Inspired by true events, Across the Line tells the story of Mattie Slaughter (Stephan James), a Black teenaged hockey phenom, who is poised to take the next step on the road to the NHL. As the star of his local team, he’s had to overcome bias and stigma both on his team and in his high school that has a decades-long history of racial hostility.
