Synopsis (with spoilers)
78 have tried. 78 have failed. Chronicles Simpkins (Maleah Renee Gallien) is the undisputed Queen of Tetherball at Woodlake Avenue Elementary. But as with all great champions there will come a day when Chronicles meets her match. Today is that day. With recess dwindling to a close and her pals Rachel (Alexa Hodzic) and Jessica (Gianna Gomez) unable to secure an opponent, Chronicles agrees to play intimidating 6th grader Billy Conn (Brice Fisher). It's a match that all involved will remember for the rest of their lives. Chronicles' disputed (read: illegal) victory sends a tattling Billy Conn to the nurse's office. Moments later, whistle-toting Mr. Finkle (Justin Kirk) confronts Chronicles. The writing is on the wall. Even Jessica's impassioned plea falls on deaf ears. Chronicles is going to be expelled. But like Ali against Foreman in the jungle of Zaire, Chronicles is the greatest and the smartest. Faster than you can say 'Cut Your Ass', the girls turn the tables on Finkle and all is right in the world. The streak stands at 79...and counting.
