Rachel Watson is an alcoholic who divorced her husband, Tom Watson, after catching him cheating on her with their real estate agent, Anna Boyd. During their marriage, Rachel was prone to alcohol-induced blackouts during which she engaged in self-destructive behavior that Tom later informed her about, and to which she attributes the ending of their marriage, in addition to her being sterile.
Rachel shares an apartment with her friend Cathy. She spends her days commuting on a train and often stalking Tom, Anna, and their newborn daughter Evie. During her trips, Rachel grows fascinated with Tom’s neighbors, Scott and Megan Hipwell, a young couple in what Rachel believes is a perfect marriage. In reality, Scott is aggressive and controlling, while Megan is detached and unfaithful, maintaining affairs with numerous men, including her psychiatrist, Dr. Kamal Abdic.
While passing by the neighborhood one day, a drunken Rachel spots Megan kissing Abdic on her balcony and becomes infuriated by what she perceives as Megan’s “ruining” her perfect marriage. After a drinking binge, Rachel leaves the train to confront Megan, only to black out and awaken hours later at her apartment, injured. Rachel later finds out that Megan is missing and presumed dead, and is questioned by Detective Sergeant Riley, who suspects Rachel might be involved due to her recent erratic behavior.
Rachel, pretending to be a friend of Megan’s, approaches Scott and tells him about Megan’s affair. Scott identifies Abdic as Megan’s lover. Believing Abdic is behind Megan’s disappearance, Rachel schedules an appointment with him, wherein they discuss Rachel’s troubled relationship with Tom, particularly an incident in which she lashed out at an office party and aggravated Tom’s boss’s wife Martha, leading to Tom being fired.
At a bar, Rachel recognizes another commuter, who reveals that he followed her when she left the train the night that Megan disappeared and heard her cursing at a woman before being beaten by an unseen figure in a tunnel, where the commuter later found Rachel, although she declined his help. Rachel returns to the tunnel and remembers seeing Megan with Tom and shouting at her before being ambushed. Meanwhile, Anna becomes suspicious of Tom after Sgt. Riley suggests Tom might want to stay in contact with Rachel which is why she keeps calling. Anna decides to try to hack into his computer; in the process, she finds a secret phone with several voice messages to another woman Tom is having an affair with, and she discovers that the phone was Megan’s.
Megan is found dead and forensics determine she was pregnant, but the child was neither Scott’s nor Abdic’s. Scott becomes a suspect and confronts Rachel, believing she is conspiring against him, and in the process he reveals he assaulted Megan prior to her death. Rachel runs into Martha and apologizes for her behavior at the party, only to discover she didn’t lash out or get Tom fired, but rather Tom was fired for having sexual relations with numerous co-workers. Rachel realizes Tom planted false memories in her head to account for his own abusive behavior.
Anna identifies the woman Tom was exchanging phone calls with as Megan, and finds out Tom and Megan were having an affair. Rachel realizes Megan was pregnant with Tom’s baby and confided that to Abdic, and she misinterpreted the nature of their encounter on the balcony. After leaving the train that day, Rachel caught Tom meeting with Megan and shouted at her, mistaking her for Anna. Tom then beat Rachel before returning to Megan, who announced she was keeping the baby, which would thereby expose their affair and Tom chose to murder Megan.
Rachel goes to Tom’s house to warn Anna, but Anna reveals that she already knows. Tom arrives and confronts them, and while he argues with Anna, Rachel steals a corkscrew and steps outside to call the police. However, Tom catches up to her and attempts to strangle her, as Anna watches from the window. Rachel stabs Tom in the neck with the corkscrew, but he is not dead yet. Anna then exits the house and pushes the corkscrew deeper into Tom’s neck, finishing him off.
Rachel and Anna come to an understanding and separately confirm to the police that Rachel killed Tom in self-defense, after he revealed himself to be Megan’s killer. One year later, Rachel has become sober and found a new job, and while still commuting on the same train, she sits on the opposite side, leaving her old neighborhood in the past.
