Complete Storyline and information about Jolt
The story of Jolt centers on Lindy (Kate Beckinsale), a bouncer who suffers from impulse control disorder. In her job, sometimes that’s not such a bad thing. Lindy has no problem standing up to others, no matter how rebellious they are. In everyday life, however, the disorder causes her a lot of trouble. A normal life is impossible for her.
Since therapy with Dr. Munchin (Stanley Tucci) produces only limited success, Lindy resorts to an unconventional method. An electroshock vest is supposed to help her get her aggression under control. Overnight, she becomes a new person. But then Lindy’s life is thrown into disarray by a disturbing event.
Justin (Jai Courtney), her new boyfriend, is murdered. Without hesitation, Lindy sets out on a quest for revenge to hunt down the killer. The stun vest proves to be a useful tool in the process. But soon she is targeted by Detective Nevin (Laverne Cox) and Detective Vicars (Bobby Cannavale) and must fear for her own freedom.
