Chicken Girls Plot: What is it about?
The story of the series revolves around Rhyme and her friends. The whole team is best known by the name Chicken Girls. Rhyme takes the central stage as the group tries to make a name for themselves. They have been practising and performing together for a long time but the whole dynamic of the show changes as they enter high school. They start to feel the pressure of high school in terms of “boy drama” and “mean girls”. The girls are adamant to win everyone’s hearts. So, they enrol themselves in a dance competition organized by Attaway High.
The show then takes the audience through a rollercoaster of emotions as the girls try to keep the group together with numerous obstacles laid in front of them. Finally, they reach the finals of the competition where they will have to beat Power Surge in order to win the contest.
In season 5, a major plot twist occurs as the situation goes south when the story shifts from its regular glamour to an intense dramatic situation. The Chicken Girls start working on an economic assignment which causes a rift between the members of the group. Rhyme becomes the face of Attaway’s feminist movements much to her dismay.
Amidst all this drama one member quits the group. The toxic culture created by the boy starts annoying all the members of the group. Romantic confusions start building around the girls and during Ronney’s birthday party a whole bunch of break-ups and patch-ups take place.
