Italian Spotlight- Wife and Husband

A neurosurgeon and an ambitious television host find their marriage crumbling, grasping at straws to stay together. But after an incredible experiment switches their bodies, they’re in for more than they bargained for. Now they must see things from their spouse’s point of view and live out their days in the other’s shoes, quite literally. While trying to switch back, they find the reasons that have led to their mediocre love life, and try to fall in love again.
