THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS is a documentary on identical triplets reunited at age 19 and the dark secret behind their initial separation.
“New York, 1980: Three complete strangers — Bobby Shafran, Eddy Galland, and David Kellman — make the astounding discovery that they are identical triplets. Separated at birth, adopted, and raised by three different families, the 19-year-olds are reunited by chance.
Their story sets the tabloids on fire, and the triplets suddenly become famous around the world. The brothers forge a relationship and become fast friends. They move in together in a swinging bachelor pad and open a restaurant that skyrockets to success. The toast of Manhattan, the triplets are living the high life. But their fairy-tale reunion sets off a chain of events that ultimately unearths an extraordinary and sinister secret that could answer controversial questions at the heart of human behaviour.” (Sundance Film Festival).
Directed by Tim Wardle (‘One Killer Punch’, ‘Lifers: Channel 4 Cutting Edge’)
