Breaking the Bee follows four, second-generation Indian-American children, ages 7 to 14, over the course of a year, or “bee season”, as they train to reach the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee. It is an inside look at studying, family life, competing in qualifying bees and being a kid with big dreams. Some are in their final year of eligibility while others are just beginning their spelling careers. With expert commentary from Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Fareed Zakaria, comedian Hari Kondabolu, ESPN’s Kevin Negandhi and past Scripps winners, the film offers an analysis into what drives this trend, while exploring the ups and downs of chasing a dream and pondering just how long this incredible trend can last. After years of tireless devotion, who will be standing on stage as the confetti rains down?
