''Superstar'' is about a girl named Mary Katherine Gallagher, who dreams of being kissed, and decides the only way this can happen is to become a star. She daydreams all the time, so she is moved to the special education class at St. Monica High School, the Catholic school she attends.

A Catholic magazine is hosting a talent show -- the Let's Fight Venereal Disease Talent Contest -- at her school, and first prize is a role in a movie with good morals. Mary Katherine sees that her big chance is the talent show, and strives toward that. However, her grandmother will not let her enter the contest. Mary Catherine's competition is head cheerleader Evian, who is dancing with the jock Sky, the object of Mary Katherine's affections.
