But his angel friend, Kuba, seems to have other ideas...When the class go on a history trip to a remote part of Wales, Elmo, thanks to Kuba's promptings, finds himself embroiled in a war against bully Eddie Kilgour and his sidekick Mark. It looks as though Elmo himself could be history, unless Kuba can come up with some heavenly intervention!
