The Grizzles is the inspiring true story of first-year teacher Russ Sheppard, who takes a temporary assignment to teach at a high school in Kugluktuk, a small arctic town with the highest suicide rate in North America.
Having no success at getting his Inuit students to show up for class – and seeing that many of the teens roam around town drinking and smoking – he believes that teaching them the sport of lacrosse will get them in school and motivate them to achieve. But really it’s Sheppard who has a lot to learn, as they end up transforming their own lives as well as his.
The Grizzles gets a digital release on July 7 and we have 5 x digital passes to giveaway to the film.
