Thrillers are always a good watch, and over the years, plenty of these thrillers have involved crimes against women. By the looks of it, it can be assumed that these movies end up letting women know the dangers out there for them. There is no dearth of films that talk about how the world out there is cruel to women, and how it becomes difficult for them to even deal with themselves after the crime is committed. Breaking Girl Code, is about a bunch of women who get roped into a ring of strange men spearheaded by a woman who pretends to be their friend. Will any of these girls sense there is something wrong? How will they get themselves out of this devious circle of men?
Andi In Boston
Breaking Girl Code begins with Farrah receiving a voice message from a girl she had met a couple of days ago, and it says the woman does not know how she reached home the other night, and that she has bruises all over her body. Farrah chooses to ignore the message and ends up meeting another girl at a coffee shop. Farrah comes across as a shady woman who meets women under the guise of friendship and leads them on. There is no indication of what the woman did to her friend to cause bruises. Is she the one who assaults them by drugging them, or does she hire someone to do the deed? It is initially assumed that maybe the woman is a psychopath who comes across as a normal girl from the city of Boston.
Andi is a recent college graduate who has moved from New York to Boston to stay closer to her boyfriend and is looking for a job in publishing. Since she lives in the city, she has rented her apartment just to maintain her independence in the city. Since she is new in the city, she does not know anyone other than her boyfriend, who works as a cop in the city’s police department, and being a rookie, he has odd working hours. Andi is trying to maneuver between trying to find work and finding new people to hang out with other than her boyfriend. In a bid to do that, she joins a social app for people to make friends called Befriends. Andi’s situation is such that she must resort to an app for like-minded people. She is a voracious reader, and she wants to connect with people who read. She connects with Farrah on the app, and this woman, just like Andi, comes across as a bibliophile, and they connect over their love for books. They meet at a local café, where Andi talks about being new to the city. Farrah lets her know that she is a local and that she could show her around. Farrah and Andi hit it off, and they cannot wait to meet again.
Andi is excited to have Farrah in her life because she is finally making friends, and this woman doesn’t seem to come across as someone shady who could lead her into any trouble of any sort. Little did she know she was going to fall into trouble, thanks to Farrah. Andi lets her boyfriend Sean know about the club she is headed to, and he lets her know that that club requires a password to get in, and that’s why that place is exclusive. Andi meets up with Farrah and her bunch of friends at the club, and all of them are looking forward to a girl’s night out. Farrah invites her boyfriend, Ethan, and a bunch of his friends who would like to get to know Farrah’s friends. She feels weird about having men hover over them all the time. One of Ethan’s friends, Jason, inappropriately touches Andi, and she leaves the party in pure disgust. It’s not that she is angry at Farrah or Ethan; she just wants to head home. Andi felt a little bit awkward about the whole scenario at the bar. She felt there was something off about the men who just walked in with Ethan, but she did not overthink it because it was the first time she was meeting with Ethan. She did not want to judge the man or Farrah either.
Sadly for Andi, Sean breaks up with her because he knows his work is going to be hectic from here on, and it will get difficult for him and her to find time for each other. Andi gets a job as well. He does not want to spend time waiting for her, and he would not want Andi to wait for him all this time when she can be with someone available to her. Heartbroken over his words, Andi walks out without looking back. Andi did not see the breakup coming, especially when she moved to the city to be closer to him. With him gone, she has only Farrah to depend on and the girls she met through Farrah, Holly and Miranda. They become fast friends, but Farrah seems to be more and more attached to Ethan, which bothers Andi. To celebrate Andi’s singlehood, the girls head out to party at the same club when Ethan shows up again with a bunch of his friends. Andi, this time, is taken aback by Erhan’s habit of showing up with men, which makes not just Andi uncomfortable but Miranda and Holly as well.
Farrah and Ethan confronted Kayla, who had gone home with one of Ethan’s friends and ended up with bruises all around her neck. Farrah freezes at the accusation, but Ethan blackmails Kayla with the compromising images he has of her. Realizing that Farrah is feeling restless with Ethan, she asks Miranda, Holly and Farrah to join her at her home to spend the night, and all of them become good friends. Farrah, when she is away from Ethan, gets to see another version of herself, which is a concerned woman who genuinely loves being with Andi, Miranda, and Holly. All of them enjoy each other’s company, and they celebrate each other’s success as well. Farrah turns out to be a good person who wants to be friends with Andi, Miranda, and Holly because she reveals that all her school life, she was a nerd and a loner. Somehow, Ethan gets her. She feels good and different whenever she is with the three women she has met, and she tries hard not to involve them in the ring Ethan has created to serve his clients.
‘Breaking Girl Code’ Ending explained: Will Andi And Farrah Be Able To Implicate Ethan?
Andi is offered a job at the publishing house, which happens to be on the same floor as Ethan’s, which again puts her in an awkward position because she feels weird about the whole scenario. She also gets to meet Shannon, who was Farrah’s childhood friend. Shannon, though, is repulsed at the sight of Ethan, and she judges Andi for hanging with Farrah and her boyfriend, Ethan. Shannon tries to indicate something about what Farrah is up to, but Andi is in no mood to hear her speak ill about the only person who was with her during her breakup with Sean. Shannon is concerned for the bunch of girls that always hang out with Farrah and Ethan. She knows Ethan is up to something to keep the clients happy and satisfied, but she has to have evidence in hand and women to come up and inform the police about it, too, for the whole ring to be busted. But sadly, not one woman is coming forward, and Kayla, who had threatened Ethan and Farrah, went into a coma after a car ran over her.
Shannon comes by the very private club by bribing the bartender, and she informs Andi that Ethan runs a ring where he gets his girlfriend to get girls to this club, spikes their drinks, and the powerful men that he brings along with him take the girls home with them and sexually assault them as they remain unconscious. Andi is shocked; she cannot believe Farrah would be indulging in these nefarious activities. On reaching back at the pub, she notices Miranda and Holly partially passed out and one of Ethan’s friends taking advantage of Miranda. Andi manages to take the girls out of the situation, but she is unable to help Farrah out because she is hell-bent on being with Ethan. The girls wake up the next day to release something that was off last night. Except for Andi, no one wants to talk about what happened to them. They are just happy to be saved by Andi in the nick of time, and they would rather not talk about the night. The women are programmed not to talk about assaults that happen to them. They are sure the case would be blown out of proportion and would not be handled sensitively. This makes women like Miranda and Holy, who did nothing wrong, find it unsafe to even talk about it, let alone file a case against the rapist. Andi ropes in her ex-boyfriend Sean in this matter after what Shannon told her. Sean’s being a cop gives her a perspective on what happens in such cases. Even if there is an accusation against Ethan, he will defend himself in such a manner that the women will be publicly named and shamed. This gives women another reason not to file any complaints. Rape and assault cases are very hard to crack, even in current times, because a lot of factors must be taken into consideration that might not favor the victim most of the time.
With the help of Shannon, Andi helps Ethan’s office get all the images she requires that Ethan has of the girls with him. He uses them to blackmail them. However, he keeps this secret away from Farrah as well because he knows Farrah will lose her mind if she learns the arrangement of the ring that Ethan runs. After Andi gets her information and the images, she learns that Shannon was brutally attacked by someone who managed to damage the CCTV camera as well. Sean, who is at the scene of the crime, tries to pacify Andi into pursuing Farrah and asks her to help Andi get to Ethan. Farrah is the only one close to Ethan. She can manage to bring him down. Andi, at Farrah’s home, requests that she help her bring down Ethan because he is capable of ruining Farrah’s life as well. Farrah finally agrees to gather as much information and papers as she has that can incriminate her boyfriend. Ethan followed Andi to his home and managed to drug her as well so that she could get out. He again manipulates Farrah to help her get rid of Andi. Andi thankfully sent the voice message to Sean just in time. Sean reaches the scene of the crime when he arrests Ethan in no time, and Farrah manages to get rid of the man who is about to sexually assault Andi.
Ethan’s elaborate ring of him spiking women’s drink and letting them get assaulted by his high-profile clients is finally busted, thanks to Andi and Sean. Andi is more than happy to see Sean come around to help her get out of the situation. As exes, they can help and sort each other out. Andi did not realize Sean would be willing to help her, but he did. With Farrah being a victim, she was not sentenced to any jail time. The ending scene of Breaking Girl Code Andi bringing Farrah back into her, Miranda, and Holly’s lives because Andi saw from close quarters the abuse she went through when being with Ethan. Andi believes Farrah deserves a normal friendship where no one harasses or manipulates her. Though Miranda and Holly are skeptical of bringing Farrah back into their lives, Andi is convinced that Farrah was taken advantage of because of her nature and that she deserves a second chance. All four of them finally get along as old friends without any men interrupting them this time.
