In the early 2000s, the remote Arctic town of Kugluktuk was making headlines, but for a tragic reason: the tiny Inuit community had one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world. Growing up with the dark legacy of abuse, poverty and addiction, and with few prospects, the teens’ desperation was chronic — until a teacher introduced them to the sport of lacrosse. Not only did the sport transform them: it transformed their entire community. Before long, the teen suicide rate had fallen to zero. Based on a true story.
