Meant to be your Mife

Sarah is preparing her husband’s promotion dinner party alone, waiting for her husband and his friends to arrive. Suddenly Sarah receives a huge delivery. It is a mannequin. She is confused, calling her husband to check, but gets nothing. So Sarah places the mannequin next to the mirror and dresses the mannequin up. But the mannequin is imitating Sarah, replacing Sarah… At the dinner party, everyone is praising Sarah's husband for having a decent wife. This time it is a mannequin that is standing beside, but no one notices anything unusual.
