‘Breaking Girl Code’ Story

As Andi searches for new friends on BFF, she is contacted by a girl named Farrah, who seems to have a lot of things in common with her at first, from her taste in books and writing to her personality and upbringing. Hitting it off over chat, they decide to meet at a local cafe, and everything is well until Andi leaves. Farrah sends Andi’s pictures to a mysterious guy named Ethan, who wants to meet her for drinks on the weekend. Andi tags along with Farrah and a few of her friends when she is invited to an exclusive club called The Break, oblivious to the fact that Farrah’s boyfriend, Ethan, will also be arriving with a couple of his colleagues. She tries to go along with it as Farrah leaves her alone and goes on to spend time with Ethan, but she panics and leaves when Jason, one of Ethan’s friends, grabs her after she refuses to return his advances. Although Ethan acts concerned when he hears from Andi that Jason has tried to grab her, he claims that he likes her ‘feistiness’ once she leaves, giving off some seriously creepy vibes. After Andi leaves, Jason moves on to another girl, Kayla, and offers her a drink. Although reluctant at first, she accepts it, having no idea that Jason had roofied her drink. The next morning, Sean breaks up with Andi, stating that they barely see each other due to their busy work schedules, and Andi, in desperate need of a friend, gets in touch with Farrah. Andi voices her concerns with Ethan, as she feels that he has some sort of control over Farrah, but she refuses to admit it, and Andi, sensing she may be crossing a line, abandons the conversation and leaves. Soon after, Farrah gets a call from Ethan, who instructs her to bring Andi and another girl named Miranda to the bar that they were going to visit that night. Farrah, feeling guilty for dragging Andi into something shady, tells him that she hadn’t been in contact with her since the previous day, but Ethan insists that she bring her since his colleagues wanted ‘another shot’ at her.

Again at the club, Ethan’s friend Marco tries to flirt with Andi, and not being able to tolerate it, she takes leave and goes outside, where Charlie, another one of Ethan’s colleagues, comes to talk to her, and he reveals that he runs a very powerful networking firm in the city and provides incentives to his co-workers to go out and hook up with attractive girls at the clubs that he arranges the meets in. Meanwhile, Kayla walks into the club and confronts Farrah, telling her that Jason had assaulted her the previous night and showing her the bruises that he had left on her neck, but Ethan jumps in and threatens her to stay silent, revealing that he had pictures of her in compromising sexual positions that would ruin her career. After being threatened by Ethan at the club, Kayla tries to leave the place, but a mysterious car appears from nowhere and runs her over in the parking space, which indicates serious foul play on Ethan’s part, as he was concerned with her coming out with her secret to destroy his reputation. Simultaneously, Andi gets a job at a publishing company located in the building of Ethan and Jason’s office, and on her first day, she meets Jason in the elevator, who invites her for drinks to celebrate her job offer, but she declines. There, she also meets a school friend of Farrah, Shannon, who seems strangely hostile towards her childhood friend and gives Andi her contact number to call if anything weird ever happens to her while she is with Ethan and his friends.


‘Breaking Girl Code’ Ending

At another party, Marco drugs Miranda and Holly and attempts to take Miranda over to his house but is intercepted by Andi, who had just been warned by Shannon that something like this could happen. Apparently, Ethan and his friends regularly drugged unsuspecting young girls to take advantage of them and later threatened them with compromising pictures to keep them quiet. She takes the two girls over to her apartment to get them to sober up, but the next morning when she suggests that they take a drug test, they refuse, leaving her with no other choice but to contact Sean, her ex-boyfriend, to somehow convince him to initiate surveillance over Ethan and his colleagues. But to her surprise, Sean admits that he couldn’t help her because she did not have any proof. Having no other option, she gets in touch with Shannon, who had previously warned her about Ethan, to devise a plan to obtain evidence against him. But their plan is overheard by someone, and Shannon is murdered in the stairwell of her office building. Determined to seek justice for Shannon and prevent Ethan from hurting anyone else, Andi takes matters into her own hands. She goes through Ethan’s belongings in his office and finds an iPad containing pictures of all the girls that he had trapped, including her own. But Charlie walks in and discovers her copying a folder from Ethan’s iPad onto her phone. She somehow convinces him to help her, as he appears to be a good person, and he stalls Ethan in his office as Andi escapes with the folder.

Andi calls Farrah to her apartment to confront her about Ethan’s shady activities and tells her that she could help her bring his network down if she was willing to admit to the authorities that she was used by him to bring these unsuspecting girls to their peril. Farrah agrees and takes her to her place to find an envelope of Rohypnol (the date-rape drug) that Ethan had given her for safekeeping, but while they look for it, Ethan appears and violently attacks them, injecting Andi with the drug and brings her to the club to keep her prisoner. Andi instinctively records the event on her phone and sends a voice note to Sean, who immediately follows them to the club. To Andi’s surprise, Charlie, the guy she had once assumed to be a good person, attempts to rape her but is rescued by Sean, who appears just in time to arrest Ethan and save the day. A few weeks later, Andi published an article about the events that she had gone through and was praised by the publishing company she works for her bravery and determination. Everything fell into place as Sean approached her on the street and asked for another chance to date her, which she happily agreed to. The film ends on a happy note as Andi orchestrates Farrah’s meeting with Miranda and Holly, who had broken off all ties with her since the incident with Marco, and convinces them to forgive her for her mistakes. The girls reconcile after a tumultuous set of events that had made their friendship stronger than ever.
