How long since you heard from him?
Paton knows more than he's letting on.
It's a bit convenient Turnbull just vanishing, do you not think?
Well, I've got a child that needs a foster placement.
His name is Finlay MacKay. He's known as Finn.
Sandra - hi, it's Robbie.
'Is Finn with you?'
He might be looking for his big sister,
he's done that a couple of times before.
The one that was adopted?
Who lives there anyway?
Just a girl.
A girl? Is that it?

HE KNOCKS ON DOOR
Finn? It's time to get up.
Yeah, I'm coming.
Is Finn up?
He should be, I shouted on him.
Finn, that's your breakfast out.
I'll drop him off, it's on my way.
Is that not a wee bit of a riddy?
Loads of kids get dropped off at school.
If they ever make it there.
Right, Finn, come on.
You cannae be late for your first day.
Right, come on, it's your turn.
What are you doing? You're supposed to knock first.
We have been doing for the last half an hour.
Have you seen the time?
Close the blind on your way out.
Come on, up.
Oh, it's nice to see you up before lunchtime.
What cereal are you going to have?
It's fine. I ain't got time.
I'll make you a bit of toast, it'll not take two minutes
and you can eat it on the way.
I think I just need some money for lunch.
It's a good time to meet mates and that
if you go to lunch with them.
-There you go.
So, you'll be getting your subjects today.
Any thoughts on what you might be taking?
I better go. I'm going to be late.
Well, you look the part.
Are you not going to tuck that wee bit in?
It's fine, just ignore me.
You all set? I'll give you a lift.
It's all right, I'll get the bus.
-I'll see you later.
I would be. First day.
I've had loads of first days.
Loads of schools as well.
What was the last one like?
Well, this one has a good reputation,
especially for sports.
Well, at least there'll be one friendly face.
Well, good luck.
See you later, yeah.
SCHOOL BELL RINGS
Just wait one second, OK?
We're in here.
SCHOOL BELL RINGS
Would you like me to show you the way?
No, I'm going to go.
You're skiving on your first day?
I've got more important things to do.
Cool. I'll just come with you.
Sorry, but this is private.
I thought we were mates.
Yeah, we are mates. So be a mate and don't tell anyone.
Look after this for me.
I'll see you later.
Put it in your locker, yeah?
Aye, I know, it was the same again this morning.
It's like trying to wake the dead.
Just pull the covers off him - he'll soon get the message.
No, you cannae dae that.
A teenager's bedroom is their sanctuary.
Will's already broken the golden rule by going in without being asked.
I suppose he wouldn't have got much privacy in care, would he?
Do you know what? I'd hate that.
See the thought of somebody keeping a file on your every move...
I know - we just want to do the right thing for him
while he's with us.
I've been doing a bit of reading on the internet,
about teenage behaviour,
just to get an idea about what goes on in their minds.
Good for you.
I bet you didnae know that teenagers' brains rewire themselves.
-They're like this bundle of raging hormones -
emotions all over the place.
They fall in love at the drop of a hat.
But they cannae express themselves,
so they think that nobody understands them.
So they're always looking for something -
trying to find answers.
You've got all this to come with that Callum.
He might be cute and cuddly now, but he'll change.
You know, Cal's not much older than Finn was when he was in care.
I could greet just thinking about it.
I suppose at least some of these kids have got a chance,
especially with good folk like you about.
Aw. Thanks, Kelly.
I wouldn't be a teenager again for a million quid.
MOBILE PHONE RINGS
See when I think about it, I must have had my poor ma's heart roasted.
No, thanks for letting me know.
-I'm sorry but the person you...
-So, both dates?
-MOBILE PHONE RINGS
-OK, thanks, guys.
-'Hi, that was the school on the phone.'
Finn went to registration and he's now dogged it.
-'Have you tried his mobile?'
'It's just going straight to voicemail.'
OK, I'll sort it. Leave it with me.
MUSIC: "The Keeper (Banks Remix)" by Bonobo
# My heart's content
# I say that to please her
# Happiness is on her face
# It's the mind that greets her
# Only my disgrace
# To admit I need her
# But we all fall from grace
# Dust me down and keep her
# Sat down here with my head hung down
# And I just seem to find
# A bit of peace, a bit of love
# A bit of something left behind
# Sat down here, best intentions
# Nothing said, nothing lied
# A bit of peace
# A bit of love
# A bit of something left inside
# We shall go on
# In this embrace
# Cos we can't go on
# Living this way. #
Hi there, I'd like to see Kirsty Lindsay if possible.
-Follow me through.
Kirsty Lindsay, please.
Kirsty, do you know where Finn is?
Did he say where he was going?
Kirsty, this is serious. You're not doing him any favours.
He just said he had something important to do.
look, you're his friend. You know what's going on with him.
He could be in trouble.
There is this girl...
That boy is driving me round the bend.
Can you excuse me a minute?
What is it?
That was Will.
Remember what I was saying to you about raging hormones?
What did you even end up getting?
Eh, just this stuff when I went away.
That looks like...
Do you have a problem with that?
-Is it for Mum?
Can I help you?
Catriona Ellis, she does live here, right?
Yeah, she stays here.
What do you want her for?
I just want to speak to her, that's all.
Who are you?
I want to surprise her.
Does she know you from school?
Who are you?
Well, if you knew Catriona was, you'd know who I am.
Who are you?
Just let me talk to her, will you?
I think you better go.
Can you just get her for me?
Are you all right?
How did you find me?
I kind of forced it out of Kirsty.
She told me your ex-girlfriend lived around here.
Yeah, I thought she did, but...I think she's moved now.
I just don't know where to.
MOBILE PHONE RINGS
ANSWER MACHINE MESSAGE PLAYS
-'Hello, Mrs Turnbull, it's Raymond Henderson here.
'I was just wondering if you've heard anything from Eric yet?
'Well, you can get me on this number. It's 07700 900631.
-Something I can do for you, Raymond?
I was just wondering if you'd heard from Eric Turnbull.
Turnbull? No, why?
Last I heard, his wife hadn't seen him for over a month.
-It's like he's vanished.
-You've spoke to his wife?
What did she say?
That it's not unusual for him to take off.
So what's the problem?
Never for as long as this.
She's getting worried.
And so am I.
See, Eric had arranged to meet up with me a while back,
but he never showed.
I didn't know you two were friends.
Well, I was just getting to know him when he disappeared.
-I wish I could help you.
-I don't believe you.
-I think you're being economical with the truth.
-And why would I do that?
Cos you're covering something up
to protect you and your pals behind this development.
The same way you did when you hung Eric out to dry
when things went wrong.
Listen, I hired Turnbull.
He did a dodgy report, remember.
He set this development back two years
and cost a lot of men their jobs and almost cost me my business.
So, that's it? You just wash your hands of him?
You don't care what happens?
I didn't say I don't care.
-Somebody's got to know where he is, what's happened to him.
-It's no' me.
Well, I'm going to find out who does.
You never mentioned you had a girlfriend.
-There you go.
Not any more.
Sorry about that.
If you need someone to talk to...
Why did you go see her?
Did you think you could change her mind?
But you've had the past few weeks.
Why did you leave it till the first day of school?
-So was this.
..the first day of school is always the worst.
But this morning, you said...
I'm never in a school long enough to make mates.
I get hassle as soon I open my mouth.
That's why I get into fights, idiots trying to follow me round...
..trying to get me to talk, so they can wind me up.
I had the same stick. Just rise above it.
Yeah, that's easy for you to say.
I'll deal with it.
Finn, are you OK?
He's fine. He's just a bit upset.
Where did you find him?
He says he was at his "ex- girlfriend's."
Do you not believe him?
I think he was looking for his sister again.
Well, he's done it before.
But he promised.
Have you told Sandra?
No, not yet. Do we have to tell her everything?
But that's the rules.
He hasn't broken any rules, Rob.
We could all get into trouble.
Look, if Sandra intervenes now, it's not going to be good for Finn.
Is that what you want?
The kid's had to deal with red tape all his life.
Can't we just cut him some slack for once and deal with this ourselves?
Just when we think we're getting to know him.
Well, that's going to take a bit of time.
Well, as long as he's here, there has to be boundaries.
He cannae just take off when he feels like it.
He needs to know this is serious.
Just leave him. We've had that conversation.
There's no point in going over it again.
Right, well, I suppose the main thing is that he's safe.
Where are you going?
To take him back to school.
You're no' worried about Raymond Henderson?
I am worried about protecting my business.
A business that's already struggling.
Raymond's worried about what's happened to Turnbull.
Maybe we should be asking more questions.
Turnbull will turn up when he's ready.
What if he doesnae?
It would suit Frank just fine if he never showed up.
You think he's had him bumped off?
This is Frank Paton we're talking about, not Tony Soprano.
I'm not saying that.
What if Turnbull's the one that leaked the report to the press?
And then he disappears? You don't think that's suspicious?
Just let me speak to Frank.
And you stay away from Raymond.
Hi, it's me.
Just to let you know, we might have a problem.
Thanks for coming in.
Alan's been getting some attention.
It's making him nervous.
What kind of attention?
From a local guy, Raymond Henderson.
He's been asking Turnbull's wife about his whereabouts.
When she couldn't give him any answers, he's moved onto Alan.
And what's Alan told him?
What can he tell him? He doesn't know anything.
Look, I know what Eric's like -
he's probably jumped on a flight to Spain.
He does that when the mood takes him.
There's loads of work over there for a man of his calibre(!)
Who is this Raymond Henderson?
He was one of the investors.
Well, he's taken his money back out.
I think he had an attack of conscience.
Said he didn't want to make money out of his neighbours' misery
or words to that effect.
Sees himself as a man of the people, does he?
Well, you'd need to ask Eileen Donachie that.
She's his ex.
Look, you tell Alan from me
there's nothing for him to worry about.
Steering any development through like this can be tricky.
The last thing we need right now is a troublemaker like this Henderson
drawing the wrong kind of attention to it.
All right, I'll speak to Alan.
-I'll take care of it.
-Thanks. I'll be in touch.
-See you later.
-He was just feeling a bit ill. First day nerves, I think.
You're feeling better now, aren't you?
Call me or Mr Fraser any time.
-Figures of speech.
I was right though, wasn't I?
You were at your ex's?
So, what's she like?
Got this big beautiful smile and big blue eyes.
Always happy and having a laugh.
She's so beautiful.
She sounds too good for you.
You don't know what you're on about.
Sorry, I just think that she's way out of your league.
..forget about her.
First day of school and he's getting in trouble already?
-What's Sandra saying about it?
-She doesn't know.
Will's sorted it out with the teacher.
Is that not showing him that
he can just take off whenever he feels like it?
We're trying to give the wean a chance, Kelly.
So what do you believe, then?
Was it the girlfriend or the sister?
I don't know what to believe.
He's so unpredictable.
It must be hard for you.
Must be hard for him an' all,
getting his heart broken at that age.
And I was as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike.
I know I'm no an agony aunt, but I did nothing.
-He probably thinks I don't even care.
-Of course you do.
All you've done is talk about him since you got back.
You know, you can still fix this.
I don't know. Surprise him! Buy him something.
Raymond's got the wrong end of the stick about Turnbull leaving town.
He's got a habit of jumping on a flight to Spain
at a moment's notice and doing the odd survey job.
I'm not convinced.
You might be,
but I still think there's something wrong here.
Gie us a whisky, son.
Well, don't tell him that.
Just screw the nut.
We've got far too much money riding on this.
Raymond, can I buy you a pint?
-I can buy my own, thanks.
-A peace offering for earlier.
I was out of line as well, accusing you like that.
It's just frustrating when you're no' getting any answers.
But I know there's something wrong.
Let's think about this logically.
This development's been put back two years because of Eric.
A lot of guys, me included, were relying on that work.
Is it not likely that he's just laying low till it all blows over?
When I seen him, he was frightened.
He told me things.
It doesn't matter. I need to go.
DOOR SLAMS SHUT
Yeah, well, that's me in.
I'll speak to you later. Bye.
SHE BREATHES NERVOUSLY
Don't worry. I'm not going to hurt you.
Who are you?
What do you want?
I think I'm your brother.
Look, that's me.
Where did you get this?
The care home, they gave it to me.
I know it's all a bit of a shock.
I said get out!
What's wrong with you?
I only want to talk! What are you scared of?
My family will be back soon.
I am your family.
Look - that's you, right?
You had a little brother.
Am I right?
Am I right?
How did you find me?
It weren't easy, you know.
When I saw the photo...
..I just knew it was you.
Do you remember?
-..a wee boy.
-Yeah, that was me.
What else do you remember about me?
Sorry, that's all you remember, yeah? Sorry(?)
Well, what do you expect?
You break in, you tell me that you're my brother
and I'm supposed to be OK with that?
What else was I supposed to do?
I was watching the house and I just thought...
You've been watching me?
I just saw you at the shops this morning and that,
I just wanted to get closer to you,
see what you liked and that, that's all.
Look, my life's here with my family.
I am your family.
I've waited years and years to find you...
..and you treat me like this?
Are you scared of losing it?
Scared of losing all this?
Your little suburban lifestyle, all your olives and all that?
Look, just get out!
All I want is you to be my sister, that's it.
I don't want nothing else, just want a sister.
You're my blood, you're my big sister.
(Just be my sister.)
DOOR SLAMS SHUT
Are you all right, Sis?
How did he get in here?
-How did you get in?
She's not your sister, mate.
She is. And you're scaring her.
She's not your real sister.
-What are you talking about?
-Don't listen to him.
Who the hell are you?
I told you, I'm her brother, her real one.
-What're you talking about?
-I don't know.
That's Catriona when she was younger and that's me too.
-Harry, call the police.
-She's my sister, mate.
-Harry, call them!
-Hear me out.
What you doing? Come on, at least hear me out.
What you doing? Hear me out!
Get off me.
# I don't know if I can do this alone
# Oh, after all our sweet love is flown
# I've been a-running, I've been skipping like a stone
# And I don't know if I
# I can do this alone... #
I want to speak to my dad. DC Cooper.
# When I met her
# She was standing by a door
# I ain't never seen a light like that before
# Now she's left me for something more sure
# And I don't know if I
# If I can do this any more... #
# Cos lovers will come
# Lovers will go
# This rare seed are from which
# True love might grow
# If you see her
# Won't you please say hello?
# Cos I don't know
# If I can do this alone. #
MUSIC: "No Problem" by Perfume Genius
-Get off me!
Come on, mate.
Just calm down.
Just calm down, mate.
All right, that's it.
That's it, just calm.
All right, mate.
All right, mate.
Sh, come on.
'You could have told us what was going on.'
Would you have sorted it so I could see her?
She didn't even remember a thing about me.
I bet her family wanted it kept that way.
They didn't want you to have any contact with her.
You knew that.
Yeah, I thought it would have all changed when she saw me.
Finn, we want to help you.
But you have to trust us.
I've trusted people who've wanted me in their family before.
Always ends up my bags packed and Sandra waiting for me in the car.
How do I know you're not just like the rest of them?
We wouldn't do that to you.
We all make mistakes.
Do things we're not proud of.
But sometimes, we're given a second chance and you can turn that around.
I know it feels like, I know what rejection feels like,
especially from a family member.
When my dad found out I was gay,
it was like there was a death in the family.
But I should be used to the knock-backs by now.
I've had them from so many different families.
I was always just "Finn"
who stayed for a couple of weeks,
maybe even a month.
I don't even know who Finn's supposed to be.
When I found Catriona, I thought it was all going to make sense,
in this head.
I wouldn't be so messed up.
But the way she reacted...
..that's the last thing I expected.
Well, breaking in wasn't one of your better ideas
but it's nothing we can't put right.
Now I'm arrested.
Well, the officers spoke to Catriona and her brother
and while they made it clear they don't want anything to do with you,
they don't want to make things worse for you, either,
so they've asked us not to press charges.
What's Robbie going to say?
Well, knowing Robbie, he'll take it personally,
feel like he's failed you in some way.
I don't want him to feel like that.
He found his sister, but it didn't go so well.
There was an altercation and the police were called.
I think he'd built up this picture of what it would be like
when he found her but she didn't want to know him.
He's taken it badly.
So he comes back here and trashes the place?
I cannae get my head round this. Is this normal?
-It isn't, is it?
-It's what we signed up for.
Aye, drinking wine with his pals is one thing, but this?
-This is heavy.
-It doesn't mean we can't deal with it.
We are calling Sandra this time.
I mean, really tried, and this is what we get?
I'm sorry, I don't know if I can do this any more.
Just leave him. He needs time to himself.
Do you have any idea what that kid's going through?
The frustration, the desperation.
He needs help.
Isn't that what fostering is all about?
Not turning your back on them, but giving them a home, security,
someone they can trust?
Isn't that what we signed up for?
MUSIC: "How It Ends" by DeVotchKa
How was your visit?
With your ex?
You went back to see her, didn't you?
-I was just wondering how it went?
-Why are you sorry?
I don't like seeing you upset.
I thought you'd be happy.
Why would I be happy that your girlfriend just dumped you?
You tell me.
Why are you always round me anyway?
And you're happy with that, yeah? Us just being "mates?"
Have you any idea the hassle I had to take today because of you?
No-one asked you to.
Don't take it out on me just because your girlfriend dumped you.
You know nothing about my life, nothing,
-so stay out of it, yeah?
-OK, fine by me.
Is this her?
I'll get my things, let Sandra know, yeah?
Look, Will's told me everything.
It's no excuse for what I did.
Listen, Finn, we know you've been through a lot.
We want to help, but we're brand-new at this.
Maybe it's us that needs the help, eh?
-I'll pay for the damage.
-It's not about the money.
It's about trust.
We can try and put this behind us. Move on.
MUSIC: "Glasgow Love Theme" by Craig Armstrong
You know, I'm really impressed with the way you handled that today.
-You didn't do so badly yourself.
-No, I'm serious.
I could never have done any of that on my own.
You really stepped up to the plate for Finn.
I'm proud of you.
We've had easier days.
You're no' kidding.
Tell me we can do this.
I hope so.
So he was tailgating you
-and the next thing you know, he'd shunted your back end?
How much do you reckon's there?
Must be close to a couple of grand, in each bundle.
Please tell me it was an accident,
not something you and your pal cooked up together.
I bet you're going to tell me your pal's motor's a write-off, right?
It's too early to say.
Do you think it's one to claim on the insurance?
Bob, they're no' after us.
See if they were, we'd both be hauled down to the station by now.
Then we get out while we can.
What brings you back so soon?
Questions, always questions.
