The captivating true story of identical twins June and Jennifer Gibbons, born to Caribbean parents and raised in Wales. As they grew older, the girls ceased speaking to anyone but each other. Educational and care institutions failed them time and time again, and despite clear artistic talent flourishing in their insular world, the two young women ended up incarcerated in Broadmoor.
A disturbing picture of two deeply misunderstood people, with knockout performances from Letitia Wright and Tamara Lawrance..
