Julia, is an archetypal middle-aged, hard-driving female executive. Although she's just been made CEO of her company, Julia is plagued by insecurity and doubt. All this makes her the perfect target for Paula, a cocky, tattooed young assistant she fires, then they end up together when they are both stranded at the same airport. Paula plays major head games with the older woman, honing in on her vulnerabilities with uncanny precision as she goads Julia into helping her take violent revenge on the smarmy headhunter she claims date-raped her college friend
