End of the Line is the incredible story of a small group of indigenous women who risk their lives to stop the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline construction that desecrated their ancient burial and prayer sites and threatens their land, water, and very existence. When the population of their peaceful protest camp exceeds 10,000, the women unwittingly find themselves the leaders of a global movement.

Featuring exclusive footage including never-before-seen evidence of police brutality surrendered to the filmmakers by a disgraced law enforcement officer, End of the Line is both an exploration of the rise of indigenous and feminine power in the areas of social and environmental justice, and a searing and deeply personal story of four brave women. Together, they must face the personal costs of leadership, even as their own lives and identities are left transformed by one of the great political and cultural events of the early 21st century.

“...a moving, poignant portrait of courage, determination, and tenacity in the face of overwhelming odds...” - Film Threat

“End of the Line presents a strong case for a righteous cause, and makes its points all the more effectively because it's an absolutely beautiful film.” - TheArtsStl

“A solemn tribute to the women - the protectors and guardians - that breathed life into the Standing Rock movement.” - Horror Buzz
