A Vigilante Official Trailer (2019) - Olivia Wilde.
Sadie (Olivia Wilde) is a woman who works for hire, helping men, women and children escape abusive homes. She struggles with money, asking for whatever the people she helps can give. Sadie is invited to the home of Andrea (Betsy Aidem) and Michael Shaund (C.J. Wilson) under the pretense of working for medical insurance. Sadie instead beats up Michael and forces him to transfer his money to his wife and leave their home. Sadie tells Andrea to pass on her details to anyone she feels needs them. We see Sadie living very plainly in a motel room. She has a map in her room which she is using to mark off area she has covered for a yet undisclosed reason. Sadie then rescues a young boy, Zach (Kyle Catlett), and his brother from their drug-addled mother, who had been keeping the younger brother locked away in his bedroom. Sadie knocks out the mother and locks her in the bathroom. As Child Protective Services are on the way, she tells Zach to contact her if he or his brother are ever hurt again and no one believes them. When Zach asks to stay with Sadie, she tells him it would not be safe. The film periodically cuts to Sadie's past in group therapy for survivors of domestic violence. In group therapy, Sadie shares her "leaving story": her abusive husband wanted her and her young son to move out of their home and live off the grid. When she tried to escape with her son, he chased them both with a knife and killed their son in a fit of rage. In a flashback, Sadie returns to her old home, finding some of her son's belongings there. She notices a poster for Lake Placid that had been left behind, and decides to take it. She also takes her son's drawing which we see Sadie holding at the beginning of the film. Through these flashbacks we find out her husband went missing after killing their son, and therefore she cannot receive the payout from his life insurance policy.
