Storyline

"Breaking the Bee" explores the near two decade trend of Indian American students dominating the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Since 1999, 19 out of the 23 winners have been of South-Asian descent, including the last 11 in a row. Over the course of a year leading up to the 2017 Scripps Bee, "Breaking the Bee" follows four Indian-American children of different ages to learn about their family life, witness them train, explore the ups and downs of chasing a dream, and offer a candid look at what it really takes to become the best. These students are not against each other. They are against the dictionary. Come the national finals, who will be the winner standing on stage as confetti rains down, and how long will this trend last? Written by Sam Rega, Chris Weller
