Zane is a 27 year-old small-time criminal, talented con artist and aspiring musician who is haunted by the violent death of his father, a New York City cop. Hes also an occasional drug dealer controlled by his sociopathic older brother.
One morning after a serious drinking binge, Derrick wakes up in a seedy apartment beside a beautiful stranger. She obviously knows him very welland so does everyone else who comes to the apartment. On the other side of town, Zane wakes up in a world of wealth, power and privilege beside a beautiful stranger. When she leaves him alone in the room, he spies an unattended wallet beside the bed and grabs the cash and credit cards. Intent on making a hasty exit with his newfound wealth, he gets up to leave and catches a glimpse of himself in the mirrorand his tattoos are missing.
Although they will never meet, their lives are more connected than either could possibly imagine.
