Three Identical Strangers: A 19-year-old Westchester County Community College student in 1980 is mistaken for another student and the resemblance is so uncanny that it leads to the astonishing discovery of a twin, his doppelganger. Publicity about the event leads to a third startling discovery: There are three - triplets so identical that they walk, talk, sound alike and even have the same tastes and smoking habits. Separated at birth, they have been raised in different New York families.  This documentary records their amazement and delight in this reunion which leads to fame and spectacle and tabloid fever. However, as the story continues, it becomes darker and stranger, with twists and turns, and explorations of identity that …..well, you must see it for yourself to find out what comes next.            603-539-5176
