Based on a true story “The Grizzlies” is about the determination and resilience of a group of Inuit youth in a small Arctic community. First-time teacher Russ Sheppard moves north for a job at a local school in Kugluktuk, a town struggling with one of the highest suicide rates in North America. He is shocked and overwhelmed by the numerous social issues facing the youth and introduces a lacrosse program in the school. Although the program is at first met with skepticism and resistance, Russ’ commitment begins to win the trust of the students, and together they form the Grizzlies lacrosse team. Through the sport, the youth find a vital outlet for their emotions, and the team creates a sense of pride and purpose in themselves and their community.
