Plot – Adventures and opportunities in Windy City stimulate Roxie Hart, an apparently naive artist who dreams to escape the monotony of her life thanks to her talent in singing and dancing.

With the help of Matron Morton, the security guard, Roxie meets the legendary lawyer Billy Flynn, who takes care of her case for a ridiculous fee.
