‘Three Identical Strangers’
A student arrives for his first day at a new College and is astounded at the warmth of the welcome hugs, kisses and endearments he receives from complete strangers. When he meets his new room mate and receives a similar welcome he realises something everyone is confusing him for someone else. A few enquiries ensue and he is stunned to find he has an identical twin he never knew anything about. When this extraordinary occurrence receives national attention the 'twins' are further astounded to discover a third identical sibling. All three were adopted as babies to separate families.
This story seems fanciful yet this really happened. What is more this documentary about the triplets reveals extraordinary and troubling circumstances to their adoption and childhoods.
'Three Identical Strangers' is a fascinating, humorous and troubling documentary.
