The Girl On The Train is based on a true story, and was adapted from a play by Jean-Marie Besset. The film adaptation is about lies, wealthy people, Judaism and an anti-Semitic attack on a suburban train.
Jeanne is a skater who lives in a Paris suburb with her mother Louise. When she meets another skater, Franck, their romance develops quickly. She impulsively decides to move in with him rather than accept a job as a secretary for a legal firm headed by Samuel, a renowned specialist in cases involving anti-Semitic violence, and who has a past with Jeanne's parents. But when things go wrong she does something that has severe consequences.
