Simon is a shy, socially awkward office worker who is overlooked by everyone in his unedifying existence including his boss, his mother and the woman of his dreams, Hannah. He feels powerless and isolated in an indifferent world. New co-worker James upsets the balance - he is the physical double of Simon but personality-wise, his exact opposite: confident, engaging and enviably charming around women. Slowly but surely, James begins to take over Simon's life.
