Synopsis

A young British Asian woman struggles to come to terms with the deteriorating health of her strict Hindu father.

Director: Adam Patel & Maaya Modha are British Asian. And while they didn't meet until 2015, they both grew up with a question in their minds: why is nobody in film & television like me? Why do brown people only feature in stories about forced marriages, honour killings and terrorism?
Filmed in Northwood, near Watford, Tea & Coffee is the first of a trilogy of films featuring Asian people doing normal things; playing parts that could be played by anybody.
