A tormented young woman faces her self-imposed judgment day with wit and irreverence as she fights in favor of her own conviction.
Guilt-ridden over the death of her identical twin sister Billie, Frankie Stern finds herself on trial for three counts of murder in the surreal, dark comedy "Over the Line." Making this film even more surreal is that the prosecutor seeking the death penalty is her own father, and that Frankie herself seems intent on aiding the prosecution. Frankie reluctantly finds herself being defended by Matt, the lover she'd recently dumped because as she puts it, "I couldn't handle your baggage, too." And both characters do indeed have baggage they have to confront in the form of ghosts and assorted other witnesses. Frankie comes face to face with the harsh reality that is her seemingly perfect family, and she does so with a mixture of anger, wit and irreverence. The eccentric cast of characters effortlessly defines Frankie's uniquely skewed outlook on everything ...from the legal system, to money, to religion...and most importantly, to family life and relationships. The twists and turns come rapidly and run the gamut from heartfelt, to shocking, to hilarious.
