This film reveals the incredible story of Bobby Shafran, Eddy Galland, and David Kellman. When they were teenagers, a chance encounter led the three young men to discover that they were triplets. They grew up in separate families within hours of each other, never knowing the others existed. Sharing this undeniable bond, they become fast friends and embark on living their lives together: They move into an apartment, appear on television programs, and eventually open a popular restaurant. But as time goes by, they discover that the roots of their separation are more sinister than they could have imagined. Three Identical Strangers combines home movies, footage of television appearances, interviews with family members, and stunning reenactments to recount this stranger-than-fiction story that evolves into a poignant exploration of nature versus nurture. Alongside their profound connection, there was a darker side to their love for one another, and a lingering pain from having been apart.
