Maddie’s not your typical fifth-grader. With an electric skateboard, a stuntman dad, and a head full of crazy ideas, she often finds herself on the wrong side of Principal Richardson—particularly when that tattletale Raquel is always trying to get her into trouble.
After Maddie founds a playground society celebrating the noble art of falling onto heaped cardboard boxes, Principle Richardson challenges Maddie to please, please find a constructive outlet for her creativity. He knows just the thing: The Young Filmmaker of the Year Award.
