Advised by his doctor to become more sociable, Golyadkin, a low-level bureaucrat, arrives uninvited at a birthday party his office manager is having for his daughter. After a number of socially awkward and increasingly uncomfortable moments, Golyadkin is asked to leave and flees the party. While making his way home through a snowstorm, an extraordinary thing happens: Golyadkin meets his double. At first the two are friendly, but it quickly becomes apparent to Golyadkin that the double intends to take over his life, and the success that the double makes of Golyadkin's life may be driving the original to the edge of sanity. The Double was adapted for film in 2014, and starred Jesse Eisenberg of The Social Network.
