‘Crossing the Line’ is the tragic yet uplifting story of athletics prodigy Danny Harris, and his battle with his demons on and off the track. Orphaned at 14, Olympic medallist at 18, crack cocaine addict at 22, world number-one at 25, and finished at 30, Harris’s life spiraled towards addiction, homelessness and eventually jail. This ultimately redemptive documentary explores the fine line between greatness and addiction.
