BARAN BO ODAR (Director & Showrunner)

Born in 1978 in Olten, Switzerland, Baran bo Odar made a splash with his gripping thriller The Silence (2010), starring Wotan Wilke Möhring, Ulrich Thomsen and Katrin Saß. This feature-film debut, which was screened at numerous festivals at home and abroad, received overwhelming critical acclaim. Odar gained international attention with his next film, the
complex cyber-thriller Who Am I (2014). Produced by Wiedemann & Berg, who are also the producers of Dark , Who Am I features the crème de la crème of Germany’s actors: Tom Schilling, Elyas M’Barek, Wotan Wilke Möhring, Hannah Herzsprung and Antoine Monot Jr. The box office hit had its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Born in Marburg, Germany in 1977, Jantje Friese studied Production and Media Business at the University of Television and Film Munich. Her first position after graduation was as a producer at the film production companies Made in Munich and Neue Sentimental Film Berlin. During this time, she supervised the production of a variety of commercials before she worked as a producer for the big screen for the first time with Baran bo Odar’s feature-length film debut, The Silence (2010).

 

After that, she changed roles and went from production to writing. In the meantime, Friese is also active all over the world and has developed projects for production companies in Los Angeles and London. She and Baran bo Odar wrote the screenplay for Who Am I (2014) together, and Odar filmed it; the political and cyber-thriller received outstanding reviews and earned six 2015 German Film Award nominations, including in the “Best Screenplay” category.

 

Along with her work as a writer, Jantje Friese also coaches actors, writers and producers with a thematic focus on drama and character development.

QUIRIN BERG and MAX WIEDEMANN (Producers)

Last year, Quirin Berg and Max Wiedemann celebrated their greatest success as producers to date with Welcome to Germany (2016), which was written and directed by Simon Verhoeven. With an audience of more than 3.7 million, it became the most successful German film production of the year. At the German Film Awards, the film not only won a Lola for the year’s most popular film, but it was also one of the five films nominated in the “Best Film” category. The producers had already released Verhoeven’s English-language horror film Friend Request (2016) last spring with great success. Then came the acclaimed three-part TV film NSU: German History X , along with the ambitious two-part TV film Rivals Forever - The Sneaker Battle (Die Dasslers).

 

The duo continued its successful run in 2017. The producers landed a winner, both with critics and in the ratings, with Marvin Kren’s six-part series 4 Blocks starring Kida Khodr Ramadan, Frederick Lau and Dark costar Oliver Masucci, which had its world premiere at the Berlinale. Since 2012 they have also produced eleven successful Tatort episodes, and they are currently in post-production of the series Tannbach II and the TV movies Tödliche Geheimnisse – Jagd in Kapstadt , Das Nebelhaus and Wir lieben das Leben . Also in its final stages of production is the new film by Oscar winner Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Werk ohne Autor (2018) starring Tom Schilling, Sebastian Koch and Paula Beer. The feature film The Fall of the Wall is also currently in preparation.

 

Quirin Berg and Max Wiedemann met at school in fifth grade, where they discovered a mutual love of film. After graduating from high school in 1997 and gaining experience in various parts of the media industry, they began their studies together at the University of Television and Film Munich in 1999. They both graduated in 2003 with degrees in Production and Media Business. At that time, the duo produced numerous short films, which have received more than 60 national and international film prizes. In the final year of their studies they founded the Wiedemann & Berg Film company, and in 2003 they completed their first commissioned television production.

 

Their first cinematic release, The Lives Of Others (2006), which was directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, wrote film history – among other awards, it earned four Bavarian, seven German and three European film awards, a Golden Globe® nomination, the Independent Spirit Award, the British Film Award, the César award and the 2007 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

Wiedemann & Berg produced the movies St. Daisy (2012, directed by Marcus H. Rosenmüller), Men in the City 2 (2011, directed by Simon Verhoeven), Friendship! (most successful German film of the year 2010, directed by Markus Goller), Men in the City (2009, directed by Simon Verhoeven), Räuber Kneissl (2007, directed by Marcus H. Rosenmüller) and Military Academy (2006, directed by Granz Henman), as well as a variety of television films and event productions.

 

The two producers also celebrated a sensational cinematic success with the comedy Joy Of Fatherhood (2014), which was directed by Matthias Schweighöfer and Torsten Künstler and drew nearly 2.5 million viewers to German theaters, making it one of the most successful German films of the year. In 2014, they attracted international attention with the cyber-thriller Who Am I (2014) by the two creators of Dark, Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese.

 

Since the release of their first TV movie in 2007, Raging Inferno , they have repeatedly enjoyed success with notable television productions; their online series Add a Friend is currently in its third season. Frauenherzen, starring Nadeshda Brennicke and Julia Dietze, was also a success, as was the critically acclaimed TV movie Die Spiegel-Affäre , which was directed by Roland Suso Richter. That was followed by efforts such as the ambitious historical three-part film Tannbach , with leading roles played by German stars such as Martina Gedeck, Nadja Uhl, Maximilian Brückner and Ronald Zehrfeld.

 

Wiedemann & Berg productions have received numerous awards, including the Jupiter Award and the Bambi Award for Men in the City.

Amanda Krentzman graduated Wesleyan University with a BA in Economics. She started her career working in Management Consulting and after began working at William Morris Endeavor. After two years, and working with a partner there across almost every department, Amanda worked with Ben Silverman at Electus on creative development and talent packaging. Some of the shows she worked on were Jane the Virgin, Mob Wives, Fashion Star, Killer Women, Marco Polo, Bear Grylls Get out Alive and more. Following that she worked at another independent studio, The Jackal Group, and among other series she sold to cable and broadcast outlets, she sold the TV series Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life to Fox.

 

Amanda joined Netflix to work on the creative development side of the International Originals Group. The team is responsible for International Netflix Original productions outside of the US. They are looking to buy TV shows in major markets outside of the US such as Latin America, India, The Middle East, Asia and Europe and then to produce them in that country, in the local language of the country, for the audience in that country and then for that show to live on Netflix in 190 countries at once. It’s an exciting initiative and she is incredibly passionate about finding authentic shows all around the world.

TRANSCRIPTION

1
00:00:09,583 --> 00:00:15,041
THE DAY OF MIKKEL'S DISAPPEARANCE

2
00:01:51,791 --> 00:01:54,666
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,

3
00:01:55,083 --> 00:01:58,791
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

4
00:01:59,833 --> 00:02:02,791
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,

5
00:02:02,875 --> 00:02:05,000
the courage to change the things I can...

6
00:03:09,083 --> 00:03:11,041
SCHOOL ID - MADS NIELSEN

7
00:03:11,125 --> 00:03:12,000
Tronte!

8
00:03:14,000 --> 00:03:14,833
I...

9
00:03:15,750 --> 00:03:16,916
It's me, Peter.

10
00:03:18,500 --> 00:03:19,666
I...

11
00:03:19,750 --> 00:03:22,291
There's something here you should see.

12
00:03:24,416 --> 00:03:26,916
It's to do with your son.

13
00:03:27,750 --> 00:03:29,666
No, not Ulrich.

14
00:03:31,166 --> 00:03:32,000
Mads.

15
00:03:42,083 --> 00:03:42,916
How...

16
00:03:47,666 --> 00:03:48,833
That's impossible.

17
00:03:51,708 --> 00:03:53,250
That's impossible.

18
00:03:55,291 --> 00:03:57,000
He was just there all of a sudden.

19
00:04:04,500 --> 00:04:05,333
Mads.

20
00:04:10,666 --> 00:04:11,666
Mads.

21
00:04:39,166 --> 00:04:40,166
Someone's coming.

22
00:04:50,166 --> 00:04:51,000
Tronte.

23
00:04:53,333 --> 00:04:54,291
Claudia?

24
00:04:59,333 --> 00:05:00,166
Peter.

25
00:05:03,708 --> 00:05:05,833
There's a lot I have to explain.

26
00:05:11,375 --> 00:05:15,500
But first we need to take Mads
to the place where he is to be found.

27
00:05:18,000 --> 00:05:19,708
We don't have much time left.

28
00:06:50,916 --> 00:06:55,541
ALPHA AND OMEGA

29
00:08:11,708 --> 00:08:13,208
I'm sorry.

30
00:08:14,833 --> 00:08:16,708
I really fucked up.

31
00:08:18,541 --> 00:08:20,708
Since Mikkel disappeared...

32
00:08:23,125 --> 00:08:25,166
I don't recognize myself anymore.

33
00:08:30,666 --> 00:08:32,500
It doesn't matter, okay?

34
00:08:38,791 --> 00:08:40,083
Everything's okay.

35
00:08:42,916 --> 00:08:44,375
Everything's okay.

36
00:08:54,541 --> 00:08:56,166
You know how he is.

37
00:08:56,250 --> 00:08:58,250
He usually comes back after a few hours.

38
00:08:59,958 --> 00:09:01,625
He's never been gone this long.

39
00:09:05,208 --> 00:09:07,583
Was my colleague Ulrich Nielsen
here again?

40
00:09:08,250 --> 00:09:10,458
No. Not that I'm aware of, anyway.

41
00:09:11,250 --> 00:09:13,916
Only on Saturday,
when he lashed out at Mr. Doppler.

42
00:09:15,666 --> 00:09:17,583
As if your father-in-law
had something to do with the case.

43
00:10:06,333 --> 00:10:07,541
Did you know?

44
00:10:10,833 --> 00:10:12,208
Did I know what?

45
00:10:14,625 --> 00:10:16,166
The boy from the future.

46
00:10:22,625 --> 00:10:23,875
You knew.

47
00:10:41,291 --> 00:10:42,500
This is for you.

48
00:10:42,583 --> 00:10:44,500
DO NOT OPEN BEFORE NOVEMBER 4, 10:13 P.M.

49
00:10:51,500 --> 00:10:53,208
-That's impossible.
-What?

50
00:10:54,166 --> 00:10:55,416
I burned it.

51
00:11:02,416 --> 00:11:04,000
How long have you known?

52
00:11:06,208 --> 00:11:08,333
I've always known, really.

53
00:11:13,166 --> 00:11:15,041
When your father came to me,

54
00:11:16,500 --> 00:11:18,750
he was a disturbed little boy.

55
00:11:19,416 --> 00:11:22,083
I just thought
he had an overactive imagination.

56
00:11:22,791 --> 00:11:27,458
That something bad must have happened
to him, something he couldn't bear.

57
00:11:28,041 --> 00:11:29,541
He told me...

58
00:11:31,708 --> 00:11:33,291
he came from the future.

59
00:11:34,875 --> 00:11:36,625
I didn't believe him.

60
00:11:38,958 --> 00:11:40,458
If you knew...

61
00:11:43,833 --> 00:11:45,208
why didn't you stop it?

62
00:11:46,166 --> 00:11:49,166
I didn't know
that he would take his own life.

63
00:11:49,250 --> 00:11:50,916
But you could have saved Mikkel!

64
00:11:53,625 --> 00:11:56,583
Now I have another grandma
and she's the principal of my school!

65
00:11:58,083 --> 00:12:01,541
Her husband, who's fucking my mom,
is looking for his son, who's my father!

66
00:12:05,916 --> 00:12:07,875
A few days ago I kissed my aunt.

67
00:12:13,833 --> 00:12:15,333
And the crazy thing is...

68
00:12:19,333 --> 00:12:21,375
there's nothing wrong with any of them.

69
00:12:22,041 --> 00:12:23,166
They're okay.

70
00:12:24,333 --> 00:12:25,875
I'm what's wrong.

71
00:12:29,500 --> 00:12:31,291
I think things...

72
00:12:32,625 --> 00:12:34,458
no matter how abnormal

73
00:12:34,958 --> 00:12:36,750
or strange they seem to us,

74
00:12:36,833 --> 00:12:38,458
happen for a reason.

75
00:12:39,791 --> 00:12:42,250
Who are we to play God?

76
00:12:44,375 --> 00:12:46,291
What's past is past.

77
00:12:47,333 --> 00:12:48,208
But you...

78
00:12:49,083 --> 00:12:50,916
live in the here and now.

79
00:12:53,625 --> 00:12:55,958
Who knows what the future will bring.

80
00:12:56,500 --> 00:12:58,708
I just want everything
to go back to normal.

81
00:13:04,875 --> 00:13:08,291
As a kid, all that Houdini dreamed of
was becoming a magician.

82
00:13:28,083 --> 00:13:29,833
Do you have the same dream?

83
00:13:30,750 --> 00:13:31,583
Yes.

84
00:13:32,041 --> 00:13:34,208
But the magic I want to do is impossible.

85
00:13:35,041 --> 00:13:36,250
Which is what?

86
00:13:37,833 --> 00:13:39,416
I just want to finally wake up.

87
00:13:43,041 --> 00:13:45,333
Have you heard of Master Zhuang's paradox?

88
00:13:48,166 --> 00:13:50,166
I dreamt I was a butterfly.

89
00:13:51,458 --> 00:13:54,666
Now I've woken up
and no longer know if I'm a person

90
00:13:54,750 --> 00:13:57,541
who dreamed he's a butterfly,

91
00:13:58,750 --> 00:14:00,958
or if I'm a butterfly who's dreaming

92
00:14:01,458 --> 00:14:02,958
it's a person.

93
00:14:06,500 --> 00:14:07,666
What are you?

94
00:14:08,416 --> 00:14:10,875
A person or a butterfly?

95
00:14:14,000 --> 00:14:15,250
Maybe I'm both.

96
00:14:30,250 --> 00:14:31,625
My name is Egon Tiedemann.

97
00:14:32,791 --> 00:14:35,291
Maybe we can just start
with you telling me your name.

98
00:14:35,375 --> 00:14:36,416
Tiedemann?

99
00:14:37,458 --> 00:14:39,000
Egon, yes...

100
00:14:39,083 --> 00:14:40,125
Of course.

101
00:14:47,583 --> 00:14:49,750
-Are you a Satanist?
-A Satanist?

102
00:14:49,833 --> 00:14:51,750
No, I'm a cop.

103
00:14:53,291 --> 00:14:54,375
A cop?

104
00:14:54,875 --> 00:14:56,583
It's a song from the 80s.

105
00:14:57,500 --> 00:14:59,958
I can tell you now, you won't like it.

106
00:15:02,208 --> 00:15:03,208
Look into the camera.

107
00:15:05,791 --> 00:15:07,375
Why did you kill the children?

108
00:15:08,958 --> 00:15:11,458
I didn't kill the children.
I tried to save them.

109
00:15:14,458 --> 00:15:15,958
What did you do to Helge?

110
00:15:18,708 --> 00:15:20,250
He's still alive.

111
00:15:21,500 --> 00:15:23,625
He must be.
Or the children wouldn't be dead.

112
00:15:23,708 --> 00:15:25,208
Where is Helge now?

113
00:15:26,416 --> 00:15:28,541
-Where is he?
-I can change it all.

114
00:15:28,625 --> 00:15:31,708
I can change everything that's going
to happen, but you have to let me go.

115
00:15:33,708 --> 00:15:34,833
-Look into the camera.
-Please!

116
00:15:34,916 --> 00:15:36,166
Look into the camera!

117
00:15:40,750 --> 00:15:42,833
You know what we do
with child murderers here?

118
00:15:42,916 --> 00:15:44,458
You stupid asshole.

119
00:15:46,125 --> 00:15:49,083
You're just as small-minded
as everyone else in this shitty town.

120
00:15:49,958 --> 00:15:51,583
Let me go!

121
00:15:52,416 --> 00:15:55,666
Are you already drinking, or will you
start after your wife leaves you,

122
00:15:55,750 --> 00:15:58,041
and you realize
how pathetic and pitiful you are?

123
00:15:58,666 --> 00:16:00,250
Let me go! Let me go!

124
00:16:00,333 --> 00:16:02,291
Leave me! Let me out!

125
00:16:04,291 --> 00:16:07,000
I need to get to my son.
I have to find my son!

126
00:16:23,875 --> 00:16:25,541
I waited for you.

127
00:16:25,625 --> 00:16:26,708
On Thursday.

128
00:16:27,791 --> 00:16:30,416
-Yes, fuck...
-What do you mean "fuck"?

129
00:16:32,000 --> 00:16:34,375
I didn't tell anyone
you were in the nuthouse.

130
00:16:34,833 --> 00:16:36,166
I lied for you.

131
00:16:36,250 --> 00:16:37,875
France, baguettes...

132
00:16:38,208 --> 00:16:39,958
Blah, blah, blah...

133
00:16:40,708 --> 00:16:43,166
Turns out you lie pretty well yourself.

134
00:16:43,250 --> 00:16:44,583
You don't even need me.

135
00:16:45,958 --> 00:16:47,500
Martha told me everything.

136
00:16:49,166 --> 00:16:52,083
-It just happened. I really didn't...
-What didn't you want?

137
00:16:52,666 --> 00:16:53,666
To blow me off?

138
00:16:53,750 --> 00:16:55,041
To lie to me?

139
00:16:55,125 --> 00:16:56,666
To make out with my girlfriend?

140
00:16:56,750 --> 00:16:58,250
You're a sick piece of shit!

141
00:16:58,833 --> 00:17:00,000
Just like your dad.

142
00:17:13,458 --> 00:17:14,583
What are you doing?

143
00:17:16,541 --> 00:17:17,833
Have you lost it?

144
00:17:20,625 --> 00:17:22,333
Don't ever come back here!

145
00:17:23,083 --> 00:17:24,583
Get the hell out of here!

146
00:17:56,125 --> 00:17:57,833
You repaired it.

147
00:17:58,416 --> 00:17:59,833
That one's yours.

148
00:18:00,458 --> 00:18:02,083
And this one's mine.

149
00:18:02,875 --> 00:18:04,958
I built it many years ago.

150
00:18:06,375 --> 00:18:08,208
It's the same device,

151
00:18:08,291 --> 00:18:10,416
but in a different condition.

152
00:18:10,833 --> 00:18:12,000
You see.

153
00:18:14,166 --> 00:18:15,708
It's as if

154
00:18:15,791 --> 00:18:19,916
one could look at the beginning and end
of something at the same time.

155
00:18:21,291 --> 00:18:22,666
Wait a moment.

156
00:18:26,583 --> 00:18:28,333
This thing here

157
00:18:29,125 --> 00:18:32,708
it sends a kind of signal.

158
00:18:33,708 --> 00:18:36,791
An electromagnetic impulse.

159
00:18:37,333 --> 00:18:40,166
As if it were trying
to communicate with something.

160
00:18:40,250 --> 00:18:41,916
And look at this.

161
00:18:42,708 --> 00:18:45,541
This part has never moved.

162
00:18:45,625 --> 00:18:49,416
It was included in the blueprint,
but I never knew what it was for.

163
00:18:49,500 --> 00:18:52,750
This thing communicates with the device.

164
00:18:55,500 --> 00:18:58,916
It's not just the past
that influences the future.

165
00:18:59,708 --> 00:19:02,625
The future also influences the past.

166
00:19:03,583 --> 00:19:04,625
You see.

167
00:19:05,250 --> 00:19:09,291
If you hadn't shown me what the device
looks like in the future,

168
00:19:09,375 --> 00:19:11,333
I wouldn't have been able to build it.

169
00:19:12,541 --> 00:19:13,666
A paradox.

170
00:19:15,791 --> 00:19:17,375
These openings

171
00:19:18,166 --> 00:19:20,000
didn't exist either.

172
00:19:23,708 --> 00:19:25,916
I have no idea what their purpose is.

173
00:19:29,541 --> 00:19:30,625
What's that?

174
00:19:32,333 --> 00:19:34,583
Cs-137.

175
00:19:36,541 --> 00:19:38,958
A radioactive isotope of Cesium.

176
00:19:47,500 --> 00:19:50,416
The device generates a Higgs field.

177
00:19:51,666 --> 00:19:55,000
It increases the mass of the Cesium,

178
00:19:57,333 --> 00:20:00,416
An electromagnetic impulse causes it

179
00:20:00,500 --> 00:20:03,500
to implode into a black hole.

180
00:20:06,666 --> 00:20:10,041
The same thing must have happened
during the nuclear power plant incident.

181
00:20:12,458 --> 00:20:14,666
Why did you decide to help me after all?

182
00:20:15,541 --> 00:20:16,375
Why?

183
00:20:18,625 --> 00:20:20,208
That's a big word.

184
00:20:21,375 --> 00:20:25,208
Why do we decide for one thing
and against another?

185
00:20:26,333 --> 00:20:29,958
But does it matter
whether the decision is based upon

186
00:20:30,041 --> 00:20:35,208
the consequence
of a series of causal links?

187
00:20:35,291 --> 00:20:39,875
Or whether it stems from
an undefined feeling inside me?

188
00:20:41,583 --> 00:20:47,791
That perhaps everything in my life
boils down to this one moment.

189
00:20:48,875 --> 00:20:50,750
That I'm part of a puzzle.

190
00:20:51,583 --> 00:20:53,791
One that I can neither understand

191
00:20:54,875 --> 00:20:56,541
nor influence.

192
00:21:02,708 --> 00:21:04,125
Will you tell me...

193
00:21:04,958 --> 00:21:06,791
what the future's like?

194
00:21:10,416 --> 00:21:12,791
I'm hoping that by tomorrow,
it'll already be different from today.

195
00:21:26,541 --> 00:21:27,375
Yes?

196
00:21:27,791 --> 00:21:30,000
Your father was kidnapped as a kid, right?

197
00:21:30,083 --> 00:21:31,458
Do you remember when exactly?

198
00:21:33,083 --> 00:21:33,916
I...

199
00:21:34,958 --> 00:21:35,958
Can we talk? I...

200
00:21:36,666 --> 00:21:39,500
-I have to tell you something...
-When exactly? '53? '54?

201
00:21:42,708 --> 00:21:43,791
Fall of '53.

202
00:21:45,125 --> 00:21:46,000
'53.

203
00:21:47,416 --> 00:21:49,041
Exactly 66 years ago.

204
00:21:50,166 --> 00:21:51,833
Two times 33.

205
00:21:51,916 --> 00:21:54,041
-It's all connected.
-Listen, Charlotte, I...

206
00:21:54,625 --> 00:21:56,041
I have to talk to you.

207
00:21:56,708 --> 00:21:58,416
Later, okay? I've got to go.

208
00:22:51,750 --> 00:22:53,458
Can I help you?

209
00:23:04,750 --> 00:23:06,250
Were you looking for me?

210
00:23:08,125 --> 00:23:09,625
You have to stop.

211
00:23:13,958 --> 00:23:16,458
What do I have to stop?

212
00:23:17,000 --> 00:23:18,500
He's using you.

213
00:23:19,541 --> 00:23:21,708
All of his promises are lies.

214
00:23:24,166 --> 00:23:26,958
I think you're mistaking me
for someone else.

215
00:23:29,083 --> 00:23:31,666
I think you're mistaking me
for someone else.

216
00:23:32,500 --> 00:23:34,041
I've said that before.

217
00:23:37,833 --> 00:23:39,458
Everything Noah says

218
00:23:40,250 --> 00:23:41,750
is a lie.

219
00:23:42,250 --> 00:23:43,875
He's not the chosen one.

220
00:23:43,958 --> 00:23:45,458
You're not the chosen one.

221
00:23:46,041 --> 00:23:48,291
He doesn't want
to save the world from evil.

222
00:23:48,750 --> 00:23:50,250
He is evil.

223
00:23:52,291 --> 00:23:54,125
Today is the day.

224
00:23:54,958 --> 00:23:56,625
The beginning and the end.

225
00:23:57,250 --> 00:24:00,041
Don't make the same mistakes I made.

226
00:24:00,791 --> 00:24:03,750
Don't make the same mistakes I made.

227
00:24:06,000 --> 00:24:07,500
You have to stop.

228
00:24:10,875 --> 00:24:12,500
You have to stop!

229
00:24:29,958 --> 00:24:31,416
I have to stop.

230
00:25:17,208 --> 00:25:18,875
What happened to you?

231
00:25:24,708 --> 00:25:26,083
I got into a fight.

232
00:25:26,708 --> 00:25:27,708
What?

233
00:25:28,250 --> 00:25:29,541
With whom?

234
00:25:30,583 --> 00:25:32,208
It doesn't matter.

235
00:25:33,833 --> 00:25:35,583
What do you mean, it doesn't matter?

236
00:25:44,541 --> 00:25:45,625
Everything will be fine.

237
00:25:50,875 --> 00:25:52,541
I left something at school.

238
00:25:55,291 --> 00:25:57,541
Don't worry. Everything will be fine, Mom.

239
00:26:13,875 --> 00:26:15,750
Charlotte asked me about the cabin.

240
00:26:16,500 --> 00:26:17,791
And Helge.

241
00:26:19,583 --> 00:26:21,208
About what happened in '53.

242
00:26:23,750 --> 00:26:25,833
A few more hours, and it'll be over.

243
00:26:28,125 --> 00:26:29,625
Mads will live.

244
00:26:30,958 --> 00:26:31,916
Do you believe her?

245
00:26:34,666 --> 00:26:38,541
Everything she said would happen
has happened in the last eight days.

246
00:26:39,250 --> 00:26:41,166
Just as it's written here.

247
00:26:42,500 --> 00:26:44,791
Then why have half of the pages
been torn out?

248
00:26:49,916 --> 00:26:51,458
What happens after today?

249
00:26:52,250 --> 00:26:53,583
After today...

250
00:26:54,125 --> 00:26:55,416
everything will be new.

251
00:27:04,250 --> 00:27:06,750
But if there is no God,

252
00:27:07,291 --> 00:27:09,125
then why do we believe in a lie?

253
00:27:12,666 --> 00:27:15,541
Because we prefer any lie to the pain.

254
00:27:17,791 --> 00:27:20,708
Years ago, I was still a little boy.

255
00:27:20,791 --> 00:27:22,333
A stranger came to us.

256
00:27:24,333 --> 00:27:26,083
He looked as if he'd been in the war.

257
00:27:27,208 --> 00:27:28,541
Didn't talk much.

258
00:27:29,750 --> 00:27:32,416
There was this sadness in his eyes.

259
00:27:32,500 --> 00:27:34,875
The kind you sometimes see
in those who want to die,

260
00:27:34,958 --> 00:27:36,083
but life won't let them.

261
00:27:40,416 --> 00:27:41,916
He took a room in our house.

262
00:27:42,708 --> 00:27:44,333
The bedroom right next to mine.

263
00:27:44,416 --> 00:27:45,250
And...

264
00:27:46,458 --> 00:27:48,500
sometimes I heard him talk in his sleep.

265
00:27:49,958 --> 00:27:51,041
Confused words.

266
00:27:52,500 --> 00:27:55,125
But one night, he was suddenly very clear.

267
00:27:55,875 --> 00:27:57,416
He stood in the hallway,

268
00:27:57,500 --> 00:27:59,333
his eyes wide open, and said...

269
00:28:01,500 --> 00:28:03,458
"Nothing is in vain.

270
00:28:05,875 --> 00:28:07,166
Not a single breath.

271
00:28:08,083 --> 00:28:10,333
Not a single step, not a single word.

272
00:28:11,416 --> 00:28:12,458
Not pain.

273
00:28:13,666 --> 00:28:17,000
An eternal miracle of the One."

274
00:28:19,291 --> 00:28:21,208
I didn't understand any of his words.

275
00:28:23,750 --> 00:28:26,291
Only years later, when I felt the pain,

276
00:28:28,041 --> 00:28:29,708
did I understand what he meant.

277
00:28:32,041 --> 00:28:36,041
That none of the horrible things
that befall us should be in vain.

278
00:28:36,125 --> 00:28:37,458
That's my son!

279
00:28:37,541 --> 00:28:40,500
That they make us what we are.

280
00:28:41,250 --> 00:28:43,541
That they give us our strength.

281
00:28:47,666 --> 00:28:49,916
Your pain made you who you are, Helge.

282
00:28:52,708 --> 00:28:54,666
But it no longer has power over you.

283
00:29:08,333 --> 00:29:09,833
Who is next?

284
00:29:19,625 --> 00:29:21,208
Jonas Kahnwald.

285
00:29:39,000 --> 00:29:41,458
He'll be fine. Don't worry.

286
00:29:42,500 --> 00:29:44,166
You can always come and visit him.

287
00:29:46,375 --> 00:29:48,291
I'm taking you to your new home.

288
00:29:48,791 --> 00:29:50,958
There are lots of other children there.

289
00:29:57,791 --> 00:29:59,125
-Can you hear me?
-Come.

290
00:29:59,583 --> 00:30:00,416
Come.

291
00:30:08,958 --> 00:30:12,333
You know, I've made a decision.
I want to adopt him.

292
00:30:12,416 --> 00:30:16,000
And to take provisional custody
of him during the adoption procedure...

293
00:30:16,083 --> 00:30:17,375
I'm afraid it's not so easy.

294
00:30:17,458 --> 00:30:20,333
I have references. I own a home.

295
00:30:20,416 --> 00:30:24,083
-I...
-It's a very complicated process.

296
00:30:24,166 --> 00:30:25,166
I know.

297
00:30:25,250 --> 00:30:28,000
It may seem somewhat rash.

298
00:30:28,083 --> 00:30:29,291
But it isn't.

299
00:30:29,375 --> 00:30:32,333
-I can't just decide here...
-The boy likes me.

300
00:30:33,666 --> 00:30:35,083
He trusts me.

301
00:30:35,583 --> 00:30:38,750
I'm the only person
he lets close to him, and...

302
00:30:39,666 --> 00:30:41,125
And I...

303
00:30:42,833 --> 00:30:44,458
I like him, too.

304
00:31:01,500 --> 00:31:03,125
What day is it today?

305
00:31:06,708 --> 00:31:08,500
-The 12th.
-What year?

306
00:31:09,583 --> 00:31:10,416
'86.

307
00:31:13,500 --> 00:31:15,000
Are you from here?

308
00:31:19,333 --> 00:31:20,833
What are you doing here?

309
00:31:23,375 --> 00:31:24,875
Bringing someone back from the dead.

310
00:31:27,208 --> 00:31:28,250
How does that work?

311
00:31:29,916 --> 00:31:31,375
It's very hard to explain.

312
00:31:33,708 --> 00:31:35,125
Can you bring these back?

313
00:31:37,125 --> 00:31:39,083
No, you have to find them
when they're younger.

314
00:31:43,416 --> 00:31:45,000
But then they're not dead yet.

315
00:31:45,458 --> 00:31:47,541
That doesn't change the fact
that they will die.

316
00:31:52,875 --> 00:31:54,000
You're crazy.

317
00:31:55,458 --> 00:31:56,291
Maybe.

318
00:32:09,791 --> 00:32:11,708
"Helge Doppler. Nine years old.

319
00:32:11,791 --> 00:32:14,000
Went missing on November 10, 1953.

320
00:32:14,083 --> 00:32:17,208
The kidnapping is being linked
to an unknown person."

321
00:32:19,875 --> 00:32:20,750
Page five.

322
00:32:23,666 --> 00:32:26,166
IS THIS MAN A CHILD MURDERER?

323
00:32:56,291 --> 00:32:58,375
Let me go. Please!

324
00:33:00,375 --> 00:33:02,000
Please, let me go.

325
00:33:05,833 --> 00:33:07,333
Where is Helge?

326
00:33:15,416 --> 00:33:16,791
You don't want to talk?

327
00:33:17,583 --> 00:33:19,333
I'll teach you how to talk.

328
00:33:58,583 --> 00:33:59,500
Who are you?

329
00:34:56,083 --> 00:34:57,958
-There's no need to be afraid.
-Hey!

330
00:34:58,041 --> 00:35:00,750
Hey! What's this supposed to be?
What is this?

331
00:35:01,125 --> 00:35:02,791
Why did you lock me in here?

332
00:35:03,333 --> 00:35:04,833
It wasn't me.

333
00:35:04,916 --> 00:35:06,250
It was Noah.

334
00:35:06,333 --> 00:35:07,625
Who's Noah?

335
00:35:07,708 --> 00:35:09,250
Where am I? What is this?

336
00:35:10,166 --> 00:35:12,625
This is a kind of prototype
of a time machine.

337
00:35:13,416 --> 00:35:15,166
You're the guinea pig.

338
00:35:15,791 --> 00:35:18,583
The passage in the cave
lies directly under this bunker.

339
00:35:18,666 --> 00:35:21,041
If opened,
the energy flows through this room.

340
00:35:21,125 --> 00:35:22,833
But it needs to be increased.

341
00:35:23,583 --> 00:35:24,833
No DeLorean.

342
00:35:24,916 --> 00:35:26,416
No hissing or steam.

343
00:35:26,500 --> 00:35:29,250
The first time machine
is a bunker with four walls.

344
00:35:29,333 --> 00:35:31,125
But it still doesn't quite work.

345
00:35:32,000 --> 00:35:34,208
-Let me out of here.
-I can't.

346
00:35:35,125 --> 00:35:37,375
It's the only way for things
to be normal again.

347
00:35:37,458 --> 00:35:38,791
Who are you?

348
00:35:40,375 --> 00:35:41,791
You don't know?

349
00:35:46,333 --> 00:35:47,541
The letter.

350
00:35:48,083 --> 00:35:49,583
You burned it.

351
00:35:51,291 --> 00:35:53,041
And yet it still exists.

352
00:35:54,750 --> 00:35:59,125
You'll carry that letter for almost 33 years
before you pass it on.

353
00:36:00,541 --> 00:36:01,958
To yourself.

354
00:36:08,458 --> 00:36:09,833
I am you.

355
00:36:11,125 --> 00:36:13,333
My name is Jonas Kahnwald.

356
00:36:14,583 --> 00:36:16,333
I sent the letter to you.

357
00:36:17,083 --> 00:36:18,750
Or should I say, to me.

358
00:36:18,833 --> 00:36:21,416
Everything you're experiencing,
I've already experienced.

359
00:36:25,166 --> 00:36:28,916
I burned the letter, just like you.
I got it back from our grandmother.

360
00:36:29,000 --> 00:36:30,958
I've already had this conversation.

361
00:36:31,041 --> 00:36:32,875
But I was on the other side then.

362
00:36:34,250 --> 00:36:36,458
We think we're free, but we're not.

363
00:36:36,541 --> 00:36:38,458
We follow the same old path.

364
00:36:38,958 --> 00:36:40,333
Again and again.

365
00:36:40,416 --> 00:36:41,791
That's crazy!

366
00:36:43,083 --> 00:36:44,708
It doesn't make any sense!

367
00:36:46,083 --> 00:36:48,250
You can decide to let me go now.

368
00:36:50,375 --> 00:36:52,166
Come on, let me out!

369
00:36:52,250 --> 00:36:54,958
I thought it was crazy for a long time.
That I'm crazy.

370
00:36:57,125 --> 00:37:00,625
But I can't let you out because then
you won't become what I am today.

371
00:37:00,708 --> 00:37:03,958
If I now change my past,
I will change who I am right now.

372
00:37:04,041 --> 00:37:07,250
And then I won't be able
to destroy the hole once and for all.

373
00:37:10,000 --> 00:37:11,833
Why did you kiss Martha?

374
00:37:13,375 --> 00:37:17,583
We're not free in what we do,
because we're not free in what we want.

375
00:37:17,666 --> 00:37:20,750
-We can't overcome what's deep within us.
-Stop it.

376
00:37:20,833 --> 00:37:21,666
Stop.

377
00:37:25,416 --> 00:37:26,583
Please stop.

378
00:37:28,333 --> 00:37:29,833
I have to bring Mikkel back.

379
00:37:29,916 --> 00:37:32,000
I want everything to go back to normal.

380
00:37:35,083 --> 00:37:38,083
I want all this sick shit to stop!

381
00:37:38,166 --> 00:37:39,541
You still do.

382
00:37:39,625 --> 00:37:42,208
Thirty-three years later.
I still want that.

383
00:37:43,916 --> 00:37:45,083
But Mikkel...

384
00:37:45,833 --> 00:37:48,750
Our father is just a small part
of a sprawling sickness.

385
00:37:48,833 --> 00:37:51,375
I've seen things
that no one should ever see.

386
00:37:55,583 --> 00:37:56,958
I'm sorry.

387
00:38:02,041 --> 00:38:02,875
Wait.

388
00:38:03,208 --> 00:38:04,500
Hey! Hey!

389
00:38:05,541 --> 00:38:06,625
Stop!

390
00:38:08,791 --> 00:38:09,916
Hey!

391
00:38:39,541 --> 00:38:44,041
But a brief blink of an eye
And then returns the night

392
00:38:49,125 --> 00:38:53,666
Somehow the future starts somewhere
Sometime

393
00:38:53,750 --> 00:38:56,083
I won't wait for long

394
00:38:58,166 --> 00:39:02,291
Love is created through bravery
So don't think about it twice

395
00:39:02,375 --> 00:39:06,750
We ride on fiery wheels
Towards the future through the night

396
00:40:30,625 --> 00:40:37,125
THURSDAY, NOV 13, 1986:
SEVERE ACCIDENT AT INTERSECTION

397
00:40:44,625 --> 00:40:47,000
COME TO THE CABIN.
WE NEED TO TALK. PETER.

398
00:40:54,333 --> 00:40:56,500
WHAT DOES NOAH WANT?

399
00:41:04,666 --> 00:41:07,458
Everything is about to begin.

400
00:41:14,250 --> 00:41:17,125
The older Jonas
will destroy the hole, but...

401
00:41:17,875 --> 00:41:20,250
he doesn't realize that he will be the one

402
00:41:20,333 --> 00:41:22,250
to trigger its existence.

403
00:41:22,333 --> 00:41:24,083
A paradox.

404
00:41:24,458 --> 00:41:26,916
The cesium in his useless machine

405
00:41:27,000 --> 00:41:29,541
won't destroy the hole forever.

406
00:41:30,666 --> 00:41:34,333
It's what creates it in the first place.

407
00:41:35,416 --> 00:41:37,416
He thinks he's the savior.

408
00:41:38,333 --> 00:41:40,791
But Claudia lied to him.

409
00:41:42,500 --> 00:41:45,583
Most people are nothing
but pawns on a chessboard.

410
00:41:47,416 --> 00:41:49,333
Led by an unknown hand.

411
00:41:50,916 --> 00:41:54,166
Their lives exist
only to be sacrificed for a higher goal.

412
00:41:55,166 --> 00:41:57,208
Jonas, Mikkel, the children,

413
00:41:57,291 --> 00:42:01,416
they're nothing but unfortunate,
yet necessary chess moves

414
00:42:02,583 --> 00:42:05,583
in an eternal war between good and evil.

415
00:42:07,708 --> 00:42:12,541
There are two groups out there
fighting to control time travel.

416
00:42:12,625 --> 00:42:14,000
Light and shadow.

417
00:42:15,500 --> 00:42:17,291
We belong to the light.

418
00:42:17,375 --> 00:42:18,500
Don't forget that.

419
00:42:19,708 --> 00:42:23,333
Even though some of what we do
is of a dark nature.

420
00:42:24,041 --> 00:42:26,083
But no victory is ever won
without sacrifice.

421
00:42:27,458 --> 00:42:29,916
As long as we're in this time loop

422
00:42:30,000 --> 00:42:32,541
we who know have to make sure
that every step will be repeated

423
00:42:32,625 --> 00:42:34,625
exactly as it was before.

424
00:42:36,291 --> 00:42:38,125
No matter how inhumane it seems to us.

425
00:42:38,208 --> 00:42:41,250
No matter what sacrifices
it demands of us.

426
00:42:42,250 --> 00:42:43,916
But believe me,

427
00:42:44,375 --> 00:42:47,083
the others are the ones
who are truly inhumane.

428
00:42:48,708 --> 00:42:51,708
They have lost all humanity.
They belong to the shadow.

429
00:42:52,583 --> 00:42:55,916
Your grandmother, Claudia,
belongs to the shadow.

430
00:42:56,666 --> 00:42:58,291
Never trust her.

431
00:42:58,916 --> 00:43:00,291
No matter what she says.

432
00:43:00,375 --> 00:43:01,375
A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME

433
00:43:02,291 --> 00:43:05,375
Jonas trusted her before
and he will trust her again.

434
00:43:06,375 --> 00:43:08,708
Jonas thinks he will change everything...

435
00:43:08,791 --> 00:43:11,083
but he's just her puppet.

436
00:43:12,041 --> 00:43:13,833
He doesn't deserve any better.

437
00:43:22,833 --> 00:43:25,541
Time is an infinite field.

438
00:43:28,333 --> 00:43:31,458
Millions and millions
of interlocking wheels.

439
00:43:33,375 --> 00:43:36,416
We have to be patient to be victorious.

440
00:43:38,000 --> 00:43:39,625
But our time will come.

441
00:43:44,583 --> 00:43:47,666
We will free humanity from its immaturity.

442
00:43:49,041 --> 00:43:50,250
From its pain.

443
00:43:52,291 --> 00:43:54,041
But you must be strong.

444
00:43:55,125 --> 00:43:56,333
Can you do that?

445
00:44:01,458 --> 00:44:02,291
Yes.

446
00:44:12,166 --> 00:44:13,458
It's time.

447
00:47:55,625 --> 00:47:57,666
FOR MOTHER'S DAY 1986

448
00:48:38,416 --> 00:48:40,333
One, two...

449
00:49:00,083 --> 00:49:02,791
One, two, three.

450
00:52:51,333 --> 00:52:53,541
Hey, you. Hands up!

451
00:52:55,000 --> 00:52:56,083
On the ground!

452
00:52:59,166 --> 00:53:00,041
Who are you?

453
00:53:13,083 --> 00:53:14,000
Where am I?

454
00:53:15,333 --> 00:53:16,416
What year is this?

455
00:53:40,333 --> 00:53:41,916
Welcome to the future.

TRANSCRIPTION

1
00:00:09,250 --> 00:00:13,166
Man has always puzzled over his origin.

2
00:00:13,750 --> 00:00:15,166
His genesis.

3
00:00:15,750 --> 00:00:17,166
Created by God?

4
00:00:17,250 --> 00:00:20,166
Or a product of evolution?

5
00:00:21,250 --> 00:00:23,166
If we could see yesterday and tomorrow

6
00:00:23,250 --> 00:00:25,166
at the same time,

7
00:00:25,708 --> 00:00:28,166
the origin and the end,

8
00:00:28,250 --> 00:00:31,333
the entire universe in a single moment,

9
00:00:31,416 --> 00:00:34,333
we might finally find answers

10
00:00:34,416 --> 00:00:36,208
to the biggest questions of all.

11
00:00:37,166 --> 00:00:38,708
What is man?

12
00:00:38,791 --> 00:00:40,166
Where does he come from?

13
00:00:40,250 --> 00:00:42,041
What drives him?

14
00:00:43,166 --> 00:00:44,666
What is his purpose?

15
00:02:19,250 --> 00:02:24,291
EVERYTHING IS NOW

16
00:02:38,250 --> 00:02:42,250
AN IMPORTANT INVESTMENT
NUCLEAR POWER FOR EVERY HOUSEHOLD!

17
00:02:51,666 --> 00:02:54,291
The boys they found
at the construction site...

18
00:02:56,041 --> 00:02:58,375
Do you think
someone did the same thing with him?

19
00:02:58,458 --> 00:02:59,291
Or...

20
00:03:00,041 --> 00:03:03,583
maybe I gave him
too much of a scolding about the pants.

21
00:03:06,750 --> 00:03:08,791
Maybe that's why he ran away.

22
00:03:14,208 --> 00:03:15,583
Where are you going?

23
00:03:16,375 --> 00:03:17,625
To the police.

24
00:03:44,291 --> 00:03:45,125
Good morning.

25
00:03:47,166 --> 00:03:48,541
Doppler's here.

26
00:03:48,875 --> 00:03:50,083
In your office.

27
00:03:50,541 --> 00:03:51,916
Says his boy has disappeared.

28
00:03:52,458 --> 00:03:55,541
Maybe you were right
about there being more to come.

29
00:03:57,291 --> 00:03:58,833
There was a man here yesterday.

30
00:03:59,958 --> 00:04:01,875
He said that his son had disappeared.

31
00:04:02,541 --> 00:04:05,458
He wanted to know
if one of the dead children was his boy.

32
00:04:06,291 --> 00:04:07,750
What man?

33
00:04:07,833 --> 00:04:09,458
I don't know, but...

34
00:04:10,666 --> 00:04:12,291
he asked about Doppler's boy.

35
00:04:15,625 --> 00:04:17,916
Tell the officers and put out an APB.

36
00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:19,875
And not a word to Doppler!

37
00:04:26,375 --> 00:04:27,583
Mr. Doppler.

38
00:04:31,500 --> 00:04:35,708
Mr. Kahnwald told me that...
your son has gone missing.

39
00:04:36,750 --> 00:04:37,916
Yes, since yesterday.

40
00:04:39,083 --> 00:04:41,625
And when was that exactly?

41
00:04:41,708 --> 00:04:44,541
My wife said it was around three o'clock.

42
00:04:56,458 --> 00:04:58,083
Mr. Tiedemann.

43
00:04:58,416 --> 00:05:00,583
I want you to find my son.

44
00:05:01,208 --> 00:05:03,708
Whatever it costs.
I don't care about anything else.

45
00:05:04,125 --> 00:05:06,375
The nuclear plant, anything at all.

46
00:05:12,583 --> 00:05:14,875
Just bring me back my son.

47
00:05:19,416 --> 00:05:20,500
Gretchen!

48
00:05:22,208 --> 00:05:23,208
Gretchen!

49
00:05:24,083 --> 00:05:25,875
Here, Gretchen!

50
00:05:25,958 --> 00:05:26,958
Come here!

51
00:05:28,125 --> 00:05:29,541
Gretchen!

52
00:05:32,958 --> 00:05:36,000
You almost look like James Dean
with that haircut.

53
00:05:36,083 --> 00:05:38,708
The girls in Winden
will be after you in droves.

54
00:05:38,791 --> 00:05:40,041
You'll see.

55
00:05:42,125 --> 00:05:43,416
Do you have a girlfriend?

56
00:05:48,750 --> 00:05:51,000
Why did you leave where you come from?

57
00:05:52,041 --> 00:05:53,583
Are you bank robbers on the run?

58
00:05:57,083 --> 00:05:59,041
My mother wanted a change.

59
00:05:59,916 --> 00:06:04,500
Your mother is a very beautiful woman.
I've never seen anyone so elegant.

60
00:06:10,500 --> 00:06:14,166
I feel like the Queen of England
has invited me to tea.

61
00:06:17,583 --> 00:06:18,625
Turn around.

62
00:06:35,500 --> 00:06:36,458
You're beautiful.

63
00:06:39,041 --> 00:06:41,333
The Queen would be glad to have you visit.

64
00:06:44,875 --> 00:06:45,875
It's yours.

65
00:06:48,625 --> 00:06:50,875
No. What would Egon say?

66
00:06:50,958 --> 00:06:52,500
What could he say?

67
00:06:58,625 --> 00:07:00,875
How long were you married?

68
00:07:00,958 --> 00:07:02,291
Fifteen years.

69
00:07:02,791 --> 00:07:04,958
It's been nearly ten for Egon and me.

70
00:07:06,416 --> 00:07:08,500
But somehow everything has changed.

71
00:07:09,666 --> 00:07:11,208
He has changed.

72
00:07:11,833 --> 00:07:14,416
He's not home as much as he used to be.

73
00:07:15,166 --> 00:07:16,416
His work.

74
00:07:18,291 --> 00:07:20,500
What kind of work did your husband do?

75
00:07:21,500 --> 00:07:22,750
He was a pastor.

76
00:07:23,500 --> 00:07:25,875
But I can't say he was a man of faith.

77
00:07:27,750 --> 00:07:29,208
Do you miss him a lot?

78
00:07:31,583 --> 00:07:33,208
He wasn't a good person.

79
00:07:34,041 --> 00:07:36,041
Sometimes I think it's good he's dead.

80
00:07:38,000 --> 00:07:39,333
And that I'm free.

81
00:07:42,333 --> 00:07:44,375
I can't accept it. I'd better take it off.

82
00:07:47,208 --> 00:07:49,500
I prayed to God

83
00:07:50,000 --> 00:07:53,750
to get rid of the child
before it was ever born.

84
00:07:55,125 --> 00:07:58,541
And after I had him, I prayed every day

85
00:07:59,041 --> 00:08:01,208
that something would befall him.

86
00:08:02,083 --> 00:08:04,250
Because he may not be Bernd's child.

87
00:08:10,916 --> 00:08:14,541
Because maybe he wasn't a child
created out of love, but...

88
00:08:21,500 --> 00:08:23,291
That's what's in my head.

89
00:08:24,958 --> 00:08:26,541
Every day.

90
00:08:26,625 --> 00:08:28,750
I can't escape it.

91
00:08:31,833 --> 00:08:33,458
It's my fault.

92
00:08:35,166 --> 00:08:36,958
We are all full of sin.

93
00:08:39,416 --> 00:08:42,708
No pure human being exists.

94
00:08:46,083 --> 00:08:48,000
But no matter what we do,

95
00:08:48,083 --> 00:08:51,500
we never fall any lower
than into God's hands.

96
00:08:56,791 --> 00:08:59,041
And what if they aren't God's hands?

97
00:09:00,041 --> 00:09:02,625
What if they are the hands of the devil?

98
00:09:02,708 --> 00:09:06,208
God sent me to you. Did he not?

99
00:09:06,291 --> 00:09:08,958
We don't meet the people we meet
by accident.

100
00:09:10,500 --> 00:09:14,416
We touch the lives of others
and are touched ourselves,

101
00:09:14,500 --> 00:09:19,500
and thus God's hands guide us
to our true destiny.

102
00:09:21,833 --> 00:09:23,291
Let us pray.

103
00:09:25,375 --> 00:09:28,416
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,

104
00:09:28,750 --> 00:09:30,583
I will fear no evil...

105
00:09:31,916 --> 00:09:33,875
for you are with me...

106
00:09:38,541 --> 00:09:40,875
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

107
00:09:41,708 --> 00:09:45,208
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.

108
00:09:46,333 --> 00:09:50,166
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

109
00:09:50,250 --> 00:09:54,625
Surely your goodness and love
will follow me all the days of my life,

110
00:09:54,708 --> 00:09:57,541
and I will dwell
in the house of the Lord forever.

111
00:10:17,875 --> 00:10:19,125
Stop there!

112
00:10:22,375 --> 00:10:23,208
Stop!

113
00:10:24,416 --> 00:10:25,708
Police!

114
00:10:27,708 --> 00:10:28,541
Stop!

115
00:10:30,333 --> 00:10:31,166
Stop!

116
00:10:32,625 --> 00:10:33,916
Stop! Police!

117
00:10:59,875 --> 00:11:01,250
Stop!

118
00:11:05,541 --> 00:11:06,708
Hands up!

119
00:11:08,958 --> 00:11:12,541
What did you do to the two boys
at the construction site?

120
00:11:13,708 --> 00:11:15,000
Where's Helge?

121
00:11:15,083 --> 00:11:16,250
That was you too.

122
00:11:17,000 --> 00:11:19,750
The two boys? That's impossible.

123
00:11:21,125 --> 00:11:24,791
They can't be there. I changed that.

124
00:11:24,875 --> 00:11:26,000
What did you change?

125
00:11:29,625 --> 00:11:30,833
The course of time.

126
00:11:31,416 --> 00:11:32,250
Helge's dead.

127
00:11:33,083 --> 00:11:34,875
Helge will never be able to kill again.

128
00:11:35,375 --> 00:11:36,750
You're a madman!

129
00:11:37,750 --> 00:11:38,833
Go on, turn around.

130
00:11:39,541 --> 00:11:40,375
Turn around!

131
00:11:41,375 --> 00:11:43,333
Down! On your knees!

132
00:11:46,458 --> 00:11:47,333
But I changed it.

133
00:11:49,250 --> 00:11:50,083
Get up!

134
00:11:50,750 --> 00:11:51,750
But I changed it.

135
00:13:11,375 --> 00:13:12,250
Piss off.

136
00:13:13,083 --> 00:13:15,875
I just wanted to know,
is Ulrich still in prison?

137
00:13:17,375 --> 00:13:19,125
They have to release him today.

138
00:13:21,541 --> 00:13:24,500
Did Tiedemann say who told him?

139
00:13:30,125 --> 00:13:31,958
And you and Ulrich?

140
00:13:32,916 --> 00:13:34,708
-What about us?
-I don't know.

141
00:13:34,791 --> 00:13:37,458
Won't your mom freak out
if you keep seeing him?

142
00:13:37,541 --> 00:13:39,166
I don't care.

143
00:13:39,250 --> 00:13:42,541
Nobody's going to come between us.
That's love, you know.

144
00:13:43,250 --> 00:13:46,333
It's stronger than hate.
But you don't get that yet.

145
00:13:49,833 --> 00:13:52,208
If I find out who told the cops that...

146
00:13:52,958 --> 00:13:54,500
I'm going to clobber them.

147
00:13:59,083 --> 00:14:01,833
Maybe it was Regina.

148
00:14:02,333 --> 00:14:04,833
I mean, Tiedemann is her grandfather.

149
00:14:06,833 --> 00:14:08,041
See you.

150
00:14:33,250 --> 00:14:35,833
I've been a police officer
for over 40 years.

151
00:14:38,041 --> 00:14:39,541
Your face.

152
00:14:39,625 --> 00:14:42,500
Your stare. I know that stare.

153
00:14:43,291 --> 00:14:46,000
I know that you've got something to hide.

154
00:14:48,083 --> 00:14:51,166
That you've got
something to do with all of this.

155
00:14:51,250 --> 00:14:54,500
-I can feel it in my bones.
-Maybe it's cancer.

156
00:14:55,250 --> 00:14:57,375
You might want to get that checked out.

157
00:15:16,541 --> 00:15:18,875
I want you to stay away from our family.

158
00:15:19,666 --> 00:15:22,958
And I'm going to make sure
you're taken off Mads' case.

159
00:16:36,708 --> 00:16:38,125
Gretchen?

160
00:16:49,750 --> 00:16:51,708
I can't believe you were in jail.

161
00:16:52,625 --> 00:16:54,125
That's really harsh.

162
00:17:03,791 --> 00:17:05,916
Why does Tiedemann have it in for you?

163
00:17:06,291 --> 00:17:08,416
He thinks I'm the Antichrist.

164
00:17:18,791 --> 00:17:20,208
Hey, Tiedemann!

165
00:17:20,791 --> 00:17:21,708
Damn four-eyes!

166
00:17:25,500 --> 00:17:29,333
I know what you did.
You trying to get me back for the summer?

167
00:17:29,416 --> 00:17:32,666
It was a game. We wouldn't have left you
hanging there all night.

168
00:17:32,750 --> 00:17:35,583
We couldn't have known
you were so damn fragile!

169
00:17:37,416 --> 00:17:38,625
I have to go.

170
00:17:39,833 --> 00:17:42,916
See this? My mom did this. And why?

171
00:17:43,583 --> 00:17:46,916
-Because you fed your grandpa bullshit!
-I didn't. Honest.

172
00:17:47,000 --> 00:17:49,916
Rape!
Is that the best you could come up with?

173
00:17:50,000 --> 00:17:51,250
Come on, Katharina!

174
00:17:54,000 --> 00:17:55,541
You make me sick!

175
00:18:03,250 --> 00:18:05,708
-Where are you going?
-Hey, stop!

176
00:18:06,166 --> 00:18:09,291
-Screw off! It's none of your business.
-I told you to stop.

177
00:18:11,000 --> 00:18:12,666
And I told you to screw off.

178
00:18:15,208 --> 00:18:16,458
Apologize to her.

179
00:18:20,875 --> 00:18:23,041
I said you should apologize.

180
00:18:26,708 --> 00:18:28,583
And how do I know it's real?

181
00:18:38,041 --> 00:18:40,583
You two get the hell out of here,
and fast.

182
00:18:40,666 --> 00:18:42,708
And if you hurt her again,

183
00:18:43,416 --> 00:18:44,583
I'll finish you.

184
00:18:58,625 --> 00:19:00,250
Everything's okay.

185
00:19:05,666 --> 00:19:06,583
Thanks.

186
00:19:14,041 --> 00:19:15,083
You're bleeding.

187
00:19:19,666 --> 00:19:22,833
-It's not so bad.
-You have to see a doctor.

188
00:19:30,416 --> 00:19:31,916
We have bandages at home.

189
00:19:32,583 --> 00:19:34,416
My mother isn't home.

190
00:19:34,500 --> 00:19:35,750
I can do it.

191
00:19:40,458 --> 00:19:41,708
What's your name?

192
00:19:43,833 --> 00:19:45,333
Aleksander.

193
00:20:03,833 --> 00:20:06,166
Tell me exactly what happened
in the summer.

194
00:20:06,250 --> 00:20:08,083
I already told you.

195
00:20:08,166 --> 00:20:09,333
An incident.

196
00:20:09,875 --> 00:20:13,125
-In the volume control system.
-That's not good enough for me.

197
00:20:15,000 --> 00:20:19,041
The connections to the chemical
feed-in system were corroded.

198
00:20:19,125 --> 00:20:23,208
Hydrogen gas must have collected
in one of the tubes.

199
00:20:23,291 --> 00:20:24,125
Boom!

200
00:20:24,791 --> 00:20:26,833
It wasn't a precaution.

201
00:20:27,500 --> 00:20:30,833
-That's why the tubes were changed.
-It is what we make of it.

202
00:20:31,166 --> 00:20:33,208
And what the reports say.

203
00:20:36,125 --> 00:20:37,625
We were lucky.

204
00:20:38,208 --> 00:20:41,541
Only an insignificant amount
of radioactive material leaked out.

205
00:20:41,625 --> 00:20:46,583
We had the entire floor removed
and stored everything in a safe place.

206
00:20:46,666 --> 00:20:48,000
You call that a safe place?

207
00:20:48,083 --> 00:20:51,833
As safe as any other
official interim storage facility.

208
00:20:59,541 --> 00:21:02,625
-Who knows about it?
-It happened during the nightshift.

209
00:21:03,000 --> 00:21:06,500
The shift supervisor,
a handful of employees, Helge.

210
00:21:08,833 --> 00:21:12,500
No one will talk,
they all got a fat bonus.

211
00:21:13,125 --> 00:21:15,541
Don't make
a bigger deal out of it than it is.

212
00:21:21,083 --> 00:21:22,250
In the night...

213
00:21:26,333 --> 00:21:29,416
Was there more? Did anything else happen?

214
00:21:29,500 --> 00:21:30,750
Anything strange?

215
00:21:32,083 --> 00:21:33,583
In the cave, anything...

216
00:21:34,166 --> 00:21:38,625
-Anything the explosion may have...
-Just what might have happened there?

217
00:21:43,291 --> 00:21:47,833
Do you believe that Hannibal
marched over the Alps with elephants?

218
00:21:49,666 --> 00:21:52,708
There are no truths, just stories.

219
00:21:53,166 --> 00:21:56,291
And the story of this city
is now in your hands.

220
00:21:57,125 --> 00:21:59,291
Is our power plant safe?

221
00:21:59,375 --> 00:22:02,791
Can something like Chernobyl
happen in our plant?

222
00:22:03,291 --> 00:22:07,208
You decide what story you want to tell.

223
00:22:40,291 --> 00:22:43,666
10:30 A.M. INTERVIEW: HELGE DOPPLER
WHY NOT FOREST PATH?

224
00:23:58,375 --> 00:23:59,208
Helge?

225
00:24:01,083 --> 00:24:02,083
Helge!

226
00:26:06,958 --> 00:26:08,291
Aleksander Köhler.

227
00:26:09,791 --> 00:26:13,583
Born January 21, 1965.

228
00:26:53,166 --> 00:26:56,541
A young man is here to see you.
He said he's your daughter's friend.

229
00:26:57,000 --> 00:26:58,375
-Her friend?
-Yes.

230
00:26:58,458 --> 00:27:01,583
He's looking for work,
if I understood him correctly.

231
00:27:02,250 --> 00:27:03,083
Yes.

232
00:27:14,500 --> 00:27:15,791
I'm Aleksander.

233
00:27:16,916 --> 00:27:20,000
So you're a friend of my daughter's?

234
00:27:21,625 --> 00:27:24,500
And all this time
I thought she didn't care about boys.

235
00:27:27,208 --> 00:27:29,500
I'm new in town. Looking for work.

236
00:27:30,291 --> 00:27:33,083
Regina told me
you might be able to help me.

237
00:27:33,166 --> 00:27:35,541
-Do you have training?
-I'm a metalworker.

238
00:27:36,000 --> 00:27:37,666
I can work. Hard.

239
00:27:38,208 --> 00:27:39,208
I'm a fast learner.

240
00:27:40,916 --> 00:27:42,208
You're not from here?

241
00:27:43,125 --> 00:27:44,750
All I'm asking for is a chance.

242
00:27:47,583 --> 00:27:48,500
I'm sorry.

243
00:27:48,583 --> 00:27:50,625
We don't need anyone at the moment.

244
00:27:56,291 --> 00:27:59,291
But maybe we will soon.
Where can I reach you?

245
00:28:00,625 --> 00:28:03,041
I'll just come by again tomorrow.

246
00:28:45,083 --> 00:28:46,583
Why doesn't it work?

247
00:28:47,458 --> 00:28:50,125
It will. Be patient.

248
00:28:51,291 --> 00:28:53,708
Do you think Einstein
would have given up so fast?

249
00:28:54,625 --> 00:28:58,541
It is the fate of pioneers
to persistently pursue their aim.

250
00:28:58,625 --> 00:29:00,875
To believe, although no one believes.

251
00:29:03,125 --> 00:29:04,250
I don't want to do this anymore.

252
00:29:07,375 --> 00:29:09,666
Why would God want any of this?

253
00:29:11,708 --> 00:29:12,541
Yes.

254
00:29:16,041 --> 00:29:17,916
Why would God want any of this?

255
00:29:21,041 --> 00:29:25,250
After looking into hell,
as you have, it can never be forgotten.

256
00:29:25,333 --> 00:29:26,625
It becomes a part of you.

257
00:29:28,208 --> 00:29:32,833
And the idea of God, of Jesus the Savior,
becomes a thread of hope you cling to.

258
00:29:36,083 --> 00:29:39,458
All of us who know the darkness
long for the light, but...

259
00:29:39,541 --> 00:29:41,416
there is no God!

260
00:29:41,500 --> 00:29:43,708
God didn't make this hole among us.

261
00:29:43,791 --> 00:29:45,041
God doesn't have a plan.

262
00:29:45,750 --> 00:29:48,166
There is no plan at all.

263
00:29:48,250 --> 00:29:50,333
There's nothing but chaos out there.

264
00:29:51,708 --> 00:29:52,583
Pain...

265
00:29:53,541 --> 00:29:54,958
and chaos!

266
00:30:08,250 --> 00:30:09,958
People are bad.

267
00:30:10,041 --> 00:30:11,958
Malicious, evil.

268
00:30:13,750 --> 00:30:16,458
Life is nothing but a spiral of pain.

269
00:30:18,208 --> 00:30:20,583
And the world is doomed to be destroyed.

270
00:30:20,666 --> 00:30:22,083
But this here...

271
00:30:23,291 --> 00:30:25,041
This is our ark.

272
00:30:26,000 --> 00:30:27,541
And I'm Noah.

273
00:30:28,333 --> 00:30:31,166
If we can harness this energy,
we can change everything.

274
00:30:31,250 --> 00:30:33,083
Then we decide the world's fate,

275
00:30:33,166 --> 00:30:36,833
far removed from all the evil
and from all pain.

276
00:30:39,208 --> 00:30:41,250
We'll create a time machine

277
00:30:43,708 --> 00:30:47,833
that reorders everything,
the beginning and the end.

278
00:32:00,583 --> 00:32:05,000
Charlotte, the question isn't
who kidnapped the children, but when?

279
00:32:05,083 --> 00:32:09,750
I was right. Helge Doppler.
Not now, but in 1986.

280
00:32:09,833 --> 00:32:12,041
Call me back immediately
when you hear this.

281
00:32:15,666 --> 00:32:17,041
Where's Ulrich?

282
00:32:17,125 --> 00:32:18,333
I thought he was with you.

283
00:32:19,166 --> 00:32:21,625
I tried to reach him,
but his phone is off.

284
00:32:21,708 --> 00:32:24,916
-Was he not here yesterday either?
-Don't you know?

285
00:32:25,291 --> 00:32:27,750
-Do I know what?
-He's suspended.

286
00:32:28,458 --> 00:32:31,166
I thought it was better
if he was with you guys.

287
00:32:31,250 --> 00:32:33,333
It's better if he's with us?

288
00:32:33,416 --> 00:32:36,041
You think we sit at home holding hands?

289
00:32:36,583 --> 00:32:37,916
I'm an idiot!

290
00:32:38,000 --> 00:32:41,125
Our son is missing, and he's got
nothing better to do than screw that slut.

291
00:32:47,291 --> 00:32:49,791
No, Charlotte, it isn't better this way!

292
00:33:16,083 --> 00:33:17,083
I have to go.

293
00:33:28,708 --> 00:33:29,541
Here.

294
00:33:31,916 --> 00:33:33,208
Where did you get it?

295
00:33:34,125 --> 00:33:35,958
I found it under the bridge.

296
00:33:36,458 --> 00:33:40,125
Just because we fuck doesn't mean
you have to know everything about me.

297
00:33:45,750 --> 00:33:47,500
I don't want to hurt you, okay?

298
00:33:48,375 --> 00:33:50,000
I want to know who you are.

299
00:33:51,000 --> 00:33:52,375
Who you really are.

300
00:34:00,750 --> 00:34:02,166
Not today, okay?

301
00:34:33,958 --> 00:34:36,875
Hey, it's me.
Call me back, for crying out loud!

302
00:34:46,041 --> 00:34:47,291
Franziska?

303
00:34:48,000 --> 00:34:49,208
Martha.

304
00:35:04,708 --> 00:35:07,541
Why is it that we all keep secrets
from one another?

305
00:35:11,083 --> 00:35:13,250
Some things
you just want to keep to yourself.

306
00:35:27,833 --> 00:35:30,291
-Katharina! This is a surprise.
-Where is he?

307
00:35:31,166 --> 00:35:32,250
Who?

308
00:35:33,833 --> 00:35:35,958
Don't act so stupid. Ulrich!

309
00:35:36,541 --> 00:35:37,833
Is he here?

310
00:35:38,708 --> 00:35:39,541
No.

311
00:35:40,333 --> 00:35:41,958
Why would he be here?

312
00:35:42,958 --> 00:35:44,958
You lying piece of shit!

313
00:35:46,333 --> 00:35:48,125
How long has it been going on?

314
00:35:48,208 --> 00:35:50,583
A month? Half a year?

315
00:35:50,666 --> 00:35:51,833
Or longer?

316
00:35:53,541 --> 00:35:54,375
I...

317
00:35:55,375 --> 00:35:57,416
-I...
-I... I... I... !

318
00:35:58,125 --> 00:36:02,125
I don't know where my son is!
And I don't know where my husband is!

319
00:36:02,208 --> 00:36:04,541
My husband! Do you understand?

320
00:36:07,041 --> 00:36:08,583
Did you fuck here?

321
00:36:10,625 --> 00:36:11,958
Or here?

322
00:36:12,041 --> 00:36:13,041
Here!

323
00:36:13,500 --> 00:36:16,166
Or in my house? In my bed?

324
00:36:16,250 --> 00:36:17,541
He isn't here.

325
00:36:19,666 --> 00:36:21,000
Is it fun for you?

326
00:36:22,166 --> 00:36:23,000
Yeah?

327
00:36:23,250 --> 00:36:26,375
Does it turn you on?
Destroying the lives of others?

328
00:36:26,458 --> 00:36:28,500
My life and my children's lives?

329
00:36:29,500 --> 00:36:33,041
Did you think about that when you
stuck your scrawny ass out for him?

330
00:36:41,583 --> 00:36:42,708
It's over.

331
00:36:45,250 --> 00:36:46,458
It's over.

332
00:37:17,583 --> 00:37:19,041
I ended it.

333
00:37:24,625 --> 00:37:26,458
I never wanted any of it.

334
00:37:29,708 --> 00:37:30,541
But...

335
00:37:31,583 --> 00:37:33,291
he just didn't let up.

336
00:37:35,041 --> 00:37:36,500
You know how he can be.

337
00:37:39,125 --> 00:37:40,666
He wanted to leave you.

338
00:37:42,625 --> 00:37:45,541
I told him that was crazy.

339
00:37:47,916 --> 00:37:49,958
He said that he didn't love you anymore.

340
00:37:52,583 --> 00:37:54,416
That he loves me.

341
00:37:59,458 --> 00:38:02,208
But I want you to know
that it's over now, Katharina.

342
00:38:06,541 --> 00:38:07,916
It's over.

343
00:38:54,250 --> 00:38:55,333
Can I help you?

344
00:38:56,625 --> 00:38:58,250
You must be Bartosz.

345
00:38:58,916 --> 00:39:00,500
I'm Claudia, your grandmother.

346
00:39:01,916 --> 00:39:03,125
Is your mother home?

347
00:39:04,750 --> 00:39:07,625
My mother told me
you died before I was born.

348
00:39:07,708 --> 00:39:11,083
I'm sure your mother
told you lots of stories about me.

349
00:39:11,791 --> 00:39:13,333
Only some of them are true.

350
00:39:15,916 --> 00:39:18,000
It looks much different than it did.

351
00:39:18,083 --> 00:39:19,875
There was no addition.

352
00:39:20,916 --> 00:39:23,416
Why did Mom tell me you're dead?

353
00:39:23,500 --> 00:39:25,625
For your mom, I'm sure I am.

354
00:39:28,750 --> 00:39:31,125
I wasn't a particularly good mother,
you know.

355
00:39:32,333 --> 00:39:34,291
You're a lot like the two of them.

356
00:39:35,083 --> 00:39:36,333
Your eyes.

357
00:39:36,958 --> 00:39:38,083
Your chin.

358
00:39:38,916 --> 00:39:41,208
You look a lot like your parents.

359
00:39:47,791 --> 00:39:49,333
If you're not dead,

360
00:39:50,958 --> 00:39:52,458
where were you all these years?

361
00:39:54,500 --> 00:39:56,166
That's a long story.

362
00:39:56,708 --> 00:39:58,500
Maybe I'll tell you one day.

363
00:39:58,583 --> 00:40:00,625
Regina won't be home till late.

364
00:40:00,708 --> 00:40:03,208
-Are you going to wait or...?
-Not today.

365
00:40:04,416 --> 00:40:06,208
I have to take care of something.

366
00:40:09,791 --> 00:40:13,416
I want you to give her this.
Will you do that for me?

367
00:40:15,791 --> 00:40:17,750
That was before.

368
00:40:18,250 --> 00:40:21,291
Before that summer
and everything else that followed it.

369
00:40:24,208 --> 00:40:26,916
I made lots of mistakes back then.

370
00:40:30,125 --> 00:40:32,958
Believe me, if I could turn back time,

371
00:40:33,833 --> 00:40:36,000
I would do lots of things differently.

372
00:41:15,041 --> 00:41:16,666
Yes, that's good.

373
00:41:17,958 --> 00:41:19,291
That's good.

374
00:41:19,833 --> 00:41:21,250
Just a second.

375
00:41:42,750 --> 00:41:44,375
Do you recognize it?

376
00:41:45,833 --> 00:41:48,750
All these years
I've wondered why I kept it.

377
00:41:50,250 --> 00:41:52,500
But there's a time for everything.

378
00:41:54,083 --> 00:41:55,583
Don't worry.

379
00:41:56,041 --> 00:41:58,041
The contents are in safe keeping.

380
00:41:59,250 --> 00:42:00,875
What do you want?

381
00:42:00,958 --> 00:42:04,291
Why do some people have everything
and some nothing?

382
00:42:06,041 --> 00:42:08,375
Why do you and Regina
have a beautiful home

383
00:42:08,458 --> 00:42:10,541
and I can't even pay my electrical bill?

384
00:42:12,083 --> 00:42:16,166
Why does fate predestine
a good life for some and not for others?

385
00:42:16,250 --> 00:42:19,250
-Do you want money?
-I don't want any money.

386
00:42:19,333 --> 00:42:21,541
I want you to do me a favor.

387
00:42:24,375 --> 00:42:26,166
I want you to destroy Ulrich.

388
00:42:29,166 --> 00:42:30,541
I want him to lose everything.

389
00:42:34,208 --> 00:42:35,291
Everything.

390
00:42:43,458 --> 00:42:46,333
How am I supposed to do that?
What do you have in mind?

391
00:42:48,875 --> 00:42:53,166
I don't give a damn how you do it
or who you pay, just destroy him!

392
00:42:58,791 --> 00:43:00,458
Boris Niewald.

393
00:43:01,291 --> 00:43:04,625
Interesting name.
I think it suits you much better.

394
00:43:42,375 --> 00:43:43,208
Hello.

395
00:43:44,958 --> 00:43:45,791
Hello.

396
00:43:52,333 --> 00:43:54,791
-I have to go.
-You have to go?

397
00:43:56,958 --> 00:43:59,000
Can you tell me what's going on?

398
00:44:00,000 --> 00:44:03,083
I've been trying to reach you for days,
and you don't even write back!

399
00:44:11,583 --> 00:44:13,000
What was that after rehearsal?

400
00:44:18,000 --> 00:44:19,375
You just make out with me.

401
00:44:19,791 --> 00:44:23,500
Did you think, "The chick's unstable,
so I'll take what I can get"?

402
00:44:27,958 --> 00:44:29,708
God, say something!

403
00:44:41,708 --> 00:44:43,000
It was wrong.

404
00:44:44,083 --> 00:44:46,541
-What was wrong?
-The thing with us.

405
00:44:49,041 --> 00:44:50,458
It wasn't right.

406
00:44:55,916 --> 00:44:57,375
Because of Bartosz?

407
00:45:01,375 --> 00:45:03,041
No, not because of Bartosz.

408
00:45:04,916 --> 00:45:06,208
Because of us.

409
00:45:07,958 --> 00:45:08,791
It...

410
00:45:14,541 --> 00:45:16,458
We're just not a good match, okay?

411
00:45:20,208 --> 00:45:21,708
We're not a good match?

412
00:45:22,375 --> 00:45:24,291
Yeah, we're not a good match.

413
00:45:26,291 --> 00:45:28,041
The whole thing is wrong.

414
00:45:29,750 --> 00:45:31,250
We're wrong.

415
00:45:54,833 --> 00:45:56,458
So this is wrong?

416
00:46:05,291 --> 00:46:06,666
I'm sorry.

417
00:46:16,416 --> 00:46:18,666
I want you to do me a favor.

418
00:46:19,541 --> 00:46:22,500
I need information on Ulrich Nielsen.

419
00:46:22,583 --> 00:46:25,041
-Anything that could be useful.
-Okay.

420
00:46:26,125 --> 00:46:27,833
And what'll we do with the truck?

421
00:46:27,916 --> 00:46:29,208
In a few days,

422
00:46:29,916 --> 00:46:31,750
when everything has calmed down,

423
00:46:32,083 --> 00:46:34,041
we'll bring the barrels back.

424
00:47:48,208 --> 00:47:50,541
WHEN IS MIKKEL?

425
00:48:40,208 --> 00:48:41,708
You were right.

426
00:48:42,875 --> 00:48:45,500
Everything you predicted has happened.

427
00:48:51,125 --> 00:48:53,416
Did you think about my offer?

428
00:48:59,375 --> 00:49:00,208
Yes.

429
00:49:06,250 --> 00:49:09,625
I have work for you, but on one condition.

430
00:49:09,708 --> 00:49:11,541
You can't speak of it.

431
00:49:12,666 --> 00:49:14,041
With anyone.

432
00:49:15,875 --> 00:49:17,208
When do I start?

433
00:49:56,500 --> 00:50:00,291
Blowjob, 50 euros.
You can feel me up between the legs too.

434
00:50:04,166 --> 00:50:05,291
Well, forget it then.

435
00:50:05,708 --> 00:50:07,708
You have no idea what you're missing.

436
00:51:23,708 --> 00:51:24,708
Can I help you?

437
00:51:32,250 --> 00:51:34,000
We're actually closed.

438
00:51:37,083 --> 00:51:40,208
I think I have something
that could interest you.

439
00:51:47,708 --> 00:51:49,666
I want you to build this for me.

440
00:51:51,583 --> 00:51:53,166
What's that supposed to be?

441
00:51:56,083 --> 00:51:59,791
It's something
that will set the course of time straight.
