What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren. Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
