"Zoot Suit" was originally performed as a musical by the Center Theatre Group and later on Broadway by the Shubert Organization. The motion picture retains the original theatrical style and was filmed entirely at the Center Theatre Group's Aquarius Theatre in Hollywood. Olmos' character El Pachuco serves as the narrator, Henry Reyna's conscience and the archetypal "zoot-suiter." The film uses nonlinear storytelling by presenting the plot elements in flashback, song and symbolism.

"Zoot Suit" begins by introducing the zoot suit culture, which many minorities embraced in the '40s. It opens in a club with the dance number "Zoot Suit Boogie" and the character of Henry Reyna is introduced. Henry's parents are hard-working immigrants but Henry and his siblings are more interested in having a good time, going out to clubs and dancing. Henry is ready to join the Navy to fight in World War II but has one last night on the town.
