After discovering an aptitude for words, she trains for the National Spelling Bee with a tough and inspiring teacher, Dr. Larabee, whose mantra, "our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure," manifests in this feel-good movie about believing in yourself, overcoming personal demons, and taking the high road.
