The comedy deals with the life of Andrés Ferreira and Brayan Galindo, from rich and poor families respectively. A mistake was made when they were born, because Andrés, originally of the poor family, was given to the rich family, and Brayan of the rich family went with the poor family. 30 years later the nurse who made the mistake reveals the truth to the families, and Brayan goes to live with the rich family, and Andres goes with the poor family.
The name of Brayan Galindo reflects an irregular adaptation of Brian to the Spanish, to the equal one of Rosmery (by anerior Rosemary). It reflects the fact that many Latin Americans adopt foreign names thinking that it is an indication of socioeconomic status.
The use of earpieces bluetooth in permanent form and cellular an intelligent Treo 650 by Andrés Ferreira tries to accentuate its characteristic Yuppies. Andrés is portrayed as a very arrogant person, who gives no vacations on Christmas to his employees and ignores his mother's advices. So his mother wants to give a lesson to Andrés by exchanging Brayan's and Andrés' roles. During this event Andrés falls in love with Rosmery while Brayan breaks his relationship with her because he has begun an affaire with María Fernanda, a super-model fortune-hunter who was Andrés' girlfriend.
The social consequences of massive dismissals of 200 employees as result of a reconstruction inserts a dramatic effect in the plot, and contribute to create a cold image of the enterprise world and Andrés Ferreira.
