“We came to Sri Lanka with every intention of filming a video about an organic, fair trade tea farmer. That is exactly what we were planning when we set foot on the small tea farm of Piyasena and his wife Ariyawatha. What we didnt expect was to be so taken with the relationship between the two of them. What started as a farm story quickly turned into a story about love and dedication amongst the Ceylon tea fields.”

Seth Dixon‘s insight:

The beginning of their love story is rooted in cultural traditions that many would find oppressive (arranged marriage), and yet their much about their sweet relationship that is near-universally admired.
