Sarah is an outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon who, after witnessing a woman's suicide, assumes the stranger's identity. Oddly enough, the woman looks just like her. Sarah is keen to solve her problems by taking on her lookalike's identity and savings, but instead she is thrust into a dizzying mystery. Sarah, along with viewers, learns early on that she and the woman are in fact clones — and that there are more people out there like her. It doesn't help that an assassin is pegging off clones one by one.
