Coffee at Dawn

Filmed guerrilla style during the pandemic to keep our creative energy alive, Coffee at Dawn, tells the story of two people grieving the loss of their respective partners and the friendships that come from an unexpected encounter.

A bond is formed over a morning coffee ritual and their journey brings realization that there are angels among us and in our darkest times, they will light the way when we need it most. Sometimes these angels join us for Coffee at Dawn.
