Wide-eyed girl Naomi Watts arrives in Hollywood in search of stardom. She stays in a luxury bungalow owned by an out-of-town aunt, only to find a strange woman in the shower who turns out to be an accident victim with a case of amnesia. She helps her track down her identity, falling in love with her in the process, and eventually even switching personalities. Their fate intertwines with a director having trouble casting his new film. A return to form for Lynch after a decade of trying to regain his Twin Peaks glory.
