For some avid fans, cricket is not so much a sport, but a way of life. In 'Beyond Boundaries' we explore this intense passion evident in the cricket scene of Doha. As a melting pot for many expats from Southeast Asia, Qatar is a unique place where all walks of life gather and play the sport together. The film introduces us to many of these people and showcases the power of cricket to transcend national borders.
