The story is about Elizabeth Holmes, who girl-bossed her way to fame and wealth without confirming if her innovation worked. If you are already aware of the true story of Holmes’ decline, then there’s not much for you to know in the show, but there are some fantastic performances from all the characters that make the show worth watching anyway.
