Explores hapless Golyadkin’s world as it is thrown into turmoil when a man appears in his town who is his double in every respect except by blood. Set in 1848 Russia, the arrival of this man in St. Petersburg turns Golyadkin’s life upside down, threatening his job, home and even his sanity. The battle for survival begins in a time of political unrest where no one is to be trusted, not even your own reflection.
