Good morning.

Hi. Thanks for letting me

- sleep here.
- Of course.

No, I didn't wake you up this morning.

I figured maybe you needed the rest.

Here's a coffee. And I got some bread.

Anything on Pol?

So I went to the Meicho.
I spoke to the guy who covers Yoshino

and all the little towns in that area.

And they have not seen or heard
of any gaijin, any foreigners.

So I think we should file
a missing persons report.

Mm. Yeah. Yeah. That's a great idea.

That is a f*cking brilliant plan.

You know, the Japanese
police department,

they love to waste
their whole f*cking day

looking for a gaijin girl
who skipped out on her debts.

Is there any way that Polina
just went home?

No. She didn't go home.

Why? Are you sure?

I'm f*cking sure.

Don't ask stupid f*cking questions.

- Okay.
- Sorry.

I'm sorry.

- No, it's okay.
- You want to smoke?

Listen, Pol's my best friend,

but she's so openhearted.

She's very trusting.
She trusts people way too much.

She's so agreeable.

One night I was at Onyx, and
I was feeling really shitty,

and she came over to me
and ended up taking me

to her favorite place in Tokyo and...

- The shrine?
- Yeah.

See? That's what I'm talking about.

Where did you hear about Yoshino?

The tip about Yoshino?

The host club that she owes money to.

Okay. So we go back there.
We see what else we can get out of them.

No, no. Sato got it out of them.

And it turns out that the club's in deep

with Sato's boss's,
like, mortal f*cking enemy.

- Tozawa?
- Yeah. And Sato got spooked.

So he'll never go back there.

Wait. Okay. So this is great.

If Yoshino has anything to do
with Tozawa's operations,

I know a guy who knows

more about Tozawa's operations
than anybody.

Okay. That's great. Let's talk to them.

Okay, the only thing is,

if we're gonna get this guy
to talk to us,

we're gonna have to go to him
with an offering.

Okay. Like what?

You have any idea where
we can score some crystal meth?

a friend, another hostess
who went missing.

She racked up this debt at a host club,

and she may have been forced to go

on a secret Tozawa sex cruise.

That's her, this one.

What's the girl's name?

Her name is Polina. And...

How long has Polina been missing?

Since Friday morning.

Her roommate was the last one
to see her.
