Before Breakfast is a movie about a man disturbed by the circumstances he put himself into. Alfred Rowland is a poet, unemployed, married to a young woman that struggles to sustain both of them in a very difficult time. Confined to his room, Alfred wakes up one day extremely tormented. While his wife prepares breakfast and urges him to change their life situation, he tries to maintain his sanity by fighting his self-judgments and destructive impulses.
