    • Synopsis
    • July 2010, Montreal, Canada. Sophie Malaterre, a 25-year old fashion illustrator, has steeled herself for a lonely summer in the city. She has no plans, no close friends around and no boyfriend… that is, until she hears about an apartment-swapping site: switch.com. Sophie is in need of a change of scenery and decides to give it a try. After all, what does she have to lose?
      As luck would have it, she finds herself in a duplex in Paris, complete with a view of the Eiffel Tower. Paris is everything she has ever dreamed of and her first day there is idyllic.
      But, the next morning she meets with a rude awakening: as the police break down the apartment door, Sophie discovers she is sharing her apartment with a headless corpse. She has no way of proving that she is, in fact, not Bénédicte Serteaux, the owner of the premises. Sophie’s fingerprints are on the murder weapon… Bénédicte’s passport has Sophie’s photo in it. The walls close in.
      Sophie hasn’t only switched flats…
      She’s also switched identities…
