When the student’s teacher announces that the school will be holding a talent show, the students are all very excited, with the exception of Deon. Deon is certain that he has no talent to be showcased but participates through the help of his teacher. During the talent show, a series of accidents and mishaps occur to Deon and the other performers that could potentially destroy the talent show. (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt StoryTown, 2008)
