After her mother's death Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza) is left without any family or friends, but with a burning obsession with Instagram star Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen). Taylor lives a seemingly perfect life and Ingrid has her mind set on becoming her best friend. Ingrid moves from Pennsylvania to Los Angeles, and as she gets closer to Taylor her behavior grows increasingly disturbing and dangerous. Inspired by THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, INGRID GOES WEST is a modern twist on the story of a young person who wants to become someone else.
