Tin Star (2017) s02e03 Episode Script

Resist Not Evil

Coming from anywhere besides the U.
? Mexico.
- Purpose of your visit? - Family.
You have family in Mexico? My mother was Canadian, but I was born in Chihuahua.
Lotta driving.
Why all the back and forth? I'm a preacher.
- Any food, plants or animals? - No.
- Anything over $800? - No.
Mind if I check? Sure.
Would you get out and open the back for me, please? [BAG RUSTLING.]
Guide me with your love, God.
Guide me with your spirit.
You're good to go.
Welcome home, Father.
Thank you.
Does he know I'm here? No.
I know you're out there! Do you want me to go by the colony, pick up Anna? Being picked up by the police? She'd hate that.
Angela, what do you want me to do? [SIGHS.]
Just don't let him out.
If he agrees to go to rehab, the law says I have to.
Rehab? Are we talking about the same man here? [FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING.]
What did she say? What did who say? Don't fuck about.
Does she know where Anna is? [SIGHS.]
- You going to let me out? - You gonna go to rehab? What are my options? Federal prison pending trial.
- I'll take prison.
- You heard the man, Denise.
You'd rather go to jail than get sober? - I am sober.
- [NICK.]
Hey! Keep your hands where I can see 'em! Is it the puberty thing? - It's a moustache.
- Is it? [JIM.]
You want me clean, right? Yes.
So, you let me out of here, and I can find Anna.
- Will you go to a meeting? - Absolutely not.
Name's Jim.
- [WOMAN.]
Hello, Jim.
- [MAN.]
Hello, Jim.
All right.
Got 44 hours in, 44 hours sober.
Got nothing else to say, really, except that I think that this is a load of bollocks and that you all look like you - Thank you, Jim.
- Genetically challenged - Thank you, Jim.
Thank you.
- [JIM.]
No offence.
- Can I go now? - No.
Is this a closed meeting? Yes.
If this is a closed meeting, I mean, no one's going to be able to share, honestly, with fucking uniform in the room, I mean, really.
- I'm right.
Am I right? Right.
- Mmm-hmm.
Right? I'm going to be waiting in the hallway.
Son of a bitch! [WIND HOWLING.]
Come here.
It's good to see you.
Have you been a good man? Good.
Easy There we are, Mrs Fadenrecht.
That should be nice and numb in a few minutes.
For heaven's sake, don't try and whistle, Mrs Fadenrecht.
My wife will be with you in a moment, Mrs Fadenrecht.
- How are you? - [CHUCKLES.]
Surviving the cold, barely.
- Johan.
- What? Everyone keeps asking questions.
"When will the pastor be back?" "Where is your husband, Mrs Nickel?" Especially Mr Quiring.
He comes round several times a day.
He wants you.
- No.
- I don't blame him.
I have a rotten tooth to pull.
Let me look at you.
You're a beauty.
- Isn't she a beauty, Mamacita? - And a handful.
Did you stay out of trouble? Course not, I'm your daughter.
Did you bring me a gift? [QUIETLY.]
New tack.
Yes! And a piƱata for you, Thomas.
The border guards opened it, so, someone had better check if they ate all the sweeties.
Cup of coffee, Papa? Slice of pie? [CHUCKLES.]
Why's everyone being so nice? [SARAH.]
What were we supposed to do? Save her life then throw her out? What do the elders say? [ROSA.]
Stuff the elders! I found her, I'm responsible for her.
It's not like taking in a stray dog, Rosa.
Does Quiring know? - Sarah.
- She's staying anyway.
- I promised her.
- [JOHAN.]
She can't.
If she goes, I go.
Stop being such a teenager.
Where does she get this stubbornness from? The Lord! - [FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING.]
- [SIGHS.]
What's happened? - It's jammed.
What do you mean, "it's jammed"? [SIGHS.]
I mean, it won't pump.
Come here to me.
Let me.
Go on, get out.
- It's jammed.
- Yeah.
Fuck it.
Ammonites are good cooks, Anna.
We grow and we make everything ourselves.
Careful, that's hot.
Bake our own breads and cakes and pies.
You've never even boiled an egg.
Does it still hurt, Anna? I'm not that hungry, thank you.
Save some space for Saskatoon pie, Anna.
She's not hungry, Mama.
Finish your supper, Anna.
Mr Quiring.
- You're back, Pastor Nickel.
- I am.
Travel broadens the mind.
Can I help you with anything? Well, the pastor is in charge of our spiritual welfare.
- Yeah? - You've been gone a week.
- Six days.
- Without my permission.
I need permission? We don't want people coming and going willy-nilly.
Or what would become of the colony? [SIGHS.]
Perhaps the real leader is the man who holds the purse strings, Mr Quiring? I hope my visits to relatives back home won't distract me from my duties to Prairie Field.
I hope not.
Where are we going? There's an old well around here somewhere.
Ah, fuck that.
Can't we just buy some water? I'm starting to stink.
- No, no, no, no, no.
- What? [SIGHS.]
How the hell did he get out of jail? I warned you.
Well, maybe tell him we're in deep shit.
- What? - Ask him for help! No fucking way.
Do you mind? Sorry, could you give us a moment? [ENGINE STOPS.]
So, did I kill her boyfriend? 'Cause if I killed her boyfriend, then he must have killed Pete, so I'm off the hook, right? What? He killed her brother, he killed our son, - there's consequences.
- You're unbelievable.
Let's just bring her home.
What the hell are you talking about? We don't have a fucking home.
And I'm not telling you where she is.
She's with the God squad.
I can't bear this any more.
This isn't a marriage.
This is a fucking suicide pact.
If you go near Anna, I will kill you.
What do we tell everyone? We tell them that Anna is my cousin.
- Twice removed.
Which side? My mother's side.
Which explains her melancholy disposition.
I didn't know you were such a good liar, Johan.
All right.
Seen this girl? Which girl? This girl.
I don't know.
You all right? Never mind.
May I help you, Officer? Yes, you may.
Seen this girl? Weapons are forbidden here.
Yeah, well, I'm not going to shoot anyone yet.
Seen this girl? This is the girl we found in the barn.
Which barn? Who found her? [INDISTINCT CHATTERING.]
Which one of you is Sarah? [CHATTERING STOPS.]
Seen this girl? It's my daughter.
Where is she? You do speak English, do you? I'm sorry, I can't help you.
What was that? [WOMEN MURMURING.]
Oh, dear, look, look.
He's a cop? You won't tell him where I am, will you? In Chihuahua, la chota were all criminals.
Fuck the cops.
Can I have your attention, please? My daughter's run away from home.
And I think she's hiding here.
And me and her mum are very worried.
So Anna, if you can hear me, we just want to help, love.
We just want to do the right thing, so, if you can hear me, why don't you come out.
- He won't find you up here.
- Yeah, he will.
He's a police officer, Sarah.
He's a madman, Johan.
Do you want us to get in trouble with the law? Our law is the scripture.
The scriptures say nothing about this.
Go out there and talk to him.
What do I say? [SARAH SIGHS.]
Be who they expect us to be, Johan.
Act like an idiot.
Fucking hell, the beards compulsory in this shit hole? This is my daughter.
Have you seen her? Your wife found her, apparently.
Mind if I have a look about? Coming in.
It's a bit grim, innit? - Where's your daughter? - Don't know.
- You got any other rooms? - No.
What's up there? Junk.
Got a torch? Well, you're hiding something.
Now, I want my daughter back.
With us, where she's safe.
Now, I don't know what you got going on here, but it fucking stinks.
And I've been a cop for 30 years and I can smell it.
I'll be around.
Whoa! - Fuck! What the fuck! All right, Danny? What the fuck? What the fuck you doing in here? I live here.
They let you out of jail, then? Man, I had nothing to do with your son.
No, I know.
No, I mean, they had to drop the charges.
I know, Danny, I know.
- I fucking swear to God - Danny, it's all right, mate.
It's all right.
I know, I believe you.
- All right.
- All right.
This is your trailer, then? [SWITCH CLICKS.]
Fucking hell.
You got some money, man? [JIM.]
Fuck it.
Here you are, get yourself a taxi.
You get yourself to the nearest bar, all right? [DANNY CHUCKLES.]
Here you are.
Stay warm.
Is she okay? She's fine.
She's safe.
She's with us.
It's just that What? Your husband won't leave the colony until your daughter is turned over.
You won't, will you? Certainly not.
I promise.
Tell me, is he a very wicked man? No.
Only when he drinks.
I felt safe here.
For the first time in my life.
Safety is not a place, Anna.
It's a feeling.
Of trust.
I trust you.
People make mistakes, Anna.
We all do.
Which is why I I put my trust, my life in the hands of my heavenly Father.
What if I don't believe? Faith is Is like a seed.
It takes time.
Nourish it and it will grow.
That's That's a big decision, Anna.
I know.
To be baptised means to live a new life.
For Christ.
I want to put my trust in something.
Once you are baptised, you cannot go back to your old way of life.
I don't want to go back.
How can you be sure? I hate my old life.
We only baptise you when you recognise the Lord in your heart.
For some, that comes late.
Even Rosa isn't baptised yet.
And besides, what if life here is not as perfect as you think it is? What happens when you discover that we all have flaws.
At least you're not a criminal.
You're afraid, aren't you? I won't let him hurt us.
It's not him I'm afraid of, Anna.
Who then? [THUDS.]
You all right? Need a hand? Here.
Up you get.
Here, I won't hurt you.
- Nice.
Very nice.
He wants to see Anna.
Don't you? Give him to me.
You got one of mine, I've got one of yours.
I said, give him to me.
Give him to me.
There she is.
Go on.
This way.
- Rosa.
- [ANNA.]
Please just leave me alone.
I'm happy here.
- Come.
- Leave.
Would you mind fucking off for a minute? Don't speak to him like that! This is his home.
If anyone should be fucking off, it's you.
She shot me.
I mean, I only bring it up because I think you should take it into consideration.
Runs in the family.
- I am nothing like you.
- Yeah, you are.
- No, I'm not.
- Yeah, you are.
You live like a fucking animal.
I do not, I live in a fine, upstanding Christian community.
I'm thinking of growing a beard.
You think you're brave because you carry a gun.
But you're not.
I am your dad, though.
You're a coward.
- Yeah, well, I'm still your dad.
- And a liar.
Yeah, but I'm your dad, though, right? - And a cheat.
- But also your dad.
- You're a murderer.
- But I am your dad, though, right? [ANNA GRUNTS.]
Told you.
You all right? Give her back or I will kill you.
She has to go.
Where? To her father.
You heard what he said.
What about what Anna wants? Hmm? I promised her mother to keep her until she was ready to go.
In the meantime, neither you, nor I, nor anyone else has the right to turn that girl away if she wishes to stay.
Johan, promise me you won't send her back.
Jesus, I stink.
Where is this fucking thing? [ELIZABETH.]
The plans say the well is on the far side of the property.
Is that it? Yeah.
Quickly! Anna? [KNOCKING AT DOOR.]
The girl's father is a threat to the peace of the colony.
She must be found.
We should have turned her over as soon as we could, Johan.
Heroin? God knows.
Hello? [SARAH.]
Angela? [DOG BARKING.]
Come with me, Anna.
Where are you taking me? I'm taking you back, Anna.
No, you're not.
Don't make me drag you.
I trusted you! I'm just a man, Anna.
You're a liar.
You told me you believed in something, was that all shit? [BREATHING HEAVILY.]
Turn the other cheek, child.
What? Turn away from me.
I don't understand.
Turn away from me! Turn your thoughts to the Divine.
Put your faith in our Father.
Know that I am a child of God, though I have sinned.
Pray for the Christ in me! - Pray! - I don't know how! Look at me.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died and descended into Hell.
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died and descended into Hell.
- Where is she? - I tried to stop them! [JOHAN.]
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the one holy Christian church, the fellowship of saints, the forgiveness of sins [ANNA.]
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the one holy Christian church, the fellowship of saints, the forgiveness of sins In the resurrection of the body and in life everlasting.
In the resurrection of the body and in life everlasting.
Jim! Who's that? [JIM.]
That's Jesus.
What's he doing with our daughter? I don't fucking know.
I baptise you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
- Don't you fucking touch her! - Jim! Stop.
We're the reason she's doing this.
Let's leave her alone.
Bar's closed.
Scripture is truth and prophesy.
Christ Jesus teaches us just not how to live, but what happens when we do not live by it.
After 20 centuries, the prophesy is fulfilled.
Today, men think that the only way to settle a conflict is by force.
But there is another way.
Christ Jesus teaches us that when someone who means you harm comes into your home, your school, your life, - [ENGINE REVVING.]
turn your cheek, your head, your thoughts away from the aggressor.
Resist not evil.
That is the true revenge.
The realisation of the presence of God's love in all his creatures, restores peace.
All right.
Nice hat.
