But as soon as Mike has the passport, he seems reluctant to leave - and even more reluctant to pay. Instead, he wants Brian to courier heroin for him to London. Brian needs the financial reward offered, but his flight would go via Singapore where the death penalty awaits those who are caught. Sarah urges him not to accept. Brian goes for a walk to think over his decision. During his absence, the true nature of the game is revealed, and the ending is sad and profound, its implications set to reverberate long after Brian`s fate becomes known.
