In the thriller film Promising Young Woman, a woman tries to cope with a lingering trauma from her past. Cassie Thomas is a 30-year-old dropout from Forrest Medical School who lives with her parents, Stanley and Susan, whilst working at a coffee shop. Years earlier, her med school classmate, Al Monroe, raped her best friend and classmate, Nina Fisher; there was no investigation by the school or consequences from the legal system. Cassie now spends her nights feigning drunkenness in clubs and bars, luring men to take her to their homes and revealing her sobriety when they try to take advantage of her, embarrassing them while keeping a record of how many she caught. Cassie goes on a legitimate date with former classmate Ryan, who mentions Al is getting married. She begins a plan to exact revenge on Al and others responsible for him getting away with the rape. She meets another former classmate and friend, Madison, who continues to deny Nina was raped. Cassie gets Madison drunk and hires a man to take Madison to a hotel room. With no memory of what happened, Madison leaves several distraught voicemails for Cassie, who does not answer them.
