About Promising Young Woman: Storyline/ Plot

The dark comedy follows a young woman named Cassie, a med school dropout who pretends to be drunk at bars to lure in "nice guys" who take her home and plan to take advantage of her. Before they can, though, she reveals she's sober and plots her revenge.

The story hits back at the victim-blaming women face when they come forward with experiences of sexual harassment or assault, and the misled belief that a woman can "ruin a man's life" by accusing him of misconduct.
