The Line

Half-hour single-cam Drama Anthology Serie, TG4


The Line is set in an Alternative Present in which the Ireland’s youth have run wild. In response, the government has imposed nightly curfews, issues fines for irresponsible parents, and subjects prospective parents to interviews to determine their suitability for raising a child.

We follow the story of rebel teen Joe, his caring but unappreciated girlfriend, Mary, and their struggle against this intrusive government regime.
