I remember hearing about this story on the news a few years ago. I mentioned in my review of My Beautiful Broken Brain that I'm not a big documentary watcher, so it took me a good few months before I actually got round to watching this.

I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary. It's such a crazy story, you would never think that something like this could happen.

I'm sure we've all heard stories about siblings separated at birth, but I for one have never heard of twins being separated at birth, not only that but then to discover them via YouTube is absolutely crazy.

I love that you can instantly see a connection between the two before they even have DNA proof that they are indeed twins.
I love how both their families seem to instantly accept and embrace the other twin, no questions asked. Not only have they gained a sister but they have also gained brothers, parents and grandparents.

I think this documentary is extremely well made, so much so it makes me want to see what happens in their lives next.

Rating: 8/10
