The Grizzlies is based on the inspiring true story of the youth of Kugluktuk, Nunavut (Canada) - who were transformed by the power of sport, family, tradition, and community, and in turn, transformed their town with the highest suicide rate in all of North America into a model of hope and youth-led resilience.
