Roxie Hart is a wannabe showstopper desperate for fame, fortune, and the kind of adoration heaped upon the vampish Velma Kelly, who was one of Chicago's top acts until she found her husband and sister in bed together and shot them both dead. Following Velma's lead a bit too closely, Roxie guns down her own lover after discovering that he's been stringing her along with false promises of kick-starting her career. Roxie is left sharing jail space with Velma as they await trial, and her only chance of avoiding the death penalty is to hijack Velma's lawyer, Billy Flynn, who performs to his juries with all the skill of the showgirls he's made his reputation defending. Soon the case becomes a media circus of epic proportions as the whole of Chicago dances to Roxie's tune.
