Summary
The Grizzlies is based on the inspiring true story of a group of Inuit students in a small Arctic town that had one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world, due to a history of residential schools and intergenerational trauma. The classmates are initially resistant when the naive and culturally ignorant white teacher from the south introduces them to lacrosse--but gradually, as they begin to connect with each other as teammates, the students find inspiration to make profound shifts in their lives. Together, as The Grizzlies, the players learn to lead each other, gain the support of a deeply divided town, and look to compete in the National Lacrosse Championships. The Grizzlies is more than an inspiring sports drama. Unlike many sports/coach/inspiring teacher films, The Grizzlies is not just a story about a teacher who affected his student's lives--it is a true story about a group of Inuit students who changed their teacher, and eventually their whole community, for the better
