Three strangers are reunited by astonishing coincidence after being born identical triplets, separated at birth, and adopted by three different families. Their jaw-dropping, feel-good story instantly becomes a global sensation complete with fame and celebrity, but the fairy tale reunion triggers a series of events that unearth an sinistre agenda with wide reprecussions. 

This film is leading the amazing box office success of documentaries this year.  Athough not a new story - a book was written about the triplets - it's a subject that got UK film maker Tim Wardle 'out of bed at 3am to go film somewhere'. It's an utterly compelling play-in-3-acts, using the triplets' testimony, recreated scenes and the copious media coverage from the '80s to tell the story of their shocking reunion and then their mutual self-discovery as the world was gobbling up all that could be read about the personable young men. The shocking third act takes the story into a different, occasionally alarming, realm.  See the film and be amazed, heartened - and enraged - by turn.
