Over a Small Cup of Coffee
Canada / 25:00 / 2000 / sound / colour
The poetic story of a young man's struggle to pursue his life's calling. Damiano is a young Italian American who, in the 1950s, works in his father's cafe and longs to fulfill his dream of becoming an accomplished actor. By eavesdropping on the various amusing conversations of a diverse spectrum of characters who frequent the cafe, Damiano gains a unique insight on life - he learns that most people in society give up on their dreams by choosing to settle for what is easiest. His experiences in the cafe, along with the ongoing resistance Damiano faces from his father, eventually propel him to "break out of the box" of mediocrity to follow his life-long dream. After all, "a lot transpires over a small cup of coffee."
