The Line documents the stories of people across the country, from the suburbs of Chicago to the economically devastated Gulf Coast, living at or below the poverty line. Emmy Award-winning producer Linda Midgett chronicles poverty in America straight from the source, and illuminates how the Great Recession and years of stagnate wages have put working people in an increasingly precarious financial position. As one film subject explains, “The line. The place the people on the bottom are trying to get to, and the place the people on the top are trying to keep from going below.”
