Switched at Birth is an American family drama. It tells the life of two teenage girls who were accidentally given to the wrong parents at birth and grew up with each other’s families. Bay Kennish lives in a rich Kansas City suburb with her parents and brother, but should have grown up in a poor neighbourhood, which is where Daphne Vasquez lives with her single mother and grandmother. Both families have to come together, get to know each other and learn to live with this difficult situation.
