During the international games, Paralympics, new borders are drawn. The host becomes an aggressor. It is understood that sport and politics are kept separated.
Territories and humans are separated.
For some, one will be a traitor, for others, one will be a hero.
Some will win medals, others will lose their identities.
Some will become “defenders” and others will become disabled.
Pushing Boundaries depicts Ukrainian Paralympic Athletes who grow above their physical and personal boundaries, while around them geopolitical boundaries are pushed back and forth.
