Coffee & Allah is a film about Abeba Mohammed’s appetite for coffee, Islam and a good game of badminton. As a recent refugee in New Zealand with no English and a veil to cloak her difference, she has little chance of connecting with others around her. Until one day when a spontaneous game of badminton leads Abeba to accept a gift of friendship.
