Synopsis: My Life As A Dead Girl On Lifetime
When teen runaway, Chelsea, arrives on her Aunt Kim’s doorstep years after she left her family and began living on the street, Kim feels tremendous remorse for not stepping up to raise Chelsea as her own child after Chelsea’s mother died.
Ridden with guilt, Kim makes up for lost time by trying to do whatever it takes to provide for Chelsea and finally giving her a stable life. One of the first steps she takes is to enroll Chelsea into the local high school. What Kim and her husband don’t know is that the young girl in their home is really a prostitute named Brittany who has stolen Chelsea’s identity after she was accidentally killed by Brittany’s pimp, Oscar Jackson.
Brittany has fed this unsuspecting family full of lies about her brutal life on the streets in an effort to convince the caring couple to adopt her. But, Brittany’s plan to pass herself off as a teenage Chelsea begins to backfire after the high school is unable to obtain her previous records. Not only that, but Brittany doesn’t fit in at the school, and her new life as Chelsea begins to unravel after her former pimp, Oscar, comes after her. By now, Kim’s husband knows that something is up and tries to convince Kim that the person identifying herself as Chelsea isn’t who she seems. All of Brittany’s secrets are about to come tumbling out after the police investigation into Brittany’s death is linked back to her.
