He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams, copy room girl Hannah (Mia Wasikowska). Undermined wherever he turns it appears his life couldn’t get worse - that is until the sudden arrival of a new co-worker, his exact doppelganger and opposite in character.
