out!
- Ah!
[police tires screeching]
- [laughing]
- Take that, pigs!
Holy shit, take that!
- Come on!
- [all chattering excitedly]
- You believe it?
- How you like that?!
[suspenseful music playing]
Half of it now.
No. All of it now.
Just one thing.
In a week
they're taking half of what's in there.
Just in case it helps.
Ah, fuck.
So, what do you think, kid?
She is ham-tastic.
[music intensifies]
