In the new film Shadows of Love, there's double trouble as two women - who are polar opposites but look identical - find themselves in a love triangle.

Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung Pak-chi plays Paris, a demanding daughter of the head of KNC corporation. She looks exactly the same as Qin Xin (also played by Cheung), the girl-next-door florist.

When Paris goes missing, her boyfriend Quan (South Korea's Kwon Sang-woo) - the CEO of her father's company - goes looking for her. When he sees Qin, he thinks he's found Paris.

With KNC in danger of changing hands, he offers Qin the chance to play Paris for a few weeks until the real girl is found. Qin accepts and no-one realises she's a fake. Soon, Qin and Quan fall in love.

Out of nowhere, the real Paris reappears. She wants her identity, life and boyfriend back.

Now Quan has to choose between two women who look alike but have vastly different characters. Who will he pick?

A multinational cast, some from mainland China and Taiwan, are caught in the mix-up.
