Sports, like most aspects of life are not easy in the Canadian Arctic. In Nunavut, the suicide rate is almost 10 times the national average. But a major youth tournament recently revealed soccer's importance to the territory.

This film was funded by our newly launched Creator Commissions initiative. Each month, there is a grant of up to £1000 accessible to any COPA90 fan and filmmaker to tell a story they feel the football community should know about. To find out more about our Creator Commissions, please visit:
