What is A Simple Favor about?

Stephanie Smothers (Anna Kendrick) is a widowed single mother who runs a vlog featuring crafts and recipes for parents. Emily Nelson (Blake Lively) is a PR director for a fashion company. The two women become friends when their sons share a play date. Over martinis, they exchange confessions; Stephanie admits to Emily that as a teenager, she had sex with her half-brother Chris (Dustin Milligan). Emily expresses her frustration at the lack of success of her husband, English professor Sean Townsend (Henry Golding), and their poor financial situation.
Emily has a work crisis and asks Stephanie to babysit her son while Sean is in London attending to his injured mother. After two days with Emily not returning her calls, Stephanie calls Emily's employer, Dennis Nylon (Rupert Friend), and is told that Emily is in Miami. Stephanie then calls Sean, who contacts the police. Trying to solve her disappearance, Stephanie looks for answers by sneaking into Emily's office.
After looking around, Stephanie comes across a photo of Emily that was hidden on her desk. Stephanie had wanted to make missing person flyers but could not find any pictures of Emily until finding this one; she uses it to make the posters.
Detective Summerville (Chris Owens) reports that Emily lied about flying to Miami and that she rented a car. A fan of Stephanie's vlog reports seeing Emily in Michigan and Emily's car is discovered near a summer camp, where police find her drowned body in the lake. Stephanie and Sean bond over their shared grief and begin a sexual relationship.
