Synopsis[edit]

Erik and Adam are identical twins, living completely different lives. Erik is a broke surfer bum, Adam a successful family and businessman. When Erik seeks out his brother for the first time in 15 years, a quarrel ends with Adam’s wife, Ingrid, accidentally killing Adam. To avoid being arrested for murder and save his brother’s family, Erik takes over Adam’s identity. His biggest challenge is not avoiding getting caught but pretending to be someone he is not.[4]
