Everyone has a first crush. But not everyone has thousands of Bible verses memorized, ready to be recited at a moment's notice.
In Tacoma, Washington, and all over the country, many church groups participate in an annual competition of memorizing and reciting Bible verses and trivia, all in hopes of making it to a national competition, where the best of the best duel it out.
With an approaching National Bible Quiz Championship on the horizon, 17-year-old Mikayla and the other members of her Bible Quiz group study and practice with unbeatable dedication (though for Mikayla it is more than just Bible trivia). Her quiz group is an escape from her family troubles and a chance at belonging, but also a place where she has fallen in love with her team captain, JP. This documentary is about dedication and hard work, faith and aspirations, and the trials of growing up through the eyes of a young girl finding her way.
