THE RED LINE follows the lives of three vastly different Chicago families whose stories of loss and tragedy intersect in the wake of the mistaken shooting of an African American doctor by a white cop. Daniel Calder is a high school teacher mourning the death of his husband while also trying to comfort their adopted daughter, Jira. Facing the loss of one of her fathers, Jira searches for her birth mother against Daniel’s wishes. Meanwhile, political wunderkind Tia Young contemplates risking her career to comfort the daughter she gave up for adoption when she was 15. Police officer Paul Evans is sickened and confused by his mistake, but he gets support from his loyal police partner, Victoria “Vic” Renna, and his volatile, racially intolerant brother, Jim Evans. As the stories of the Calder, Young and Evans families converge, a message of hope appears – it’s possible to emerge from tragedy stronger and to unite with others.
