Tea with Honey directed by Krish Shrikumar
Tea with Honey is a short romantic comedy telling a story of Tom who is determined to meet Ania once again and make it something more than just a one night stand. He turns up at her door with a box filled with something to make her fall in love with him. When the door opens, Tom quickly realises that he is not greeted by the girl of his dreams but Kuba, a colossal ill tempered Eastern European who speaks very little English. This film is the moments that follow where Tom and Kuba converse over a cup of ‘Tea with Honey’ and they soon realise that they can never be friends because a girl will always come between them.
