Oh, Mum. What time is it?
No, no, I'm up. I just haven't had any coffee yet.
Do you remember Mary Coulter?
She was an aunt of that funny kid with the limp.
He used to go to school with you on the bus.
- No. - But do you remember him?
He's put a nice notice in here.
"In a while, crocodile. Love, Rick. "
- They must've said that to each other. - It doesn't do so much for me.
Oh, I like it.
Everyone I've known and loved is in this book.
- You didn't know Sammy Davis Jr. - I did. I met him at a party.
He kissed my hand and told me he was very pleased to meet me.
- That's not knowing somebody. - It was to me.
I'm sure he meant it at the time. At least he said it.
Which is more than your father managed in 20 years.
Anyhow, your job is to put the final clipping in here.
Mine. And then it will be complete. And that's it. A life.
It's sick being that preoccupied with deaths.
There's nothing sick about death. It's part of life.
You think it can be avoided. It can't.
- I've left my washing in your laundry. - Hand me the, yeah, glue stick.
- Hi. - Hey.
- Get done? - I would've if it hadn't crashed.
- Baird's looking for you. - What for?
He didn't say. He seemed a bit flustered.
First, he was coming here, and you were doing it.
Then we were both gonna do it, and I was just gonna be around as backup.
Now he's not coming here, I'm doing it and you're not doing it at all.
Something like that.
I'm not traipsing around the desert with some Japanese prick...
...who wants a glorified tour guide! I'm a geologist!
Not a bloody geisha! You haven't factored in the landfall properly here.
Why can't he come?
He doesn't want to. I don't know.
- Well, have you asked him? - Of course.
- What does he want? - How would I know?
- Sandy, he's Japanese. - They're not interested in exploration.
They're not gonna buy it.
Is this the original data?
- We need this deal. - You do it!
It's Jamie's 5th birthday, for God's sake!
Just, Sandy, don't fuck it up.
- And how do you say that? - Tachibana Hiromitsu.
- Which one's the surname? - I don't know.
Some bloody partnership.
Sandy, it's me. It's Baird. Look, sit tight till you hear from me.
I'm not sure where he is. I'll keep you posted.
It's Baird, by the way.
Hello. It's Eddie with a message for Sandra.
I really enjoyed the other night. It was great.
Perhaps we could do it again.
I'll be back in town on the 9th and then again on the 15th and 17 th.
Hope to hear from you soon. Bye.
Hi, it's Jane. It's 2 p. m.
Just wondering about strategies for the tennis Thursday night. Call me.
Sandy, it's me. It's Baird. Listen, I've got him on a plane.
He's in Alice Springs, but he'll meet you there in Hedland.
Sandy, you've obviously left work.
I guess you won't be playing tennis if you're going to the Pilbara.
I'm sorry. I'm really sorry. Okay?
I'm really sorry. It can't be helped. It's work.
- It's the finals, Sandy! - I'm sorry. Okay?
Just say no. Have you ever heard the word?
How many times?
Hey, do you know anything about the Japanese?
Jane. Hey, Jane, come on. There'll be other finals.
Tell me about the Japanese.
Got any decent coffee?
Yep. Sure. Help yourself.
Yeah, but can't he get a taxi?
You could've told me sooner.
Mr. Tachibana Hiromitsu?
Hi. Oh, thank God.
Sorry I'm late. Time just got away on me.
That's it. I'm Sandy Edwards from Edwards and Baird.
Nice to meet you.
Is this your luggage?
It's okay, we'll just put it in the back. We're not going very far.
Is it hot enough for you?
How are you finding the heat? Does the hot weather bother you?
Yeah, I don't like it much myself.
At least we've got air conditioning, when the stupid thing gets going.
I might just see if I can find the news.
I've got a little puppy I wanna give away...
Yesterday's stars, today's stars...
- Yes. Private. Absolutely. - Oh, thank God.
We've got plenty of interesting things for you to see.
We recycle all the water on this plant. We try not to waste anything.
It's bore water from the De Grey River.
De Grey River doesn't flow for most of the year...
...but it's always flowing underground, you know?
We can load up to 10,000 tons an hour.
We mine almost 70 million tons a year.
About 900 million over the last 30 years.
Your company owns 8 percent of that entire enterprise.
Baird. No, not yet!
- Half of everything out of the harbor. - I'll call you later.
- Isn't that right, Tom? - Yes. Yes. See you.
We can handle twenty ships...
...of up to 260,000 tons of dead weight simultaneously.
The turnaround time for a carrier is 65 hours.
Average loading time per ship is 25 hours.
Last year, we shipped just over 68 million tons.
So, what's on tomorrow? Going out to the mine?
Oh, yeah, why not? It's only five hours away.
Seen it all, Cassandra?
The biggest open-cut iron-ore mine in the world.
And I'm sure Ms. Edwards will show you...
...a very good time, Tachibana-san.
I'll certainly do my best, Mr. Tabachana.
Go on, mate. Show us how it's done.
- No! - Go on, get up, get up there.
- Come on. Give us a rendition. - Go on.
- What's he really here for? - Stuffed if I know.
I'm trying to sell our software.
You tell me.
"Glen to glen. "
Hey, brilliant, mate!
You all right?
Can you get up?
Come on. Get up.
You all right? Can you walk?
Come on. Come on!
Are you gonna chuck?
All right. Hold on.
Move your arm.
Of course I do. I've just gotten in, so don't give me any crap.
I had to eat bloody karaoke and drink sake all night.
You know what I mean.
Get real. The guy's a jerk. A real jerk.
Boring as bloody cat shit.
It's hard to sell if he won't talk about it.
Did they phone you or what?
And they said they wanted to look at our stuff?
What do you mean, "not exactly"?
If you want him to come and see, you come and show him yourself, okay?
Yes, of course I will!
Okay. Thanks. Thanks heaps. Yep. Bye. Bye.
I hate karaoke.
When is the first town? How long?
No town between Hedland and Newman.
It's just five hours of driving. That's it.
- Do you need to stop? - Stop? What for?
To go to the toilet or anything.
No town, no toilet.
- Hot enough for you? - Yeah.
You could fry a lizard in this heat.
Welcome to Newman, Tachibana-san.
Would you like to have lunch or tour the mine?
The original hill was 185 meters above plain level...
...and the final pit will be about 325 meters below plain level.
It's 5.5 kilometers long and not quite 1.5 kilometers wide.
Very good blast.
He needs a red ticket
Can I get it later, When Jim comes back?
No you can't
I can get it in 5 minutes!
You are holding up the queue!
Bring the chopsticks
Just stand up over there.
Have one of these.
It is not red!
Come on boy, move it on!
What would you like?
Two roast-beef and veget things
Do you want me to get you something else?
A soup or a salad?
No, thank you.
This is the stuff we're after. Feel the weight, 68-percenter.
This is crap, this program. You ought to get ours.
This is our software. You wanna see some of it?
- Tomorrow, I will go there. - Pardon?
- Tomorrow, I will go there. - Where?
To where this piece of ore came from.
That's a bit tricky, mate.
- We can't do that. - It is possible?
Well, yeah, but it's a bloody long way.
- I could arrange it, but you... - Yes! You can arrange it. Thank you.
Miss Edwards is driver.
I'm not going out there. Forget it.
It's just debris and a desert.
...you have a lot of space, no people.
...we have many people, no space.
You ready to go?
There is nothing.
It scares me.
We go further.
- Further where? - There.
What, straight out there?
There's barely even a track. We don't have a permit.
Yes. We go there.
No, this is it. This is as far as we go.
You get out! I will go!
Look, there's no one else around for miles. There's just you and me.
That's it. Okay?
Mr. Suzuki from Iron and Steel Company Kobe sends his regards.
Go back now? We go back now?
- No. We can't. - Why not?
You think I can just stop and turn around in this?
If you stop, you're stuffed. Now, shift your camera.
Well, this is good.
There's nothing to stick the winch onto.
Don't you know anything?
If you wanna get out of here, get off that phone...
...and do some digging.
And I'm really sorry I'm not being very polite, but I'm serious!
Do you think we could talk about how we're gonna get out of this bog?
Okay, hang on, hang on. I'll yell when I'm ready.
- Are you ready? - Okay, okay.
- Okay, now, ready? - Okay!
One, two, three, go! Go!
Forget it! Forget it!
We're gonna have to make a dead man.
Bloody stupid electric piece of shit!
Can I use your phone?
Hiromitsu, can I use the phone?
One more time. Try again.
I clear more, and I push harder.
You drive stronger. More acceleration.
I don't think that's going to work. It's bogged!
It's up to the axles. The winch is burnt out.
It's not gonna get unbogged. We need to get help.
No. No help. I can fix.
I don't think this is gonna work.
People die out in this country. Often.
Lots of people, all the time.
You can die of dehydration and heat exhaustion in no time at all.
Nobody will look for us out here.
Can I just ring and tell somebody where we are?
- No problem. I am fixing it. - Look, I won't say we're stuck, okay?
I'll just say where we are...
...and that's it, okay? Nothing about being stuck.
I'll just call my friend.
Just my friend Jane.
No. It's not working. I can't make it work.
- Some problem. - What problem?
I will walk back and find someone. How far have we come?
No. One thing about the Australian desert:
- Never leave your car. - How far have we come?
I don't know, 50 kilometers.
- Twelve hours' walk. No problem. - Oh, for God's sake.
- Wait. - What?
"Survival in arid Australia. Do not leave your vehicle. "
And you know what else? It's gonna get cold.
"Minus 5 degrees at night. "
Coldest just before sunrise.
You should put your shirt on.
That sun will burn you when it kicks in.
- We did it! - We did it!
Get in! Get in! Get in! Quick! Quick! Quick! Come on!
On the road again
On the road again
On the road again
I just cant wait to get on the road again
I just cant wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
and I just cant wait to get on the road again
I wanted to kill you...
...after we were bogged.
With my bare hands.
What is this "hai"?
Yeah, "hai. " I mean, what does that mean?
- It means "yes. " - "Yes"?
But not "yes" like in English.
It means, "I am listening.
Go on. Yes. "
Hai is "what. "
Hai is "I don't know. "
Can be just thinking. And sometimes...
...it means "no. " But no one says no.
Just hai, which means "yes. "
Even if they mean no?
In the desert...
...I was wrong.
It is very bad to make so many mistakes.
So I must fix them myself.
And that's why you couldn't ring?
And then I read the book.
I begin to understand.
And then I am possessed...
...like a man who has the strength of many.
Very strong! Never felt so strong!
You don't even want to speak to me.
Oh, no. I want to kill you.
But without me, you are alone. And then you die.
- Oh, maybe. - Yes, you die. In the dessert.
It's desert. Not dessert.
Dessert's something that you eat after dinner. It's sweet.
That's dessert. But desert is "desert. "
- No. Desert. Desert. Desert. - Dessert.
- Desert. - Yes. That's it.
- Desert. - Desert.
Why am I taking English classes?
What was that?
Thank you for teaching me better English.
Now you cut it. Go on.
- I'm starving. - Me too.
Bacon. Egg. Sausage.
What do you call this?
Too much to eat.
I wanna go have a shower.
Oh, I'm sorry.
Can I come in and get the rest of my clothes?
- Today, we go here. - Where?
- Mundabullangana. - Show me.
- It's written in Japanese. - Yes. Japanese map.
Mundabu... How do you say?
- Mundabullangana. - Mundabullanganda.
- No, "gana. " - Mundabullangana.
Gana. Mulla... No. Mundabullangana. Bloody hell.
I'm gonna have to phone home.
Off with the map now. No more map.
"Historic town. First port of the northwest. "
I should like very much to see.
In the war, we thought you blokes were coming after us.
We had stuff stashed away up in the hills.
People tying knives to the ends of broomsticks.
Now you blokes own the place.
There was a time there when nobody would buy anything made in Japan.
The wife would shop, turn the thing over. If it said "made in Japan"...
...she'd put it back on the shelf, wouldn't buy it.
Still don't, I guess.
Only country to have a trading surplus with you lot.
Funny thing, life, isn't it?
That'll be $90, thanks.
I have a wife, Ikiko
and two children
a boy, Ryuchi and a girl, Lika
Do you love your wife?
No need to say it.
When you say it...
...then, not so true.
You give up.
It's bad for you.
Very old rock.
...I came to Australia...
...I was sad.
...I must get through it.
Here in the dessert...
You have shown me...
Now I'll teach you a new Australian colloquialism.
Are you ready? Last one in is a rotten egg!
No, no, no, no, no, no!
Oh, God! Oh, no!
Oh, my God.
Oh, no! Oh, Hiromitsu!
Oh, God. I'm so sorry.
No, no, no, no, no.
Oh, my God!
Oh, my God.
- Have you got a hospital here? - Yep, but it's shut.
Been shut for about three years now.
The government reckoned they'd run out of money.
What about an undertaker?
Are you feeling that crook?
Well, there's Jimmy Smithers down the road.
He's got a cool room out in the back, if you want to use it.
- This way? - Just down the road, past the pub.
- How far? - Only about 200 meters.
Is your name Jimmy Smithers?
What would you do...?
What's the right thing to do...
...if you've got someone who's dead?
I mean, is there a correct procedure, or...?
Well, it depends.
He's not dead till the doc certifies him, technically.
Is there a doctor here, or...?
No, no. We fly him in.
We just, you know, whack them in the cool room until he gets here.
I mean, do you...?
Where's he from?
Well, he was, anyway.
Still is, I suppose.
He's well-dressed for this sort of country.
Sandy, this is James. He's a lawyer. There will be an inquest.
And Tony, for the certificate. The death certificate.
- He's a doctor. - Good day.
It's quicker than the flying service. I couldn't get them moving.
We gotta get this sorted out before the family gets here.
The consulate's shut, so we won't be doing anything tonight to it...
To him. I've rung Japan. His wife's on the way.
So, what happened?
Are you all right?
Is everything all right, you know, with you?
Christ, those things are scary.
Can't see a bloody thing, and the noise, it's...
Sorry, mate. I'm Bill Baird.
I'm the other director of the company that was showing him around.
This is Tom Goodwin. He's come over from...
- Where was it? - About an hour out the highway.
- The wife got me on the CB. - Thank you.
Okay, Sandy, where is he?
They've got some ice packs on the plane...
...the helicopter, whatever, to keep him from going off.
- Tony, would you like to see him now? - Wouldn't be a bad idea.
I'd like to go over a couple of things with you, Sandy.
- Did you get a statement? - Yeah.
Good idea. I'll go with you.
- Good day, mate. Jimmy Smithers. - Good day. Bill Baird.
Sorry about the phone message.
Was it awful?
Can't you eat?
No. I'll eat it.
Think of his wife and family. Imagine what she's going through.
Maybe I should send her a card.
Have you got an address I can send it to?
- What? - Do you have an address?
The poor woman's probably beside herself.
You can't do that.
You can't send a condolence card to a complete stranger.
You don't know her. You don't know her culture.
You know nothing about her or her marriage!
I know she was married to him. I know she's probably sad.
I don't have to be Japanese to know that.
- Heaven's sake! - I've been a wife and a widow.
- Some things are the same all over. - Oh, that's bullshit, Mum!
You don't have to be here.
No one expects you to work.
What are you doing?
I'm just getting some of this stuff in order.
I'm trying to get this stuff we've had to do in order.
The things for Hiromitsu.
There's been quite a few odd kind of details to attend to.
A hundred and forty-three dollars from a dry cleaner.
"Express courier, $ 79.15." Who's this Mr. Anderson?
Why does he want to know "the precise location of the incident"?
Incident? Is that what they're calling it?
The cleaners were for his clothes. We couldn't send them back like that.
They were covered in red dust.
Filthy and crumpled. Apparently, his wife and family would've had a fit.
- The Japanese... - The Japanese what?
And we had to send all his personal belongings to his wife's hotel.
- That's some of the couriers... - Already?
- I thought it was coming here. - It did. It was.
We had to do something with it. We couldn't just let it sit around.
- So we thought it best... - Who thought?
Baird, I suppose.
- It had to be done. We didn't know... - Why didn't anyone tell me?
I was there too, you know.
I was there when it happened. It happened to me too.
Sandy, I'm sorry. I am so sorry. I thought you'd like it off your hands.
Didn't anyone think I might like to have a say, you know?
"The incident," they're calling it. The incident!
I mean, even the photos, at least get them back.
I can hardly go and demand the photos back.
- Why not? - It's rolls of undeveloped film.
She might not get them developed.
Surely, she's entitled to a few photographs...
...of the last days of her husband's life. Christ!
What the hell were you doing out there anyway?
Whatever happened out there...
I don't know, that's not something that anyone wants to have to go through.
A lot of people...
You did a good job.
You handled it.
You did everything that you had to do.
It must've been...
Why don't you take a break, eh.
Take a few days off. We can handle things here.
And we'll get other deals. No problem there.
You did well. You did really well. You did a great job.
No one doubts that around here, honestly.
Just one moment, please.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
Right. So white's for Chinese?
No, no, no, it's okay. It's my mistake.
So for Japanese, you have...?
Look, I tell you what. Can I give you a call back?
Oh, all right. Yeah. Fine. No, I've got that number.
Excellent. Okay. Thank you very much. Bye-bye.
I'd like to be involved.
I think it would help.
Sandy, I'll call you over.
That is Sandy Edwards.
She was the one who was with your husband, showing him around...
...when he passed away.
Sandy, come on over.
Mrs. Tachibana, Sandy Edwards.
Sandy Edwards, Mrs. Yukiko Tachibana.
Can I get you a drink?
No, thank you.
Mrs. Tachibana would like to have the coffin sealed now. Thank you.
Everything will be taken care of. I hope it's to your satisfaction.
What? What is it?
"Hiromitsu loves Sandy. "
I just need a signature here from you, mate.
- Going to Tokyo, right? - No, Kyoto.
Oh, yeah. Right. Sorry.
Can I just...?
I should've not let it happen. It was my fault.
My responsibility. I'm so sorry.
Christ. What did you say that for?
Is that your photographs?
I'm glad that's over and done with.
Let's get out of here, eh?
You go back. I'll get a taxi.
You're kidding me. What for?
I don't know.
To say goodbye.
- I'll see you back at the office, then? - I'll see you at the office.
Are you sure you...?
By the time you read this letter...
...I will be on the plane going home to my wife and children.
I am sorry you have to read my funny writing.
I hope you are well and happy.
Now I can be good husband, good father, good man.
...I stand in the desert.
The sky is so big...
There is so much space...
...and my heart is open.
