The swap is a comedy, a movie where we talk about what we want to be and what we really are.
The film shows the journey of an individual who starts up being God and ends up being nobody. But in the discovery of the "nobody", he discovers himself.
It is a film with which we pretend to amuse ourselves based on a solid argument, dialogues, situations and interpretations of the cast.
