Borderlands brings together six characters from the Indian subcontinent whose lives are defined by personal and political boundaries. Through conversations and observations, the characters reveal their efforts to find meaning in a world beyond their control. The film explores themes of migration, cross-border kinship, livelihood, conflict and the fluidity of identity—via the axes of gender, class, ability, nationality and sexuality. In a world where “Us vs them” often precludes any understanding of “Us and them”, Borderlands asks how we can begin to focus on our similarities as opposed to our differences.
