Daisy and Viola are teenage Siamese twin sisters blessed with beautiful voices. Their father exploits their performances at weddings and religious ceremonies to make money. When a doctor claims that he can separate them, the twins face an emotional decision.

Grounded in modern-day Italy, but also evoking a whimsical nostalgia reminiscent of Federico Fellini's universe, INDIVISIBILI is a deeply moving portrait of conjoined twin sisters. Connected at the hip, Daisy and Viola often sing at local weddings and communions. Their father, a rather seedy small-time businessman, has turned them into an entertainment act in order to support the family and, ultimately, fill his own pockets. The two girls barely have a moment to breathe as they are run from engagement to engagement, until a chance meeting with a doctor reveals that, because they share no vital organs, they can be safely separated. The ensuing melodrama is twofold. The twins each have somewhat different views on what this radical step could mean. Their father, meanwhile, is apoplectic when confronted with the possibility of no longer being able to cash in on his daughters.
