Ricki Lake and Divine star in John Water's bubble-gum comedic musical masterpiece. When Tracy auditions for a spot on a popular teen dance show, she beats out the spiteful Amber von Tussle, winning over Amber's boyfriend in the process. After meeting some black students at her school, Tracy begins to push for more racial integration on the dance show. This gets her into trouble on many sides, especially with Amber's pushy parents, played by Sonny Bono and Deborah Harry.
