In Daughter From Another Mother, a Mexican series that debuted in January on Netflix, two babies from disparate families get switched at birth. It’s a made-for-Telenovela mistake that incites a perfect storm of tragicomedy, and the show uses it to explore the meaning of motherhood.

The switch-up thrusts into each other’s lives Mariana (Paulina Goto), a 23-year-old free spirit, and Ana (Ludwika Paleta), a wealthy workaholic with a penchant for rules. As the plot unfolds, a complex web of relationships brings their two worlds crashing together. Through eight funny and poignant episodes, the first season of Daughter From Another Mother redefines family like few shows have before.
