Across The Line is a documentary that looks at the Canadian Wheelchair Rugby team as they try to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games in Vancouver, BC.

The sport is a gruelling combination of strength and speed as the athletes battle it out. This tournament is a make or break ordeal with teams from France, Sweden, Brazil, Germany, Colombia, Switzerland & Thailand all in attendance alongside Canada to try and claim their spot at the next Paralympic Games – only the top two teams will qualify. The pressure is on as the Canadian team has never missed a Paralympic Games to date and don’t want to make this their first. With everything on the line they’ll come together and battle it out over six days for the chance to represent their country in Tokyo.
