Steve McQueen's blistering thriller with four women who take fate into their own hands after their husbands' crimes leave them with debts to settle.

From Oscar®-winning director Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption.

Four women with nothing to lose and nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities conspire to forge a future on their own terms. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands.

This twisting, turning heist drama is made all the more entertaining thanks to an all-star cast including Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel KaluuyaCarrie Coon, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.
