The Grizzlies -- Film Description:
"Based on an inspiring true story, The Grizzlies is a powerful film about the determination and resilience of a group of Inuit youth. When Russ Sheppard (Schnetzer) moves north to teach in a town struggling with a high suicide rate, he is shocked by the challenges facing the town's youth—a result of the legacy of colonization. Russ introduces a lacrosse program in the school through which the youth find a vital outlet for their emotions, and a sense of pride and purpose in themselves and their community."
