A down-and-out actor with a knack for impersonations finds his circumstances completely reversed by a chance meeting with a look-alike stranger. After a night of drinking with his new friend discussing the possibilities made possible by their similar appearance, the stranger offers the actor a ride home.
On the way there is an accident and one of them is killed. The survivor finds himself in the hospital with amnesia and everyone assumes he’s the stranger, the right-hand man for a mob boss.
The survivor plays the role that’s expected of him, despite the fact that doubt about who he is, weighs heavy on his mind. Life becomes a balancing act between the role he finds himself playing and the search for who he really is: the down-and-out actor or the mob consigliere?
