Description:
  Sommeliers say that coffee has three flavors: bitter, sour and scented. Through the common element of such an evocative product, the film tells three stories set in three parts of the world very far from each other yet close.

In Belgium, Hamed is the owner of a small pawnshop. He has come from Iraq looking for a better future for him, his wife and his small son. During a violent street riot, his shop is looted and a precious coffee pot he very much cared for is stolen. Hamed finds out who the robber and, regardless of his peaceful nature decides to make personal justice. But he unexpectedly turns to be a victim to the point of risking his own life…

In Italy, Renzo is a passionate coffee sommelier but works underpaid in a local snack bar in a country more and more in recession. When his girlfriend Gaia realizes she is pregnant, he ends up getting involved in a robbery in a coffee factory. But things don’t go the way they were supposed to…

On the other side of the planet, in China, Fei is a successful young manager. He is getting married with the daughter of his boss, the owner of a big chemical company. Everything seems to be perfect in his life. Until he is asked to take care of a breakdown in a factory in Yunnan, the lush region where he is coming from and center of the production of coffee in China. A misterious young artist will force him to come to terms to his life…

The three destinies intertwine until a final resolution expressing the fragility and the challenges of our world among racial clashes, economic uncertainty, ecological emergency.
