A Vigilante Official Trailer (2019) - Olivia Wilde.
Sadie is a woman attending a support group following her abandonment of her husband. She works as a vigilante, helping men, women, and children escape abusive homes. She struggles with money, asking for whatever the people she helps can give and attempting to redeem a life insurance policy after her husband goes missing. Sadie invades the home of the wealthy Michael Shaund, beating him up and forcing him to transfer his money to his wife, Andrea, and leave their home. Sadie tells Andrea to pass on her details to anyone she feels needs them. Sadie then rescues a young boy and his infant brother from their drug-addled mother, who had been keeping the infant locked away in a bathroom. She tells the boy to leave the house and seek help, refusing to do any more for them. In Group Therapy, Sadie confesses her past: Her 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. 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 travel there. In a lodge, she finds a map that she recognizes from her old home, and is then ambushed by her husband. Sadie wakes up bound, her husband taunting her and welcoming her back home. After a lengthy struggle and chase, she overpowers and kills her husband, dumping his body on the road for the police to find. Sadie returns to her attorney, who tells her that since the police found her husband's body, and don't seem willing to look further into the case considering the lack of evidence and his criminal record, that the life insurance claim will be processed. Sadie then leaves, traveling again to help another woman that had contacted her.
