When Myra sees Jenny in a hotel lobby, she mistakens her for Jessie Morgan, a woman she bears a resemblance to. To escape her pain, Jenny on a whim goes along with pretending to be Jessie Morgan.

Jenny finds herself falling in love with her fake life and new friends. Only when a secret from Jessie's past surfaces, does Jenny's lies start to catch up with her.
