Identity Kills

Karen is a weak personality, mercilessly taken advantage of by her boyfriend Ben. But when it comes to breaking free from the shackles that bind her, Karen lacks something more than just courage-viable alternatives. Here chance plays to her advantage: Karen is mistaken for another woman, Fanny, who has applied for a resort job in the Dominican Republic. And the mix up endures – until Karen comes up with the idea of impersonating the personnel director of the vacation company and thereby not simply tricking Fanny, but rather ultimately killing her, in order to be able to maintain the fiction of her assumed identity
