The plot of Emily the Criminal (2022)
Emily is a young lady saddled with $70,000 in school loans for an Arts Degree she dropped halfway through. To make matters worse, her felony assault record makes it impossible for her to get decent-paying employment.
While working at her catering job, a coworker tells her of a position that pays $200 per hour. She accepts the job as a dummy shopper to increase her wages. Emily tries shady jobs to supplement her money, including purchasing products using stolen credit cards. Her involvement in criminality deepens from there.
Even though she began to generate fast cash, Emily quickly discovered that black-market business had deadly consequences.
On July 6, 2022, a trailer for Emily the Criminal was revealed. The first scene begins with Emily being asked what she would do with some money; she says that she wants to be free.
However, the following moments demonstrate how dangerous her situation is; she wants a job to pay off her debts and the rising interest rates. While deciding what to do with her life, she meets a gang of guys who appear to be con artists, and she is quickly exposed to a life of crime.
