A young Austrian filmmaker brings her traditional cafÃ© table to New York and offers a cup of coffee and a conversation to people who are in need of a break from Americaâ€™s biggest city. Given this odd opportunity from a complete stranger, the results are unexpected, and both parties find themselves enjoying much more than a brew of authenticity. As it turns out, ordinary people have extraordinary tales to tell when the space and safety is provided. In the short time it takes to drink a cup of coffee, strangers display brave acts of vulnerability in speaking of their past, present and future. All you have to do is listen.
