Written by Scott Brooks and directed by Sam Viverito, DupleX tells the story of Nick, a young man just "passing through" the real estate business by renting luxury apartments. One night Nick decides to "crash" in a furnished duplex he's been showing. There he meets a mysterious woman who seems to have gotten the same idea. Before they have a chance to compare notes, they witness the brutal murder of a diamond salesman who somehow let himself right into the apartment. While the smart thing to do would be to call the police, the two strangers become complicit in the deed after greed drives them to hide the body and keep the diamonds for themselves. Soon, Nick finds himself in a game of nerves with grifters, killers and cops, where his dream of easy money becomes a prayer to stay alive.
