Based on the beloved film, Akeelah and the Bee tells the story of an 11-year-old girl from the Chicago projects whose razor-sharp mind keeps her one step ahead of the game in the neighborhood... but is it enough to get her to the top? Akeelah must turn to family, friends and mentors if she’s going to survive the final round of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
