'Kindred' tells the tale of a twenty-six year old black woman named Dana who is busy unpacking boxes in her new home with her husband, Kevin. Overcome with dizziness she finds that she is unwillingly transported from 1976 California to plantation-era Maryland. Travelling back in time she finds herself in the outdoors and saves a young boy from drowning. The next few weeks of her life prove to be tough.

She soon discovers that the reason why she is there is because the boy she saved, Rufus Weylin, is the son of the plantation owner and a white ancestor of hers and on each journey back, she ends .
