Have the time of your life.
In 1963, Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey), a sweet daddy’s girl, goes with her family to a resort in upstate New York’s Catskill Mountains. Baby has grown up in privileged surroundings and all expect her to go on to college, join the Peace Corp and save the world before marrying a doctor, just like her father. Unexpectedly, Baby becomes infatuated with the camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), a man whose background is vastly different from her own.
