Genre: 
The desire to overcome is at the core of everyone. Especially those fighting disease, facing a natural disaster, coping with a disability or battling mental illness. “Life on the Line” is an inspiring look into the resilience of humankind.. At hospitals around the nation, people face life and death situations every day. “Life on the Line” zeroes in on one renowned academic hospital in Southern California.

This is where the real story lives and their strength of spirit shines. Their hope. Their courage. Their determination. Their lives are inspiring..
