When Ren and his mother 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. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter, Ariel, sets her sights on Ren, he finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Moore. With help from Ariel and his new best friend, Willard, Ren challenges the law and helps heal a hurting community. Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
