The movie is Tau.
That is what the English subtitle says. Maybe an "a" missing from the subtitles? "trying to pick up A trade"? surrounding dialogue:
- What's wrong with her?
- Maybe the thing fried her brain.
- Do you know what it's for? This thing.
- I don't know. One night I'm out trying to pick up trade and next thing I know I wake up in this place. What about you?
(the person who said this has been kidnapped)
Please native English speakers, help me understand this expression. Thank you
