As the saying goes, money can separate close friends – what more, strangers?
A Bangladeshi migrant worker finds himself mired in debt after his brother, also a migrant worker, committed suicide. He is left shouldering the debt that his brother left behind.
A kind stranger steps in to help, but his trust is tested each time as the migrant worker asks for yet another loan. Is he being taken for a ride? Or will their friendship find its footing despite their contrasting backgrounds, and transcend national, racial and religious lines?
We’re happy to say that this true story has garnered over 230,000 views online. Why has this resonated with so many people? Probably because we all intrinsically recognise the importance of honour in friendship.
As Shakespeare wrote: “Mine honour is my life; both grow in one; Take honour from me, and my life is done.”
