Life on the Line (Movie 2016)

When wemovie cover for Life on the Line think of the word “hero”, we think super powers. Perhaps some of us may think about a police officer or firefighter but rarely do we think of a person who works for an electric company.  Do you enjoy the privilege of electricity after a severe thunderstorm or hate it when you go half an hour without it? For me it’s both, but never once have I thought that there are people risking their lives making sure I am able to flip a switch and scare off all the monsters hiding in the dark. I invite you to sit back and learn about the Line Men and how they are the real heroes of today.
