Felipe is an actor who when about to start being recognized, is part of a situation that from now on will label him as a jinx by his own mates and he’s fired from the cast. His life turns into a catastrophe and he’ll continually be aiming at getting rid of this stigma. At the same time, his half-brother Guillermo is fired from work and dumped by his girlfriend. Both half-brothers are very different and have been apart for years. The only thing they have in common is their father, who gets to reunite them as he only has few days to live, and makes a very strange request to them.
