What are you going to do? I don’t know yet. You want my opinion? Then I better keep it to myself. Clara. Hello. Nuria told me you were here. Yes, but we’re going, we have class. Wait a minute. I don’t want to argue anymore. I don’t want you to tell me anything. Let me decide it on my own. And when I get it clear, I’ll tell you. I thought you already had decided. I’ll call you. Goodbye. Goodbye. Are you going to enter or not? I don’t know what to do. If you don’t hurry they will close. Clara makes me doubt. I saw her the other day so affected. How fucked up! Yes. We must always have to make decisions. Yes, that’s life, making decisions. Yes. And adding up losses. Adding up losses? Where did you get that? In philosophy class. It was in the text that they made us discuss. You don’t remember? No. It stuck in my mind. I’ve been thinking. And have you reached any conclusions? Yes. That this is true. It’s a way of understanding what is happening to you. You are walking forward, but you are leaving things behind you that you are losing along the way. If you turn your head and look back, they are still there. I prefer not to think about what I lost. If you go away, I’ll have to add you to my list of losses. You have been trapped hard with philosophy, huh? Don’t make fun. I’m telling you the truth. Before you have not allowed me to tell you. What? I don’t want you to go. I have no other friend like you. You have Gus. It’s not the same, you know too well. A friend is a friend and a boyfriend is something else. Yeah. So what? Are you going to enter or not? I don’t know what to do. If you don’t hurry, they will close. I’ll call you later to narrow the meeting time. OK. Goodbye. Hello. As time passes, you have more work. Yes. I have finished right now. Want to come to have lunch? No, no. Dani is not here? He went to Mollet for that job in the apartments. Ok. Did you want to talk to him? With both of you. I already have the plane ticket. Max … I’m leaving on Tuesday. Tuesday … so soon? Yes. Listen, come home for lunch, huh? and we can talk quietly. No, no. I don’t want to talk anymore. When I can, I’ll stop by your place to look for my things. Very well. Come anytime. I’m going, huh? Nuria is expecting me for lunch. You’re not coming to bed? I can’t sleep. Tomorrow you will not get out of bed. I will go later. Is it because of Max? Looks like he doesn’t care at all about me. That’s not true. Oh no? No. You cannot go on forever like this. You’ve been all afternoon in his bedroom. I was tidying up. His closet was a mess. Clara. He has a picture of you on the wall. I took it in Cardiff that day it rained so much. Do you remember? Yes. Now he will take everything and that’s it. What about me? I am his mother and he doesn’t care at all. No. If he leaves, it’s not your fault. No, I already know that. Clara! If you had not meddled, Max would be here. We don’t know that. Look, whenever we had problems, you have helped me and you have known what to do. But with him you behaved like a jerk. So what? Do you want us to argue again? You shouldn’t have taken him to a psychologist! Okay, I was wrong! But this is already solved. Yeah yeah. I talked to him, I’ve apologized … But the damage was already done. Look, listen, I’m sorry too that he’s leaving, huh? No, it’s not the same, he’s not your son. Look, enough, Clara! I’m also feeling bad. No, it’s not enough! We came here to be with him and Nuria. And so far we had no problems. I thought this time it would be fine, I’ve done everything I could. I don’t know why you had to meddle, dammit! What’s up? Are you going to spend your entire life blaming me? And what do you want me to do? That you understand it once and for all, fuck! Max leaves with his father because he always wanted to be with his father. And until you get that in your head … Sorry, Dani. I’m sorry, sorry, come here. Dani, I don’t want to lose him. I don’t want to lose him. I grabbed this bag. It’s going to fit everything in? Also I will grab those I have at Nuria’s place. You don’t mind, right? One of them is yours. Take it. You sure? Yes! Listen. The computer in my bedroom … Your bedroom will stay as it is, I will not touch anything. As you wish. The plane leaves tomorrow afternoon. I hope I don’t get seasick. I think it’s not a very long journey, right? No, no. This evening we’ll meet at La Fusteria, with K and Gus. To say goodbye and all of that. Nuria also will come. Will you come, right? I don’t know. If you want, I’ll call you later and tell you the exact time. Look, I don’t think I’ll be able to go. Some customers have to come looking for a quote and I still haven’t finished it. But if you have a moment, come. We will not be long. We’ll see. Well … Goodbye. Goodbye. How nice You could do a report on nudity in the Mediterranean, right? Yes, and then you can send the images. You are always the same way… Yup … You can connect it on Quim’s computer and send it to whoever you want. Do you like it or not? Yup. It was Marcel’s idea. Thank you. You’re welcome. I’m sorry for these past days, I didn’t want to bother you but … You don’t need to say anything. Now you have to think about yourself. Come on, what do you want? On the last day I invite you, right? About time. But just one round. I still have clothes around the room and I have to finish packing. Yes, you wanted me to iron the clothes. Hey, I do iron too. Come on, what do you want? I’m going to get the drinks because Fede has to prepare cocktails. It’s a shame he’s leaving. For all of us, for him too. Yes, I know, hopefully with Quim he’ll be fine once and for all. Here, Max has already suffered too much. He is sad. Clara should have come. You should call her. If she didn’t come it’s because she did not want to. Don’t be angry with her, maybe it’s true that she could not come and … I wished she had come. Today you have told a lie. No. You said you had to pack and already you had done it. I didn’t want to spend anymore time there. It’s also hard for me to leave. But you have to pay a forfeit, you told a lie. It’s been a long time since we played that. Come on, just one forfeit. And I’ll let you go. Thank you. Give me something of yours. What do you want? Maybe the camcorder… But, you have just given it to me … Well, then think of something … You never wore it. It’s my turn now. What? I will tell a lie, so I’ll give you something of mine. As long as you don’t give me the video of your surgery … I remember when you watched it. That’s why I liked you. Because you didn’t puke or treat me like I was a freak. Even if you are one of them. Because you made me watch some movies … Remember when we both had colorfully dyed hair? Everyone laughed, making the same joke … … You look like the Barça’s shield (FC Barcelona) They are fools. Hey, you still have to tell the lie. I will not miss you. And … I have something else for you. A song? Worse. Yesterday I wrote something for you. But I want you to read it on the plane. No, no, do it now. No, no, I want you to take it. Come on, I like the way you read. I want to listen to it now. But don’t laugh, huh?, it has been difficult. There is a little bit that is not mine, but I liked it and … Come on, start. The days will pass and we will talk about the weather, about the postcard that arrives, about the desire to hear your voice, to have you near me, if it depended on me, I would tie you by my side, I would give you whatever you want, but you wouldn’t look at me because your eyes are already too far. And your eyes are so strong … We’ll learn to talk about distances, like the one that washes his face or is going to buy some bread, while we dream that you return, on the other side of the world, this is your home too. Do you have the passport? Yes. And the identity card? Yes. What time does the plane leave? At 20.00h. So, at 18.30 h he should be at the airport. Is that ok? Yes. Hey, what are you talking about? We’ll take you to the airport by car. No, you don’t have to, I will take a taxi. It doesn’t bother us to take you. And it doesn’t cost me anything to take a taxi. Man nothing, nothing … 30 Euros at least. So what? Ah, well. Yes, we’ll wait until the plane takes off. And we will say goodbye and we’ll kiss. And perhaps we’ll cry and everything. No way, Nuria. Hey, I tell you there is no need, really. And I say yes and that’s it, no more talk. Ok. But you guys don’t bring banners. Silly! Listen, maybe we should tell Clara, no? In the car there is a place for her and Dani, if they want. No need to tell her anything, she will not come. But maybe it’s worth you phoning her. We already said goodbye yesterday. And that’s it, I don’t want to talk anymore. You want to stay for lunch? No thanks. You sure? Yeah, sure. I’ve been shopping all morning, but I still have things to get. What have you bought? Nothing much, stuff for Max. T-shirts, cologne, a book … And I still want to look for some compact discs. What time does the plane leave? At 20.00 h. Marcel and I will accompany him to the airport. If you want to come, there is room to spare in the car. Yes. No, we can’t. We have work. We are expecting some clients. We can call them and change the meeting for tomorrow, right? We have arranged the meeting for today. Well, whatever you want, I already I have told you. If you want to stay for lunch, now you know. I’ll check on the chicken. Why don’t you talk to her? And try to convince her. Max needs to see her before leaving. Will you go around the world? Not the whole world. Quim will not turn back for me. You’ll go halfway around the world. Yes. Jules Verne has a book that explains it. Yes, I know, “Around the World in 80 Days” Have you read it? Yes. I haven’t yet. I have read the one about the sea, and now I’m reading one about people going
to the center of the earth. Do you like it? Yeah, it’s cool. Max … why are you leaving? To be with Quim. Are you angry with Clara? No. I thought you were angry. I’m angry with my mom but I can’t go anywhere. But you shall make amends. Besides, you also have Ivan and your grandmother. Yes. And if you’re not angry with Clara, why are you leaving? Because here I feel lonely. Here lad, your snack. Thank you. My mom will pay you later. Yeah man, don’t worry. Max … Goodbye. Goodbye. And tell Quim that Dani fired me from the carpentry. And that I’m now working in a toy workshop and I don’t like it. Goodbye. Goodbye. What you have to tell him is that he comes back soon, we are missing him. Here, take this to your father. They are croquettes. Croquettes? They will arrive puréed. Well … then he must eat them with a spoon. I spent all morning in the kitchen, now they are not going to stay here. I’ll take them in the hand luggage. I’ll watch that they are not crushed. But if I’m hungry, perhaps they won’t arrive. And don’t forget the family. Goodbye. Give him kisses from us, eh? Yes. Well, goodbye. Have a nice trip. Goodbye. Thank You. Thank you. Goodbye and thank you. Goodbye. You are not happy? In the end, the business will work. Yes. Hello. What’s up mom? Nothing. I was tidying and I found this. Nuria has forgotten and left it at your place and as it was for Max … … maybe someone should take it to him. What do we do Clara? Croquettes? Yes, Cinta has prepared them for Quim. That’s weird. Well … Max, is everything here? I’m coming. Well, I’m leaving. Send mobile phone messages, eh? Yes. Have fun. Do you remember what you told me the day we “did it”? What? That even though we don’t return to see each other again, we would never forget. Because you never forget the first person with whom you make love. Max. What’s up? Hello. Nuria had left it at my place. I thought you wouldn’t come. Forgive me, son. Tell me you forgive me. I’m sorry. No, son, it was me who … It has nothing to do with Dani, neither with you. That’s it, no need to explain anything to me. You have the luck of knowing what you want and the strength to do so. I cannot stop you. Quim and I got engaged to look after you and although it’s hard, I must let you go. I love you. Me too. Come on, get in the car. Goodbye kid. Have a good trip. Thank You. Goodbye Mom. Goodbye son. Are you okay? Did you hear it? He called me mom. It’s the first time he has said it.
