Rotten Tomatoes


Based on the true story of a teacher who arrives in remote Kugluktuk, Nunavut, determined to get a year in to pay off his student loan and hopefully to inspire the students to learn. A disturbingly high suicide rate causes him to quickly realize that the kids need more than books, so he introduces them to the game of lacrosse. Gritty realism and exceptional acting from local casting.
