Stunning Claudine and gloomy Pauline pretend to be one person so that Claudine can be famous, but just as things take off, Claudine commits suicide. Pauline hatches a new scheme, taking on her dead sister's identity, inhabiting her apartment, and reading her emails - slowly realizing the cost of femininity is to dazzle on the outside while rotting on the inside.
