Instead of a stake-wielding vampire slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar plays a set of estranged twins, Bridget and Siobhan. When the recently sober Bridget witnesses a murder, she reconnects with Siobhan, who seems to have the picture perfect New York City life — until she mysteriously disappears, and Bridget decides to take her place.
