Once upon a time, a specific time,
July 5th, 1825 to be exact, 52 men and women sailed out of Norway
in an undersized sloop they named Restauration.
These immigrants sought religious freedom from persecution,
so they fled to America.
Not just an improbable crossing, an impossible one.
How in the world did they make it?
They had help, that's how.
Tell me your journey, each of you.
Tell me your life's voyage, and I will tell you who you are.
This fairy tale begins in a library in Queens.
I am in distress!
This is dire!
I am in need of a toilet!
Listen to my voice. Can you hear me?
我有耳朵 对吧 你看
I got ears, don't I? Look.
你看 我也有耳朵 何必大声嚷嚷
Well, you see I have ears too, so why are you yelling?
I need a piece of ID before I give you the bathroom key.
I don't have ID.
Leave your bags here with me.
These contain state secrets!
Thank you, ma'am.
Hi. - Do you need something?
I was gonna help you with him.
Seems like you got that all figured out. - Imagine that.
As in Creed?
Actually, yeah, kinda.
Do you wanna go, like-- Do you wanna go to dinner with me?
Please. - No.
If Emma Valentine thought Apollo Kagwa would give up this easily,
she was mistaken.
But to understand why and how in the world, we must first go back.
It was during the great garbage strike of 1968
that Brian West met Lillian Kagwa.
How are ya?
I'm here to see a Mr. Pavel Arsenyev.
Mr. Arsenyev, there's a...
It's Brian West. Brian West.
Brian West here to see you.
Fuck, fuck, fuck.
He'll be right out.
I'm his parole officer.
我不应该告诉你的 所以你要保密 知道吗
I'm not supposed to tell you that though, so you gotta keep that between us, right?
Kwagwa, that's an interesting name. - Kagwa.
I don't date white men.
Hey, Kragwa. Kragwa.
这里还要再进一步监察 所以我会回来的 知道吗
a lot more monitoring needs to be done around here, so I'll be back, all right?
I'll see you later.
Hey. That man is bad for business,
由于他被你迷得团团转 你也会影响生意 所以...
and since he's so smitten with you, that makes you bad for business, so...
不是的 阿谢尼夫先生 我需要这份工作
No, Mr. Arsenyev, I need this job.
我不想听 滚 去收拾东西
I don't want to hear it. Go. Get your stuff.
Hey, look who it is.
模特儿经纪公♥司♥兼洗钱团伙 帕维尔 很蠢 很不光彩
Modeling agency/money laundering racket. Not smart, Pavel. Not pretty.
Not pretty at all. Back to jail for you.
你害我被开除了 新工资是先前的一半 新公♥寓♥只有一个房♥间
You got me fired. New job pays half. New apartment only has one room.
I liked it at the modeling agency.
Just give me a chance.
And he couldn't stay away.
And that there is how Brian met Lillian,
but didn't go on a real date until years later.
You know, there's this place right around the corner.
It's really good. They have great--
That's nice, but no.
Some may call that stalking.
Apollo called it persistence.
Personally, I enjoy the simple things like a stroll through the park
or something at the be-- - No.
嗨 你要不要一起去... -不要
Hey. Do you maybe just wanna go to-- - No.
Boones Mill? - Yeah.
没错 没听说过吧 人口只有285人
Yeah, you haven't heard of it. Population, 285.
It's just where my parents landed, I guess.
Well, I bet your parents have a lot of cool stories
about Boones fucking Mill. - I've never spoken to them.
No, I mean, I'm sure I have actually spoken to them.
I just don't remember the conversation because they died when I was five.
对不... -不用...是啊 没什么的
I'm s-- - Don't-- Yeah. It's not a thing.
So, how'd they die?
Well, what happened?
To them? - To you.
Well, my sister Kim adopted me. She's 13 years older.
And Ms. Rook, the local librarian. She would look after me when Kim couldn't.
And she would let me and my best friend, Michelle, watch all the movies.
One day, I was 12, and I picked up this movie at random--
Well, random, it was the only movie in the entire library
that had Black people on the cover.
Quilombo. - Okay.
It's about the uprisings in Brazil, and it's just like
a ton of Portuguese people just getting, like...
brutally killed by slaves.
That's fucking awesome.
Yeah, actually, it was watching that movie that made me--
What? - Oh, my God.
Do you know that I just realized right this second
that movies are called movies because they move.
I haven't thought about that one. It's true.
Wow. - Well, they do move.
Anyhoo. Quilombo made me realize how big the world was.
比布恩斯磨坊破镇还要大 我想去看世界 走遍全世界
Bigger than Boones fucking Mill. And I wanted to see it. All of it.
What about your peeps?
One sad story's enough for the first date.
Wow. One of your eyes is bigger than the other.
God. - What?
That's not a bad thing. That's a beautiful thing.
I think it's gorgeous, frankly.
You're the most gorgeous person I've ever seen.
Ever known. I mean, your soul is--
My soul? - Yeah.
