Green Smoothie of the Day

Dir. Lucy Leake
The story tells the brief encounter in a coffee shop between two friends who haven’t seen each other in a long time: Maria, an extrovert girl who has just  come from an Erasmus trip, and Carlos, a self focused boy who works in the coffee shop. While Carlos is trying to unlock a client that is stuck in the bathroom, they talk and share their experiences, lost in their own world.

Reservation for Two

Dir. Harrison Trigg
A fastidious young woman gets stood up on Valentine's Day at the nicest restaurant in town, and in order to keep her reservation, she invites the only single person around, the homeless man from out on the street.
