The Girl with 8 Limbs

In the remote Indian village where she was raised people believe she’s a living God. Doctors, however, say that she carries a parasitic conjoined twin – a rare anomaly that could soon kill her. Her parents must make the life-changing decision whether to accept surgery to remove her extra limbs – or to leave her as she is, the representation of a Goddess. This film follows the family from their village to Bangalore, giving exclusive, behind the scenes access to her operation – and the media firestorm which turns Lakshmi into the most famous two year-old in the world.
