'This is Frank's phone, leave a message.'
Frank, it's Faith.
Can we just leave, please? He's not even in.
Or he's avoiding us.
-'This is Frank's phone, leave a message.'
Frank, are you in there?!
It's still going straight through to voice mail.
I ain't doing this.
When was the last time you even saw him?
Two, three weeks ago, maybe more.
Hang on, wait. Isn't that Frank's flat?
I suppose so.
The flat is empty! No-one's there.
He can't have moved out. He'd have told us.
-Are you sure you got the right flat?
-Do you know Frank Matthews?
When you see him, tell him I want my money.
What money? Where is he?
That's what I'd like to know.
Where'd you get that chain?
Frank's in trouble.
-Have you spoken to the social worker?
-Have you found him yet?
All right, can we calm down, please?
Apparently, Frank hasn't been in college.
He's also missed the last couple of appointments
-with his support worker.
-When did she last see him?
Two weeks ago.
We've spoken to the police, we've filed a missing person report.
Now, we need to gather as much information as we can.
Who saw Frank last?
Me, but that was weeks ago.
What about Jade?
I texted her. She said she hasn't seen him since they broke up.
They broke up?
Mmm, and then she saw him in town with another girl.
-She didn't know, but she did say she looked a bit...
All right. Well, you need to tell the police all this.
They'll probably want to speak to Jade, as well. Come on.
Look, don't worry, we'll find him.
-Mo, where are you?
-There he is!
Leave me alone!
You can't hide forever.
You'll have to go to the dentist one day.
As long as it's not today.
Come on, you might as well get it over with.
-What is that?
-That's good luck.
-Sapphire once told me.
If a bird poos on you, it brings good luck.
My lucky poo!
It's disgusting. Wipe it off.
No, not on your clothes! On the grass.
-Told you it was lucky!
-Sapphire was right!
-There you are!
I've been looking everywhere for you. The dentist's ill,
so the appointment's been cancelled.
What is that mess?
Oh, OK, don't bother answering that. Let's just get you cleaned up, OK?
It'll be all right. Mike will find him.
-Maybe he doesn't want to be found.
-What are you talking about?
I know you hate to see anyone go.
But give Frank a break. The man's 18.
Maybe he just wants to move on.
Then he should tell us that and let us know he's OK.
-Why should he?
-Cos he's our mate.
Mates come and go. It's not like he's your brother.
Yeah, it is...
We're like the only family he's got.
I know family. And trust me, you guys are not family.
-You really want to shut up now.
-If you love Frank so much,
why aren't you out there looking for him?
Excuse me. Have you seen this boy?
Can you look out for him?
-Can you please give us a call if you see him?
Thank you very much, cheers.
-Have you seen this boy?
Can you keep that and look out for him? Thank you.
Right, let's go.
But we've only got three flyers left.
How did you get on at college?
Right, well, let us know. Bye.
It's still early days, ain't it? Come on, let's go.
-That's Frank's watch.
It can't be.
I don't know who sold it. I wasn't on that day.
-You buying it or what?
But we don't have any cash on us at the moment,
so can you keep it for us?
Can't do that. Cash only. First come, first served.
I've other customers interested.
Have you? Who?
Girl who was in before. She said she'll be back.
Come on, birdies, pick me!
Why are there no birdies today?
Because you keep running and shouting?
But we need more luck.
I asked Mike if they were going to find Frank today
and he said only if they were very lucky.
You've already had one lucky poo today.
But May-Li washed it off. We need more poo.
All right, all right. So we need more birds in the garden.
-Come on, Mo.
May-Li? I need your help with something.
Yeah, go on.
It's just, one of your washing lines has fallen down.
Fallen down? Or was it knocked down?
Dunno what you mean.
-Go on quick, before May-Li comes.
-Just keep an eye out, OK!
That's what I am doing.
Let go. Let it go.
I have the money. Give me my watch.
Yes, it was my mother's.
She tried saying it was her watch.
-Look. We just want to talk to you.
That's funny, because you seemed to speak perfectly good English
-in the shop!
-Have you seen this boy?
-Course not. Because you definitely have.
Look. If you're not going to tell us, we'll ask around.
-Yeah, maybe the police will know.
-No photo. No police.
-Are you OK?
I think you just fainted.
It's fine. I've got a photo of her face on my phone.
Yeah, she's good.
Have they found him?
Yeah, just let us know if you hear anything else, OK?
All right, bye.
Someone recognised him outside a chip shop,
questioning some man.
-So he's working the old burger dive again.
We should check out the van in Queen's Park,
-that was his best pitch.
-He must be desperate.
-He hasn't done the burger dive in years.
-What's the burger dive?
That's got to be him. Come on.
They're working together now? Come on.
Hello again. Don't make a scene, just pass it over.
-Excuse me, sir, I think you dropped this.
Oh, he's good, aren't you, mate? Come on, Frank, get up.
He's fine. Honestly. Sorry about that as well.
Frank. Where have you been?
I've been... I've been around. Look, I'm OK.
No, you're not.
We're leaving now. If you try to stop us, I will scream.
If you're leaving, then we're coming with you.
Look, these are my friends. I can explain.
Yeah, you can.
All right. Come.
Not all of you.
All right, then. Just me and Carmen, then, yeah? Is that cool?
Here, birdies. Lovely food.
-I got one!
Think about it. How can a sheet be lucky?
It has to hit a person.
She looks after the place when we're not here.
You've been living here? Frank, you've got a flat.
I can't go back there.
What? Because you owe money?
He played cards with bad people.
First, he won, then he lost. A lot.
How much did you lose?
Take it. It is a gift.
I can't believe you did that.
Neither can I.
Why do you care so much about Frank?
I was sleeping in shop doorway. Frank would give me food.
We would talk. Then he came to me, in trouble.
-I had to help.
We don't steal.
She picks people's pockets when they're trying to help you.
Sorry, mate. We all saw her.
You trick people for food. I steal their money.
It's the same thing.
It's not! I'm not a thief.
But if you had to choose? Steal or starve?
Did you have to choose?
You can't live like this.
It's OK. I'm going to win my money back.
-You can't bet on another card game!
-This one's different.
That's why you sold your watch? Buy-in money for the game?
I will win my money back. Then I'll stop.
Give me the watch.
You said it was a gift!
Not for you to lose at cards! I'll keep it safe for you.
Frank, please don't do this.
I'll be all right. Leave me alone!
Can you please just tell him to come back to the Dumping Ground?
It's our home. It's better than it sounds. Trust me.
Mate, you're crazy.
Why are you acting like such a mug? Just walk away now, right.
Face the fact you've lost that money.
But you've got your watch back, you've got a bit of cash behind you,
get out before you loose everything.
I won't. I told you, this game's different.
And how is it different, Frank?
Jen's taught me her system.
She's really amazing. She wins like every time.
Right, so if she wins every single time,
why is she sharing the system with you?
She wants me and her to work together.
What's she getting out of that?
She likes me, OK?
But I guess you think that she's crazy.
Frank! Where were you? We were so worried about you.
This is Jen.
-You got my money?
And I want a rematch.
Well, then, let's play.
Come to papa!
Wait a minute.
-You were dealing.
-I've got no idea where that's come from.
You cheated, so your boyfriend could win?
It was my idea. Frank had nothing to do with it.
Frank is in trouble. I'm going for help.
How long have you been scamming us?
-This is the first time.
-You must think we're stupid.
We want every penny you've ever won off us.
-This is all I have.
Here. Take this.
No! Frank, you don't have to.
Shut up. That's not enough.
I'll get more.
I've...got a watch I can sell.
What type of watch?
It's an antique watch, it's really valuable.
That'll do. You go get it now.
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
You too. I was almost scared for a moment!
You're such a good actor. Real tears and everything.
Frank, mate, not again.
This has happened before?
He sees a pretty girl, his judgment goes out the window.
Not so pretty.
-Go! Go! Go!
Is something wrong?
You've just wasted a week's worth of food,
-and my clean sheets are covered in guano.
That means bird poo.
So, yes, something's wrong.
It got you!
That's good luck!
-It's true. It really is lucky.
-Maybe it is my lucky day.
Cos I've got three volunteers to help tidy up the garden
and take in the sheets.
Frank, we both saw them. They're all in on it.
I can't believe I fell for it. I'm such a loser.
No, you're not. We'll get your cash back.
-I've got a plan.
I'll tell you at home.
I can't go back to the Dumping Ground.
Yes, you can. You should.
You have friends who care about you. You should be with them.
Yeah. What she said.
All right, but only if you come with me.
-Then I'm staying.
Just come for dinner. All the free food you can eat,
and you won't have to answer any questions you don't want to.
Guys, they're here!
It worked! The lucky poo worked.
-Never do that again, OK?
-The lucky bird poo worked!
-This is Kazima, a friend of Frank's.
Is she all right to stay for dinner?
Sure, but what's happening with Frank?
Just a few problems at the flat, you know.
Is he all right to crash on my floor tonight?
-We'll work something out.
-Nice to meet you.
Wait, so you gambled away all your money? Again?
It's not Frank's fault. He was scammed!
And now you want us to help you commit fraud?
You say fraud. I say justice.
Yeah. They took Frank's money, we take theirs.
Don't get involved.
Too right. You don't know what you're getting into.
These people could be well messed up.
We're not asking anything even that risky. Just jewellery.
Cheap jewellery, that looks expensive.
Like this, you mean?
-This could work. So when do we do it?
You're going to need a girl to make this scam work.
I'm the oldest, and I've got my crutches still.
I like how she's thinking.
I don't get it. Why does she need her crutches?
Because who'll suspect the poor lame girl?
Frank! Frank! Frank!
-Frank's not here.
-Can I come in?
Please, I left something here, something really important.
There's nothing here. The place is empty.
Don't worry. Frank's probably looking after it.
Looking after what?
My engagement ring. I'll just die if I don't get it back!
You think Frank's got it?
I know it's here. I've looked everywhere else.
Call me if you find it. Please.
Expensive, was it?
Priceless. To me. I'd pay anything to get it back.
-How'd it go?
-Faith was on fire!
Where did you learn to act like that?
Years of lying to social workers. You ready?
Good luck, mate.
You took your time!
Frank! Did you get the watch?
Kazima's got it.
-What are you doing?
-She just picked up something!
-What is it?
Just a ring.
Faith's engagement ring.
All right, give him the watch.
Forget the watch. Give me the ring instead.
I can't. It's not mine.
Finders keepers. Nobody knows you've got it.
But I can keep a secret, for the right price.
I tell you what, you give me that ring,
and I'll pay you back everything.
-All the money we ever won off you.
How about that? You can share it with her, if you like.
Have we got a deal?
-Good, let's go.
Do you think they've tried to call me yet?
'Who is it you're after, mate?'
Faith. I need to speak to Faith.
'Wrong number, mate.'
-I must have the number wrong.
-Danny, what happened to your chain?
-That was quicker than I thought.
-Maybe they want this.
-How do you do that?
Who cares? Run!
Bailey thought you might need a lift. Come on, get in!
When we get home, I want to know exactly what's been going on.
We were just helping out a mate.
You should have left it to the proper authorities.
Then Frank wouldn't have got his money back.
You don't even know these people.
You could have got into very serious trouble here.
-Well, we didn't.
Right, well, you're all grounded until you can prove to me
-that you can be trusted.
-What's that about?
And you. Do your parents even know where you are tonight?
-Right, I think I should have a word with them.
It's not my job to snitch on you.
But you have to realise, all of you did a very stupid thing tonight.
And imagine if something bad had happened to you.
How do you think your parents would feel?
Why didn't you tell us what was going on?
I thought I could handle it.
And I did.
Yeah, with a bit of help from the others.
Frank, if you need us, we'll be there.
Don't ever think you've got to face the world on your own.
Mike, I don't need your pity.
Good, glad to hear it, because I don't feel sorry for you.
I'm angry. I mean it.
I do not want to have to go through another day like today.
Do you understand me?
Look, I moved out.
You don't get to tell me off any more.
I don't care how old you are.
I don't care where you live, but I do care about you.
Do you think for one second that that changes
when you walk out that door?
Don't ever do that to us again.
I won't. Promise.
Good, glad to hear it.
So, what do we do now?
Can I move back here?
If that's what you want, we'll try and make that happen.
What about Kazima?
Look after it or I will be very angry with you.
Kaz! Wait! Mike says you can stay here.
Mike said that?
For tonight. He needs to talk to Child Services.
What is Child Services?
-Frank! What did you tell him?
-You told him I was living on the streets?
It is not OK! I could be sent back.
You know what that means.
Mike won't let that happen. Trust him.
It's too risky.
Not as risky as living on the streets!
I can look after myself. I don't need your charity.
But I need to know that you're safe!
Why? What does it matter?
Because I care about you.
I have to go. Goodbye, Frank.
