Presentation:

In a world where blood ties are both sacred and poisoned, one woman's homecoming unravels a tangled web of secrets, lies, and unthinkable betrayals… Eurochannel premieres Duplicity.

From the opening scene, Duplicity grips you tightly and refuses to let go. We're introduced to Alice Minville, a nurse in the remote reaches of Canada, whose world is shattered when she receives news of her mother's tragic death. But what follows is a descent into a rabbit hole of confusion and disbelief as Alice discovers that her supposedly deceased father is very much alive, and a stranger is masquerading as her long-lost sister.

But it's not just Alice who captivates audiences; every character in Duplicity is a puzzle waiting to be solved. From Alexandre Caussey, the enigmatic father with a dark past, to Juliette Legrand, the cunning impostor with vengeance on her mind, each member of the ensemble cast adds another layer to the film's intricate tapestry of deceit. As the layers of deceit unfold, Alice finds herself entangled in a twisted game of cat-and-mouse, where nothing is as it seems. Juliette's motives are shrouded in darkness, and her true identity remains elusive, leaving Alice grasping for answers and questioning her own sanity.

The film's intricate plot weaves together past and present, skillfully unveiling the haunting secrets that have plagued Alice's family for decades. From the ashes of a tragic fire that claimed the life of a neighbor to the torrid affair that tore her parents apart, each revelation adds depth and complexity to the narrative, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats.

As the tension mounts, Alice's quest for the truth takes a dark turn, leading her down a treacherous path of lies, betrayal, and even murder. With the stakes escalating, she finds herself entangled in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with Juliette, whose motives become increasingly sinister and unpredictable.

Amidst the chaos, the film explores the profound themes of identity, family bonds, and the lengths one will go to uncover the truth. Alice's unwavering determination to unravel the tangled web of deception is both admirable and unsettling, as she navigates a world where trust is a fragile commodity.

As the climax approaches, Duplicity delivers a series of gut-wrenching twists and turns that will challenge your perceptions and leave you questioning everything you thought you knew. Just when you think you've unraveled the mystery, the film throws another curveball, keeping you guessing until the very end.
