Chasing peace and self-acceptance, reclusive Betty is forced to confront her troubled past on the 26th anniversary of a fatal car accident. Every Line is an intimate portrait of hope and renewal in the face of complex trauma. Trapped in her head and fearing going out the front gate, Betty’s days are spent alone with the wallabies and chickens she now calls friends. Wanting more from life, she defiantly embarks on a supported arts practice, purging her suffering onto the page one line at a time. When multiple works are celebrated in an exhibition, she must go out into the world and risk it all. Every Line explores the healing power of community, the profound wisdom forged through survival and the true meaning of resilience.
