"Damsels in Distress" is a comedy about a trio of beautiful girls--the dynamic leader Violet (Greta Gerwig), principled Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and sultry Heather (Carrie MacLemore)--as they set out to revolutionize life at their college with a program that seeks to help severely depressed students through good hygiene and dance. The girls' friendships are threatened when they welcome transfer student Lily (Analeigh Tipton) into the group and become romantically entangled with a series of men, including smooth Charlie (Adam Brody), dreamboat Xavier (Hugo Becker), and frat boys Frank (Ryan Metcalf) and Thor (Billy Magnussen).
