A tragic but uplifting family and community story from Iowa is making the big screen in an upcoming movie slated to film in Vancouver starting in July.

Live Like Line stars Helen Hunt as the coach of the Iowa City’s West High girls volleyball team which lost their star player Caroline “Line” Found after a moped accident in 2011.

The team captain’s family was compounded with further tragedy as Found’s mother died soon after from battling pancreatic cancer.

The volleyball team went forth with a run at the State Championship – and won.

The tale has been an inspiration to many and hopes to amplify that as a feature film.

A team and community movement of ‘live like line’ also spawned a HBO special, paperback books and Live Like Line group on Facebook which recognizes “acts of kindness and amazing accomplishments”.

The film will be directed by Sean McNamara who also directed Hunt in the 2011 biographical drama Soul Surfer.
