“As spellbinding as a great psychological thriller.” – Seattle Times
In 1980, through a series of coincidences, two complete strangers—19-year-olds Robert Shafran and Edward Galland — made the astonishing discovery that they were identical twins. They had been separated at birth, adopted and raised by different families. Even more incredibly, when their story ran in the New York Post, another 19-year-old, David Kellman, realised he was their triplet, adopted to yet another family. After an overwhelmingly joyful reunion, they became an instant media sensation, but the brothers’ discovery set in motion a chain of events that, decades later, unearthed an extraordinary and disturbing secret. This entertaining film is both fascinating and shocking as an exuberant celebration of family transforms into a thriller with colossal implications and proof that life truly is stranger than fiction.
