Louis Winthorpe is a well-off businessman who works for a commodities brokerage firm and bickers with his bosses about whether it’s a person’s environment or heredity that determines how well he or she does in life. When Winthorpe bumps into Billy Ray Valentine, a street hustler, he assumes the latter is trying to rob him and has him arrested. Upon seeing how different the two men are, Winthorpe’s bosses at the firm decide to make a wager about what would happen if Winthorpe was stripped of his job, home, and social life while Valentine was given Winthorpe’s job. Winthorpe and Valentine effectively trade places and hilarity ensues when each tries to adhere to the other’s lifestyle.
