Walter Ego

A comedy in which a millionaire playboy with only weeks to live attempts to date two vastly different women at the same time. By taking on two alter egos, he tries to play the part of their ideal man. Things get complicated when he accidentally invites both girls to his house on the same night!

Walter Emerson, a rich young man with a number of illnesses, is on the verge of death. He wishes to find love one last time before he passes, in the hopes of finding someone to leave his vast fortune to. An old friend points him to internet dating. With the help of his ex-lover, her new boyfriend and his own private physician, Walter ends up dating two completely different girls at once. As he attempts to take on two very different personas, in order to impress these vastly different girls, his deteriorating memory throws a few challenges at him. None more challenging than him accidentally arranging for both girls to spend the evening at his mansion on the same day.
