Indian twins Sohna and Mohna are celebrating their ninth birthday. To have reached this milestone is an extraordinary achievement as they have only one body but two separate heads. This remarkable film poses the question: How do you live a fulfilled life when you are two conscious beings in one body? Accepted by their local community, one can be asleep, while the other is awake; one twin cheats off the other at school; and each twin controls a different side of their body - so running is pretty amazing. But Sohna and Mohna are the lucky ones. Most babies born with this condition die shortly after birth.
