When a reclusive mother-to-be finds an odd key that magically opens a portal through her hallway door, her husband goes snooping inside and never returns. Beset with loneliness, she gathers her courage and ventures beyond the door where she finds a parallel universe complete with doppelgängers of herself and her husband. In a desperate move, she kills her doppelgänger and takes her place, hoping to live out the rest of her days incognito with the husband, but soon finds herself playing a life-or-death game when another doppelgänger enters the door with similar plans.
