Putnam Valley Middle School is hosting their 25th annual spelling bee competition, and there's a quirky cast of characters on either side of the microphone, as 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 never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one leaves a winner!
