Enter Jennifer Aniston. Looking like a queen, complete with an exquisite tiara. She needs help getting out of the car though. The girls help her out. We find out that the story is about Jennifer’s daughter whom she calls Dumplin’. So, that is where the title comes from.
Turns out the young lady’s name is Willowdean Dixon aka Will. She is a plus-sized girl with beautiful gold locks who is very attached to her best friend. Will is the complete opposite of her mother. Jennifer Aniston is Rosie Dixon who is a local celebrity who is very particular about her looks. She might even be a former beauty pageant winner of the town. She is a Southern belle which comes out heavily in her accent.
Moreover, she makes her daughter drive her around. However, Rosie does not seem ashamed of her daughter. That all turns around when Will decides to sign up for the pageant. She initiates a movement in which other “misfits” sign up for the beauty pageant. We see their journey shaping up from there. That also includes going to a drag show and making costume statements.
