About the Film
In 1980, a complete coincidence brought together identical strangers Bobby Shafran and Eddy Galland, 19-year-olds who realized they were separated at birth. The subsequent press coverage led to the startling discovery of a third young man, David Kellman. They were identical triplets, each adopted by a different family! Instant media sensations, the trio charmed the public with their uncanny similarities. But, as revealed in this gripping Sundance award-winning film, how and why they were separated is a much larger—and more disturbing—story.
