Director Tim Wardle tells the story of three young men, Robert Shafran, Eddy Galland, and David Kellman who while in college, accidentally discover that they are triplets, separated at birth.

“Three Identical Strangers” won 10 awards including the BAFTA Film Award for Best Documentary, the Most Compelling Living Subject of a Documentary from the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards, and Best Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival.
