Another King, another Graceland, another chance... A dozen years after Elvis Presley's death in Memphis, a man called Biggest Elvis - the oldest and fattest of a trio of Presley impersonators - galvanizes the sailors and bar girls around the huge U.S. naval base in Olongapo, Philippines.
In their act, Baby Elvis (who portrays the youthful Presley), Dude Elvis (who does the movie years), and Biggest Elvis incarnate the King's evolving life. Their popularity grows; in a tawdry, anything-goes town, a successful act becomes more than that, almost an obsession. But there are those who think that Biggest Elvis has to go, and Biggest Elvis himself senses that something is coming, something ominous. As the trio of counterfeits starts playing for real stakes, the bar girls - Whitney, Elvira, Dolly, Lucy Number Three, and Malou - take center stage themselves, before Biggest Elvis's last and greatest show.
