In a small Arctic town struggling with the highest suicide rate in North America, a group of Inuit students are initially resistant when a naïve & culturally ignorant teacher introduces them to lacrosse. Gradually, they begin to connect with each other as teammates and the students find inspiration to make profound shifts in their lives. In what initially seems like mild after-school fun, the players learn to lead each other and look to compete in the National Lacrosse Championships, and in the process transform their struggling community into a model of hope and youth-led resilience.
Starring Booboo Stewart, Will Sasso, Ben Schnetzer
