On the third and final leg of their journey, journalists Adnan Sarwar and Babita Sharma travel along the northern part of the border which divides India and Pakistan. It is the most contested section of the border - and the most dangerous. Adnan begins by meeting a 22-year-old woman, Rabia, challenging tradition by training as a fighter pilot in Pakistan's Air Force. It plays a key role in defending the country's borders and Rabia is proud to have been chosen to perhaps one day fight on the front line. Babita's journey takes her into the state of Jammu and Kashmir, a region which is still being fought over by India and Pakistan, who both claimed it at Partition. She gets as close to the border as she has been on her whole trip, hearing stories of Indians who have been affected by cross-border attacks.
