This is the story of Flo and Kay. They are the world’s only female autistic savant twins. What is savantism? It is a rare condition in which sufferers of development disorders, most notably autism, are capable of acts of genius that far outstrip their expected levels of ability.

In this case, the two girls have extraordinary memories for facts and dates. For example, they can compute the day of the week for any date, be it past or future.

They can also remember what the weather was like and even their breakfast for any given day of their life. These two girls try to create order as much as possible.

They are no in their 50s. This documentary shows their life, how they interact, and their body language observed by a psychologist.
