Description: A woman finds herself torn between two cultures and two loyalties in this drama. Anna (Miranda Otto) is a conservationist working to protect wildlife in Namibia alongside her brother Marius (Chris Chameleon), who is a Lutheran minister working with the natives. While Anna and Marius have a close relationship, Anna finds herself becoming friendly with Stone (Isaiah Washington), an African-America lawyer who has come to Namibia in search of his cultural identity. When Anna discovers a group of game poachers have illegally bagged an elephant, Anna sets out to find them, and Stone joins her. However, Anna discovers the animal was killed by her assistant, Naniserri (Moses Kandjoze), who is then murdered in an altercation with other conservationists. The death drives a wedge between Anna and the local community, and she turns to Stone for comfort, angering her brother, who no longer wishes to have anything to do with her. Writer and director Elaine Proctor shot and edited Kin over a period of six years.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
