Beyond Borders is a strong poetical mosaic narration representing 3 people of different ethnic origin who have a physical or mental disability: Amin, a boy with Down Syndrome from Iraq, Elena from Uzbekistan, who has Multiple Sclerosis, and Moroccan Mohamed, a blind man who runs marathons. Three unique lives, one universal story. Beyond Borders takes you beyond the dividing lines between people. It breaks through the walls of indifference and insensibility. This film simply leaves no one untouched.
