The award-winning documentary

In this heartwarming documentary, identical twins Mia and Alexandra were found as babies in a cardbox in China in 2003. They were separated and put up for adoption to two families from opposite corners of the world: One of them from a small village in Norway, surrounded by high mountains and deep fjords, and the other from the major American city of Sacramento, California.


The twins are reunited by destiny when, incredibly, their adoptive mothers brought identical red gingham dresses for them to wear on adoption day. This startling coincidence made the mothers take note of each other and start talking. That’s when they noticed that the girls looked very much alike... but the orphanage denied that the girls were related.


Six months later, established a world apart, truth has its day when DNA tests confirm that the girls are identical twins.

A true story of inspiration, Twin Sisters follows Mia and Alexandra through an uplifting parallel journey until they reunite in Norway when they are 8 years old. This is one of those feel-good stories that will make you cry, laugh, and think about the people you miss in your life. Among the top documentaries in the world, this award-winning film has been seen by an estimated 20 million people so far, and broadcast by 30 TV channels around the world.
