Doppelgänger On Assignment

An accomplished international spy discovers that their next assignment is to impersonate an ordinary civilian who happens to be their exact double.

This prompt plays with themes of identity, authenticity, and ethics. The spy is used to wearing a mask, but never one so eerily identical to their own face. Logically, the civilian and the spy are completely different, yet they are identical in appearance. The spy is tasked to carry out this mission without arousing any suspicion, but as they get to know the civilian’s life, they start questioning their own life choices.
