This is one of Plautus most successful comedies. Two brothers are separated as children. One of them, Marco Segundo, is determined to find his brother Marco Primero. After searching for him for years he has almost nothing left of his fortune. He finally arrives in Emerita, the city where his brother resides. It is precisely the confusion caused by the extraordinary resemblance of the two brothers that is the catalyst for what takes place. What ensues, sprinkled with lots of comedy, allows the classic master of laughter to serve us a hilarious story about the comedy of misunderstandings.
