When Ren (Noah Miller) and his mother (Sarah Rose-Fish) move from Chicago to a rural town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher (Richard Pratt). When the reverend's rebellious daughter, Ariel (Stephanie Koffroth), sets her sights on Ren, he finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Moore.

Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
