“Present Tense”

A young unemployed woman applies to a fortune-telling café lying that she has experience.  While she reads the coffee cups of different women, she also tries to find a way out herself. 
Divorced, disconnected from her family, about to be thrown out of her flat, she is surrounded with troubles. Her mind is made up: she will escape to America. But how? She needs money, papers and a visa.

Through the shapes emerging in coffee cups, she expresses her own frustrations and desires to match those of the customers.  Meanwhile, the other young fortuneteller and the rebellious boss at the cafe try to bring her out of her shell. Will she be able to get away from present tense and try her luck for the future?
