Daisy and Violet are the star attraction in a carnival sideshow – singing Siamese twins – with opposing dreams: Daisy seeks a life in the spotlight and Violet wants to settle down in a home with a husband. When musician Buddy and talent scout Terry enter their lives and promise to take them to the top of the entertainment scene, their lives change forever and they struggle to balance their individual dreams with their inescapable physical connection.
