1962 Baltimore, Maryland. Plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance program. When Tracy wins a role on the show and becomes a celebrity overnight, she uses her notoriety as a platform for racial integration of the show. “You Can’t Stop the Beat” when big hair and Rock ‘N Roll charge the call for social justice.
