Rachel is an alcoholic who commutes to and from Manhattan every day on the train. On her commute she passes the house in which she lived with her now ex-husband. He still lives there with his new wife and baby. To distract herself from looking in on her old life, she creates an idealised fantasy world for the couple she often sees a couple of doors down. When the wife in this couple goes missing, Rachel finds herself inserted into the investigation both by circumstances and then through her own continued bad choices. But will Rachel find the truth or will her alcohol addled brain only show her what she thinks she knows?

Based on The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
