Sebastián is a psychologist, a frustrated singer-songwriter, and has a natural talent for imitating the Mexican singer Luis Miguel. After being fired from his job, he decides to try his luck impersonating the music superstar. His life takes an unexpected turn as he gains an unforeseen popularity, but the difficulty in reconciling this new facet with his vocation as a psychologist and his aspirations as a singer-songwriter, the growing pressures and demands from his manager, and the doubts and confusion of alternating being oneself with imitating another, turn it into a reality that may be too difficult to bear.

ESPAÑOL

Sebastián es psicólogo, cantautor frustrado, y tiene un talento natural para imitar a Luis Miguel. Al ser despedido de su trabajo decide probar suerte imitando al astro mexicano. Su vida pega un vuelco inesperado al ganar una popularidad imprevista, pero la dificultad para conciliar esta nueva faceta con su vocación de psicólogo y sus aspiraciones de cantautor, las crecientes presiones de su manager, y las dudas y confusión de alternar ser uno mismo con imitar a otro, hacen que se vuelva en una realidad difícil de sobrellevar.
