En la boca del lobo

[siren wailing in distance]
[melancholy instrumental music playing]
[music continues]
[tires squealing]
[gun shot]
[glass shattering]
[music ends]
[car horns honking]
[tense music playing]
You okay?
I'm just tired.
[Mercedes] Look, there's Álvaro.
- [Álvaro] Hey there.
- Hello.
How are you?
- How are you?
- I'm good. Yeah.
- How was the trip?
- Good. A little long but good.
- [Sole] Good. You?
- Great.
This is Fernan.
- How are you?
- Nice to meet you.
Okay. Uh, shall we
check this and talk a moment?
- Give us a second?
- [Sole] Yes, of course.
[indistinct chatter]
What's wrong?
There are people over there
that I don't want to talk to.
They're Colombian.
- Do you owe them something?
- I went and fixed that mess for Poli.
- That's where they're from.
- Right, so what's the problem?
I don't like the people
they're talking to right now.
- [Fernan] The blonde?
- [Sole] Yes, the blonde. Carmen.
Jesus, Sole.
This is a fucking minefield.
That's done. Everything's
ready to sign tomorrow.
- [Sole] You're sure?
- I'm certain.
Well, if that's everything,
we can leave, right?
What do you mean, leave?
Don't you want to meet everyone else?
I think the less we know
about each other, the better.
- Hello.
- Hi, honey.
- Lovely to see you.
- Lovely to see you!
- Hi there. Mercedes. Pleasure.
- Hi.
- How are you?
- Fernan.
- Do you have a minute?
- Yes, of course.
Thank you. Excuse us.
- Pick up, come on. Come on, come on.
- [line ringing]
[beeps, disconnects]
Sole, call me back
when you get this message, okay?
Listen, I know
who killed my cousin Estrella.
I found a video.
And I really need to know if you know him.
Although I think I'm actually just gonna
go to the police now and report him.
Everything okay?
I don't know, is it?
I saw your face
while I was talking to Mateo.
- That's why I wanted to talk.
- [cell phone dings]
I didn't see him back in Madrid.
I didn't know Mateo was involved.
I brought them.
But don't worry. It's all okay.
What happened between us
stays between us. Period.
Thank you, Carmen.
Don't say thank you.
If Mateo finds out
what we did behind his back,
he'll chop off your head and my tits.
- [cell phone vibrating]
- One second.
- I need to take this.
- Okay.
What's up?
What the hell are you doing?
Is Fernan with you?
Yes, he's with me.
Okay, get rid of him
as soon as you can. Don't trust him.
There's this thing on his phone.
A hidden app or something!
Dad, did you hack it?
No, without a password there's
no way of knowing what's on there,
but I have a bad feeling about this, Sole.
I don't think he is who he says he is.
- No.
- Sole, trust me.
No, there's no way.
Okay. Even if he's clean,
when you go to sign,
the place will be covered with cops.
Even the DEA is involved.
You should never have
gotten on that fucking plane.
Dad, I won't be there for the signing.
Okay? I'm catching a 6:00 a.m. flight.
The idea was that it would
all be settled by the morning.
Right. Right, our friend
told me what you want.
Are you insane or what?
- I thought you agreed.
- To scare her. C'mon.
Sole, I wanted to scare her
to get her off our backs.
I didn't want you doing it, dammit!
You sound angry
What the hell do you expect?
I know how badly you wanted
to keep Mercedes away from me.
You had your reasons, right?
More than I could've imagined.
And now I know that we have
another family member.
What the hell are you talking about?
Listen, Dad, okay,
we'll talk when I'm back.
Sole, what are you doing?
- Sole, Sole, listen.
- [phone beeps off]
- [dial tone]
- [tense music playing]
[phone clicks]
[send alert chimes]
They're all there now.
Colombians too?
Yeah. Confirmed.
So, we have a problem.
The minister hasn't signed the order yet.
I bet they probably bribed him
to turn a blind eye.
- [man chuckles] You can be sure of that.
- So there's nothing we can do?
We still got one card to play.
But we gotta move quick. Come on.
So, listen, here's the scoop.
These two are
each other's enemy number one.
If we can get this guy to play ball,
we just might have a chance.
- What happens if he's been bought off?
- He's likely incorruptible.
As far as we know, he's never accepted
bribes from Western companies.
Doesn't matter.
The only thing that matters
is they hate each other's guts.
If he thinks putting a stop to this
will screw the other guy,
he won't give it a second thought.
[tense music continues]
[seabirds cawing]
[engine starting]
Who's the guy accompanying her?
A friend of her husband's.
The two of them met back in prison.
Oh, well, he sure did
get friendly with the widow.
Fernan is his name.
[horns honking]
[cell phone chimes]
[Rosa] Sole, please call me back
when you get this message, okay?
Listen, I know
who killed my cousin Estrella.
I found a video
And I really need to know if you know him.
Although I think I'm actually just gonna
go to the police now and report him.
[car horn honking]
[cell phone chimes]
[percussive music playing]
[rhythmic clapping]
- Are you coming?
- No, go ahead. I'm going to make a call.
[elevator beeps]
[cell phone ringing]
[Marta] Hi, Mom.
Hi, honey.
It's great to hear from you, honey.
How are you?
I can't stop thinking about it.
I want to No, I need to apologize.
And I need to be understanding.
Yes, I know.
If I were you, I can only imagine
what you must think of me.
I just don't understand.
I know, honey, but there's
nothing to understand.
It's my fault. I did this.
I messed up my life.
They laughed at me
when I said I always talked to you.
Like a best friend.
They said it wasn't normal,
but you know what?
I didn't care because
we always had each other.
And we do, honey.
For me, nothing has changed.
It has for me, Mom.
For me, it's over.
I don't know how it's fixed.
Of course, love, I get it.
Marta, listen, honey.
Rogelio doesn't know about you.
You never said anything?
Not even that you were pregnant?
I didn't want him
to make me get an abortion.
What? Like, he could have forced you?
Yes, Marta. Yes, he's very dangerous.
he was married, you know?
And I was in love with him.
So much.
[sighs] You can't imagine.
I don't know what to say, Mom.
I need to think on it.
You think, and
I don't know, call me
when you're ready. I'll be here.
Okay, honey?
[phone beeps off]
[emotional piano music playing]
[percussive music
playing faintly in distance]
[percussive music continues]
[indistinct chatter]
[Sole] Dad?
[Rogelio] Have you
thought about what I said?
You have to get out of this now.
If you can come back tonight, you should.
Ferrán killed Estrella.
Who the hell told you?
I just saw a video.
No, there's no way, Sole.
There is no video because
there is no way he would do that.
Okay. Wanna see it?
Sole, we shouldn't be
discussing this over the phone.
You knew about it, didn't you?
How would I know that?
Did you tell him to?
Sole, I gotta go.
So, what? You did it to protect me?
To save my marriage? Or for the money?
My love, do you think
I could do something like that?
I don't know, Dad.
I really don't. I swear.
[percussive music continues]
Hey, there. Did I scare you?
I didn't expect to run into you here.
We both had the same idea.
In any case,
these streets are pretty dangerous.
You should have asked
your friend to accompany you.
I'm going to the hotel.
Speaking of, I heard
that your friend also knew Ángel.
Yes, they were together in Valdemoro.
Yeah, I was actually there as well.
Fernan saved his life.
If it wasn't for him,
the other guy would've slashed his throat.
sure had some guts, as you people say.
But, well, the problem is
that Fernan isn't the one here.
I wanted to give you all the information,
so I made a few calls.
Fernan is still inside.
- Transferred to El Dueso.
- Oh, no way.
I've just spoken with him.
He sends you his regards.
[cell phone clicks]
[line ringing]
[Ferrán] Two gin and tonics.
[suspenseful music playing]
What's this urgent thing
you have to tell me?
Why the hell is there a video?
- A video?
- Don't play dumb, Ferrán.
Is there a video
of what happened at Hotel Miguel Ángel?
Come again? Why would there be a video?
Do you think I'm stupid?
I honestly don't know what's true.
First, you give my daughter a gun
and now there's a video.
Your daughter has
more balls than both of us.
[glass thuds]
She knows about you.
What you did to Estrella.
She knows it all.
When she's back,
she won't stop asking questions.
And you're worried?
That she'll find out
you knew about it all?
What the hell are you saying?
I told you about the cash. Right?
The rest was on you. You did it.
However, she might calm down a little
if she thinks her dad was actually
involved with it all, don't you think?
She doesn't want to screw you over.
I'm sure she would be quiet about it.
- That's the main option. Or
- What?
Don't touch my daughter.
Of course I wouldn't.
That's why you're going to play along
when I tell her that you and I
organized that thing together.
I'm heading out.
I need to talk to the chief in person.
It's really urgent.
[officer] Wait there. I'll get him
to come talk to you as soon as he's back.
Thank you.
[cell phone chimes]
[tense music playing]
- Let me take care of this.
- Reservation?
It's okay.
[man] Afternoon, minister.
You remember me, right?
It's all right. It's all right.
I need to call in that favor.
[cell phone vibrating]
- After you eat? Are you sure?
- Yes.
Thank you.
He'll sign, as soon
as he's finished eating.
Sole. Where were you?
I'm sorry. I needed a moment.
I've been calling your phone.
You've been gone forever,
and I was nervous.
Yeah, I lost track of time.
Oh, yeah?
What's this supposed to be?
Oh, now you're digging through my stuff?
No, I was packing.
- What for?
- Because we're leaving.
That's what you were
in such a hurry to tell me?
All that mystery with
the stuff you were taking care of
and you didn't want to tell me?
What are you planning on doing?
Use the trip
to get rid of Mercedes? Is that it?
God, this is fucking insane.
Look, I don't know what your plans are,
but we have to get out of here
Right, but why? Why are you worried?
The gun's not a good reason?
There's nothing else?
- What else is there?
- I don't know, but it seems like
It seems what?
Sole. We're talking.
- Sole!
- I have to go downstairs right now.
I need to meet Carmen. It's important.
Tomorrow you're getting arrested.
[emotional piano music playing]
After the signing.
[Sole] Hmm.
Mercedes sold you out.
She sold you out to save herself.
You knew about it?
- Since when?
- And you?
When did you find out?
Yes, it's what you're thinking.
It is how it looks, okay.
I'm so sorry, love.
[Sole scoffs]
[music fades]
[siren wails in distance]
[Marta] Are you sure? It was him?
Yes, the fucking scar and all.
A fucking policeman. The chief too!
So the other people there
don't know what he did?
I don't know.
I was gone by the time they told him.
I think it might be best
to listen to Sole. Wait for her.
- Damn it!
- What's wrong?
They have my details. I left my ID!
Okay, but this address isn't on it.
No! Not this one, but my mom's address is.
What if they look for me?
Okay, listen! It's all right.
Please, calm down.
- Come on, I have to go.
- Okay, but update me!
[tense music playing]
[engine starts]
Mom? Mom?
- Oh, my God.
- Oh!
Oh, what a surprise. [chuckles]
Why didn't you tell me
you were coming? Hmm?
Oh, honey. Mm.
Okay. You hungry?
- I'll put a steak on!
- [sighs]
Hmm? [chuckles]
I miss you so much. I love you.
Is that what you're trained for?
To get into bed with anyone,
like some man-whore?
I know you're hurt, Sole,
but everything I did,
I did to protect you.
- Do you wanna know how I feel right now?
- Sole
[yells] Very angry!
Do not cause trouble.
- Now you're worried about me.
- Yes, of course I'm worried about you.
And what? I just believe you, then?
I want you to get out of this. I don't
want anything to happen to you, dammit.
Think for a moment.
No, think for a moment.
Why would I do all this?
Why did I ask to leave together?
Because the Colombian is onto you.
Because Mateo knows Fernan.
The real one, not you.
They're coming for me.
We already arranged it.
When I leave the room.
Listen to me.
Let them do it.
No weapons.
- Sole
- Son of a bitch.
Son of a bitch!
[elevator dings]
[tense music continues]
He's in room 554.
Do the Colombians know?
Well, Mateo's already gone.
Jesus, the bastard didn't say anything.
We have to leave.
Yes, I've chartered a plane.
Tomorrow, in the morning.
That's too late.
If Mateo's already gone,
they'll be watching
every exit in the morning.
[clicks tongue]
We have, at most,
a couple of hours before they realize
their plan is starting to fail.
Isn't there anyone
you trust to get us out?
I can talk to someone.
I'll try to sort it.
I'll call you.
[celebratory percussive music playing]
[Mercedes] Is something wrong?
The police are onto us.
There's no way.
Are you certain?
What do we do?
Any ideas?
I don't know.
Who told you?
Could it have been one of your associates?
Jesus, Mercedes, you're unbelievable.
- Do you have a photo of Marta?
- Of Marta? Of course.
- Can I look?
- What for?
Let me see it, Mercedes.
She looks like him.
You can really see the resemblance.
Looks like my dad.
Don't you think?
Look, Sole, I don't know
why they told you,
but I'd like to explain to you. okay?
This is all you fucking care about, right?
Do you want to fight with me? Huh?
Neither you nor your father should
go near my daughter, you understand?
- Of course.
- Okay.
Just don't go back up to the room.
- Why not?
- Because the Colombians know what you did.
You're such a shit.
Don't make this worse
and make me regret it.
I don't understand what you're doing.
It's for Marta.
If I have a sister, I don't want
the first thing she knows about me
to be that I killed her mother.
[music continues]
[Fito] C'mon.
Jesus, they really messed
up your office, huh?
Yeah, Rosita. People are jealous.
But I'll show 'em, I promise.
- [Rosa] What's this?
- So I can see the bastard that did this.
I swear I'm gonna cut off his balls.
Take it.
What is this, dude?
Hold onto it.
If someone's after you,
don't get caught empty-handed, okay?
And trust me.
Don't worry about your mom, okay?
I'm gonna stick to her like fucking glue.
Rosita, c'mon.
I'm fucking worried about you.
Let's have a drink and calm you down.
- Okay.
- All right.
[engine revs]
[intense music playing]
- [Rosa grunts]
- Damn it!
[music continues]
[tense music playing]
I'm telling you, they
know about all of it, dammit!
[Duque] Are you sure?
You have to get me out of here, got it?
Listen, stay at the hotel, okay?
We'll come and get you.
[woman exclaims]
[breathing nervously]
Now, hotel, please, sir.
[horn honking]
Okay, listen.
The hotel is over there, okay?
[Rosa whimpering]
[metal clanking]
[Rosa grunts]
[tense music continues]
[tub bubbling]
[man grunts]
[Fernan groaning]
[Rosa gasps]
[coughs weakly]
[percussive music playing]
Please. Please, I need your help, sir.
I don't understand.
Those guys want to kill me.
- Those guys want to kill me.
- I don't understand.
- Help me.
- What the hell are you doing here?
Please, don't leave me.
Sole, please, don't leave me.
No, please. No, please.
Please, no.
[sobs softly]
Come on, damn it.
[music continues]
[Fernan grunts]
[Ferrán grunting]
[blows landing]
- [Rogelio grunts]
- [Ferrán wheezes]
[Rogelio breathing heavily]
[Fernan grunts]
[gun shots]
[Fernan gasps, coughs]
Sole! Watch out!
[Sole] Let's go, damn it!
[intense music playing]
[gun shot]
[shot echoes]
[music fades]
They'll be heading to the airport.
Let's go.
[cars honking]
To the airport, sir. To the airport. Okay?
How you know this guy's
taking us to the airport?
Because just trust me!
I talked to Carmen and sorted it out.
How do you know she's not tricking us?
Because I trust her.
Are you sure this is the only way out?
Only way. They wanna
get out of here, they gotta go by plane.
Come on. Come on.
- Okay.
- [honks]
[in Yoruba] Out of the way!
[music continues]
You can't pass in a tuk-tuk.
Either get out or turn back.
- [in English] Please.
- Please.
- We need to go to the airport, please.
- We
We must go, only to the airport, please.
Sir, please, she's pregnant.
- Please.
- Please.
[in Yoruba] Get out.
- [in English] Can we?
- [Sole] Let's move. Move. Hurry.
Thank you! Thank you, thank you!
[in Yoruba] Out the way!
[in English] Come on!
- We're two minutes away. Come on!
- [honks]
[tense music continues]
[airplane powering up]
