Meet the students of Kingdom Kids' Academy - kids of different races, nationalities, cultures and personalities: Nessie, the "class clown" and natural leader of the group; Elena, Nessie's best friend who has become distant and depressed; Miguel, Elena's twin brother who is physically disabled and determined to keep Elena's secret; James, Sudanese math genius, and many others. Mr. D, their teacher, has come up with a unique idea to teach them to respect and celebrate their differences and to remind them that each one is an original masterpiece created by the hand of God the Father.
