In 1974 Upstate New York, young Thaddeus Sivana is transported to the Rock of Eternity, a magical temple hidden in another dimension. He meets the ancient wizard Shazam, the last of the Council of Seven Wizards, who has spent centuries searching for a new champion who is “pure of heart” after the previous champion went mad, releasing the Seven Deadly Sins upon the world. Thaddeus is tempted by the Sins, entrapped in statues, and is deemed unworthy and banished back to Earth.
In present-day Philadelphia, foster kid Billy Batson runs afoul of the law while searching for his birth mother, and is placed in a group home run by Victor and Rosa Vazquez with five other foster kids; Mary Bromfield, Pedro Peña, Eugene Choi, Darla Dudley and Freddy Freeman, a superhero enthusiast. Meanwhile, the adult Sivana discovers a way to return to the Rock of Eternity. There, he steals the Eye of Sin, becoming the Sins’ vessel and besting the Wizard before returning to Earth.
At school, Billy saves Freddy from bullies and is chased into a subway, where he is summoned by Shazam and chosen as his new champion. By calling Shazam’s name, Billy is transformed into an adult superhero endowed with the wizard’s name; thanking Billy, the wizard turns to dust, leaving behind his staff. Returning home, Billy and Freddy explore the extent of his newfound powers; electricity manipulation, invulnerability, superhuman strength, speed and flight. Freddy’s videos of Shazam testing his powers become a viral sensation, and Billy begins skipping school to use his powers for money and fame in Shazam form. Seeing Shazam’s champion save a bus on the news, Sivana easily defeats him and demands he surrender his powers, but Billy transforms back into a kid and escapes in the crowd. From the news, Sivana deduces Billy’s identity and abducts Freddy to find Billy.
At the Vazquez home, the other children also deduce Billy’s secret and tell him they have found his mother, who lives nearby. Billy meets his mother, learning she abandoned him when she was a single teenage mom. Sivana calls Billy, having taken his foster siblings hostage, and Billy as Shazam agrees to give Sivana his powers to spare his family’s lives. Sivana and Shazam travel to the Rock of Eternity, where Sivana takes the wizard’s staff, but the siblings follow and attack Sivana. Shazam uses the distraction to stun Sivana, and they realize that Sivana loses his powers when all Seven Sins leave his body.
