Relationships are not easily translated. Lovers, family and friends are synonymous with emotions, conflict and drama. Do people all over the world love in the same way? Is it possible that when you cross borders, both geographically and emotionally, you discover values that are drastically different from your own? Are there lessons to be learned in reaching out, not knowing what’s on the other side?

These are some of the questions asked in Films from the North: Between Us, a new short film program from the Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF).
