Inspired by a true story, “Transatlantic Coffee” is a tale of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl …only the boy is a 41 year old clown, the girl, a teenage stripper from London. Alex is battling bleak circumstances within his version of a hostile world. However, his outlook evolves with the emergence of the young, sharp and adventurous, Mandie. The oddball duo embrace each other for who they are, until Alex’s secret trauma bubbles to the surface, leaving for a climax that should not be missed.
Written and directed by Erik Peter Carlson, Transatlantic Coffee is a story of lust, love, loss, yearning, and ultimately confusion amidst a city in the shadows of tragedy.
