Six spellers enter, one speller wins! Losers get a juice box. A colorful group of mid-pubescents competes for the title of supreme spelling bee champ. Between rounds, they share bits of their home life through stories alternatingly hilarious, embarrassing, and heartfelt. The only thing that can crush their enthusiasm is the dreaded “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake.
