An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship
of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from
their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of
(potentially made-up) words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing,
life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake.
Director: Carol Bohley
