Five individuals have sought asylum in the UK – from Africa to Iraq, Latin America to Iran. Linking them all is asylum lawyer, Harriet, whose dedication to her job begins to play havoc with her marriage.
When her relationships begin to blur the personal and professional we are confronted with the question: ‘Where must we set our boundaries?’
