(Clerk on the border is checking Kara's temperature)
Kara: Please... we just wanna be free...
(He looks at the news screen and sees there is peaceful android march in Detroit)
Clerk: Welcome to Canada.
Kara: Don't do this, Todd. They'll kill us if you hand us in. When your wife walked out... she took your daughter away... You couldn't live without her... so you bought yourself an android... a substitute litle girl... You thought you could love her... that she would make you forget... but nothing could replace your child.
Todd: I just wanted to prove to myself that I was a good father... She was wrong... But I fucked it all up all over again. She was right in the end... I didn't deserve them... I miss my little girl... You don't know how much I miss my little girl.
Police officer: Is there a problem, sir?
Todd: No. I made a mistake. Sorry. (officer leaves, Todd speaks to Kara): Good luck.
(Alice huggs Todd)
Markus: You said you're with a little girl, right? You know that humans hate us... Why are you protecting her?
Kara: She needs me. And I need her. It's as simple as that...
Rose: So, are you gonna tell me what a deviant's doing in the snow with a little girl?
Kara: Her father was beating her. When I saw what was happening... Something snapped inside of me. All of a sudden, I felt like her life was more important than mine. I had to protect her... So we ran away.
Alice: Why do humans hate us? We didn't do anything wrong...
Kara: Maybe it's a misunderstanding... Maybe they just need time to understand what we really are...
Alice: Why can't we just talk to each other? They'd see we're not bad...
Kara: I don't know. I really don't know...
(Alice get to ride a carousel)
Kara: It's the first time I've seen her smile.
Luther: She hasn't had much to smile about lately.
(Kara's made-up story for Alice)
Kara: This is a story about a little girl... Who was tired of being afraid. She dreamed of being like all the other little girls but... She was different. And that made her very sad. Then, she met a robot, who was just as lost as the little girl. So they decided to run away together. To find a place where they could be safe. They encountered great dangers along the way, but they stuck together, so they overcame all of them. Along the way, they met another robot who left his master to become their guardian.
Alice: How does the story end?
Kara: They reach the place they dream of and live happily ever after.
Alice: Stories always have happy endings. But real life isn't like that.
(Alice is lookin on a picture of a family)
Alice: Do you think we'll be like them some day?
Kara: Once we cross the border, we can start over. You can go to school. Maybe I'll find a job. We'll be like them. Like everyone else.
Alice: As long as we're together, that's all that matters.
Luther (to Kara): I didn't want to hurt you... He programmed me to obey him... When I saw the little one risk her life to save you, it was like opening my eyes for the first time... Finally, I could see... I know you have no reason to trust me after what I did... but I know someone who could help you across the border. I could take you there. I could protect you... You and the little one...
Kara: All right. I trust you.
