Toe the Line
Canada / 22:50 / 2021 / sound / colour / English, Cantonese
TOE THE LINE follows Gloria Chau, a closeted teenage hockey player. When she's not on the ice, she's got a guitar in her hands and a snapback on her head. Her mother Nancy, a stylish Hong Kong woman, spends sleepless nights worrying about Gloria's failing grades. Gloria is torn between two worlds: the fun but cutthroat world of hockey where she gets to be loud and proud in her queerness, and the one at home where she's a recluse, using music to cope with being forced into becoming someone she's not. Underlying these tensions is a deep racial divide.
She learns to use the power of her ancestors to seek new purpose and redefine success for herself.
