The Five Juanas (2021) s01e16 Episode Script

The Package

What are you doing?
I need to get out of the house.
Where are you going?
Caridad, you need to be careful.
You all do.
[suspenseful music playing]
- [Miguel] How are you?
- [Bautista] Better.
[Miguel] Ready?
Bautista with a guy?
But she doesn't have a boyfriend.
[Manuela] Good for her.
About time.
It might be one of those romances
you don't tell anyone about.
[Matilde] Honestly, it'll be good for her.
She needed some space.
She's been so paranoid the last few days.
I'm not sure.
She said goodbye
like she never wants to see us again.
But no one seems to care around here.
[Matilde] Eighteen
[vocal dance music playing on car stereo]
[Miguel] Your sister won't stop calling.
Yeah, and I don't want to have to explain.
[Bautista laughs]
Where are we going?
Wherever the road takes us.
You're so tense, Miss Mai.
Mr. Andrade, it's barely noon.
Ah. In Spain, it's already 6:00 p.m.
- No?
- [Bautista laughs]
[Bautista stifles cough]
- That's strong.
- [Miguel laughs]
[suspenseful music playing]
[moans] Miguel.
[Miguel] I'm done.
She was asleep when I handed her over.
If anyone asks,
you just came for a political event,
and you left her at the airport, okay?
[suspenseful music continues]
Where am I?
[Miguel] What will you do to her?
None of your business, Cabrilla.
- [Caridad] Hello, Víctor.
- Good morning.
What's that?
Uh, just some tools
that were taking up space in the shed.
Do you need a ride to the convent?
No, I'm going downtown.
Thanks. Have a nice day.
[Víctor] You too.
[tense music playing]
She just left the house.
All right.
[tense music continues]
[tense music continues]
[Ignacio] I remember Mom
really didn't like tobacco smoke.
[Rogelio] To what do I owe this honor?
These are the results of the exhumation.
It says Simón had
traces of sedatives in his body.
The police say that
he must have taken them
to work up the courage.
But I personally don't buy it.
I have the feeling
someone gave them to him
to kill him more easily.
You should've been a writer, Ignacio.
You have a lot of imagination.
And clearly, you don't.
These drugs,
they're the same ones they found
when they did the autopsy on Mom.
[scoffs] You didn't even bother
to change your method, asshole.
[woman] I want a divorce.
I want custody over the kids.
And if you say no, I don't care!
I'll go to the police!
You're a monster, Rogelio!
That's what I married!
[Rogelio] Okay, Eloísa.
Calm down. Calm down.
Relax. Relax. Let me.
I'll do it. Sit down.
[Eloísa groans]
[tense music playing]
[Eloísa] How could you do this?
It's just business, Eloísa.
It's a shame you don't understand.
- Don't touch me!
- [grunts] Eloísa.
[suspenseful music playing]
- Mom.
- [Rogelio] What are you doing here, Simón?
Go to your room.
[Ignacio] These drugs
aren't meant to treat depression
unless you happen to have an explanation,
something that would actually justify
why Mom took them.
- Tell me.
- Your mother had arthritis, Ignacio.
She suffered terrible pain.
And the drugs she took for her condition
caused insomnia.
So she used the other one
to help her sleep.
Arthritis? But Mom didn't have arthritis.
Yes, she did.
She was diagnosed when she was expecting.
It happens to some women
when they're pregnant,
but she didn't want to be pitied
or for you to feel guilty, Ignacio.
So she decided to suffer in silence.
It's all in her medical history.
I swear, one day,
you will fall.
And I feel like it'll be very soon.
Yeah, I followed you, or I wouldn't have
known what you were doing.
- Why'd you lie?
- I didn't lie.
I just didn't tell you
or my grandfather, that's all.
I didn't want you to get involved.
If something happened,
you would have been implicated.
Do you know how long the sentence is
for forging documents?
Not gonna let those women down.
As a police officer,
I should be reporting you.
Well, then, I guess it's my luck
that you're suspended, Detective Márquez.
It's the last thing that could confirm
whether Gregorio talked to my father.
I was gonna give it to the police,
but we should check it out first.
You sure we can trust your guy?
Um, he's an IT expert.
He's helping me investigate a case
I'm working on.
Did you think about what I said?
[emotional music playing]
[phone buzzing]
[Federico sighs]
- I better go.
- Wait, Valentina.
I wanna make love to you.
Even if it's only once.
[emotional music continues]
[vocal dance music playing]
Hi. How is everything?
Hi. Everything is great.
Can I please get a glass of water?
I'll tell the waitress. No alcohol?
Oh no. I'm sorry.
Please, I thought you were an employee.
Excuse me.
I'm the owner. Are you from around here?
Palma de Mallorca.
Listen, I'm just curious.
Can I ask you a question?
What does a place like this cost?
Well, it isn't cheap.
That's why I need my clients
to order more than a glass of water.
- You want a whiskey?
- That would be perfect.
[woman whooping]
[woman] Yeah!
A whiskey at three.
[singing in Spanish]
[man 1] What do you think?
[Matilde continues singing]
Wow, she's talented.
What genre should we put her in?
- [man 1] Genre?
- Yeah.
Tropical, pop, traditional?
It doesn't really matter.
I don't care.
You have all the time in the world.
Whatever you want.
Seriously, it's your call.
[man 2] Okay.
[singing continues]
You have been late for work
nearly every day, Matilde.
Sorry, I've been composing,
so I don't have as much time anymore.
Composing songs for a new album.
Yeah, I really hope
it'll help me find a producer.
To manipulate you
and make you into someone you're not.
Dad, I hear you,
but they're not all like that.
How many girls make it?
Girls like you.
One in a million.
The rest sell their soul to the devil
and just get used.
That stage is all you need
to be happy in your life.
Believe me.
You know what?
Forget what I said, all right?
Let's get to work.
I really don't want any secrets, Matilde.
Dad, you are the last person
who should tell anybody
not to keep secrets.
[Jordi] Barracuda is in Mexico City,
and he just sent a message to Shark
saying the package has been delivered.
- The package?
- Yes.
It's intriguing
since they always talk about merchandise.
So I'm pretty sure it's just one woman
they're sending to the Aquarium.
It must be a big deal. I'm sure of it.
- And you couldn't trace the messages?
- No, impossible.
These guys use apps on their phones
that cover their tracks.
So each time, it's different.
[exhales sharply]
Hey, think you could help me
unlock this phone?
I need to know what's in it
before giving it to the police.
Yeah, but it all depends.
If I can't trace the system,
it'll take a little longer,
but, yeah, I can do it.
- You can leave it here. Sure.
- All right. It's here.
[Jordi] Okay.
- [Valentina] See you.
- Yeah.
[sensual music playing]
- [Camilo] How are you?
- I'm fine.
Can I get a whiskey? Thanks.
- [Benny] Camilo!
- Benny.
- My guy.
- How are you?
- It's been a while.
- Yeah, right?
- Are you with the attorney?
- No, dude. I don't do that anymore.
I came here on my own.
- Ah! [laughs]
- No.
Hey, man. I heard that Manny was back.
Yeah, that's true,
and now she's the owner.
Uh, do you know where she is?
She's doing a private show.
I mean, come on.
You can't put lipstick on a pig.
I'm out. Help yourself.
Take care of my friend.
A pig. Fucker.
- Thanks, man.
- [bartender] Enjoy.
[tense music playing]
- Hi there, handsome.
- How are you?
- What's up, dude?
- Sorry.
What was it you told me?
Now you only get naked
for people when you want, no?
[sensual music continues]
What was Camilo doing here?
Came to see me.
You you and him
Auntie, things have changed
between me and my sisters.
It's like we've lost trust in each other.
I don't know.
Lead me to the light ♪
Just get me through the night ♪
[Carmela] Hey, have you heard
from Bautista?
Her phone is off,
so she can't receive messages.
[sighs] I'm really
getting worried, Auntie.
[Carmela] Don't worry.
I'm sure she's fine.
Is anyone there?
Please. Come on. Let me out of here.
You can call it sin ♪
[Bautista's voice mail]
Hi. Please leave a message.
This might be the end ♪
But you'll be back again ♪
Lover ♪
We live or die ♪
On the edge of a lie ♪
We either fall, or we fly ♪
Yeah, we fall, or we fly ♪
Where are you, Bautista?
[music ends]
[door opens]
[door closes]
[breathing heavily]
What is this place?
What did they do to me?
Where is Miguel?
You really don't know anything?
You're in a place called the Aquarium.
No one comes or goes
without authorization.
This Miguel must have brought you here.
The guy who kidnapped me
was supposedly named Lucas.
I'm sorry.
The other night when I changed you,
I thought you'd already been here before.
[emotional music playing]
Yours is on your ass.
Okay, but mine is actually a birthmark.
I don't believe in coincidences.
We were put in the same room.
It must be destiny. I'm sure.
You and I were meant to meet.
What's your name?
I am Ana.
Ana Valencia.
[machine whirring]
Uh, Arturo, can you check the boxes
in the warehouse? Thanks.
Did you tell Federico?
Camilo, what you saw in the club wasn't
Wasn't what it looked like?
I think it was.
It was a game.
A game that, let's say, got out of hand.
I just
I didn't know
there was something between you guys.
If you go and ask Manny,
she'll say there's nothing between us.
So there's no need
to give me an explanation.
I'm sorry.
I really am.
You know what?
I'm not.
I needed that reality check
to finally understand
that no one can survive
on the crumbs of love.
Or being someone's second choice.
I don't think I deserve this.
I didn't tell Fede because I don't think
you deserve it either.
Thank you.
[man] Hold on.
You're beautiful. You love music?
- Yes.
- You look great.
Another one.
Hold on.
I'm gonna change the filters.
I wanna take a few more.
[man 2] No, no. No more photos.
Send me the invoice, okay?
- All right.
- [man 2] Matilde.
- Thank you.
- [photographer] No problem.
[Matilde] Héctor!
I've been here for eight months.
They've tried to sell me
outside the country,
but they've already failed three times.
I've been lucky so far.
Most girls leave the house
after six months.
Are we in Mexico City? Do you even know?
No one knows.
We're all brought here
unconscious or blindfolded.
You gotta see this as a fort full of gold
and understand
that no one can know we exist.
Very important people are involved.
Politicians, famous actors.
Even royalty.
That's Ángel.
He isn't so bad.
The other day I convinced him
to let me use a computer at the reception
to send a coded message to my brother.
I really hope he understood.
[tense music playing]
No! Óscar!
[Ángel] What?
Óscar is here.
I'm clairvoyant,
and sometimes the dead speak to me.
Your brother is watching you.
He knows what you're doing.
[tense music playing]
[bell ringing]
- What's happening?
- [Ana] Come on. It's a VIP client.
Come on. Don't worry. You'll be fine.
[tense music continues]
[vocal dance music playing]
That Spanish guy is here again.
Come on.
[music continues playing in background]
[Manuela] You come here almost every day.
You only have one drink
and ask my employees tons of questions.
Why don't you tell me
what the hell you're doing here?
Relax. Relax.
I'm Carlos Sánchez.
I had to leave Spain
because some guys were after me.
I'm actually looking
to buy a place like this for my business.
It's not for sale.
Come on.
Everyone has a price.
And I know that clubs like these
tend to borrow money
from people with little to no patience.
Yeah, we don't have any debts.
You're telling me you have a rich dad?
Paco, a whiskey.
[Nina] Tequila. Thanks.
Who's that guy with Manny?
I asked you a question!
An admirer.
He comes almost every night.
He doesn't take his eyes off her,
señor Suárez.
[pensive music playing]
Hey, give this gentleman
whatever he wants, okay?
Thank you again.
"Impremar Unlimited."
Why does that name sound familiar?
Hot chicks, huh?
Especially Manny.
She's the owner here,
but she used to be a dancer.
Oh really?
The way she moves is magic.
[laughs] Are you a friend?
A friend?
Manny doesn't have any friends.
- What do you want, asshole?
- Hey, hey, hey. Relax, okay?
Relax, huh?
I'm just here to warn you.
The guy you were talking to earlier
happens to be working for Interpol.
Now you're just talking nonsense.
I'm not talking nonsense, Manny!
I know these kinds of guys very well.
And I also know
the kind of questions they ask, huh?
Where'd you get the money
to buy this place?
Is it clean money or not?
- Of course it is.
- Okay.
Okay. Good.
For your own sake
I hope that's the case
because that guy is looking for proof.
He's on your tail.
You're totally plastered.
[pensive music playing]
[Federico] I wanna make love to you.
Even if it's only once, Valentina.
- [answering machine tone]
- [Federico] Please leave a message.
Federico, Thursday.
Hotel Urbano, 9:00 p.m.
[suspenseful music playing]
On our side of the house,
they care for us as though we're all
endangered animals that they wanna sell,
while the girls on the other side
are treated like slaves
for the VIP clients.
I heard that they keep them drugged
so that they're always willing.
[sighs] This is just hell
dressed up as paradise.
How long does a VIP client
usually stay at the house?
Two or three days.
Why do you ask?
Are you already planning an escape?
I'm down for literally anything.
I swear to God.
Just tell me what you need.
I just need Ángel to believe me, okay?
The EP, or whatever it's called,
is ready to go.
Whenever we want.
- And the article is a bombshell.
- Mm.
Enough to revive your career?
My career isn't dead.
The media denying me my place, that's all.
Plus, I always thought it was weird,
Dominga disappearing without a trace.
Especially right before
she hit the big time.
No other journalist understood it either.
You were bordering on obsession.
You wrote 11 articles on the same subject
in four years.
[Rogelio chuckles]
What can I tell you?
She was a very beautiful
and talented woman.
It's hard to believe she's a man now.
And you, Mr. Marroquín
I mean, for you,
is this an obsession or revenge?
[tense music playing]
I'm not part of your damn article.
My mistake.
I gotta go.
[pop music in Spanish playing]
What are you doing here?
I came to have a drink at my sister's bar.
Is that okay?
I have a date tonight,
and I didn't wanna be home.
- Oh, I just thought you were here to
- I'm not here to spy on you. Don't worry.
I don't know what living all together
is doing to us.
I'm not really sure.
I don't know.
Sometimes I feel like I'm being watched.
So tell me about your date.
Another guy from Tinder?
[Valentina] Mm-mmm.
Careful. You don't wanna end up
like Pocho and me, right?
Can you believe
he signed the divorce papers?
For three months, he wouldn't budge,
and then I got them in the mail.
Boom! I'm free.
Oh, that's awesome! That's great news!
Yeah, best news ever.
Are you waiting for someone?
Uh, maybe Jordi. I don't know.
He was coming here every day
and then just disappeared out of the blue.
I wanted to call him,
but I don't have his number.
Nope. I don't have it either.
- [sighs]
- For real.
He changes it at least once a week.
Ugh, he's so complicated.
I have his address though.
The hotel room is ready.
All right.
So why the long face, then?
I just wanted to say
that it isn't Federico's fault.
But now he knows Valentina is his sister.
So he deserves this.
You spent a lot of time and money on this.
You've even been stabbed in the stomach.
Wouldn't it have been easier
to get rid of these girls?
Yeah, of course.
Just like it's easier
to solve a puzzle with 500 pieces
than one with 3,000.
[tense music playing]
But when it's easy,
it's not as much fun.
But I know that
simple people like you, Víctor,
can't understand this notion.
[tense music continues]
[doorbell rings]
How do you know where I live?
Valentina gave me your address.
Claudio stayed for the night shift
because I wanted to bring you this cake.
I just wanted to thank you
for everything you've done
for me and Daniel.
Uh, thanks, but you didn't have to.
Uh, okay.
Well, then, excuse me. Enjoy. Thanks.
Why did I say that?
[doorbell rings]
Jordi, why didn't you come back
to the bar?
You had me believe
that you were attracted to me,
but now I'm wondering,
were you playing me or what?
No, of course not. I'm attracted to you.
You drive me crazy,
but since you said
you didn't want anything romantic,
I didn't want you to feel pressured,
that's all.
Oh, so you just wanted
to give me some space?
Uh, yeah. Some space, that's all.
I wouldn't mind having a piece of cake.
Oh yeah, sure. [splutters]
Uh, why don't you come in, then?
So you have an agent
for your music career, right?
Yes, but it's a secret
until I make it, of course.
Who is it? What's his name? [chuckles]
I'm not gonna tell you.
I won't because I know
you'll search for him on the Internet.
- On the Internet? [chuckles]
- Yes.
We'll know if he's honest or not. Come on.
He was recommended by someone
who's well-connected
and in whom I completely trust.
You don't have to protect me, Jordi.
Yeah, I know.

[woman] Have a great night.
- Good evening.
- Good evening.
I have a reservation for tonight.
[music continues playing]
- [Federico] Hi there.
- Um, hi.
I saw you dancing earlier.
Are you here in Cancún on vacation?
- My name is
- No.
No names.
This will probably be
the last time we see each other.
Why don't we let destiny decide?
