-You're out, Mum!
-Oh, my God, I left the iron on.
-Come on, honey, come on!
-Mum, you promised us some ice cream.
-We'll get some at home.
-But there isn't any at home.
-I think there might be.

I can't hear my show with all this noise!
Your show is finished, I saw.
Spotty quoll wants some orange juice.
All right. There should be one open in the fridge.
-Where? There is not.
-Well, then, look in the pantry.
Good boy, spotty quoll.
No, that's not a real word, is it?
There's too many conson... "Adse..."
I don't... I give up. What is it?
-Glowing with heat?
I know it means glowing with heat, but how did you know that word?
I came top in spelling today.
You can top in spelling today because you're so clever!
You're the smartest girl! FEROCIOUS BARKING
Oh, Jesus! All right, next word.
-What is it, baby? What's the matter?
There was someone in the hallway!
Oh, no. No, there isn't. What did you hear?
There was someone running and breathing like a sick cat.
-Sweetheart, you know what it probably was?
Your sister and I were in the back and that funny little wind-up dog went off.
-Maybe it was that.
-No, Mummy, there's someone in your bedroom.
Well, I'll go and find out, OK?
Wait here for me. Mummy's gonna check it out.
Take care of Spotty.
Don't let him get scared.
I'll be right back.
Come on with me. We've got a game going.
Spotty quoll's starving!
Oh! We might eat soon, eh?
Here we go! What was it, Dad, that Mom used to grow?
Was it primula?
-I'm rushing to pick him up.
He lost his keys.
Lost his keys? That's no good.
That's not good but you're great. Thank you so much. Bye, girls.
-See you in the morning. Be good now.
-Bye, Mum. Love you.
Oh, you know what? Maybe I could pick up some petunia seedlings.
No, they'll just be a nuisance, Soph. Too much watering.
# And you say, "Go slow." #
It's so beautiful. It's the shadows that make it so stunning.
Moment between the owl and the dove.
No, that's back to front. It's not the shadows. It is the quality of the light that counts.
Could you just agree with me for once on our special day?
# Time after time. #
-Do you notice anything?
-Did you organise this?
-Yes, I did.
Here's to the next decade being as great as the last.
# You can look and you will find me Time after time... #
You know what I did today? I finished my first illustration.
-Good for you.
No, I mean it. I know this is a difficult one for you.
So, can you tell me what the secret is?
No, then there won't be a secret.
Sooner or later, everyone's going to see it. You're painting for a book.
-It's public consumption.
-I'm not ready yet.
I always talk to you about my work.
That's because you are so much more talented than I am.
This is certainly true.
This is why my clients treat me like a toad in a swimming pool.
Oh, someone just walked over my grave.
Please. I promise I will not be critical.
So fresh they're jumping right off the plate.
-Are you OK?
-Yeah. I love you.
So, let's celebrate that you finally started. We might as well. We've spent the advance already.
-What did you forget? I dashed home but you'd already turned it off. Thanks.
The iron. Why did you come home?
I didn't come home today.
You must've turned it off.
Oh! Right. You couldn't have come home.
You lost your keys.
I guess I did.
I must've turned it off.
MIAOWING Oh, Ginger.
I'm so sorry.
Ginger Tom! My God, no!
And when do you suggest?
A-ha. Yep, Tuesday.
Tuesday'll be fine.
The frock, it's gorgeous. I love the hibiscus flowers.
-So how are you, darling? How is it all going?
Great. Oh, my God. How embarrassing.
They don't even mention Craig.
I talked about him all the time and his work. They don't even say anything?
It's been out for almost a month.
-His feelings are gonna really be hurt.
-Don't show it to him.
Supermum Sophie, that's... I wish!
It's good publicity.
Now, why I got you in here, head office has trebled the print
run and wants a major launch.
-They're bringing publication forward. They want the final copy by March 28th.
-March doesn't work for me.
-You'll do what you always do.
No, let's stay with April.
Look, darling, I know this is a very hard time for you, but
all the other artists have signed off on that date.
Remember when my mum died?
It took me ages to get over it.
But it does get better, eventually.
I still catch myself trying to phone her.
-How's your dad?
He's very independent.
So anyway, how are you going with it?
I'm worried that you haven't shown me anything so far.
No, I've decided to...
I'm working on something that up until now I've been trying to forget.
Whatever's worth remembering, you'll do it.
I don't know that we're meant to remember everything.
Maybe we'd go crazy if we did.
-Come to bed, Sophie. It's late.
It's OK, I promise I won't look.
I have to work.
Ginger Tom, if you value your life... HE MIAOWS
I'm so sorry about asking you to work late.
I promise I won't make a habit of it.
That's what they all say.
Come on, Jen, we'll be late.
Next time you're coming too.
It's perfect. Enjoy the show.
-Come on then. Thanks again, Mara.
Bye, Craig! See ya!
Jen asked me to help you
with the computer.
Oh, thank you.
I haven't even started inputting yet.
-My assistant got really mucked up by the last IT personnel I had.
-We'll be fine.
-So, how are you settling in?
-Very well, thank you. I love it.
You're all so talented. I find your work inspiring.
Don't look at this, then.
My clients, the mighty Quinns, have changed their minds yet again.
They've decided they need a music room by yesterday.
That's a lovely photo.
Oh, thank you.
That's Sophie, my wife. This is Elly. She's seven.
And that's Ruby, who's 10 going on 21.
They're just gorgeous, Craig.
So, tell me about you.
I'm happily married. One daughter.
-And what does he do?
-I'm afraid he shares my passion for IT.
You can ask him all about that tomorrow when you meet him.
-At the party.
-At the party.
Oh, good. Well done.
Thank you! Now I'm all yours.
I suggested subtle lighting.
Of course, they want it lit up like a toilet block but I'm holding my ground.
-I get layered lighting and a much stronger room as a result.
-You don't need to do it now.
I might leave you to it.
I should get home and help with the kids.
Sophie's been very tired lately.
-She's not sleeping.
-Really? That's not what they said in the article.
Oh, it's... It's really good. Sophie will be very pleased.
-I don't think she's seen this.
-You promised you'd find Spotty quoll!
We will, sweetheart. I promise. C'mon.
Elly, could you turn the volume down a little, please?
She can't find the quoll. We've been searching for 40 minutes. You haven't seen it anywhere, have you?
-No, I haven't seen the quoll. Good morning.
Good morning. Oh!
And the mighty Quinns just phoned.
They say they will consider my proposals.
So there is a God in heaven after all.
-Good. That's an important project, isn't it?
-You know it is.
Elly, do you think it might be possible for you to play with one of your other toys?
-Isn't she too old to play with stuffed toys?
-No, she is not.
No, I'm not! I want quolly.
All right. I will find the quoll.
Sophie, this morning, why don't I look after the kids?
I want you to go out and buy that dress you've had your eye on.
I don't have time. I have to work.
-I thought you might like to wear something special tonight.
-Do I really have to go?
Come on, you said you would.
-What's wrong with my clothes, anyway?
-Sophie, it's a treat.
It's a double celebration.
I finished my plans,
and for you, there's this.
-Oh, my gosh!
-It's very good.
It's totally wrong but...
mum's the word.
Gosh, it makes this... Sounds like I'm a single mom. It doesn't even...
-I talked about you all the time. I'm really sorry.
It's about you, not about me.
-But, Mummy, you have to find Spotty quoll.
-Yes, sweetie. Come, here. Come look at you and Ruby. Look!
-I want my quolly.
-All right, trap it, Elly. Let the great quoll hunt begin.
You shouldn't trap animals, Dad.
You're quite right. You should bite their heads off!
Go and buy that dress.
Do you know what? Everything turns up in the end.
You just have to stand up a little. That looks good! Sexy!
-You think so?
-It's your colour.
Oh, my God, I don't have time.
-I'll take it. I'll take it.
You really think it suits me?
Wow, what a great house and so close to the water.
How much do you pay your IT personnel?
Oh, she's married to an IT entrepreneur, whatever that is.
Whatever that is. It's gonna be an early night, right? I have to work in the morning.
Yeah, of course. And thank you.
-What's that for?
-Cos I love my dress and the guy that gave it to me. Thanks.
All right. Shall we do this thing?
Hi. I'm Helen, Mara's mother.
Good evening. Craig and my wife Sophie.
Lovely to meet you. I've heard a lot about you.
-Would you like me to take your wrap?
Oh, there you are! I was wondering where you'd got to.
What good taste you have, Sophie. Both you and my daughter.
Well, it makes you think, doesn't it?
With all the dresses in the shop, it's amazing this doesn't happen more often.
It's a pleasure to meet you. I've heard heaps about you. Craig talks about you all the time.
Really? Oh, what does he say?
Everything! Everything. You're an illustrator. Hold down the fort.
-You sleep badly at night.
-Oh, he tells you everything.
I just wanted to say I think it's inspiring this book you're doing.
It's such a great topic. What dark secrets will you reveal?
-You'll just have to get the book and find out, I guess.
-I will, I will.
-I'm just gonna go and change my dress.
-Oh, no. You don't have to.
-No, please, you look so much better in it anyway.
# Tell me, tell me lies
# Oh, no, no, you can't disguise
# You can't disguise No, you can't disguise. #
-Thanks. Nice dress.
Thank you. I'm so glad you both could make it.
I want you to meet Jimmy. Jimmy, my husband. Jimmy, come here.
This is Jimmy. This is Sophie.
-Should we dance? Let's dance. You hold that. Come on! Let's dance!
You're Craig, aren't you?
Mara's told me all about you, Craig.
-What did she say?
-Oh, good things.
You know, you're under recognised and full of talent. Are you?
# Tell me lies Tell me, tell me lies
# Oh, no, no, you can't disguise
# You can't disguise
# No, you can't disguise
# Tell me lies Tell me sweet little lies
# If I could turn the page
# In time then I'd rearrange just a day or two
# Close your eyes, close your eyes... #
-GLASSES CLINK Whoops.
You know, I identified with that article of yours.
-Trying to balance work and home.
-Don't believe everything you read.
I have one and that's pretty forlorn. Jessica's eight.
-Oh, my gosh, you look so young!
I just started young.
I managed to get myself knocked up accidentally.
God, it was hard.
But I wouldn't have given Jessie up for anything in the world.
Then a couple of years ago I met Jimmy.
He's been wonderful.
Did you and Craig meet in America?
Yeah, I came here when I was 17.
My dad's from Melbourne and well, he blamed my wild youth on New York
-so, as soon I graduated from high school, he whisked us away to safety.
-How did you find it?
Well, my mom's a New Yorker, was a New Yorker, and, um...
Well, so it's a huge, huge adjustment for her.
She tried to make the best of it.
Craig told me about your mother.
I lost my best friend.
gap that doesn't go away.
Kate was an aid worker.
She was working in Kosovo with abandoned children
trying to reunite them with their families.
One night someone threw a Molotov cocktail through the window and Kate
was killed in the fire trying to get the babies out.
Oh, my God, how awful.
And I miss her so much.
And I keep thinking
if only she hadn't been there. She shouldn't even have been there.
Someone hurt her very badly here.
That's why she went.
I often stayed with her.
We would take endless photos of the orphans.
I'm having an exhibition of them. Will you come?
I'd love to. Thank you.
Imagine what it must be like to burn to death.
-I am cold. You wanna go back to the party?
-# I'll get inside you with a look around #
-You're dancing, honey.
# I'll make you crazy
# And you'll do anything to be with me and we'll be happy again... #
-Not a good time for you, ey?
I heard you're having a few problems with Craig.
But don't worry. He's one of the best blokes around.
I'm sure he'll stand by you.
Who told you that? Come on, you can't say something like that and then you don't tell me who said that.
-the 12-step programme really works and you get to meet some terrific people.
-What are you talking about?
I've been there myself.
I'm not an alcoholic.
-I don't really even drink.
-That's what I used to say.
Are you serious? No wonder everybody's staring at me.
No-one's staring at you. They're not gonna believe a stupid rumour.
People love rumours.
Don't worry. We know it's not true.
There are people there who have kids that are in our kids' classes.
-And she was so certain.
-You know what?
Ever since you started this book, you've been spinning out.
Oh, no, no. Wait a minute, no. This isn't about my work.
-I hate the way you're not sleeping.
-You're worried all the time.
-Just let's get in the car. Oh, great. Mara just saw this whole fight.
Not everyone is staring at you.
GIRLS LAUGH, BABY CRIES
SHE SCREAMS Oh! Oh!
SHE PANTS HEAVILY
-Isn't it perfect?
-How did you know?
-You mentioned that Sophie collects owls. It's a wonderful hobby.
-Did I really say that?
-I must rave on.
Choose me! Choose me! SHE LAUGHS
Are you sure Sophie's out?
Yeah, the kids have taken her shopping.
Let's put it down over here. Down here.
He's so great.
Sophie's got such great taste.
-I think it would look better in there.
-Let's have a look.
-Happy Birthday, Mummy!
It's magnificent, sweetheart.
Thank you. Thank you and you.
-Thank you, sweetie. Where did you find it?
And it looks like a weighs a ton.
How did you ever get it in here?
I had it delivered.
What will you call him, Mum?
I think to begin with it's a she not a he, don't you, Dad?
When I was your age, my mom used to tell me stories about Minerva.
She was a goddess and like a fairy, she flew with the owls.
Do you know if goddesses help find quolls?
-I miss quolly.
-I know you do, baby.
So, what do you think? Is it good in here?
Yeah, I think it is. It's great.
-Can we have a little sneak?
No, no. No, absolutely no.
-No, but we can have some cake.
That's a nice car.
I've been thinking.
Mine is past its use by date.
But then again so am I.
I guess it will see me out.
-If you want a new car, you should have one. I'll help you choose it.
-No. It would be a waste of money.
I like your new car.
I wish. It's not our car.
GIRLS SCREAM PLAYFULLY IN GARDEN
-How are the girls?
-The girls are fine. More at the point, how are you?
There were, there were wasps.
Where did they come from?
There's a wasp plague.
The pest guy says they've been finding nests in all kind of weird places.
Anyway, they got rid of them. They won't be back.
So, it is your car.
Oh, that. No, no. That's not our car.
But I saw you getting out of it!
You went into your house.
You saw someone go into my house?
Well, she dresses like you.
She was wearing a dress like that pretty one of yours.
The one that I love. Splashed all over with hibiscus flowers.
-When was this?
-You know what my memory's like.
But sometimes she looked like she was you.
Wasn't it you?
-What have you done to your face?
I hope it wasn't that nice husband of yours who did that.
-He isn't the type for any of this.
-My key wouldn't...
-I changed the locks, you were in a meeting.
-What happened? Hey!
All right, that's it.
Go watch TV, girls.
Go ahead. Now.
I changed all the locks in the house.
I think someone's been getting in.
My hibiscus dress is missing and Maggie saw a woman in it get out of that blue car on the street.
-You know which one?
-What car, say that again?
Someone stole my hibiscus dress and Maggie saw a woman in it.
Maybe she's the one that came into the house and put the wasps
in the pot on purpose, because I'm not convinced that it's natural.
The pest guy didn't think there was anything unusual.
-What about Spotty quoll?
-Kids' toys get missing.
You said yourself that they always turn up.
These are for you.
I think we should call the police.
This all started when you lost your keys.
It was probably you that Maggie saw in the dress, you know what her memory's like.
Why would someone break into the house and steal a toy and a dress and nothing else?
Anyway, you changed the locks.
That's the main thing. How are you feeling?
-The doctor thought you might be still a bit delirious with stings and all that.
Oh, my God. Well, maybe that's it. I don't know. Thank you.
-Cup of tea?
-Yes, thank you.
Hi. Hi, there.
I was just passing by. I wanted to drop in and see how you are.
It's a fear of mine to be bitten by wasps and there was a whole nest, I heard? Poor thing!
It must have been shocking.
Can I get you a cup of tea or something?
Why don't you just lie down?
No, no, no. I'll get it.
-Why don't you have a seat?
-I'm sorry. We're out of tea.
-It's OK. I'll have coffee.
-No, I'll go next door and ask the neighbour.
A couple of seconds.
-Sorry. I found some.
There was some tea in the cupboard. I poured you a cup. I gotta go.
Jen's just called, the computer's crashed.
I wish I could stay.
Can we get together some time?
-I'd really like that.
Just take...take care.
Mara came by today.
She came by to see how I was doing.
Mm. That's thoughtful.
She was wearing a dress just like my missing hibiscus dress.
-Don't you think that's strange?
-Hm. No, not really.
Craig, it was identical to the dress that I have that's missing!
And the one that Maggie said someone was wearing when they broke into the house.
Well, Mara's never been here before.
She sure seemed to know her way around.
-Well, look, maybe once.
-What do you mean?
She helped me carry in the owl pot.
-OK, I know I said I...
I knew you were lying that day.
-What was she wearing?
-I don't know.
-Was it a hibiscus dress like mine?
-Are you sure?
-Hers was backless.
Why did you lie to me?
I don't know. Maybe because it was your birthday.
I felt bad about it afterwards.
-Why would you need to hide Mara?
-I don't know why! I'm telling you now.
Can we just drop this?
What do you want from me?
-I feel like you're accusing me of something.
Accusing you of what?
-Oh, Sophie, come here.
-What, what? Are you doing anything with Mara?
No, of course not! And I wouldn't. I mean, she's...
-I need to go work.
You need to sleep.
Craig, there's someone in the studio.
-In the studio, someone's in the studio.
-It's all fine, Soph, you just forgot to lock up.
No, I'm positive. I locked up.
You're probably so tired.
You just thought you did.
What if somebody's getting at your keys?
We changed the locks.
What if somebody at the office is getting at your new keys?
I honestly don't think so.
What about Mara?
Please, don't go on about her again tonight.
You know, all this started when she began working for you.
Look, I'm tired. You're tired.
Why don't you take a pill?
Get some sleep and I'll take the girls to school in the morning.
PHONE CONTINUES RINGING
-'Sophie, it's Rina. Just wondering how the book's coming along.'
-Can I pick it up?
They're planning the mother of all launches at the Frankfurt book fair.
I just need to know that you're on target. Darling, I hope everything's OK. Please call.
What time is it?
You didn't come to bed at all, did you?
I found my dress.
Well, there you are. You see, everything turns up in the end.
Have you been smoking? It smells so bad.
I still think it's really strange that she has one exactly like mine.
Yes, Rina, I'll make the deadline.
No, the kids have just, you know, I've been very busy, that's all.
Don't worry if I don't call you. It'll be fine. We'll get there.
I gotta go. Ruby's calling me.
-Did you knock?
-What's that smell?
-Did you knock? You know you're not
supposed to disturb me while I'm working unless it's an emergency.
-Is this an emergency?
-I can't find Buddee.
Oh, an emergency! Use your eyes.
I'll show where to look from now on. And when we're having play dates and I'm working, what's the rule?
You don't disturb me. It's right here.
-You must have taken it to school, Ruby.
-Mum, I'm telling you I didn't.
Well, I put it here. I'm telling you.
It's right... It has to be here somewhere.
-Sophie, what are you doing?
-I'm trying to find Buddee.
Can I help you put things back?
No, no, everything's under control. I'm fine.
If you're not in bed soon, I'm coming to get you.
If you don't sleep, you'll go nuts.
I did not put these in there.
I did not put these in there.
-FAINT VOICES TALKING
-Come on, my beauty, come on.
Hey, Mara, are you there?
Where have you been?
Well, not for much longer.
What do you think you're doing?
My wife didn't want to bring this here but I've insisted.
I cannot and will not allow anything that puts my family at risk.
I have a feeling that Sophie Hartley was watching me
before Mara found her in Jessie's room. What was she doing there?
Your Honour, it is very, very frightening to find someone in your child's room.
It was really odd at the museum.
I hadn't sent the invitations out so she didn't actually know where my exhibition was being held.
And it was so strange that she ran away. We know each other.
And Jimmy thinks she must have been following me.
Your Honour... Your Honour, I know this sounds crazy,
but I believe Mrs Toufiey has been systematically breaking into our house and stealing things.
She stole my youngest child's favourite toy, a computer game named Buddee,
family photos, different kinds of family photos, my dress.
And she put wasps in my studio.
Well, there are lots of wasps around at the moment, Mrs Hartley.
I had them at my place too. It's a plague.
Our neighbour saw her breaking into our house.
Is the neighbour waiting outside?
Maggie's elderly and she's not feeling well and I couldn't get her to come here, but...
I know what I did was wrong and I'm sorry.
But I'm protecting my family.
Mr Singleton, what do you think's been going on?
Your Honour, my wife's under a lot of pressure at the moment.
And I'm inclined to think that it's really my fault.
I should've done more. Her mother passed away recently and I don't think under normal circumstances
she would have broken in like this.
I...I... She's exhausted. She won't sleep.
How could I sleep when someone's breaking into our house,
-taking pieces of our lives?!
-Order! Order! The Court will come to order.
You can stand down, Mr Singleton.
-I think the facts in this case are fairly clear.
I note that neither side disputes that Sophie Hartley was found
in the household of Mara Toufiey and Jim Middleborough.
So I rule therefore on this point of fact.
Please, stand, would you?
You were caught unauthorised in the home of the complainant.
So I have no alternative but to grant an intervention order against you.
You are prohibited from travelling within 500 metres of Mara Toufiey, her family, her home,
or any place where you might reasonably expect to find her.
Furthermore, I strongly recommend that you see counselling at your earliest convenience.
You think I've really let you down, don't you?
I won't work such long hours, you know.
We'll do things together again.
She took my dress.
-The dress turned up.
-She put it back.
C'mon, the dress was here all the time. You just didn't notice it.
Soph, tell me...
..you must promise me, please.
You won't follow Mara again.
I'm home! I'm early.
-She bought an owl pot.
-I saw Mara buy an owl pot exactly like mine.
-When did you see Mara?
Today. Now what does that mean?
Why would she buy an owl pot just like mine?
Was this an accidental meeting or were you following her? You could go to jail.
-She bought an owl pot, just like mine!
-Listen to me!
Since you've been in court, those kids have been hiding in that room like wounded animals.
They know something's going on. Do you want to hurt them more?
I'm trying to protect my family, that's why I'm doing it!
Keep away from Mara. Stop thinking about her.
-I can't believe you're doing this to me.
-It's all about you. It's always all about you!
We hear all about your troubles but since the kids were born, you've never worried about me.
You've never been there for me.
-You've never asked about me.
Can't you see I'm trying? Sit down. I am talking to you!
Oh, Soph, I'm sorry.
Look, even if Mara did do those things,
she can't do them now.
Not now everything's in the open.
So you think it's possible that she did do it?
Of course it's possible.
-Why didn't you say that in court?
-Because there's absolutely no evidence.
And Mara's my employee. I have to think about that.
Well, fire her. She's not indispensable.
-I can't fire her.
-Of course you can. You can make up any reason...
You don't want to fire her because you want her around.
You think about her all the time, don't you? You want her.
Why don't you just admit it?
-Because it's not true!
-You're obsessed with her!
What's going on? This isn't like you.
I can't meet the deadline. It's not worth it.
-I'd like you to give all the advanced money back.
-Don't be ridiculous.
Has Craig seen these?
No, I was gonna show him when I finished the series but now I'm not doing the series.
It's just not really a very...
good time for us.
Ever since my mom died, I've been thinking constantly about what happened,
-but I can't paint it.
-But you have to.
Come on, sweetie.
All right, look, I know that it tastes horrible, but...
let's just do it fast and then we'll chase it down with something sweet, OK?
Come on, that's a good girl.
-Are you giving her more?
-You just gave her that ten minutes ago.
-No, I didn't.
-Yes, you did, Mummy.
-Yes, you did, Mummy.
Oh, my God. Craig! Craig!
-Oh, my God, call the ambulance.
I think I overdosed Elly.
I gave her two times. I didn't remember. I didn't know.
I didn't remember. Oh, my God. I'm so sorry.
-It's all right, we'll make it through.
-It's OK, it's OK.
-Mummy's right here. I'm right here.
-That's good. Let it out.
It's OK. It's only kids' medicine. It's not strong.
-We'll get it out of her system. She'll be fine.
-That's a girl.
Why are you crying such big tears out of those beautiful eyes?
Well, because I have to spin all this straw into gold
or the king will kill me at sunrise.
-Mum, can Rumpelstiltskin be a cat too?
I think so, yeah.
Oh, oh! My goodness. You frightened me.
You look better, slacker.
-We've got you a place in the country so you can work.
Daddy's taking time off to look after us.
Yeah. Ruby and I felt it was time you had a break,
so Jen is lending us her cottage.
It's not far, it's just out at Geelong.
It's quiet there.
You can sleep and finish your paintings.
Then we'll come down on the weekend.
-Well, I thought you could leave on Wednesday.
No, today is Tuesday.
Oh... Yeah. OK.
Is that Mummy?
-What the fuck is she doing in my house?
-Soph, calm down.
Mara's come round to do some work. We're gonna finish some plans.
Don't you let her get anywhere near my girls!
-Where is she? Is she still here?
Of course she's not. I'm sorry.
You're changing the sheets? You never change the sheets.
This is unbelievable. In our bed with the girls still in the house?
Mara has not been in this room.
-Please, I don't want you to...!
-OK, you leave. Go with her!
Go to your girlfriend. Get out! I don't want you in here. Get out! That's it, go!
You are forcing me to say this.
I don't think the girls are safe.
-Don't make this about me.
-You've been following Mara.
You've given the wrong medicine. You don't even know dates!
You're the one that's crazy cos you won't listen to the truth!
-Will you please calm down!
-I am fucking calm!
-Go to bed, Elly.
-I'm not Elly.
I'm sorry, sweetie.
We got a little loud. It's OK, honey.
Come here. Come to Mama. Come here.
-I hate you.
-Come here, come here.
It's all right, darling.
-Where are we going, daddy?
-We're going to Jen's cottage.
-I missed you.
-I missed you too, sweetie.
Ouch, mummy, you're hurting.
OK, well, um... I'm gonna go get the car.
They set the date for my shrink evaluation.
It's the day after we get back on Thursday. Hey, Elly, not so far out!
These supervised visits are a nonsense.
-You'll pass with flying colours, Soph.
You and Craig will sort things out. He'll be back.
I'm glad we're here anyway.
I think I'll even get some petunias when we get home and you can help me plant them.
How's work going?
It's not, really. I, uh...
Lately I've been thinking a lot about
what happened and I had hoped to maybe put us in the book
but now I've decided against doing it at all.
What you do is your business, Sophie.
That sure wasn't true a while back, was it? I didn't have any choice.
You were the one that decided that we would be
yanked from New York and all my friends.
You were only a child.
Yeah. Not so much for a child that I couldn't get pregnant.
You're not smoking again?
I thought you just said it was my business.
who was the father?
Look, it hardly matters now but your mother,
she asked just before she died.
Mom asked that?
Was it that boyfriend of yours, Michael?
No, it wasn't Michael.
It was the prom and we went to a hotel.
Everybody was drinking. I didn't even know what was going on.
Michael got angry, he left. There was this guy there.
Nobody knew him. He was a friend of a friend of a friend.
I don't even remember what he looked like.
I...I was afraid to...
I was afraid to tell you because I just thought it'd make everything worse
and Mom was so unhappy.
And you were so angry.
even know his name, Dad.
Stop, stop! Stop!
-Good luck tomorrow for the evaluation.
-You sure I can't drive you?
-No, no, no, I'm fine.
Ginger! Come here, boy!
Ginger! Here, Ginger.
Come here, Ginger.
I haven't seen him since you left.
I put some food out but he hasn't taken it, Debbie.
I do hope he's all right.
Oh, my God.
Ginger! Ginger Tom!
Come here, boy. Ginger!
Ginger Tom. Ginger! Ginger Tom!
Ginger? Tommy? Ginger!
Ginger? Ginger To...
-Come here, boy. Come here.
Mara, I thought you'd gone to work.
No, I just dropped them off at the bus.
Seems OK. Maybe they cleared off when the alarm went.
I'm just gonna check down here.
You know you're the most talented one here.
I know you are, anyway.
-What have I done now?
-Well, I was just fixing Jen's Internet and I couldn't help noticing her e-mails.
One email in particular mentioning an esteemed partner, Mr Craig Singleton.
The mighty Quinns are incredibly pleased with their house.
They love the textured lighting in the music room so much so
they've talked their mate Christos into giving you the commission!
You've won it!
You've won it! Jen's out now buying champagne and the Quinns are insisting on telling you themselves!
I thought they wanted more bloody changes!
Congratulations. It is so great when it happens to someone who deserves it.
I'm so proud of you.
There'll be green belts and lakes.
It's solar power and light.
It'll be...it'll be beautiful.
Just a sec.
-I can't do this.
-Sh. Trust me.
Oh, come on. Fuck me.
'Craig, your school's on line one.'
Hello. I'm so sorry. I've been held up.
I'll be there right away.
Is something wrong?
I completely forgot about the girls.
Don't, Craig. You have to take that meeting. I'll pick the kids up.
-They'll be fine.
-Are you sure?
Hi, girls. Hop in. Your dad sent me.
-This is like the car Grandpa wants to buy.
Is it yours?
No, it's Jimmy's car.

What have you done now, Sophie?
You've broken into my house again?
Are you aware of what this means?
I'm gonna make it so hard for you.
You are so good.
-You know that, you even had me convinced I was crazy.
It's my word against yours.
You know, let's just go upstairs and talk this thing through.
-I know everything I need to.
-Are you afraid?
I think you're afraid that I'm gonna reject you again.
It must have been horrible.
Then you get your hopes up and you're imagining all that
time who I am and then you finally find me and I'm pregnant with Elly.
You poor thing. You know, I did, I thought about you all the time.
When they first took you away from me,
I would sneak back to the children's home night after night and I'd hide,
wondering if you were still in there.
You know, under that big tree where the owl was all the time.
And now, look at you. You are so beautiful.
And you have Jimmy and Jess.
Jess is Jimmy's daughter, not mine.
I'm a liar, just like you.
I am so sorry.
# I'll make you crazy... # MIAOWING
It's Ginger Tom.
-No, he's not. He's ours.
-Where's his collar?
Dad, Ginger Tom is our cat, isn't he?
God! Oh, God!
-FIRE ALARM SOUNDS
-Get everyone out. Is Jessie with Mara?
-We'll get Jessica.
-I don't know where Mara is. Come on!
Stand right there.
FIRE ALARM CONTINUES
FLAMES BLAZE, COUGHING
Mr Singleton? If you want, we can get rid of the clothes. They're ruined.
We have emptied the pockets for you.
Why don't you go home and get some rest? She won't wake till the morning.
The girls are with your dad. They're still asleep.
I have something that I have to tell you and I...
No, Soph, I already know.
-Try not to be angry...
-I already know.
They gave me your stuff last night and I saw the birth certificate.
I am so sorry.
I should've told you from the very beginning. I waited and the longer I waited the harder it got.
-It's me that should be sorry.
-I really did wanna tell you.
I felt so ashamed, though.
It always would've been fine.
I don't want any more secrets between us.
How are the girls?
They're confused and shaken, but...
They'll be better when you're home.
-Soph, there's something I need to tell you about Mara...
The past is the past.
Let's start fresh.
I love you.
How is she?
Does she have visitors?
I don't think you should see her.
I don't want you to go anywhere near her. Please.
You think you can just march in here after all this time?
I came to ask your permission to put you in the book that I'm doing.
I have to write a text to go with my pictures.
I wanna write about us.
I was just a...
scared kid when they
made me give you away, but...
Later, when you came to find me, I...
I don't have an excuse.
I was stuck in a children's home till I was ten.
I was just fostered out over and over like an unwanted dog.
You have every right to be angry with me.
You were very brave to seek me out. I was a...
I was a coward.
You don't know me.
You don't know anything.
You're right, I don't know you.
And that's my loss.
Can you forgive me?
It's all right.
-I won't leave you again.
-Do you promise?
Cross your heart and hope to die.
Hope to die.
You can't be in here.
Were you signed in? Are you on the list?
I'm her mother.
SOMEONE CUTS PAPER WITH SCISSORS
