A tribe of cats called the Jellicles must decide yearly which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new Jellicle life.
Each year, a group of cats that calls itself the Jellicles meet up at the much-anticipated Jellicle Ball. Here, they decide which of them will be lucky enough to ascend to the heavenly Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life, decided by the wise Old Deuteronomy (Judi Dench).
As Grizabella (Jennifer Hudson), Bombalurina (Taylor Swift), Jennyanydots (Rebel Wilson), Macavity (Idris Elba), Gus the Theatre Cat (Ian McKellen) and the rest of the tribe gather together at the annual event, each introduces themselves in dramatic and musical fashion, sharing interesting tales of their lives and showing off their unique abilities and special traits.
Every one of them dreams about being chosen to be reborn in the Heaviside Layer, but only one can be picked by Old Deuteronomy.
