14-year-old Billy Batson (Asher Angel) is an orphan boy and lives with a foster family. But one day, when he encounters a centuries-old magician (Djimon Hounsou), he gives him a mysterious power. From now on, Billy, when he calls the word SHAZAM, can turn into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi). Suddenly he is not only in the body of a well-trained giant, but has almost godlike super powers. Exuberant and slightly reckless, Billy sets out to try his new abilities as a Shazam, and actually it’s not all that easy to control superpower, flies, and lightning. But soon he has to use his powers for more than to skip school. Because in the form of Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong) is facing a deadly danger and only Billy can stop him. Can he take responsibility and master the power of Shazam in time?
