The Australian thriller Line of Fire will be released via VOD and digital sellthrough Feb. 7 from VMI Releasing.
In the film, when policewoman Samantha Romans (award-winner Nadine Garner, “Savage River,” “The Doctor Blake Mysteries”) fails to intervene in a shooting where her own son dies, she draws the condemnation of her colleagues and community as well as the attention of ambitious journalist Jamie Connard (Samantha Tolj). Keen to reignite the career she put on hold to have children, Jamie ignores Romans’ pleas to be left alone and pursues her relentlessly. With nothing to lose, Romans retaliates by forcing Jamie into a night of terror that threatens everything Jamie holds dear.
