This movie goes back and forth between these two different lives she could be living. One moves on and finds a new love....the other gets a second job to help support the loser boyfriend.
This continues until one night, Helen in both lives ends up in the hospital.
One of her parallel lives dies. The other Helen that lives seems to have some kind of memory of things that happened to her parallel self.
