Description

Amelie has nightmares. She's a talented and well-liked player on her basketball team in Ottawa, but as a tournament game against her old school approaches she seems more and more frightened.

Her teammates wonder why she left her last school in the middle of the year, and why she's reluctant to meet her old friends again. Amelie finds she must confront the past, for her own good and for that of the team.

Courage on the Line shows how sport can provide the courage to face violence, on the court and off.
