Here is a short review of "The Greatest Showman" movie plot summary.
As a child, P. T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman) and his tailor father, Philo, work for the Hallett family. Barnum loves the Hallett's daughter Charity (Michelle Williams). When she attends finishing school, they write to each other, eventually marrying and raising two daughters, Caroline and Helen, in New York City. They live a humble life; though Charity is happy, Barnum craves more.
Barnum loses his shipping clerk job when the company goes bankrupt. He later secures a bank loan, deceptively using his former employer's lost ships as "collateral". He opens Barnum's American Museum in downtown Manhattan which features various wax figures. Ticket sales are slow, so his children suggest showcasing something "alive". Barnum adds "freak" performers, such as bearded lady Lettie Lutz (Keala Settle). This garners higher attendance, but also protests and poor reviews from well-known critic James Gordon Bennett (Paul Sparks).
Barnum renames his venture, "Barnum's Circus" and recruits playwright Phillip Carlyle (Zac Efron) to help generate publicity. Phillip is mesmerized by the African American trapeze artist, Anne Wheeler (Zendaya), but he hides his feelings. While touring abroad, Phillip arranges for Barnum and his troupe to meet Queen Victoria (Gayle Rankin). Barnum persuades famed Swedish singer Jenny Lind (Rebecca Ferguson) to tour America, with him as her manager. Lind's American debut is a success. During her song, Phillip's parents see him and Anne holding hands. As Barnum gains favor with aristocratic patrons, he distances himself from his troupe, advising them to work without him. Dejected, they decide to stand against local harassers.
