This is the incredible true story of conjoined twins Trishna and Krishna and one woman’s crusade to save the children’s lives.
The desperately ill girls were found in a Bangladeshi orphanage by an aid worker and rushed to Australia by the Children First Foundation.
The twins were stabilised at Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital before the decision was made to attempt the separation.
With exclusive access, WTFN’s cameras follow every step of this extraordinary human and medical drama. We see Trishna’s and Krishna’s individual personalities emerge as outgoing, energetic and playful little girls.
Heart-warming scenes of birthday celebrations and developmental milestones balance the exhaustive cycle of surgery and recovery.
In 2011, the documentary was awarded the TV Week Logie for Most Outstanding Factual Program. It also won Best Music for a Documentary at the 2010 Australian Screen Music Awards.
First broadcast 7 February 2010.
