Being a plus-size girl is never easy, and when your Mother (Jennifer Aniston) happens to be a former beauty queen and a local celebrity, your life can be really harsh sometimes.
Dumplin is a charming, chubby teenage girl who didn't inherit her slender Mother's genes. Her real name is Willowdean, only her Mom calls her Dumplin. Their characters are very mismatched, but deep inside they really love each other. In a desperate moment Willowdean decides to sign up for her Mom's Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant, a local competition organized every year for young girls. Dumplin's impulsive act becomes a protest that escalates when other contestants follow in her footsteps, revolutionizing the small town's idea of beauty. The protagonist has to learn how to became a confident young woman herself. The competition has its emotional ups and downs, and finally Willowdean gets an insight into her Mother's world, and starts to understand her better. Dumplin is a film with loveable characters, an optimistic message and the greatest hits of Dolly Parton.
