Half-Half is a story about a cleft lip and palate. By the time children with this affliction are old enough to understand stories, they should have already have been treated for it – but this doesn’t always happen. Sometimes the treatment or recovery for a cleft lip/palate takes time, or is only addressed in late childhood, making it a difficult and emotional experience for young patients. Half-Half explains that it is not just about bringing two halves together, but also about restoring self-confidence and self-belief.
