With the help of Mama Morton, the prison’s corrupt jail warden and Billy Flynn, an unscrupulous lawyer who uses the tabloids to free his clients, the two women lock into competition to become the darling of the tabloids. As tensions mount, everyone tries to stay one step ahead of everyone else. In this cutthroat world there are no limits to how far Roxie and Velma will go, but Roxie has on final card up her sleeves that will change everything…
