Holly and Carly: Siamese Twins
Jill Reich came round from her caesarean to find her worst fears confirmed: she had given birth to Siamese twins. Holly and Carly were born facing each other, joined from breastbone to navel.
Siamese twins are rare; even rarer is a successful separation. But without it, Holly and Carly would have certainly died.
Two days later, the cameras were there as the surgeons struggled for more than eight hours to separate the two tiny bodies.
This film is a unique record of that operation, and of the fight for the twins' survival in the year that has followed. It is also the story of a remarkable mother who had no idea whether either of her new daughters would ever pull through. Film editor STEPHEN BOTTOMORE
