The filmmakers, Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine of the Perennial Plate (a two-time James Beard Award-winning documentary series), came to Sri Lanka with every intention of filming a video about an organic, fair trade tea farmer. That is exactly what they were planning when they set foot on the small tea farm of Piyasena and his wife Ariyawatha. What started as a farm story quickly turned into a story about love and dedication amongst the Ceylon tea fields.
