Your Coffee, Please observes the extended daydream of an overworked and underpaid barista. Coffee runs down the arm to the disposable coffee cup. It reminds the blood from the vein. The smile appears and disappears on the young girl’s face. She must smile despite her state of mind. Her inner demons start to go outside. She acts like strange animal or formless creature. The silent scream comes from her mouth. The girl’s arms turn into the wings, the body transforms itself. She has only one wish to destroy, to ruin everything around her and to run away as far as possible. Suddenly the girl awakes behind the bar in the coffee shop at her usual work place. Young barista understands she run too deep inside herself. She cheers herself up and goes on doing what doesn’t require special efforts: to make coffee and smile to people.
