Nicole Teeny's debut feature explores coming of age in the face of faith, doubt, fierce competition, sexuality and love. Mikayla Irle is just like any other normal 17-year-old girl with a crush; except unlike other girls, Mikayla has memorized more than several books of the Bible - more than 2,000 verses - and the object of her affection is her studious Bible Quiz team captain, JP. But this year JP only has eyes for the National Bible Quiz Championship. Last year he placed third and now he is determined to win. In order to succeed, though, he and Mikayla must compete against thousands of other teens from across the U.S. Mikayla hopes that if she can help lead her team to victory she will find the love she lacks in her own family and win the ultimate prize: JP's heart.
