******SPOILERS****** After running into traffic to save her eight year-old daughter Emma, Lauren Dieweld, from getting run over by a truck Joanna Burke, Sherilyn Fenn, finds herself in a hospital bed without as much, after getting hit head on by a runaway truck, as a scratch on her. What Joanna also finds out is that she's in fact not Joanna Burke but someone named Sarah Randolph!

Everything goes straight to pot for Joanna from that point on in the movie with her having to ask questions of those who know her as Sarah Randolph to find out just who she is! Joanna/Sarah's sister Penny, Rena Sofer, who comes to see her in the hospital acts so weird and strange in her answering Joanna's inquiries about her other self, Sarah Randolph, that it starts to dawn on her that she, or Sarah, is some kind of unstable and dangerous psycho.

Joanna later finds out, after getting her sister Penny to finally open up, that she had a young son Eric who was found murdered in the woods outside of town a year ago! This explains why this creepy looking guy, Steve Harris, is always stalking her all throughout the movie! This scary looking weirdo just happens to be Detective Miller who was on the case of her son's murder and is certain that Sarah/Joanna murdered him! Just going through the motions and playing things by ear Joanna slowly finds out that her other self Sarah not only possibly murdered her son Eric but was also having and adulterous affair with her co-worker's, at a P.R firm that she works at, wife Alice!

The movie "Nightmare Street" never quite explains how Joanna got herself into the strange and out of worldly predicament that she finds herself in. Were, like Joanna, given to understand that there's parallel universe's were we all have twins or doubles that sometimes in an act of sudden terror, like getting hit by a truck, can open up a porthole in time and space and push us into them. Joanna for her part, after getting her head back together, never doubts that she somehow entered another woman's mind and body. For the reminder of the movie Joanna tries to get back to the world that she was suddenly taken from away from her friends and family and especially her eight year old daughter Emma. It's Joanna's doctor who treated her at the hospital, Dr. Matt Westbrook (Thomas Gibson), who after thinking that she's suffering from psychological delusions finally came to the conclusion that what happened to her, in her time/space experience, may very well be true and tried to do something about it.

****MAJOR SPOILER**** Not only falling in love with his patient Joanna Dr. Westbrook tries to somehow have, after reading a slew of books about the subject, her deported back to where she came from not quite realizing that he, like Joanna, has a double or twin on the other side. Joanna later finds out that at the town's Pledger Park there's going to be a carousel ride at noon which was exactly what were the circumstances that had her get run down, in trying to save Emma, and put her in the parallel universe that she find herself in now! Sensing that this may well be the porthole that she's looking for to bring her back to reality Joanna plans to be there after, on video tape, confessing her crime as Sarah Randolph in the murder of her son Eric.

It's now a race against time with Joanna trying to get to the park and get transported back to the reality that she came from before the police, who were tipped off by her confession video tape, headed by a determined Det. Miller get there first! If successful the police will not only prevent Joanna from crossing back into her own universal reality but put her as Sarah Randolph behind bars, in the universe that she's in now, for the rest of her life!
