Set in the 1980s, Three Identical Strangers chronicles the story of three men who were reunited through a series of astonishing coincidences after being born identical triplets, separated at birth, and adopted by three different families. The tabloid-friendly feel-good story quickly became a global sensation, complete with fame and celebrity, but the fairy-tale reunion eventually gave way to darker currents. As the brothers attempt to discover their true origins and the reason why they were separated, they uncover an unimaginable secret that will have radical repercussions for the three of them as well as for wider society. Combining interviews, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions, the film takes us as close to the brother’s experience as possible, giving an intimate account of an unsettling chapter in American history.
