Synopsis
Simon is a timid man, scratching out an existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the women of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life. It’s a nightmare from which he can’t awake.
