Daisy (Jamie Lee Curtis) is a psychiatrist and a single mother, raising her daughter Anna (Lindsay Lohan) and her youngest son by herself. But the relationship between Daisy and Anna has always been bad, and both of them can’t understand each other’s behavior. On this day they quarreled again: about the remarriage of Anna’s band and their mother, saying that if it was the other party, things would have a good result. Unexpectedly, they switched identities after reading a note from a strange old woman. In panic, they had to accept the facts and cooperate with each other to do their own things well. What they experienced during this period allowed the mother and daughter to realize their respective lives and understand their respective feelings. But Daisy’s wedding is about to take place, and her identity cannot be changed back…
