An all-season pass to the UCLA Bruins softball team as they defend a hard-earned and historic National title.
 
The audience gets an all-access pass into the real life drama of these young, proud competitors as they discover the meaning of teamwork, pride and leadership.  One-on-one interviews, adrenaline-packed game footage, interviews with the UCLA/U.S. Olympians and intimate portraits of the players and coaches deliver a cocktail of inspiration and suspense.
 
It is our hope that by thrusting this women's sport into the spotlight, young girls may learn from this team's commitment and success and find a role model, something we see far too few of today.  Women who grew up prior to Title IX will be amazed and those born afterward will see and feel what is possible.

The message in this documentary is powerful and must be seen.

DIRECTOR STATEMENT
 
I have been an athlete most of my life, since the age of six to be exact when I swam on my town's swim team.  Sports have been a part of my life ever since and an avenue for my success.  A few days into the filming of "BETWEEN THE WHITE LINES" the team was signing autographs after a game for about 75 girls, aged 7-14.  I was amazed.  This was like the players were rock stars.  It was at this moment I realized how important this story was and that, I would do whatever it took to get it told.  It was for these girls and millions more like them that I made this film.
