Opening narration


Martin Donner (Frank Whaley) is a salesman at a big-box store who has a miserable family life: his two children behave like complete brats, and his wife is often hostile and frustrated. Martin's only consolation is his computer time, where one day, he finds an advertisement for a corporation with the name "Future Trade". After talking to a sales representative (Dean Winters) he subscribes and discovers that he can exchange his future with that of another. After undergoing the process, Martin finds he is now Jack, a successful CEO with a beautiful trophy wife Francesca (Sofia Milos). Wondering why Jack would be willing to trade his life with Martin's, he returns to his old home and sees that another man (whose face is hidden) is at his home. Martin eventually discovers that Francesca is having an affair and that Jack had cheated on her. His wife poisons him with curare, causing him to become paralyzed. Her lover arrives and dumps him face-down in the pool, where he drowns.
