In 1975, the infants Tommaso and Daniele are born in a Sicilian clinic, and are placed in cots 7 and 8. But the nurse who places them, reverses the order, generating a great confusion! Tommaso and Daniele are now two young people doing different jobs: the first is a bumbling criminal, the other a young man who studies law, well integrated into civil society, and the two do not know at all. One day, when Tommaso must save himself from a fraud he just made, clashes with Daniele, and slowly the two discover the misunderstanding that has changed them since the day of his birth!
