Sebastián is a psychologist, a frustrated singer-songwriter and also has a natural talent for imitating Luis Miguel. After being fired from his job, he decides to try his luck imitating the Mexican star and his life takes an unexpected turn, gaining unexpected popularity. But the difficulty of reconciling this new facet with his vocation as a psychologist and his aspirations as a singer-songwriter, the increasing pressures and demands of his manager, the doubts that plague him and the confusion of having to alternate being oneself with being and imitating someone else turn what at first seemed like a game into a reality that is difficult to cope with.
