“The Line” (2008) is a 47-second public service announcement (PSA) that explores the question “where is the line between love and control?” Opening with a teenage boy on the phone with his girlfriend, the natural conversation goes sour when there is evidence of control and potential abuse. The PSA was created for The National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline as the culmination of Coralee Trigger’s Girl Scout Gold Award project.
