We visited Sri Lanka (watch this video for a taste of our journey) with every intention of filming a story about an organic, fair-trade tea farmer. That's exactly what we were planning when setting foot upon the small tea farm of Piyasena and his wife Ariyawatha. What we didn't expect was to be so taken with the relationship between the two of them.
What started as a farm story turned into a love story; or rather, it was there all along.
