The experiences of those living on the margins of the American dream. Back in his home country of Pakistan, Ahmad was a famous rock star. Now a widower separated from his son and adrift in New York, he works long hours selling coffee and bagels from a midtown Manhattan food cart, engaged in a Sisyphean search for human connection and a sense of purpose that seems perpetually just out of reach.

a realistically bleak film of a realistically bleak immigrant's life operating a corner coffee stand in NYC. bleak but not despairing. inspired by Camus' Myth of Sisyphus. Ahmad faces the same daily challenge over and over while working and hoping to be able to make a life with his estranged son.

Too much is left unresolved.

A bittersweet story. Not a lot of action, but you feel sympathy for the main character as he struggles to make a living in New York City. His hard and lonely existence is probably an accurate reflection of many immigrants in America; those who perform the service jobs that few of us would ever want to have.
