Pobre Rico[1] (International Title: The Switch) is a 2012 Chilean telenovela produced and broadcast by TVN.[2]


Freddy Perez (Simón Pesutic) and Nicolas Cotapos (Alonso Quintero) lead a normal life until now. The two boys are happy and comfortable in each of their worlds. While Freddy lives with his mother Eloisa (Carolina Arregui) and sister Megan (Teresita Commentz) in scarce economic conditions in Cerro Navia, Santiago, Nicolas is torn between the wealth and glamor of belonging to one of the richest and most powerful families in Chile. But one day they experience a radical change and face the news that will mark their lives: 17 years ago the babies of both families were switched at birth in a cold southern hospital.

When the families discover this error, it quickly becomes national news because of the fame of the powerful Cotapos family. The decision of what to do is settled in court. A court decision forces both teenagers to live for a year with their biological families. When they turn 18 they may decide for themselves who they would like to live with.
