What Is Not Okay About?

Not Okay is a black comedy movie that follows the life of aspiring influencer and writer Danni Sanders, who goes to extreme lengths to gain followers by faking a trip to Paris.

However, her lies come back to bite her when her new followers believe she is the survivor of a terrorist attack. Danni is forced to reckon with her morals and what it means to be authentic in the world of likes, dislikes and cancel culture.

The official synopsis per Hulu and Disney+ says the movie "follows Danni Sanders (Zoey Deutch), an aimless aspiring writer with no friends, no romantic prospects, and — worst of all — no followers, fakes an Instagram-friendly trip to Paris in the hopes of boosting her social media clout.

"When a terrifying incident strikes the City of Lights, Danni unwittingly falls into a lie bigger than she ever imagined. She "returns" as a hero, even striking up an unlikely friendship with Rowan (Mia Isaac), a real trauma survivor dedicated to societal change, and scooping up the man of her dreams, Colin (Dylan O'Brien).

"As an influencer and advocate, Danni finally has the life and audience she always wanted. But it's only a matter of time before the facade cracks, and she learns the hard way that the Internet loves a takedown."

Is There a Trailer for Not Okay?

Yes, there is a trailer for Not Okay, introducing audiences to the complicated world of Danni Sanders.

The trailer beings with Danni's editor calling her writing "offensive" and "tone deaf" after pitching an article.

In a voice-over, Zoey Deutch as Danni can be heard saying: "Have you ever wanted to be noticed so badly, you didn't even care what it was for?"

Audiences also catch a glimpse of Dylan O'Brien with bleached blonde hair as Colin, the cool guy in the office with a a huge social media following, something Danni envies.

When Danni tells the little white lie that she is going to Paris to impress Colin, viewers watch as she goes to extreme lengths to trick him into believing she actually went.

The trailer gets darker when it is revealed Danni fakes being the survivor of a Paris terrorist attack and one thing is for sure, things are not going to be okay as Danni warns the audience to be "careful what you f****** wish for."

Not Okay premieres Friday, July 29 on Hulu and Disney+
