Single Session Bible Study

Overview

When Napoleon Dynamite, an imaginative and slightly bizarre teen who's not afraid to be himself, befriends shy Deb and mustachioed Pedro, the trio attend the school dance, launch a campaign to elect Pedro as class president, and survive the bizarre friends, family, and town around them.
