Superstar is about a girl named Mary Katherine Gallagher and her dreams of becoming a superstar. Working as a video-rewind girl at her local video store, she often fantasizes about what it would be like to be one of the girls in the movies. She thinks if she becomes famous then maybe people will like her, since at the catholic school she attends, no one does. She is quite unique, to put it nicely.

Mary Katherine Gallagher, as she always refers to herself, has a major crush on one of the most popular boys at her school. Throughout the movie, Mary does everything she can to win his attention, including entering the school's talent show. Things never go quite as she plans, however. She often embarrasses herself in front of him, which is the opposite of what she was going for. After one embarrassing thing happens that leaves Mary crying and covered in blue paint, she runs out of school and into the mysterious kid in class that everyone is afraid of. After he talks to her, she realizes that he's not as bad as everyone thinks.

After realizing that there are more people out there like her, Mary Katherine Gallagher decides to change direction for the talent show. She brings in all of the people in her special class, who have become her friends, to join her in the competition as her backup dancers. What starts out as a shy performance by Mary alone turns into a huge production that stuns the audience. Now Mary Katherine Gallagher has a decision to make: date the popular guy she wanted before who is suddenly interested or the mysterious guy who is more in her league.
