The old question of nature vs. nurture gets a distinctly contemporary twist in this stirring family drama surrounding two ten-year-old boys, Diego and Fernando, accidentally switched at birth. The truth comes to light when failing Diego needs a kidney transplant, and his wealthy parents go in search of his birth mother. Attempted friendship between the mothers devolves into a bitter court battle in which each side comes to regret what they wished for. Never less than entertaining, this heart-warming story is rife with dramatic turns and heart-stopping crises before diverging roads meet. In Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
