Zelza Zero "Worthless" Synopsis
Zelza Zero is a sweet, helpful and humble little zero with a heart of gold. She lives in Numeric City and is a student at Digits Elementary but is always sad because she does not have many friends. The other digits will not play with Zelza Zero and she struggles with being the only zero in the entire school. Her classmates are extremely mean; they play practical jokes on her and whisper terrible things about her to each other. One day, one of Zelza Zero’s classmates calls her “worthless,” which leaves her confused because she does not understand what this word means. But with courage and the help of her parents, Mother and Father Zero, and her teacher Mrs. Elva Eight, Zelza Zero journeys to figure out what “worthless” means and the value of her true worth.
