A group of underappreciated teens in the Arctic find solace in sports, bringing hope and healing to a marginalized community in this rousing, heartfelt feature. There’s a fervent, fiery emotional drive propelling this true-life tale of a teacher who inspired his underdog students to take up their lacrosse sticks, overcome unrelenting sorrow and thus unite an unsung community.
Miranda de Pencier, an experienced producer, directing her first feature, is a Canadian with a deep appreciation for the landscapes and a sincere respect for its original residents. She shows us that bleakness is the result of pain and loss of a sense of identity.
