What happened?



Are you okay?!

How are you?


Same as yesterday.

I want to go with Chava.

No, son, you're just

getting better.

-Stay here and rest.

-No, I'm fine now.

I want to go with Chava,

he can tell me what happened.

I just took my temperature,

I took the pill...

...and applied a cold compress.

I'll be with Chava,

if I feel sick, I'll come back.



Are you okay?!


What's wrong?!

I had to carry you

to your house...

...because you were

passed out.

I called the doctor.

When I came back,

I tried to go in...

...but I was really scared.

Your mom told me

you were okay.

What did the doctor say?

Open it.

-What is this?

-This is me.

Until yesterday,

I was this guy.

His name is Mateo.

I don't know why,

but I'm here now.

You were this guy?

This woman here,

she was my wife.

You dog!

Is that good or bad?

You are so stupid!

I was Mateo.

Now I'm Mateo and Hugo.

Where's Hugo?

I mean, the other one.

My friend who sat down

and talked to me daily.

I don't know where

he is right now.

I don't know anything

about Mateo either.

-You're joking, right?

-Of course not.

How can this be?

Did you change bodies?

Did you tell your mom?

What did she say?

I did tell her.

That's why I came,

she didn't believe me.

Come on,

how can she believe you?

How would it be to have

a little freak like you?

That sucks.

Give me that.

I'm going to get us

a drink.


open your present.

Let me give him his bottle.

-When was your birthday?

-The day before yesterday.

-I turned 35.

-Congratulations, man!

You deserve

a little respect.

I have to give it back

to my uncle later.


Here's the Cibeles fountain...

...where I passed out.



I stayed at a hotel last night,

I hardly slept.

Mom, please,

don't tell anyone.

What don't you

want me to tell?

I don't understand

what's happening to you.

It's not my fault.

Really, I was 35 years old,

I was married...

...I had a daughter and

I didn't know Zacatecas.

I can get a map

and show you...

...where my house was

in Mexico City...

...and the fountain

where I fainted.

I don't understand

what's happening to me either.

Don't worry,

I know what I know...

...but I'll try

to take it easy.

What will you tell Amelia?

You're eight!

Sure you can't wait for me

until the weekend?

I'm sure.

I'm off. Stay until I leave... case something happens.

I want to go alone.

Hugo, if you need anything

just call me.

I'll go get you.

Tell my mom I'll be okay.

See you.

I'm glad you stopped by,


-I was going to eat alone.

-I didn't want to bother you.

It's no bother.

I've had too much food

left over...

...I'm not used

to cooking for myself.

Oh, Isabel, I'm so sorry

about Aunt Chela's death.

You'll think I'm cheeky.

I just came to give

my condolences...

...and now I'm staying

for lunch.

I started selling medicine

to little-town pharmacies.

I hope I survive.

So, why did you leave

the bank?

I didn't leave.

I was fired.

Truth is,

I was going to quit.

I found out I was going

to get fired..., I decided to wait

for the severance pay...

...though it isn't a lot...

...for a wife and two kids.

Three months later,

it's practically gone.

That's why

I'm selling medicines.

Why did they fire you?

One day, these guys

came into the bank...

...and said:
''Good day,

this is a robbery.''

No one is that polite

when they rob!

I don't know

but my boss heard me...

...talking to the robbers,
