Summary

Inspired by Dostoyevsky’s short story, The Double tells the story of Simon, a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things.

To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.
