PHONE RINGS

# Has gone and done me,
oh, so wrong #



Hi.

Mary still sleeping?

She's gone.

Really?

With him?

HE SIGHS

Did she call him or did he call her?

She was calling him.

Off and on all night.

And she's given him your address.

That's worrying.

I'm not worried.

You're not?

How can Mary look at what Puss
did to you and still love him?



I need to tell you something.

Last night I picked
her up from the underpass.

Yeah?

Hang on, you mean...

You mean the hookers' strip?

Yes.

He's prostituting her?

HE SIGHS

I should do these dishes.

HE SNIFFS

Are you breathing?

Just breathe.

Oh.

How can he want to hurt Mary?

I don't know.

He's made a bad move there.

Mary won't tolerate it.

Prostituting her -
it won't compute.

I've thought about arresting him
but I can't hold him.

Or I'll kill him.

I'll get him fucked up,
I've got contacts.

DOOR BUZZER

Yeah. OK.

Got your body map? Yup.

Get him a seat, please.

This is your body map?

Describe the hair length,
say what's on your drawing.

Er, black,

fine, one or two inches
past the waist.

Check.

Erm...

Two dark, almost black,

even moles under the left breast
one centimetre apart.

The furthest left is lower.

Check.

Jesus.

Anything else?

Er...

She always wore a small gold cross,

which she removed before
our sessions.

Not here, mate.

Guess she died fucking.

She shave her muff?

Yup.

Close-shaven,
one to two millimetres.

Check.

Approach the body, please.

Can you positively
identify the body?

HE SOBS

Yes.

I'd like to have a moment
to say goodbye.

Yeah, you just had it, buddy.

No.

Cover her. It's inappropriate.
You're a customer,

not a family member.
PHONE RINGS

Hey, no phones here.

Turn it off.

CAMERA CLICKS
Stop right there.

Hey! You just disobeyed a direct
order - that's an offence.

Take that. I can delete it.
We'll keep that as evidence.

I can delete it. Not now you can't.

It's evidence, and even if you
trash it, it's retrievable.

What did you want? A souvenir?

Get your bag, Brett.
We'll take you home.

See you, buddy.

Hey, so what do you think?

Shall I keep his phone or...?

You decide.

Do you like him? Like?

Well...what?

He knows her body by heart,

he paid attention to her.

He cared.

So you think he cared.

I want to know if he killed her.

Well, someone did.

I want to be with you.

And I'm finding this quite upsetting
cos I think you've got someone.

Just fucking tell me
if you've got someone.

Hey, get the car.

YOU get the car.

Come on, mate.

This is...bullshit.

Look, just so you know, Stall can
get a little fixated on women,

so you might want to keep
your distance.

You're overseeing our case.

See, there are noes that mean yes.

All of us guys get plenty
of yes-noes.

Stally doesn't know a real
no from a yes-no.

Here.

Call me if he comes around.

Thanks, mate.

GUNSHOTS

Brett...

Brett...

I'll have dinner at the table
tonight. We've got company.

Oh. Oh, er, sorry, introductions.

Cinnamon, this is my good mother.

Who is it, dear?

Yeah, well, you're calling it
overtime but I call it

effective police work.
I need Thommo out there.

China girl before her
face was smashed.

Her name?

Cinnamon. Shop name.

So...suspects?

Either of you?

Brett Iles - he's intense.

I'd also look at the shop itself.

There's rumours of a guy who
rents a room above it.

Where are you going?

I'm leaving you two alone.

Sit back down.

Just wait. Will you?

You know, you're taking
a moment to see your partner's...

Do you see she's upset?

Look, I got your messages.

So what is it?

I can't stop worrying that
something's wrong

and the baby's dead.

SHE SOBS

Why? Are you bleeding?

When you miscarry, you bleed.

Ask for an ultrasound.

It's hard to organise.

Hey, but if it's...

..if it stops you from
worrying. Mm?

Is she being a bitch?

Yes!

I'm sorry.

I don't see you enough.

I need you.

I get scared, really scared.

I know, I know.

Sylvie!

Oh, God.

THEY LAUGH

That's what I've
heard on the grapevine.

Housewives, stuff.

Hi. Robin.

Hey, yeah, I remember. You're
back from New Zealand, are you?

Hi, how are you? OK. How's Patrick?

Did he like his panda? Panda?

Yeah, the stuffed bear.
No, I think you might be thinking

about another kid. Patrick
doesn't have a panda. Hey.

Hey! Oh, hi. Where are you going?

You left your lunch. Right, OK.

Hey.

SIREN WAILS

Are you blaming me for his wife?

I didn't know she was coming.

No, I blame you for enjoying it.

And attacking me every day
relentlessly. Not today - every day.

Do you recognise her?

Hmm... I don't know who she is.

Pixie, we've got
to stop this bullshit.

Look at her.

Let me help.

She is not a student, she's a sex
worker, Pixie, and she's dead.

Oh, God.

I don't know how I can help.

Are you sure she's a sex worker?

Yes.

Get me a fucking ultrasound.

Pick up the phone,
call Dr Chatterjee...

I can't do that, he's away.

He's away? Yes. Fuck you, Pixie!
Get someone else to do it!

Hey!
PIXIE SQUEALS

That is enough.
She has heard you, she will do it.

I want to see you fucking phone!
Do something.

You'll do it, you'll text
the appointment time. Get off me!

Constable Hilmarson, you
have to leave. No.

It's my baby.

It's my baby! It's OK, you've told
her, she'll do it. Leave.

Constable... Leave. Leave.

Erm, can we meet up and talk?

Call me one night after seven.

SHE GROANS

We have to have this out.

Yes, we do.

Hey.

Yeah, no, thanks.

Wake up, you have a baby.

You need to take care of yourself.

Don't give me that shit.

You don't care about me.

You actually enjoy any
opportunity to humiliate me.

What's your excuse?

For this?

For kicking and screaming
at the IVF clinic.

One minute you're
yelling for an ultrasound,

the next you're smoking
and killing your baby's brain cells.

I'm going to make sure you
take care of your baby.

I will haunt you.

Oh, you do.

You do.

See, I'm not your partner,

I'm your whipping boy.

And I have to be hopeless

so you can be clever and you can
be capable and you can...

What's your point?

You've no idea?

Tell me.

I want to hear.

Go ahead.

It's so, so sad.

Because you are broken-hearted
and you don't even realise.

Everybody knows.

Liam knows. Adrian knows.
I know. Your daughter knows.

She's reaching out to you.
She's trying to heal you.

Can't you just hold her?
You have no idea about my life.

I've seen it myself. You're afraid
to touch her. I take care.

I am careful with people.

And I don't?

Like you should be. Why are you
fucking around with Liam?

We're friends. He's fragile...
We love each other, OK?

That's it. It's a foreign
language to you. You're careless.

Yeah, I'm the one that cares.

No, I CAN translate -

you're fucking dangerous.

You have no idea how lucky you are.

I've been pregnant...

not just once with Mary.
Four times.

Three miscarriages.

So don't you dare say
that I don't care.

What? Is that too close? Yeah!

But what about this? Huh?

Yeah, is this better over here?
Yeah.

ROBIN SNIFFLES

I'm not having my baby.

ENGINE RUMBLES OUTSIDE

No, you don't want to know.
Just picture that...

You know, it's better
for the performance.

Hey, mate, what are you doing?

Hey, what's that thing? Are you
making a documentary about me?

The Fuck Wizard Strikes Back?
Whoo! Whoo!

Yeah, something like that.

All right, so first it was stand up
back stairs,

then I went through
all the positions.

You know, I got her onto the bed.

We did some Viennese oyster,

just some nice airy-fairy stuff,
and then I fucking shocked her,

turned around, demonic looking
straight in her eyes, man.

The Fuck Wizard's here.

How do you remember them all?

Like, I... You know, if I...

Like, I get so involved
in the moment, I wouldn't know,

like, which one to do next.

You always get too involved,
because you're emotional.

You've got to keep it...

keep it very logical
and very scientific, right?

If you... If you get stuck, get her
to go through a little dry run.

Get her to go through them.
She knows all the positions.

Stick deep, rodeo... Mate, it really
loosens them up. OK.

Hey, you got a bit of
a glow about you.

Have you had a touch of the GFE?

What? Have you been seeing Cinnamon?

I did. What's she up to?
Really? Oh, she's back?

At Silk 41?

She must love your little
rest-up sessions

when she gets to rest up
from sucking all that cock,

just rest the old jaw.

WHISPERING: That's really lovely.
That's really hot.

I hope you're not putting me
on YouTube, Brett.

I'll smash you.

LAUGHTER

No, this is going to go on the news.
Really?

Hey. Hi.

Hey.

Another coffee? Anything?
You're putting us on the news?

That'd be good for me, thanks.
Yeah. Nothing? Coffee, caffeine...

I've looked through her patient list
and there's a lot of them.

No, it actually shocked me, too.
I had no idea.

Well, I honestly believe Pixie's
intention was to help,

but we're in a bit of
a situation now.

I've got to walk my dog.

Here's Pixie. It's the detective.

I'm so sorry.
I was only trying to help.

Just to help the people
have their babies...

I wasn't paid.
I just passed on a number.

That's all I did.

And people thanked me...
Everyone thanked me.

You've got to get them all together.
Tell them to come to your place.

Come to my apartment.

I'll invite some couples
and I can tell you all what I know.

OK.

That'd be good.

All right, so you'll text me
the address?

Bye.

OK, Pixie wants to have us over.

She wants to tell us what she knows.

You'll come?

Of course.

Thank you.

To my one good egg -

my A-grade blastocyst.

To your little...

Rosa. She's a little girl.

To Rosa!

Oh, did you think...?

What? That we should stop drinking?

No. Did you think Cinnamon...?

Yes, I did think.

When I saw the foetus
pulled out at the morgue...

..I was scared it was Rosa.

But it was somebody's baby boy.

It's not mine, but it's somebody's.

Did Adrian give your surrogate
a panda?

Actually, yes, erm...

Molly had morning sickness.

Why? Tell me.

I saw a panda at Silk 41.

No, she's a student.

You think she's a sex worker.

I think she's had a miscarriage -
that's why she's disappeared.

But the worst thing is,
perhaps not.

Perhaps our baby will be born
and we'll never find her.

We'll never see her.
We'll never care for her.

MIRANDA SOBS

Hey.

MIRANDA STILL SOBBING
We're going to find your baby.

Hey! OK?

I'm going to find your baby, OK?

I'm a detective,

but I'm also a super detective.

MIRANDA SNIFFLES

OK?

I know, I know... I will find her.

Thank you.

You have a really good heart,
and I'm sorry for what I said.

ROBIN SOBS

Oh... Excuse me.

Oh, no.
No, you can howl if you want to.

Oh... Oh...

Excuse me. I'm sorry.

How did this happen?
I've been dying to ask.

I know that's not a dog.
That's people teeth.

Mary's boyfriend.

He's the German from Silk 41.

Oh, my God. Really?

And that's why you didn't
tell Adrian.

Oh, no, poor Mary. She has to
leave him. He's so dangerous.

She's in love.

She's really, really in love.

Oh, fuck love. It's a disease.

People die from it.

SHE EXHALES
No, not her. No, no, no, no.

No, no.

That's it. No, not that one. The
big one. Get the big... Up the top!

Yeah. That's not my bag.

Yeah, it doesn't matter.
Big one is better.

I've paid already for the ad.

Yeah, if you do the search,
we're not on the front page.

I'm telling you...

I can e-mail you receipt
this time, but I'm telling you,

we made the payment.

I don't know whose bag that is.
It doesn't matter. That's OK.

You'll come? Awesome.
Yes, we have Jade and Joy.

They're both active, passive -
whatever you want.

You can make booking,

or you can come in and have a look
first if you want.

Where are you going?

I'm leaving for holiday.

No more sex. No more cock.

Where?

You come. Yeah.
You come to Thailand when I'm back.

You meet my mother.

Yeah.

Don't go to Canberra.

Where?

You know, Canberra, like Cinnamon.

Cinnamon? Oh, she...
What a stupid girl!

She's too emotional.

She get involved,
crying and crying...

Mary...

Do you love Puss?

You tell me, really.

Yes.

I don't think I love anyone.

Maybe you, hmm?

Maybe this...

But I won't do that,
even if I feel it profit...

THEY SPEAK OWN LANGUAGE

Give it to me. Come on.

Thank you.

THEY SPEAK OWN LANGUAGE

Hey, off it! Off!

Off.

COMPUTER BEEPS

CAR BOOT CLICKS AND THUMPS

DOOR CREAKS

No, no. Wait in the car.

I want to say goodbye to Kamon.

Why? You've said goodbye already.

DOOR SLAMS

What are you doing in there?

METAL SCREECHES

We are cutting her throat.

What happened to Cinnamon?

Well, who...? Who's been asking?

Your mummy?

Has she been asking questions?

You think that I killed her.

Do you think I would do that?!

Yeah, you go home. You walk home!

Bloody fuck... Shite...

SHE EXHALES

Yeah, all right.
You can always come back.

Just take what the fuck you
need from upstairs. Yeah.

PHONE RINGS

PHONE CONTINUES RINGING

PHONE RINGS LOUDER

Hi. Is she not answering?

Not yet, no.

I can hear music. Maybe she...

I'm just trying now.

Where is she?

I don't know.

Pixie, it's Dr Campbell.
Can you please let us in?

We're at your apartment. Thanks.

DOG WHINES

KNOCK AT DOOR

Hi.

There's no response from
Pixie's intercom.

Did you try calling her?

Yeah, there's no response.

Are you sure she meant tonight?

Yeah, I'm certain.

BARKING CONTINUES

DOG WHINES
Anything?

Not for a while.

Oh, my God.

Has she killed herself?

Yeah, looks like she has.

ISO, we have a deceased at 10B
Victoria Avenue in Bellevue.

It appears to be a suicide
by drug overdose.

Female, early 40s to mid-40s.

MIRANDA SIGHS
Next of kin haven't been informed.

There are detectives on site
and we need the crime scene here.

Yes, we can stay here.

We'll remain on site
and wait for further notice.

You've got my mobile.

I'm so angry with her.

She was our contact. Yeah.

That's it.

We're... We're in a void.

Can we turn that music down?
Cut it off?

MUSIC STOPS
All right, well, we've got about
an hour before the DOI arrive, so...

it might be best to let the others
know that there won't be a meeting.

DOG WHIMPERS

Miri, she left you a letter.

Is she blaming me?

No, no, no, she was being
besieged by parents who've lost

contact with their surrogates.

All these people?

It's unbelievable.

Who's organising this?

Well, it's not Pixie.

Her contact was Dr Chatterjee
and he's gone back to Bangalore.

I'm really scared.

Hey, our baby's safe, OK?

She's in Mali.

She's safe, OK? She's safe.

All right?
And she's a young person.

They don't keep contact. All right?
She's bad at it.

DOG BARKS
Mate...

MIRANDA SOBS

She'll call. She'll want payment.
25K, that's a lot.

That's a lot of money.

There's a couple who are
desperate to talk,

and they know we're cops.

What about the dummy?
Shall we leave it?

MIRANDA BREATHES HEAVILY

Are you OK?

DOG YAPS

What was her name?

Pathma.

We... We met her initially,
and then we...

we saw her again when she had
the first ultrasound.

And do you know how old she was?

I think that she said 20... 20.

We arranged to meet with her
because I think she was lonely.

Yeah, she was missing her family.

She was here on a student visa.

We wanted her to come
and live with us.

And what did she say?

Well, she said it was impossible -
that she would get into trouble.

Trouble with who?

Her English wasn't very good,
you know?

Actually, Paul and I think
that Pathma...

BECCY SIGHS

Can you say?

Yeah, at this moment in time,
Beccy and Paul are wondering

if maybe their surrogate
is your murdered girl.

We lost contact with her
a month ago,

and her phone is disconnected,
and she wouldn't do that herself.

Have you got any photographs?

Yeah. Yeah, we have a lot of photos.

We have a picture, too.

SHE EXHALES

This is her necklace.

God, I...

How did she die?

According to the pathology report,
it was strangulation.

If it's possible,
we'd like to bury our child.

Of course, I understand,
but if you admit to the surrogacy,

the police could prosecute.

I don't care.

I want my child to be acknowledged.

I want to see my child.

I want my family to see my child.

We have been lying for over a year.

I'm so sorry...
Oh, I'm going to scream.

I'm just going to scream it out on
the streets!

I think we probably should go.

WHISTLING

PUSS WHISTLES

Are you waiting for me?

I...

I've come to apologise for spoiling
your beautiful face on the beach.

It's a problem I have had
since childhood,

compulsive urges, and...

Well, it doesn't excuse me,
and I'm so sorry.

I want you to leave Mary alone.

Like you did for 18 years?

Yeah, well, I understand it must be
difficult for the mother, you know?

The daughter fucking some old guy...

I mean, but even with
the young guys, it's difficult,

you know, to think about what
might happen between them

during the night-time,
but, hey, that's...that's life.

So, when are you going to start
doing your job?

Mary tells me that Cinnamon is dead.

Why don't you come to the shop, hmm?

Is it because she's Thai?

Is it because she's Asian,
and then it doesn't matter?

It matters.

OK. I...

I've been troubled by something
I saw maybe four weeks ago.

At the time it was nothing.

It was just a suitcase
in the hallway,

but, in the morning, it was gone.

Was it a pink one?

PUSS LAUGHS
No, it was a green one.

And I...I wonder about that
suitcase, you know?

HE EXHALES

You should do your job for the girl,
for Pathma.

That was her Thai name, OK?

FOOTSTEPS MOVE AWAY

KEYS JANGLE

So she just never turned up?

That's right.

Yeah, I waited,
but I thought she might be here.

No, no, not for a few days.

Well, that makes me feel
a little better.

What's all this?

What are you doing? Having a date?

No.

Come on, Pykey. No, I...
Yes, you are.

A friend's coming over.

Robin.

She...

She had Mary to stay,
so it's payback.

When was that?

Well, she stayed a couple of nights.

A couple of nights? Yeah.

JULIA SIGHS

Hi there.

I'm just leaving.

I got stood up by Mary
at the Sushi Train.

You haven't heard from her,
have you?

Sorry, no.

Pyke said that she stayed with you.

Thanks for that.

It's a little bit awkward right now,
so all hands on deck, right?

She's my daughter too.

You think that, do you?

Yes.

Before she was born,
while she was unconscious... Julia.

What? Come on.

I'm grateful, of course I am, Pyke,

but I'm the one who cared
for her every single day,

every single night since
she was a baby, so...

Her?

Nine months. That's enough.

What, that's enough?!

I am her mother.

Not "too".

Are you going to say anything?

SHE SIGHS

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

In 20 years, you were never
unfaithful to Julia.

I had a passion.

I fell in love with a woman at work,

but I fought it.

That's very contained of you.

No, I was a drama queen, actually.

I took time off work,
saw a therapist,

saw a psychic.

I told Julia.

So, what happened?

The psychic told me that Maia was
not my true love,

but my awakening.

She said my soul lover was coming.

I suffered.

She suffered.

Finally, Maia couldn't bear it.

She decided to take a job overseas.

She wanted one thing before
she left, though.

A kiss.

But it had to
be for as long as she wanted.

And you agreed to that?

Yeah.

So, how long was it?

Two minutes?

Five minutes? Not even close.

Longer than ten minutes?

It was longer than an hour.

Maybe two.

It was pretty glorious.

What, you don't like kissing?

SHE LAUGHS

I've embarrassed you.

Oh, I've upset you.

No.

I like your story.

We've got a pile of photos.

Videos as well.

From when Mary was small.

This one's worth seeing.

I think she was about three.

I put it together for her
13th birthday.

You know, she grew up in this house.

You want to take a look at her room?

Can I? Yeah.

Yeah, go on.

It's second on the left.

Pyke?

What is that? A pregnancy test.

Negative.

I'm putting it back.

I shouldn't even be in here.

So she's not using protection?

That's a risk.

Yeah.

That's very good, yes.

I think that's
what we've got to have. What's this?

You hold. You film her like this?

No, no, no. No lipstick.

It's supposed to be a poor
village person.

No matter!
Even poor people dress up for click.

No. No, get out of this, please.

You wear poor village clothes.

I have a film to make here.

Please. I need babies.

Where are the babies?

I need to find the babies.

Puss! Hey. Yes. Sir.

What if we put some lights behind
the fronds to back-light them?

I paid 600 for these plants.

I want to see the front of them.

They look like office plants,
though. Yes. No. It's Thai village.

It's Thai jungle. Get it, man.

OK, hello, everybody.

So, can we get some happy
babies inside, please?

CHILDREN SING

Yeah, we actually closed today. You
after girl or ladyboy?

Tomorrow? No problem.

10am?

OK. Bootie, do you have
the money? OK.

Now, Bootie...

Yeah?

Hey...

Not foreground!
This is in the jungle!

Here we go. Come on. No...

CHILDREN CRY

Let me hold this now.

Puss, please be careful.
It's the school's.

Sad for the baby,
happy for the money!

So, what's the idea?

Well, look, we keep it light.

See if she wants a lift home

or, if not, a coffee.

OK.

We want to check in.

Yeah.

Yeah, good.

Shit. Look who's already there.

Who?

Oh, fuck him.

Want to try another day?

Nah. Here, take this.

Careful.

Pyke!

Hey. Hey! Clear off
and leave my daughter alone.

Mary...
Leave my daughter alone.

Go on, leave.
Look, Mary is open with her love...

Dad, what are you doing? It's a good
quality. You should be happy.

Hello, baby.

And you are not her father.

She's not your daughter.

No. I bathed you. I fed you.
I held you. I love you.

I'm your father. Yes, well...
I'm your father.

Yes, so you have devotion. That's
splendid. But let's face the facts.

You will never be her father.

You didn't make her.
It's not your spunk.

No, I am her father.
He just means technically.

Technically, it's true.
No, it's not technical. I love you.

I will always care for you.

OK? I will always care for you.

Long after he has gone,
I will always help you.

You're not getting it.

I'd put my life down for you.

Let's go.

Let's get you a drink.

Come on.

I think this is drink number...

Is it four?

Oh, yeah? Are you counting?

THEY LAUGH

Hello. Yeah. Have a good look.

Hey, to you.

And the love for your daughter.

OUR daughter.

# These arms of mine

# They are lonely

# Lonely and feeling blue

# These arms of mine

# They are yearning

# Yearning and wanting you

# And if you

# Would let them hold you

# Oh, how grateful I will be
