When nightclub sensation Velma Kelly shoots her philandering husband, she lands on Chicago's famed murderess row. With the help of Chicago's slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn, she becomes the center of the town's most notorious murder case. Meanwhile, wannabe diva Roxie Hart knocks off her abusive boy friend and also ends up in prison. Recognizing another made-for-tabloids story, Billy postpones Velma's court date to take on Roxie's case. He turns her crime of passion into celebrity headlines, and she becomes a bona fide star -- much to Velma's chagrin. Tensions climax as the two women stop at nothing to outdo each other in their obsessive pursuit of fame and celebrity.
