The Replacement

A woman about to begin her maternity leave from work begins to suspect that her replacement is plotting to take over her life.

When Ellen, a successful architect in her mid-thirties, becomes pregnant, she finds maternity cover in Paula; brilliant and enthusiastic. Ellen champions her, but quickly begins to feel uneasy, as she is convinced something is not right about Paula. Are her suspicions simply a result of female rivalry and her own insecurity or do they speak to something deeper? This psychological thriller examines workplace rivalry, motherhood and the issues that arise from making ‘the right choice.’
