What is Poor Things about

Poor Things takes place in a futuristic world and see a eccentric scientist bring a pregnant woman back to life after she kills herself by transplanting the brain from her unborn child to hers. While she is adult in physical form, the woman (Bella Baxter) is of infant mind and must learn how to live in the same vein as a newly born child would.

Kept in house by the scientist, named Godwin Baxter, she begins to have desire, urges and a need to leave the 'family' home and runs away on a whirlwind adventure across the continents with a charming lawyer, where she grows to be free, make her own choices and grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for liberation.
