Liv is up for a big sci-fi movie role, and Maddie has to retake her driver’s test. Liv is having a little trouble with how she could get the lead in the movie, but when she sees that Maddie is a sci-fi geek, she asks her sister for help. Maddie wants to help, but her test is on the day of Liv's autograph-signing. That's when they decide to have a switch-a-rooney and masquerade as each other. There's just one big problem: Maddie can't see without her glasses, and Liv can't see with glasses.
