than this.you're asking too much,
he can't afford it, poor him.right, nestitor?

because i like it too much.look, it was our wedding gift

i'll buy them for her.whether you like it or not.
nestor: okay.fernando: so cute.
[chuckles]alba: why did you come to the
room?i'm talking to you,
don't ignore me.nestor: i'm tired of your
parents, their humiliations,their orders, it's always the
same, i'm tired.alba: you shouldn't talk about
them like that,i remind you we owe them
everything we have.nestor: i worked for what
we have.alba: you work at dad's company.
nestor: yes, but i earn mymoney,
he doesn't give it away.i'm like his slave.
alba: dad's not a bad person,he's good to us,
we wouldn't havethis house if it wasn't for him.
nestor: house i owe the bankfor, and that's why i'm tied up
to your dad.i can't quit because
of the mortgage.alba, i'm tired of his
humiliations and for himto treat like a fool.
tired.fernando: look at all the
presents she picked.they are for her birthday.
alba: you almost bought herthe whole store.
fernando: she's my onlygrandchild, and therefore,
the center of my life.i'll get her anything she wants.
that's what she has amillionaire grandpa for, right?
too bad for the father your momchose for you.
sara: dear, guess what we saw?alba: what?
sara: a great house.fernando: [chuckles]
a beautiful one, with a greatgarden.
the girl will be able to playgladly there.
alba: dad, you know thatmy husband...
fernando: that useless man,no one is taking him
into account.why do you and the child
have to sacrifice yourselves?he's a bad provider, that's what
he is.alba: dad, he really does a lot
for his family.he works hard to give us
neither you, nor my childdeserve to live in this slum.
you're a millionaire's daughter,get it in your head.
not the child of a mediocre guy,i'm tired of coming to this ugly
house.just look at it.
aren't you tired?i choke in here.
you didn't grow up like this.and i won't allow you to live
in this misery.that house will be for you
and for my grandchild.it's already decided.
alba: you can't make that kindof decisions.
i'm married and i haveto discuss it with my husband.
fernando: no, there's nothingto discuss with him.
end of the discussion,it's over.
bring your mother and ia glass of juice, we're thirsty.
we walked for the presents,up and down.
you're so cute!nestor: yes, sir, i'll be right
there.uriel: the boss called you
to scold you again?nestor: i hope it's just
for work.having your father in law
as your boss is not goodat all.
uriel: [laughs]nestor: don't laugh,
it's not fun.i'm going.
uriel: nestor is a fool,no wonder his father in law
does with him whatever he wants.>> hey, it's done.
i increased the budgetand the earnings will be 12%.
uriel: i'd like to go deeper.>> we can make more in 15 days.
uriel: that's good!fernando: right,
nestitor, wait up.wait up.
wait up.a donkey's tail?
you're the laughing stock.everybody makes fun of you.
no one respects you, nestitor.poor daughter of mine.
i'm not asking you,i'm telling you, specially not
here, in my office, don't forgeti'm your boss and you do
as i say, okay?everyone should do as i say.
these are the keys to the housei bought for my child and
grandchild,that's a real home, not your
place.here are the keys.
nestor: i won't take them,because i don't agree...
fernando: be quiet, and do as isay.
i'm not just your boss,i'm your wife's father
and your child's grandpa.so, take the keys.
take them, i say.because my kid and her kid won't
be suffering in that mediocrehouse they live in.
just because of your fake pride.here, take them.
you're moving into that housei bought and that's final.
are you listening?nestor: yes, sir.
fernando: i knew you'd indulgeme.
now, get to work, nestitor.go!
nestor: yes, sir.fernando: quick!
nestor: hey, you did this to me,didn't you?
one day i'll get back at you.>> yes, nestitor, get to work
and stop fooling around.nestor: i'm not joking,
i swear you'll pay.>> oh!
what's wrong with you?weeks later
sara: dear, my grandchild is sohappy.
that's what she needed,a beautiful garden.
fernando: right.sara: you know, dear?
i've been thinking, i'll get mygrandchild a doll house.
and we'll put it...there.
in that part of the yard,what do you think?
alba: thanks, mom, really,the house is great.
i love it, thanks a lot.sara: what wouldn't your dad do
for you, dear?you know, we want the best
for you, you're our only child.and well, there's mistakes.
fernando: you're what i love themost,
you're the most important thingto me, remember.
you're the center of my life,my dear.
another one, higher!higher!
nestor: of course you know whati'm talking about,
stop seeing me as a fooland making fun of me.
we paid 12% more for some goods.you increased the price,
i'm sure you kept that 12%.uriel: i don't know what you're
talking about.nestor: don't try to fool me,
you did that for a long time.i'm sure the legal department
and fernando will be veryinterested in this and
investigate you.okay, i tried to be nice and
keep you from going to jail.>> nestor!
we'll share the earnings,give you half the total.
don't tell on us.uriel: we know you hate
your father in lawbecause he's mean to you.
keep quiet and get something outit.
you'd get good money.nestor: i do hate him,
but that's not the amounti want.
i want a lot more.and since you like easy money,
i'll make you a deal to getmillions of dollars from my
father in law.uriel: i didn't know you hated
him so much.it sounds interesting,
what's it about?nestor: he loves my child,
so much, he even made us nameher after him.
i'm sure he'd pay eight or 10million dollars for her.
>> [laughs]he's joking, right?
nestor: no, it's no joke,this is serious.
uriel: are you telling usto kidnap your kid?
>> are you insane?nestor: no, i hate my father in
law, and this is the way to makehim suffer and get something out
of him.it will be under control,
because we'll kidnap her.we get the money from the old
man and my child will be fine.it's simple.
uriel: it's dangerous.what if something goes wrong?
nestor: i have it all plannedout,
and either you help me, or yougo to jail for some miserable
300,000 pesos.but if you work with me,
you'll get one million dollarseach.
pick, jail, or a milliondollars?
uriel: okay, let's kidnapyour kid.
what's the plan?alba: dad, the puppy is so cute.
fernando: we adopted it,not because i don't have the
money to buy it,but because the poor animal
didn't have a place to live.actually, your mother adopted
it.you know her and animals.
she doesn't want to see themsuffer
and just to indulgethose i love,
i do anything for them.sara: i love you.
fernando: i love you.what wouldn't i do for you?
for my child, my grandchild,everything!
you're what i love the most.alba: oh, dad.
i love you too.you were always so nice to me.
thanks for everything,for buying this house for me.
for loving fernanda so much.fernando: she's the center of my
life.go play, dear.
sara: go with him.it's nice to see kids happy.
hey, but you can't live likethat.
you need furniture.fernando, we have to buy them
everything they need.fernando: and we will, dear,
we will, you'll see.[chuckles]
alba: i love those furniture.i went there once just to look
at them because i know myhusband can't afford them.
fernando: but your dad can.nestor: alba, who gave my kid
that dog?fernando: me, why?
nestor: i don't want it here,so send it back.
fernando: what? your house?this is my child and
grandchild's house.i paid for it, don't forget.
you useless man!nestor: that's the last time you
talk to me like that.whether you like it or not,
i'm married to your child.fernando: i don't like it,
i never liked you,you're a nobody.
you're nothing, weak,good for nothing.
she deserved something else.another man,
not a fool like you!nestor: you'll sallow each
and every word.fernando: no, i won't.
and you, be quiet!no one yells at me at my house.
whether you like it or not,this is my house.
i bought it with my money.so, be quiet!
nestor: look, i won't arguewith you.
alba, this is an ultimatum,that dog is leaving and then you
go upstairs and you go toa house i can afford.
or we're getting divorced.fernando: get divorced,
because neither my child nor thedog are leaving this house.
you have no idea how long i'vebeen waiting for this,
get divorced, you'd do mea great favor.
sara: stop arguing, we'll allregret what was said here later.
let's go to the tableas the family we are.

no arguing.i'll get the child for her

we told her to go to the park'sofficer and tell him she was

caught.uriel: we ran off and we don't
know what happened to her,i swear, agent.

alba: nestor.nestor: alba!
alba: is it true you kidnappedour child?
alba: answer me, nestor.nestor: yes, i did.
alba: where is she, you bastard?nestor: i don't know,

i promise, i'm not crazy.alba: mom, sometimes we think we
see things.but a rose can't appear out
of the blue.sara: it did and i saw it.
and here it is.look at how beautiful it is.
i think it's a sign from yourdad that we'll find fernandita
safe and sound.come with me and put in a vase.
[phone]alba: i'll get it.
hello?yes, that's me.
what?yes, agent, we're on our way.
mom.sara: what now?
more bad news?sara: no, mom, you were right,
that rose was a sign from dad.that we were going to find our
daughter.torres said fernandita
was found.sara: thank god.
what are we waiting for?let's go get her!
alba: thank god, they found her!torres: your mom is coming
to get you.do you want a soda, water,
or coffee?manuel: i'd like some coffee.
torres: sure.diaz, bring us two cups of
where was she?where was she?
torres: manuel found her.alba: where did you find her?
manuel: i sell balloons ina park and that's where
i found her.the girl was all alone
in a corner,first, i thought she was playing
hide and seek.but time went by and i thought
it was odd that no one wentto get her.
so i asked her about herparents.
she couldn't tell me anything.so, i took her home with
my wife and kids.alba: dear, you must have been
through so much.manuel: no, ma'am, she's brave,
she never cried.back home, my wife fed her.
then she started playing withmy kids and she played so much
she fell asleep.then, while my wife was watching
her soap operas, we heard abouther in the news.
i promise you as i didthe agent, that we didn't
kidnap her.alba: it was her own father.
sara: what?alba: yes, mom.
nestor planned the whole thing.sara: what a bastard.
alba: thanks, sir.torres: we found your child.
she's with her mom now.nestor: thanks, virgin.
thanks for listeningto my prayers.
thank you.torres: you're accused for
kidnapping and it's aggravatedfor it being your own kid.
and for murder.nestor: i made a mistake.
i made hate the center of mylife.
alba: welcome home, dear.look who's here.
alba: he's happy to see you.he missed you.
sara: there's something good outof all we've been through.
the innocence of kids is great.alba: go caress him.
fernanda: come, puas.nestor: lack of respect,
physical and verbal aggressions,build up hate and resentment.
when people are too full ofhate, it's considered emotional
illness.and a sick person will become
more aggressive than theaggressors he was a victim of.
to take revenge, he'll make hateand resentment the center of his
life.but the center of your life,
has to be love and kindness.it can't be hate, confrontation
or humiliation.because when the center of our
life is made of bad feelings,we're doomed as humans.
because a humanity full of hatewill only destroy
the center of your life.[music]
