The story of the Johnstone twins who were separated at birth. One given away to be brought up by an upper class family. Giving him the life his twin would never have. Their paths keep crossing and everything is done to keep them apart.
We are shown them dead at the very start of the show, so we know it is not going to be a nice happy ended. The first act really was lighthearted in the places and had some very funny moments when the boys were young. The second act is very different and takes some very emotional turns.
