Timothy Van Bender lives a magical life: his business is doing well; he has a beautiful and charming wife, Katherine; and his young sexy secretary, Tricia, greets him each morning with a flirtatious smile.
Then, one Tuesday, everything changes. Timothy wakes to learn that his hedge fund has lost $24 million on a bad bet against the Japanese Yen. Timothy decides to double down and bet again. But the Yen keeps climbing, and his business investors start asking questions. With his company on the brink of collapse, he gets a call from his wife, who phones to say goodbye, moments before jumping off a cliff to her death. Timothy can't believe it - and nor, for that matter, can the local police.
And that's when his troubles start. As the police investigate Timothy, he investigates his dead wife's secrets. But when Tricia shows up on the doorstep, claiming to be his dead wife, and knowing secrets that only Katherine could know, Timothy's not sure what to believe.
Has he been given a second chance at happiness or is he being played for a fool in an elaborate scam that may cost him his life?
