On the Line is an eco-adventure documentary like no other. Follow Frank Wolf and Todd McGowan on a 2,400 km journey by foot, bike, raft and kayak as they seek to uncover the truth about a proposed 5.5 billion dollar Canadian oil pipeline.

The Northern Gateway Pipeline Project is a proposal by Calgary's Enbridge Corporation to construct a 1170 km oil pipeline from Bruderheim, Alberta to Kitimat, BC. The pipeline would cross 773 watercourses and bring supertankers to BC's pristine north coast for the first time ever in order to deliver tar sands bitumen to Asian markets.

In the summer of 2010, filmmaker Frank Wolf and his friend Todd McGowan biked, hiked, rafted and kayaked the GPS track of the pipeline in order to uncover the truth about the proposal. Through the voices of people they meet along the way, their rough and tumble journey reveals the severe risks and consequences associated with the 5.5 billion dollar mega-project.
