Allison Jones (Bridget Fonda) is a successful software designer working in bustling Manhattan, along with her successful career, she lives in a very trendy apartment and has a handsome boyfriend Sam (Steven Weber). But when she finds out that Sam has been cheating on her, she has no option but to start out on her own. Determined not to lose her trendy apartment, she advertises in the classifieds for a roommate to share paying the rent. After numerous failed interviews, she finally comes across Hedra Carlson (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a quiet, sweet girl who, compared to all the other potential roommates, seemed quite normal. At first everything seems to be running smoothly, with the self-centred Allison enjoying Hedra's company and her constant willingness to please. But things start to turn strange when Hedra begins copying Allison, her hair style, the clothes she wears and even the way she acts. When Allison decides to give her ex boyfriend, Sam, another chance and asks him to move in, she asks Hedra to look for new accommodation, unleashing a very weird and psychotic side to her roommate.
