Two boys grow up and go their separate ways. Charlie, an introspective, hard-working young man stays back in the shadows, cultivating his family farm and trying to find his own way while Ellis goes off to school, finds and loses love, and becomes a journalist who goes off to see the world. Ellis encounters tragedy when he gets too close to political tensions on one of his journeys to the Philippines, while Charlie continues to pursue his dreams quietly at home. Both men endure pain and loss, and finally end up together, back at home in Southside Virginia. A story of love, loss, and complexity, KINAIYA is a tale of lifes realities, and the strength, or frailty of character that it can manifest.
