A “border” is defined by “the line or frontier area separating political divisions or geographic regions; a boundary.”
One people become two countries. In between a mountain, emerge two religions. A river apart, they speak two languages. And sometimes just a stone’s throw away, a war is fought between two sides.
Is the border a great divider or is it just an arbitrary line? A line drawn, and lives are at once shattered or thrown into disarray, and who are the people and power controlling the division?
Living at border towns, differences are magnified as the border town people search for some common ground. Some prospered on their differences, some gambled on their chances, and some make difficult choices, just so, to get on the other side.
Through the eyes and investigative journalistic instincts of our series presenter, Borders tells the intriguing stories of people in a town caught between two worlds, their fates and life unravelling, as he/she traverses the imaginary line we call - border.
