King Xerxes, the ruler of Persia, is holding a beauty pageant to find a new queen, and Esther is among the many girls who are invited to compete. Mordecai encourages Esther to enter the contest, and she reluctantly agrees. Esther wins the contest and becomes queen of Persia. Meanwhile, a wicked advisor named Haman convinces King Xerxes to pass a law that will allow him to destroy all the Jewish people in Persia. Mordecai urges Esther to use her position as queen to save her people, but she is hesitant to risk her life by going to the king without being summoned. Eventually, Esther musters up the courage to approach King Xerxes and reveal Haman's evil plan. In a dramatic showdown, Esther exposes Haman's true intentions and saves her people from destruction. Throughout the show, the characters are depicted as vegetables, including Esther (who is a cucumber), Mordecai (who is a green onion), and Haman (who is a grape).

Pamela Thomas and Phil Vischer provide a fun and lively energy as the two sidekicks, Pa Grape and Archibald Asparagus, who pop up throughout the show to offer humorous commentary and sing catchy tunes.
