Trishna & Krishna are two Bangladeshi twins, who captured headlines and hearts in Australia with their moving story. Conjoined at the head, they were abandoned by their birth mother and left at a Bangladesh orphanage, where there was little hope for their survival. Brought to Australia by Moira Kelly, executive director of the Children First Foundation, their journey towards separation via surgery became a national concern. This documentary follows the twins as they live in their conjoined state, highlighting the efforts of those who were fighting on their behalf, including the medical staff behind the successful 32-hour operation that liberated them.
