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 lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life-unaffirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake.  Six spellers enter; one speller leaves!  At least the losers get a juice box!
