Coffee House Chronicles: The Movie is a comedy that explores the many ways LGBT people connect in the world of the Internet, social media, and of course coffee houses. The movie, based on the successful web series from writer-director Stewart Wade, features nine vignettes and covers two days and one night of love, hookups, heartbreaks, and hopes in gay Los Angeles.
In Secret Asian Man, a meet-cute takes an unexpected turn when Darin (Mykee Steen) gets to the house of Matthew (Cesar Cipriano) and discovers that the hottie in the wrap-around shades is Asian – and Darin doesn’t “do” Asians. In An Exception, Jeff (Darryl Stephens) is haunted – literally – by his perfect ex (Chris Salvatore). Can his quirky and less-than-perfect BFF, Anthony (Drew Droege), get him to leave behind the idealized past in exchange for a messy, imperfect future together?
We, Zombies follows two actors (Mark Cirillo and Damian Pelliccione) who are playing zombies in the series “How To Survive the Zombie Apocalypse.” Sparks fly. But how are the “rules” of meeting different, when you can’t see the other person under the makeup? In Perfect Present, Jamison (David Pevsner) decides to spice up his relationship with Richard (Richard Bojorquez) by bringing home the perfect present for their 25th anniversary: gay porn star Kip (John Suazo)! But not everything is as it appears.
In Double Dog Dare, two friends, gay guy Lance (Cameron Ferguson) and straight guy Peter (Tommy Dickie) challenge each other to venture beyond each other’s sexual comfort levels… but how far will they really go? In Jail Bait, Dan (Nicholas Downs) goes on a blind coffee date with Owen (Hunter Doohan), who turns out to be much younger than he stated in his online profile. This one also featuring the incomparable Amy Hill as a scornful observer. Sunday Secrets concerns a couple (Najarra Townsend and Eric B. Anthony) who meet up with another couple (Brandi Nicole Feemster and Eric Colton) for coffee, prompting hidden relationships to come to light.
Finally, we have Trans-itions, about a trans man, Leo (Ian Harvie), who goes on his first date as a man with Rachel (Trace Lysette), as each of them strives to be honest about what they want; and Seeking Same, about a single man (Luis Selgas) who is pushed by his two straight roommates (Alex Genther and Dalila Ali Rajah) to go out on a date with a man from an Internet hookup site (Max Emerson). Both men, though, end up having completely different ideas of a “first date.”
