In The Swap,Â Ellie Oâ€™Brien (PeytonÂ List) is trying to juggle rhythmic gymnastics and troubles with her best friend.Â Meanwhile, classmate Jack Malloy (JacobÂ Bertrand) is struggling to live up to his brothersâ€™ hockey-star legacies and his dadâ€™s high expectations and tough-love approach. When a text argument about whose life is easier gets out of hand, Ellie and Jack trigger an unexplainable real-life swap. As each tries to navigate the otherâ€™s life, hilarity ensues when Ellie (as Jack) learns about brotherly bonding and hockey lingo, while Jack (as Ellie) has to decipher girl code and experiences a spa day. With a rhythmic gymnastics championshipÂ and a spot on the varsity hockey team on the line, they must figure out how to get back in their own bodies before the swap becomes permanent. As they are forced to literally walk in each otherâ€™s shoes, they gain empathy for one another and learn valuable lessons about their own lives.
