Summary: A story about choices and their effects.
This is a bizarre, yet fairly original film about a woman whose live-in boyfriend is cheating on her. She is having a bad day when suddenly the film splits in two, and we are treated to parallel lives, one where she misses the train, and one where she makes the train, and how this makes all the difference. In one life she's meeting a new boyfriend, dumping the old one, and in the other she's continuing on as before, unknowing of her boyfriend's deceit.

Summary: Every turn is a new life
Kind of chilling to know how a simple step or misstep turns you into a different person. The lead actress played an effective and believable dual role. I just thank goodness she went blond in one of her lives so I could keep track of it all. The end, though makes a statement about fate and that maybe sometimes not all of it is under our control.
