The movie is about Frances Houseman, known as Baby, who is vacationing with her family at a resort in the Catskills at Kellermans Holiday Camp. One day, helping Bob carry watermelons, she discovers where the hotel’s employees play and dance. There she meets Johnny Castle, the hotel dance instructor and dancer, and ends up falling in love with him. When Penny, Johnny’s dance partner, gets pregnant while getting involved with one of the waiters, Robbie asks Lisa, Baby’s sister, for her sister to dance instead. But Frances’s father, Jake, does not approve, considering Johnny as irresponsible. And this for allegedly having impregnated Penny, stolen wallets and also asked to have an abortion.
