Best friends Maureen and Bridget, often referred to as twins or look-alikes, drive to cheerleading practice when Maureen accidentally slides on the icy roads, crosses the dividing line and hits an 18-wheeler. Rushed to the hospital, Maureen dies while disfigured Bridget lies in a coma. One family grieves and prepares a funeral for Maureen while the other readies mentally, physically and financially for the months of therapy that lie ahead. While the families make their preparations, a dental surgeon checks various records and discovers that a terrible mistake has been made--the teens have been misidentified.
