One day, Susan (Amy Adams), an unhappy art gallery owner in a crumbling marriage receives a package from her ex-husband Tony (Jake Gyllenhaal), whom she left 20 years earlier. Inside is a book manuscript called "Nocturnal Animals," which he notes that she inspired him to write, and he asks for her opinion about it.
Left alone in her mansion while her current husband is away on a business trip, Susan begins to read it and quickly becomes obsessed with the script, which revolves around a man whose family vacation turns deadly after his wife and daughter are abducted. Susan interprets the violent thriller as a secret threat of symbolic revenge, and finds herself recalling her past marriage, while confronting some dark truths about herself.
