When a policewoman, Samantha Romans, (Nadine Garner, Savage River, The Doctor Blake Mysteries) fails to intervene in a shooting where her own son dies, she draws the condemnation of her colleagues and community as well as the attention of ambitious journalist, Jamie Connard (Samantha Tolj). Keen to reignite the career she put on hold to have children, Jamie ignores Romans’ pleas to be left alone and pursues her relentlessly. LINE OF FIRE is one part tragic ripped-from-the-headlines shooting, part 21st century online bullying, lives may be destroyed. LINE OF FIRE is a taut, riveting thriller from Down Under. And with nothing to lose, Romans retaliates by forcing Jamie into a night of terror that threatens everything Jamie holds dear. Nominated for Best Indie Feature at the 2022 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards, LINE OF FIRE is sure to have audiences questioning their allegiances in a film they’ll not soon forget. Director Scott Major stops by to talk about the inspiration for his hard-hitting tale of revenge, the AACTA nomination, his collaboration with a fine cast of actors that includes award winning Nadine Garner, Samantha Doji, Damien Walshe-Howling and his screenwriter Christopher Gist.
