‘Keni’ is a conversation with grief and the many travails it leaves in its wake. A couple is dealing with the loss of their young son, both in their own ways, now having found themselves far, far away from each other. The detached silence of the man, while communicating how consumed he is by his thoughts, serves as the landscape against which his wife’s anger finds verbal articulation.

At the center of it all is also the former’s sympathy towards the dying insects and rodents around him. The narrative ties this emotion well with his quietness to take itself home in a notable manner, leaving the viewer with a shocking turn of events.
