The Ca'd'oro Café is a dark comedy about love, money and desperation.

Melanie is a waitress in a cafe. It is closing time when Billy walks in with a bleeding forehead. This is the moment she has dreamt of - being alone with Billy. Only it isn't...

She can't lose this job and she has got to shut up shop for the night. But Billy has got his own reasons for staying. He has just lost the job that has kept him afloat and now he wants to go back to the only other place he felt settled - jail. Once he has pulled Melanie into his world and filled her with even more love for him, he'll start smashing windows.
