Forty-year-old Guy Trilby (Jason Bateman, starring in his feature directorial debut) discovers a loophole in the National Spelling Bee rules that allows him to compete against the pre-teen participants, and he strikes up an unlikely friendship with a 10-year-old misfit named Chaitanya (Rohan Chand) as he becomes the subject of a news story by probing reporter Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn).
