Kina is a story about a poor girl taking on a powerful business magnate hell-bent on exploiting the pure mineral spring water that has been found on the land where her community stays.

It is a story of the poor taking on the rich, a story of the haves and have-nots. But at its heart, it is the tragic story of a mother and a daughter. A mother who abandoned her daughter and lost her heart in the process…and a daughter with a heart big enough to heal the world

Here is a look at all the unforgettable Kina characters that have been colouring our screens recently.
