This 65 minute documentary chronicles the tenacity of an historic Texas ranching community as it struggles to survive economic pressures, dwindling population, and water shortages. When a multi-year drought leads to wildfire of epic proportions, it is the deep love of their land that drives neighbors to put themselves at mortal risk to try to save each other and their town.
I learned a lot from this film about rural life. The videography was amazing, the editing and production was first class. Thank you for this wonderful, wonderful film.
If you have an opportunity to see this documentary, please do. It will renew your faith in the indomitable spirit of mankind!

Congratulations on a truly amazing film! We laughed, we cried, it was wonderful and we so appreciate all of the many, many hours of work Marianne and Doug Leviton put into it. It was extremely well done and a very real depiction of the people and the situation.
I am so hopeful the film reaches every nook and cranny of the world as it has such a great story to tell – about ranch life, about humanity, about so much. Thank you and fantastic job!!!

"A Line in the Sand,” is a truly fascinating film. It is impressive how well the film allows viewers to connect with the locals, such that one is truly on the edge of their seat when the town is fighting for all that they have during the climax of the film. The viewer is left to ruminate as to the future of the town, its population, and their cattle livelihood. This film is very thought-provoking. I highly recommend the film.

Well done here! At the conclusion, I emotionally thirsted for more, wanting to ask – “Wait. Don’t stop now. What happens next to these people?”

Since watching “A Line in the Sand”, our family has had several discussions of how the documentary has touched them. For a movie to positively impact such a diverse group is an incredible feat and almost impossible to achieve. Watching it, I was taken from laughter to tears and back again. I was impressed by the professional quality and production of this documentary. The story it tells needs to be seen and heard so that people outside the ranching community can understand the impact of choices they make in the use of resources - that will eventually impact everyone.
