With the help of her father’s ex-partner, Karl Aker (Samuel L. Jackson, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers,Django Unchained), and a mysterious friend from her past (Callan McAuliffe, The Great Gatsby,I Am Number Four), she becomes a merciless assassin, blasting her way through the dark world of human trafficking only to uncover a devastating truth.
Kite was written for the screen by Brian Cox who also produced with Anant Singh (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) along with executive producers Moises Cosio and Alberto Muffelmann of Detalle Films.
