Synopsis:

Rhoda Williams is driving after drinking at a congratulatory party when she sees a planet and leans out for a closer look. She hits a minivan and kills all the members of a family except the father. She is imprisoned for four years, and upon release seeks out the widower, John Burroughs. Burroughs does not know Rhoda's name or what she looks like.  Rhoda intends to apologize for what happened, but ends up being hired by Burroughs as an assistant, slowly getting to know Burroughs and falling in love with him. The planet she saw is discovered to be a mirror planet of Earth, and an essay contest is launched where the winner will be a passenger on a space shuttle to visit "Earth 2". Williams considers entering the contest to find out what kind of life her mirror self would have led, and if she can somehow undo the past.
