Cutting the Line follows a husband and wife team, Naude and Katja Dreyer, as they embark on a mission to rescue entangled seals along their home along the Namibian coastline and raise urgent awareness about ocean plastic pollution. What begins as a few spur-of-the-moment rescues quickly evolves into an environmental organization that finds itself pitted against this mounting global crisis. Cutting the Line powerfully reveals the disconnect between the global fishing industry practices and local communities actively working to mitigate its detrimental impact. The film serves as an inspirational clarion call to advocate for global policies to support communities actively fighting to end the harm caused by plastic pollution.
