It's the first day of school at the clique-y, clichéd Rydell High School in 1959. The coolest kids in school are without a doubt the Greasers (aka the Burger Palace Boys), a rough guy-gang who can only be shown up by the sassy, sarcastic Pink Ladies, who are the most untouchable girls at Rydell. Through a remarkable twist of fate, the leader of the Greasers, Danny, finds himself face-to-face with his sweet summer love, Sandy, after she transfers to Rydell. Sandy is shocked to find that Danny is far from the gentle boy she met on the beach, while Danny struggles to choose between his image and the girl he loves. With both encouragement and determent coming from their respective cliques, Sandy and Danny eventually make their way back to each other, but not without some some major bumps, minor feuds, really un-ironic dance numbers, and of course, those Magic Changes.
