Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive but not how to live. She leads a simple life, following the same weekly routine for her whole adult life, which includes buying the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.
Eleanor is happy, but one simple act of kindness is about to shatter her walls. Suddenly she must face the dark corners of her traumatic past which she has happily avoided up until now and learn to navigate the world in a new light.
