In this youth documentary (14′) we meet with Chenelva and Sheneeva, the conjoined twins who live in Amsterdam and are joined at the back of their heads. Despite their disability they hold a surprisingly positive view on life. There is, however, one thing that they struggle with: their mother won’t allow them to dress differently. This can be a real problem for two 15-year-old teenagers who are seeking their own identity. Will they succeed in persuading their mother to change her mind? Can the outside world overlook their disability and simply see them as two girls?
