‘Before the coffee is cold’, a melancholy comedy about old age.

There is an encounter between three young carers and Agnes, in a mixture of madness, humour and poetry.

We meet Agnes at the old home where a young nurse has her first day at work. Suddenly the young face to face with the old, who cannot walk without support and needs help with the most intimate of tasks. A description of any day at a nursing home, but where the everyday for us is extraordinary.

‘Before the coffee gets cold’ tells a warm, humorous story, about addiction, loneliness and our lifecycle.
