Liza (Emily Blunt) is a blue-collar single mom who lost her job and is now at the end of her rope. A chance meeting with pharmaceutical rep Pete Brenner (Chris Evans) puts her on an upward path economically but dubiously path ethically as she becomes entangled in a dangerous racketeering scheme. Dealing with her unhinged boss (Andy Garcia), the worsening medical condition of her daughter (Chloe Coleman), and a growing awareness of the devastation the company is causing forces Liza to examine her choices. Pain Hustlers is a sharp and revealing look at what some people do out of desperation and others do out of greed.
