When a Bangladeshi man moves across the world to be with his partner in the UK, he discovers the unforeseen costs of following his heart. A Border Between Us explores the experience of being in an interracial relationship and trying to settle in a culture very different from one’s own; between visa rules and cultural norms, is it possible to find one place to call home that works for two?
