Willowdean ('Dumplin'), the plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen, signs up for her mom's Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionizing the pageant and their small Texas town.
The film is based on the 2015 young adult novel of the same name by Julie Murphy. There is a second book in the series called "Puddin'," and it follows the supporting characters of "Dumplin'."
Callie is doing the pageant this year. Will's mom is the pageant director. She was Miss Teen Bluebonnet in 1991.
