Jenny Mason falls asleep and wakes to to find her 'twin' siting in her front room. The twin (Louise) tells Jenny she is from a parallel universe and that she is here to stay. Both girls go shopping and things are not what it seems between them. On their return, Louise unwhittingly propositions a tradesman in exchange for assisting her with putting some furniture together. The man is angered by her refusal to sleep with him once the work is complete and goes after her 'twin' Jenny, grabbing her by the throat. Having woken up, Jenny believes it to all be a dream, but Louise appears with more bad news when she opens the front room door.

This film has full opening and closing titles and credits with several green screen chromakey sequences throughout. (Some of the shots are damaged and the audio is very low).
