Four widows become unlikely friends over the debt left behind by their late husbands who all died in an attempted robbery. Veronica (Viola Davis), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) decide to take fate into their own hands and finish off the business their husbands could not.
When one of the wives is raped by someone she was dating, the foursome decide to hatch a plan that will give her the revenge she deserves. The plan is simple: dump him in the middle of a desert without his clothes so that he has to hitch back to town naked.
But things don’t go exactly the way they hope when they realise they’ve accidentally killed him…
