KIN is a Bristol-set short film telling the story of the relationship between two brothers and their vastly different experiences of the care home in which they both grew up.

Jamie, 20, the older of two brothers, is midway through an attempt to extract younger brother Harry, 13, from the care home he himself was put through as a teenager. However, when Jamie's application for custody is rejected, his initial anger is gradually replaced with a difficult realisation.
