It wouldn't be the first time that identical twins Gillian and Melina Lloyd switched identities, yet it's the first time as adults that they've even considered the prank. Melina, the more impetuous twin, proposes that her circumspect sister take her place as media escort to NASA astronaut and national hero Colonel Christopher "Chief" Hart. Gillian declines for a very personal reason -- she's preoccupied with whether or not the artificial insemination she underwent that day will be successful. Besides, she warns Melina, such a switch could have unexpected consequences. Identical twins Melina and Gillian Lloyd share all of their thoughts and experiences. However, each follows her own lifestyle and career path. Gillian is in real estate but wishes to start a family before it is too late. In her public relations position, Melina is assigned to escort a famous astronaut, Christopher "Chief" Heart. The next day Gillian is found, and the case is closed when the murderer is quickly tracked down and discovered to have committed suicide. But that special bond between twins tells Melina that there is more to this tragedy. With the aid of the Chief she sets out to find answers.
