This remarkable documentary traces the story of triplet boys separated at birth and placed for adoption with three different families. The Guardian says it is “A feel good news story from Reagan’s America that becomes something much darker and more complex.”  The film which has 96% rating on the Tomatometer explores the ups and downs of the three adoptees lives as they grow from young men into middle age.  The creator Tim Wardle also looks into the age old debate on nature versus nurture. As Nick LeSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle writes "We... come away with a deeper understanding of both the importance of nature and the awesome importance of loving, sensitive parenting."

PG 13 (suitable for 14+ years old)

David Sexton of London Evening Standard says “It combines interviews, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions to take us as close in to the story as possible, not coming to any conclusions. You won't be able to look away.
