Conjoined Twins

Conjoined Twins

A young mother is confronted by the challenge of raising twin daughters who are connected at the head.

Viewers are taken into a life they may well never imagine: What is it like to raise twins conjoined at the head? Young mother Felicia Simms is committed to face whatever happens. This integration of the Toronto Globe and Mail’s written newspaper stories, video, still photography and an illustration of the ways twins can be born conjoined, gets deeply into this subject matter. The result is a highly informative project. When leaving this story, visitors can’t help but wonder what happens next to the twins.
