It’s 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland, and quirky, plus-sized, teenage Tracy Turnblad has one dream: to dance on The Corny Collins Show. When she gets put in detention with the African-American students in the school, they teach her some of their dance moves, and her new-found groove wins her a spot on Corny’s show. After becoming a celebrity overnight, Tracy uses her star status to help lift up those who got her there by campaigning for the show’s integration. Hairspray shows us the black and white fact that when we look out for each other, “you can’t stop the beat!”
