Living the perfect life in the perfect world, Barbie (Margot Robbie) has it all. Until one day when things start changing and her perfect world seems to fall apart. From her shower being cold to falling off her roof, rather than floating down, and her heels falling flat to the ground — Barbie now has to choose between her perfect life and finding out about the real world.
Driving out of Barbie Land and into California with Ken (Ryan Gosling), the two set out on a journey of self-discovery, experiencing life without perfection. Trouble follows as the CEO of Mattel (Will Ferrell) aims to put Barbie back in her box, silencing her journey and getting his chance in the spotlight.
