Plot summary

What is Ma movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Ma" movie plot summary.

Teenager Maggie Thompson (Diana Silvers) moves with her mother Erica (Juliette Lewis) to her Ohio hometown after Erica's husband leaves her. At her new high school, Maggie befriends Haley (McKaley Miller), Darrell (Dante Brown), Chaz (Gianni Paolo), and Andy (Corey Fogelmanis), who immediately develops a crush on her. They convince Sue Ann "Ma" Ellington (Octavia Spencer), a veterinary technician, to help buy them alcohol because they are underage. Sue Ann (Kyanna Simone Simpson) anonymously reports the teenagers' activities, but they are released because of the officer's history with Andy's father, Ben (Luke Evans). The next day, Sue Ann invites the teenagers to drink in her basement. The next time they go, Sue Ann has decorated her basement and many other teenagers show up at her house to party, making her popular among the students.
However, her hospitality starts to annoy the group as she continuously harasses them to spend time with her. One night, Sue Ann sees Andy and Maggie kissing and becomes jealous; she is in love with him, having had a crush on his father, Ben, in high school. She drugs Maggie and takes her earrings. The next morning, Maggie wakes up and notices her earrings are missing and is badly bruised and cut. Scared, Maggie tells Andy that she does not want to go to Sue Ann's house anymore and that she does not want him to go, either.
To earn the group's trust back, Ma lies to them that she has pancreatic cancer. As she is talking, Haley notices that she is wearing a bracelet that belongs to a friend of theirs. The girls suspect that Sue Ann has been stealing their jewelry so they go to her house to investigate. They are surprised by Genie, Sue Ann's daughter from a failed marriage; Maggie is surprised to see her walking, as she uses a wheelchair at school. Genie tells them to leave as Sue Ann arrives home, and they narrowly escape.
