Buried Secrets (2018) - full transcript

After her mother's funeral, Sophie's Aunt Jordyn shows up, and Sophie thinks something is not right, and finds out that she is in danger.

[dramatic music]









- Hey you.
- Hey.

Do you need any help?

I can't believe my sister
just died in a car accident.

How long will you be gone for?

Uh, I don't know.
We'll see how it goes.

I need to make things right.

[footsteps approaching]




- Ah.
- Ah!


- Ah.
- Ah.

[intense music]



[birds chirping]

What? No good?

These eggs
look like hash browns.

Mom used to make pancakes
with burned edges.

I can try.

I think I can pull that off.

Morning, honey.

- Happy?
- Happier.

Hey, dad, um,
I need the car tonight.

I need to be at Skylar's
by 6:00.

Mm, well, I'm not sure I'm gonna
be home from work by then.

Well, then how am I supposed
to get there?

- [doorbell rings]
- Oh. Well, there's an idea.




- How are ya?
- [laughs]

- I'm good.
- Good.

I'm gonna go get my backpack.

Can I come to meet your dad,

- Okay.
- Sweet.

- Morning, Luke.
- [Luke] Hi, Mr. Caldwell.

[David] How are you?
[Luke] I'm good, good.

Um, my mom and dad
were wondering if you guys

would like to come over
for supper sometime this week.

Oh, well,
that's very nice of them.

Uh, they just felt really bad

that they weren't
at the funeral.

[sighs] Okay, we're going.

[David] Have a good day,
you two.

- Bye, guys.
- Bye.

[Sophie sniffles]

Are you okay?


- [sighs]
- It's gonna be okay.

I just miss her so much.

Hey, that's normal.

It's only been
a couple of weeks.

[telephone ringing]

- Hello.
- Is this Mr. David Caldwell?

Yes, this is.

Who's speaking? Tsk. Hello?

[woman on phone]
I heard about the car accident.

I-I'm so sorry about your wife.

Uh, thank you. Who's calling?

I-I just wanted, I...

I'm so sorry.

[line disconnects]

[dramatic music]

[doorbell rings]

Uh, can I help you?

Are... [sighs]

Are you David Caldwell?

[David] Oh, did, uh...

Did you call my office
earlier today?

Uh, yeah.

[sighs] Uh, I'm so, I'm sorry,
do I know you?

I'm Jordyn.

Uh, uh...

Jordyn Robinson.

Oh, my God.

Uh, just come in.
Please, come in.

[Jordyn] I hope
I'm not disturbing you.

No, you're not. Please, come in.

Gosh, I can't believe this.


God, you really do
look like her.

I, uh, I mean, not exactly,
but the more I look at you...

Yeah. You should have seen us
when we were little.

People used to think
we were twins.

Uh, s-sorry, can I, uh,
can I get you a drink?

- No, no. I'm okay.
- Well, please, have a seat.


[David grunts]


I'm sorry, uh,
forgive me for asking,

but how did you even hear

about the car accident?

I mean, unless there's something
I don't know.

You guys hadn't spoken in,
what, 20 years?

I, uh, um...

- Do you know Aunt Phyllis?
- I, uh, um...

Uh, maybe. Quirky,
with thick glasses.

- Little m... Yeah.
- Yeah.

I'm not sure if she'd agree
with you on that description,

but, yes, that's Aunt Phyllis.


She's one
of the only family members

that I stayed in touch with.

I see.

I am so sorry about everything,

And listen, I, I know
what you must think of me

and what you must have heard...

No. No, no, no.
Jordyn, listen, no.

Uh, look...

I loved your sister

more than anything in the world.

Uh, and I would do anything
for her or the kids,

but look, I know, she can be...

she could be tough sometimes.

A lot of the time.

You know,
as far as I'm concerned,

the past is past. Just...

Life's too short...

as we know.

Well, listen,
I should probably get going.

I shouldn't even have
intruded on you like this.

- Because...
- Come on. No, you're family.

I'm sorry. I didn't even,
I didn't even ask.

- Where are you staying?
- Oh, just...

You know, out by the airport.
Fast and easy.

- Well, we have a spare room.
- No.

- It's...
- No.

Uh, plus, all my stuff's
back at the hotel, so...

But if you don't mind,
I would like to come back

tomorrow morning
and meet the kids?

Well, I think they'd like that.

- I'd like that.
- Great.

- A new start.
- Yeah.



You never know how much
you're gonna miss it

till it's gone.

[dramatic music]

Who is she?

Uh, well, kids,
this is, uh, uh...

Uh, I'm your Aunt Jordyn.

Your mom's sister.

- Whoa!
- Yeah.

Well, thanks for coming.
I'm sure mom would be touched.

- Sophie...
- No, no, no. It's okay.

I'm sorry. Um...

You know, I don't blame you.

I haven't seen your mom
in over 20 years.

I've never met your brother
and I've never met you.

I deserve it.

Well, uh, Jordyn,

this is Sophie and this is Noah.

So how old are you guys?

I'm 16.

Tsk. And she's 18.

Hm. A young lady.

Dad, what the hell
is she doing here?

- I should go.
- Hey, no, no. You stay.

Sophie. Now, you listen,
young lady.

I don't care what's happened,
that doesn't give you the right

to treat someone like that.


- I'm so...
- No, no, no, it's, it's okay.

Go to her.

- [door slams]
- She needs you.

[knocking on door]

[sighs] Go away.

[David] Soph,
let me come in, please.

I said, go away.




We just buried mom
a few weeks ago

and that bitch shows up?


There's a lot
between your mom and her sister

that you don't know, okay?

I just miss her so much.

I know, honey. I know.

I miss her, too.

[mellow music]

You know, David,
I really appreciate the offer.

I'm just, I'm not sure
how comfortable I am with it.

You know, you,
you haven't even really had time

to properly grieve yet.

Look, maybe this is selfish,

but... having you re

reminds me of her.

It's like having a piece of her
still with me.

It's not selfish, it's sweet.

Besides, it's not permanent.

Just until you get settled
and find a place of your own.

You said you're between jobs.
Your lease is up.

I mean, there couldn't be
a better time for a change.

And there is no statute
of limitations on starting over.


[instrumental music]

- Hi.
- Oh.

I thought you'd never come back.

[chuckles] Well, I'm here.

[Sophie chuckles]

Hi, Sophie.

I didn't know you had company.

Hi. I'm Jordyn. Sophie's aunt.

My mom's sister.

I'm Luke. Sophie's Luke.

Come on, let's go.


You kids let me know
if you need anything.

[upbeat music on headphones]

[car honks]

You're Sophie's aunt.

Why don't you call me Jordyn,

Uh, okay.

Hop in. I'll give you a ride.

No, I actually have my own car.

Come on, get in.

♪ I'm on the wa-a-ay ♪

♪ Well that is
what about you? ♪

♪ I'm on the wa-a-ay... ♪

There's no reason
to be nervous, Luke.

I'm not.

- You're shaking.
- Yeah. Well...

And I don't think
my niece likes me very much.

But you like me.

Don't you?

I-I don't know how Sophie
would feel about this.


Then it'll just be

our little secret.

Jordyn. Jordyn, I...

I, I couldn't do that.

Hey, I couldn't do that
to Sophie.

And Sophie would never do this
to you.

Mm. Luke.

♪ Baby ♪

♪ Whenever you think of me ♪

♪ Whenever you call me ♪

♪ Whatever you need ♪

♪ Baby I will be there ♪

♪ I will not let you drown ♪

♪ I wanted to pull you down ♪

♪ Pushing you away ♪

♪ You can't see... ♪

That was amazing.

Was it, was it good for you?


Aw, Luke.

Someday you're gonna make
a little cheerleader very happy.

When can we do this again?

You're not gonna tell Sophie,
are you?


But you're gonna break up
with her.


Oh, you don't have to worry

your pretty little head
about that.

I have my reasons.
And that's all you need to know.

Well, you can't make me do that.

That's not really your choice
anymore now.

- Is it?
- And what if I don't?

Well, then I'm gonna tell Sophie

that you begged me for a ride,

gave me directions out here
and then forced yourself on me.

[scoffs] Yeah,
she'll never believe that.

Yes, she will, Luke.
We both know that.

But more importantly,
so will her dad,

your parents,
your football coach

and all the colleges
you are applying to.

You're a bitch!

Oh, you have no idea.

But just for that, you can walk.

Now get the hell out of my car!

[David] Tsk, so what, uh,

what kind of places
have you been reachin' out to?

Uh, marketing
and PR companies, mostly.

Well, that's what I did before

for non-profits and foundations.

The companies
have to be large enough

to understand the value of SEO.

- Tsk. SEO.
- Search Engine Optimization.

Right. [chuckles] Right.

Uh, well, I-I can talk
to Sharon in HR,

see if she has any leads for ya.

Yeah, thank you.

That'll be great. I mean,
just, if it's no trouble.

- No. No, no. Happy to do it.
- Okay. Okay.

But how can you just leave
and come here?

Don't you have a job
or anything?

- Sophie...
- No, no, no, it's, it's okay.

I know this probably seems
a little impulsive to you guys,

but it's actually been
a long time coming.

- Yeah, but why here?
- Don't worry.

I'm not gonna be staying
much longer in your guestroom.

I might stay in the area,
though. Who knows?

- [car honking]
- Oh, I gotta go.

He can't come to the door
like a gentleman?

Dad, it isn't like the 1950s

- Yeah.
- Love you.

Love you.

Hey, Jordyn, come.

- Hey.
- [sighs]

Am I supposed to send
thank-you notes

to everyone
who came to the funeral?

- Is that... Yeah.
- Yeah.

That's why
they write their names

and addresses in that book.


But I mean,
if you're feeling overwhelmed,

I'm, I'm sure
people would understand.

Yeah. It's ironic, isn't it?

You know, Judy was the one who
handled all those family stuff.

I can actually feel her
getting embarrassed for me.


- [David] Sophie.
- Leave me alone.

[David] Oh, what now? [sighs]

[Jordyn] Oh, wait.
David. David, David.

It, it has to be the boyfriend.

Talking to a dad
in this situation

is not the best idea.

Trust me on this, okay?
Judy would agree.

Thank you.

All right, just let know
if you need...

I promise.

[dramatic music]

- [knocking on door]
- [sniffles]

Go ay, dad.

[Jordyn] It's not dad, Sophie.

[scoffs] Then really go away!

[scoffs] What are you,
totally deaf or just stupid?

Mm. Neither, I hope.

I just wanna talk.

Yeah, why the hell would I wanna

talk to you?

Well, because you can't talk
to your dad

about this stuff.

[chuckles] And you can't talk
to your friends

because, well, we both know
what you really think of them...

and because...

your mom's not here.

[sniffles] Boys suck.

Oh, do you wanna know the truth?

Until they hit about 40,
it doesn't get any better.

You know, that jerk,

he didn't even say why.

He just said
it wasn't working anymore.

It was serious?

I don't know.

We're in high school.

How serious could it be?

But for senior year,
he wasn't bad to have around.

Dry your eyes. Come on.

Come with me.

[mellow music]

Okay, ignore the mess,
but, you know,

with a little luck, hopefully,
I won't be here much longer.

Hey, at least my dad
can't make you clean your room.

[Jordyn] Yeah.

Yes. Here it is.

Your mom and I.

Halloween, 1998.

We both went as rock stars.

You probably don't even know
who that is.

Yeah, I do, that's the star

of the celeb rehab show, right?


Wow. She looks a lot like me.

Yeah, minus the hair accessory,

you two could twins.


You mom was so beautiful.

All my boyfriends were jealous.

This doesn't look like you,

Yeah, I didn't really hit
my stride until college.

Be thankful
you took after your mom.

All right,
let's go back downstairs.

[dramatic music]

[sighs] Sophie,
you ordered the pizza, right?

- Where is it?
- [scoffs] Dad!

The guy said, like,
half an hour.

- Eh.
- Come on, David. relax.

Just enjoy this time, you know,
all of us together.

[David] I am. I am. I just...

I would enjoy it more
with a slice of pepperoni.

- You know...
- I love family dinners.

Always reminds me
of when Judy and I were kids.

Best time of my life. I miss it.

Anyways, you said you had good
news and I wanna hear it, so...

Well, remember when I said
I would mention you to HR?

I spoke to Sharon and she says

that they are thinking
about expanding their team.

So I told them
that you had a specialty in SEO.

- Yes.
- I get that right? Good.

And she says
if you give her a call tomorrow,

she'd love to meet with you.

I don't know what to say.

Well, don't say anything.
Just blow her away.

- Thank you.
- [doorbell rings].

Ah! Finally.

Well, I love your experience,

Oh, uh, please, Jordyn,
if you're comfortable.

I love you experience, Jordyn,

and I have to say,
as I'm sure David did as well,

this is a fortuitous time
for you to come in.

We have done a complete review
of company policies

and one of our recommendations
was a marked increase in SEO.

Well, I know I am biased,

but I think
it's the right decision.

You know,
it is the most effective way

for companies like yours
to increase their visibility.

That said,
I'll be blunt with you.

We allow our current employees
first interview.

Not only do they understand
how the company works,

but we believe
loyalty is a two-way street.

[chuckles] I understand.


- Well, thank you for coming in.
- All right.

- Thank you.
- No problem.

[Sharon] We'll be in touch.
[Jordyn] Okay.

[indistinct chatter]

- [knocking on door]
- Hey.

[chuckles] Hey,
I didn't realize you were home.

- Come in.
- Okay.

What are you doing? [sighs]

Well, I kinda got tired
of living like a hobo,

so I planned on getting
my own place.

But until then, I thought
I would unpack a little bit.

- I would love some help. Yeah.
- Okay.

You have a lot of cool stuff.

[chuckles] Yeah, well,
when you get to be my age

and you have lived
as many places as I have,

you tend to collect
a lot of junk.


- I don't think it's junk.
- Well, then it's yours.

- Really?
- Yeah.

You wear it better
than I ever did, anyways.

Hey, can I ask you a question?


What happened
with you and my mom?

Why'd you guys stop talking?

Well, what did your mom
tell you?

Well, she didn't really
talk about it.

She just said
you guys had a falling out.

And I never really met you,

so I never really asked.

We stopped talking
because I was an idiot.

Well, lots of people are idiots

and that doesn't mean you have
to stop talking to them.

God, you remind me so much
of her.

Okay. Don't change the subject.

[sighs] Okay.


You know our parents died
when we were little, right?

Yeah, well, your mom, she was
a little bit older than me,

but she was a lot more mature.

And we both got
some life insurance money.

And let's just say

that I was really foolish
and stupid.

And your mom...

she didn't like some
of the decisions I was making

and she wasn't shy
about telling me,

and I certainly didn't want
to hear it.

But by the time I realized
she was right, she was married,

starting a family with you guys.

But why? After so long?

Because, Sophie,
sometimes in life

it is easier to forget
and move on

than it is to make amends.

And it wasn't
until I heard the news

that I realized
how wrong I was...

and how much I missed
being a part of a family.

So... were you ever close?

- Hm?
- Like, to getting married?

- Were you ever close yourself?
- [laughing]

Oh, I mean, yeah, there were,
there were a couple of guys.

- Oh, yeah, I bet.
- [laughs]

I think
I was just having too much fun.

[laughing] Yeah, well...

[gasps] Oh, my God, David.

- [Jordyn] You scared me.
- I'm sorry.

- Uh, it's okay.
- Uh, Soph.

You mind if I talk to Jordyn
alone for a minute?

Yeah, sure.

What is it? What's wrong?

Phil Carson got the job.

Wait. My job?

Yeah, the one you applied for.

Well, who is he?

He's just this guy
in our IT department.

Uh, you know,
he's been there for years.

I think Sharon told you
that we're required to give

our own employees
first shot at a new position

before we go
to outside candidates.

She didn't even call me.

Yeah, she was going to. Don't
blame her. I, I told her not to.

I thought it might be easier
coming from me.


Yeah, David, you know, I...

I think
I wanna be alone for a bit.

- If that's okay.
- Yeah.

Of course.

Wait, David.

Who did you say got the job?

- [Jordyn] Phil Carlton?
- Carson.

- Carson.
- [David] He's a nice guy.

Not that that makes you
feel any better.

No. No, it doesn't.

But, uh, it's good to know

that the job went to someone
who deserves it.


[dramatic music]

[door shuts]



[laptop keys clacking]

[dramatic music]

[dramatic music]

- Oh!
- Are you kidding me? Uh...

- Oh!
- Oh. Oh.

- I am so sorry.
- Are you okay?

- [chuckles] I am so sorry.
- Oh.

I was looking at a text message
and I didn't...

Whoa, t-take it easy.
I mean, there's, uh...

There's no use crying
over spilled milk. I mean...

You're funny. Okay, well, let's
get you restocked, at least.

You know, I may be clumsy,
but I am not heartless.

I am going to replace everything
that I broke in these bags.

No-no, there's no need
to do that, girl.

This-this was just an accident,

- Accidents happen all the ti...
- No, no, please.

Please. Please.

Let me.

- Yeah. Yeah, o-okay.
- Huh.

[Jordyn] Wow!
That is really interesting.

[Phil] Right?

Phil, uh,

I just wanna let you know that
I've never done this before.

Oh, oh, well, we don't have
to stay here if you don't want.

- We can go get a coffee or a...
- Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no.


I want to stay.

I really do. It's just, I...

I don't want you to think
that I'm one of those girls who,

you know, goes home with guys
she just met.

- I would never think that.
- Good.

Yeah, 'cause it was just,
you know, after what happened

and then I saw
that you were buying ingredients

to make homemade guacamole.

- [chuckles]
- Which is crazy, right?

I mean, like, who actually makes
their own guac?

- Yeah, and has their own recipe.
- Right, right?

That's how I knew you were okay.

See, I don't,
I don't know any mass murderers

who make organic guacamole.


Speaking of, we should go

check out the guac shop.


So, Phil,
what is it that you do?

I see
you have some amazing artwork.

Must be something creative,
I bet?

Well, hardly,
I just buy those paintings

as I like collecting them,
and, uh...

And to be honest, I think they
are gonna be valuable one day.

- Oh.
- But actually...

I work at this, uh, really large

real-estate brokerage firm.


How interesting.

I mean, it's a job, I guess.

I did just get a promotion,
though, so that's a good thing.

Well, we need to celebrate
your promotion.

- Do you have any wine?
- Yeah.

Yeah, I should.

You know,
I'm not a big drinker myself,

but I always get a few bottles
around Christmas time

as gifts and...

Oh, yeah, there it is.

Will that do?


That will do the trick.

Mm, why don't you go pour us

a couple of glasses?

Good idea.

[ominous music]

[Jordyn] You know, they say,
a person who drinks

one to two glasses of wine a day

lives on average five years
longer than someone who doesn't.

[chuckles] Really?




But you don't need to worry
about that.

[dramatic music]

[car alarm beeps]

Do you wanna tell me
what happened?

Phil Carson is dead.


The guy that got the job
that I wanted?

What happened?

Cops think
it was a robbery gone bad.

Did it happen at the office?

No. No, it, uh...
He never even came to work.

Um, Sharon and HR knows
who hadn't come in.

She called him, he wasn't
answering. That's not like him.

So she called the police.
They did a wellness check.

And they found him on the floor,

Do they have any leads?

Oh, my God. This is awful.

I mean, I guess, uh,
the cops think

it was s-somebody he knew

because there was no signs
of forced entry

and... I guess there was some
valuable art that was missing.

So, apparently,
they knew exactly what to take.

And how are you doing?

I mean, I don't know.
Well, it's...

I've just got back to some sort
of semblance of normalcy

and then this? It's like...
You know...

I mean, I didn't,
I didn't know the guy well.

It's not like
we were exactly friends, but...

his death...

- Oh, his death...
- Shh.

- Shh.
- [sighs]

I'm sorry.

Oh, my God. I'm sorry.

- No.
- No, Jordyn, I can't do this.

- Yes, you can.
- N-no. Please. Look.

Look, you're smart and beautiful

and, God, you remind me of her.

I have wanted this
since the moment I saw you.

I know you want it, too.

I c-can't,
I can't do this to her.

She would understand.

Let yourself feel human again.

[door shuts]

[Jordyn moans]

Well, there's no way to say this

other than... it's an incredibly
irregular situation.

And as tragic as it is,
we need the position filled.

And I'm happy to say that you're
the most qualified candidate.

Oh. Well, I will not
disappoint you, Ms. Cooper.

You can just call me Sharon.

We're not that formal
around here.

And considering
who recommended you,

I have no doubt that
you will be a valuable asset.

Let me show you around.


- This is delicious.
- He's right, David.

It's amazing,
but this was unnecessary.

[David] Well, I think
it's about time this family

have something to celebrate,
don't you?


So now that you've found a job,

you want me to help you
find a new place to stay?

Oh, that's so sweet,
and sounds like a lot of fun,

but, um, your dad and I
were talking

and I think I might stay here
a little bit longer,

if that's okay with everyone.

Yeah, Jordyn and I
were just thinking,

with her starting a new job,

there's no reason for her
to move.

Besides, she's been
such a huge help.

So you've already decided this.

Well, it's okay with you,
right, Soph?

Don't call me that.

- What?
- "Soph."

Only my dad calls me that.

And my mother.

[David] Uh, look,
why don't we, um,

just enjoy our cake for now
and we'll discuss it later?

I don't know what there's left
to discuss, dad.

[David] Hey, kiddo,
you wanna tell me

what that was all about
down there?

What the hell are you doing?

- Excuse me?
- You heard me.

Yeah, I heard you,
but I don't appreciate the way

you're talking to me right now.

Now, look,
I've let a lot of things slide

over the past few weeks
in light of everything,

but you will stop acting
like this.

If there is something
bothering you, talk to me.

But you won't continue
this behavior.

Okay. You wanna know
what's bothering me?

Of course, I do.

The fact
that you found a replacement

for our mother.

Sophie, and that's ridiculous,
and you know it.

Yeah? Is it?

First, you were just
reconnecting with her

because it was what
mom would've wanted

and then it was just
helping her find a job

and now she's staying here
for God knows how long?

She is not a member
of this family, dad.

Sophie, you are not the only one
who is hurting here, okay?

I know. I know that you and Noah
lost your mother.

And I know how terrible that is.

I lost my wife.

I lost my best friend
and my partner.

And no matter
how much you kids hurt,

that is something
you can never understand.

Oh, my God.

You're sleeping with her.

Aren't you?

I... Look, I don't have
to listen to this.

I understand what
you're going through, Sophie,

but you will respect me.

And you will respect your aunt.

Do you understand?

You didn't answer my question.

- Hey.
- Hey.

- What are you doing for dinner?
- Uh, well...

Oh, it's late.
Uh, I gotta text the kids.

Uh, I could pick up pizza.
How's that sound?

David, you don't have
to include me

in everything that you guys do.

This is gonna take adjusting
for everyone.

It's just pizza.

Okay. I'm in.

- Good.
- Okay.

[dramatic music]

[cell phone beeps]

[intense music]

[door creaks]

[music continues]


- [door creaks]
- [gasps]

[dramatic music]

[door shuts]


Can I help you with something?

Uh, I...

[clears throat]

I thought you were getting pizza
with my dad.

- He texted me.
- He is.

But I had some work that
I needed to finish from home,

so I told him
I would meet him here.

Um, I was just, um...

I was, um...

I have a date.


And, and the necklace
you gave me,

the one
that I liked so much, um,

I was just seeing if you had
anything else like it.

I shouldn't have.
I'm, I'm sorry, I...

No problem.

Yeah. A lot of kids dig through
their mom's stuff, right?

Here you go.

This one.
It'll be perfect for you.


[crickets chirping]

[dramatic music]

[footsteps approaching]

Mm. Oh. [chuckles]


- I want to.
- But what?

Look, it's just...

With everything going on,
I just can't.

I, I'm not saying that we made
a mistake, I'm just,

I'm just saying e-everything's
moving a little quickly.

I thought you liked quickly.

[David panting]

[Luke] Sophie? Sophie!

Sophie. Sophie.

I don't know why you didn't
tell me this earlier.

'Cause you wouldn't have
believed me.

- I might have.
- But nobody else would've.

Who was gonna believe me
over some middle-aged woman?

Still, you should've told me.

I know, I know.

But I was scared.

She told me
that she was gonna tell you

that I forced myself on to her.

And she swore she was gonna
make you believe it.

She was convincing.

[scoffs] Yeah, I'm sure.

- Are you mad at me?
- Yes, I'm mad at you.

I felt really bad about it.

I still feel really bad
about it.

- [sighs]
- Plus, I miss you.

Then help me.


Whatever it takes.


Morning, dad. Uh, coffee ready?

- Freshly brewed.
- Cool.

[David sighs]

So what are you up to
this weekend, sweetheart?

No, I just got a lot
of homework.

Then I'm gonna hang around here
and get some rest.

- [footsteps approaching]
- That sounds like a good idea.

Hey, you two.

Morning, Jordyn.

- [David] What, are you leaving?
- Yeah. Busy day.

But I was thinking I could
grab lunch for everybody.

I'll be back around noon.

I think that sounds nice.

Just give her time. Okay.

[dramatic music]

[car engine starts]

[line ringing]

She's leaving.

[music continues]

[music continues]

- [cell phone rings]
- [gasps]

Hey. Where are you?

She pulled in
to this apartment complex

at Lake Bluff.

Wait, what do you mean,
"Pulled in?"

She drove in, parked her car,

walked inside.

But you didn't follow her,
did you?

No. I'm not a moron.

I'm out here waiting in my car.

Is there a sign with
a phone number on it outside?

You know, for people
who wanna rent, to call?


[Luke] Sure is.
[Sophie] Write it down.

[Luke on phone] Okay.
What do you want me to do now?

If you can,
stay there until she leaves.

10-4, partner.

[dramatic music]

[car engine starts]

[music continues]

[car engine rumbling]

[music continues]

[dramatic music]


[music continues]

[cell phone beeps]


Hi, Sophie.


I thought
you were getting us lunch.

I didn't know you wanted any.

That's okay. Um...

I'm gonna go get lunch
with Luke, anyway.

So that's back on again, huh?

Excuse me?

You and Luke.

I don't see
how that's any of your business.


Mm, Sophie.

I know I'm not your mother,
but I have to tell you.

I think it's a mistake
you're dating that boy.

He could be dangerous.

For whom?

Where's your dad?

He's upstairs in his room.

Sure you know where that is.

[dramatic music]

How did you convince this guy
to meet with us? ce thisy

Well, I told him
who my Aunt Jordyn was

and I said that I needed
to speak with him,

that it was important
and very confidential.

I still don't know
why he agreed.

Well, he's probably afraid that
we have some information on him

that could hurt his business.

[Luke] Mm.

[sighs] Okay.

Just let me do the talking.

Are you afraid I'm gonna say
something stupid?

Yes, I am.

So just keep quiet, and I'm just
gonna play it by ear, okay?

Oh, don't worry about me.

I'll just stand there
and look pretty.

- [laughs]
- Stop.

[Sophie] Okay.
[Luke] After you.

The last time I seen her
was around a month or so ago.

You didn't happen to see her
just a few days ago,

moving boxes
out of her apartment?


No, but I wouldn't be looking.

She pay 300 a month.
That's all I care about.

You didn't happen to notice
anything, um,

I don't know,
out of the ordinary going on?

No, I, uh, never had
any problems with them.

W-wait, them?

Ms. Robinson and her roommate.

Wait, Jordyn had a roommate?

Well, two of 'em lived there.

Two of 'em were on a lease.
You can call whatever you want.

Um, do you happen to have

the name of the woman
who lived with her?

You know, when you called me,

you told me
that this was important.

Pardon me, but everything
I seem to be telling you

seems to be important to you.


Please, I...

And it sounds like you want me

to invade some lady's privacy.

I'm just asking you for a favor.

Okay? A favor that can help
innocent people.

Favor? Well...

I'd be willing to do you a favor

if you're willing to do one
for me.

Hey. You greasy son of a bitch.

You're lucky
we don't call the cops.

Okay, Luke.

Okay. Thank you for your time.

Wait, I just, um...
One more small thing.

I just wanna make sure
that this is her,

that there are no mistakes.

I, I took a photo
of her driver's license.

Yeah, that's her.
That's the roommate.

Wait, I'm-I'm sorry. What?

That's the woman
who lived with Jordyn Robinson.

Uh, no, this is Jordyn Robinson.

This is my aunt.
It says so right there.

I don't care what your photo
says or what the license says,

that is not Jordyn Robinson.

[sighs] Okay. Um...

Thank you.

Come on.

[man on TV]
A nine-year-old metro girl

has a new lease on life,

thanks to surgery
at the hospital

for sick children.

[David] Hey, kiddo.

Hey. Where's everyone else?

Uh, well, I, um,

I told Noah to, uh, eat
at Myles' place

and asked Jordyn if she can give
me some time alone with you.

I thought, uh, I don't know,
I thought we could have

dinner together.

Dad, what's this about?

I know. I know.
I got it, I got it.

Your mother was always better
at thOkay. Um... thing.


We need to have a talk
about Luke.

Let me guess.
Jordyn said something.

- Didn't she?
- She cares about you, Sophie.

I, I know that's hard for you
to accept, but she does.

Dad, are you just
completely oblivious

or do you have your head
stuck up your ass?

No. No, no, no. No, you do not
talk to me like that.

- Do you hear me?
- Or what?

What, are you gonna
send your little whore

to have a nice, little talk
with me?

Okay. All right. You know what?

I thought we could talk
about this

like adults,
apparently, we can't.

Fine. Be that as it may.

Listen to me.

You are not going to see

Luke anymore,
do you understand me?

I still haven't decided
how I'm gonna pursue this.

Pursue what?

Luke made some inappropriate
advances towards Jordyn.

It's bad. Do you understand
what I'm saying?

We're talking
about going to the police.

Are you serious, dad?

You are not going to see Luke

This is not a negotiation.
He is dangerous.

That's the deal.
Do you understand?

- Okay. Yeah.
- Sophie. Soph...

Sophie, w-when you get older,
you'll know

that we're just doing
what's best for you.

Me and your aunt.

[cell phone beeping]

[ine ringing]

Tomorrow morning.

You ready?


I'll see you then.

I was afraid you'd be late.

Well, you told me not to park
anywhere close

to your block, so...

No, you did good.

- You got it?
- Oh, yeah.

I still think
we should go to the cops.

We have some evidence.

No. What evidence do we have?

I mean, the only thing I have is
a picture of someone's license

and some crazy story about
someone impersonating my aunt.

Well, the cops could work
with it.

[Sophie] No.

You know, the first thing
they would do

is go to my father.

And she has him
so completely whipped

that they'd just
turn it around on me

and make it look like
I was the crazy one.

We need something that there
is no way she can deny or spin.

Okay. I just hope
we find it really quick.

Then what are we waiting for?

[instrumental music]

[car engine rumbling]e rum]

Okay. You ready?

Are you sure you don't wanna
come back here when it's dark?

No. That's gonna be
even more suspicious.

Plus, I don't wanna wait
that long.

Let's just go and act like
we're supposed to be here,

and everything's gonna be okay.

- Okay?
- All right.

[intense music]

[Sophie sighs]

[Sophie] Ready?

Okay. It's right down here.


This is the hallway
that I lost her down.

Well, 222.


[Sophie] Okay.

- Okay.
- Take it easy.

I think.

Okay, okay, okay.

- There's, uh...
- 245.

And 222.

- Okay.
- Did you bring the flashlights?

Uh, yeah.

- One for you. Yeah.
- Thank you.

One for me.

- You ready?
- Yeah.

[Sophie sighs]

[music continues]

So what are we looking for?

[Sophie] I don't know, Luke.

with an official name on it.

Anything that doesn't say
Jordyn Robinson.


Wouldn't she have gotten rid
of this storage unit?

No. I don't think so.

I think she needed,
like, financial records,

things like that.

If she wanted to get rid
of them,

she wouldn't have the storage.


Hey, wait.

There's something back there.

Here, help me move this. Right.

And this.

- [Sophie grunts]
- [Luke] Here.

[Sophie] Move that.


[Sophie] Ah! Oh, God! Oh!

[Luke] Sophie!
Come on, let's get out of here!

[sobbing] Oh, my God!
Oh, my God!

Yo, baby, look! Look!
Look at me! Look at me!

You're gonna be okay. Okay?
You're gonna be okay.

[sobbing] Oh, my God!

Was that your aunt?
Your real one?

I don't know. I don't know,
but it must be.

[sobbing] Oh, my God!
No, it can't be her.

- I, I need to call my dad.
- Your dad?

- Yes.
- Okay.

[cell phone ringing]

Hey, honey.
Can you get these to Trevor?

- [Sophie on phone] Dad.
- Soph, what's wrong?

- [David] You okay?
- I'm fine, I'm fine.

But I, I need you
to get home, dad.

I need to talk to you
right away.

Honey, I'm really swamped
right now. What...

Can this wait till I get home,

Dad, it can't wait!
It's a matter of life or death.

Honey, calm down.
What's going on?

She's not
who you think she is, dad.

We found the real Aunt Jordyn.
She's dead!

[Sophie on phone]
The fake Jordyn killed her.

[David] What? Jordyn...
Jordyn killed somebody?

Okay. Relax.

Don't tell me to relax!
I'm not gonna relax!

You need to get home now.
I will prove it to you.

Please, just call the cops, dad.

[David] Okay. Calm down. I'm...
I'll, I'll come home.


- He's coming? Okay.
- He's coming.

Okay. Just get me home
in one piece. Okay?

Hey, Jordyn. I...

What are you doing?

Making sure my dad understands.

[cell phone beeps]

[dramatic music]

Oh, my God.

Ellie, uh, uh, call the police.
Call the police!

Call them right now!
Tell them to get to my house!

My daughter's in trouble.

- I should come with you.
- No.

If my father sees you here,
he'll think you had something

to do with all this.

I need to convince him.

- Are you sure?
- Yeah.

You're amazing.

Okay. Get out of here.

- Call me once everything's okay.
- Okay.

- Hi, Luke.
- [gasps]

[intense music]

[doorknob clicks]


I know you're in here.

It's better if you tell me
where you are.


[Jordyn] Sophie!

Last chance, Sophie.

- [screams]
- [grunts]

[indistinct yelling]


Ow! Ow!

[Jordyn] You couldn't let it go,
could you?

[Sophie groans]

Now it's your turn to die!





All I wanted was a family,

Oh, it's the one thing

Jordyn and I didn't have.

You know, she used to talk
about you,

about her sister's family,

about how she messed up.

Well, she wanted to reconnect,

to say she was sorry. Yeah.

But then, your mother died
and she lost her chance.

But I still have mine.

And then you had to go
and ruin everything.

Ruin everything

because I would've made
a great mother!




[Sophie grunting]




Oh, my God.



[David] Oh, my God.

[indistinct radio chatter]

Officer, I really
can't remember anything.

You might have
a mild concussion,

so you need to take it easy
for a few days.

Dad, get her
to the general practitioner.

You're gonna be okay.

Thank you.


just promise me one thing.


Promise me that we don't have
any more long-lost relatives.


Well, come here.



[David] I love you so much.
