PerKup Elkhorn by Isaac Gomez
Directed by Vanessa Stalling
It's just another day at PerKup Elkhorn, the hottest local coffee shop in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, where happiness is sold per the cupful. Lori and Vicki gab about the latest town gossip, Jeff and Eric argue about the latest sports news, and the new cold brew is selling like hot cakes. But when newcomer, Pedro, stops by the shop to borrow WiFi for work, a collision of differences leaves irreparable damage. PerKup Elkhorn is an experiment on assessing how far we will go to protect the ones we love.
Starring: Donovan Diaz, Jodi Kinglsey, Erika Napoletano, Dan Granata, and Nathan Eric Slate.
