Netflix has just dropped a wild true story doc about triplets separated at birth

The three brothers were split up for a psychological experiment

Netflix has just dropped the incredible true story documentary “Three Identical Strangers” and it’s the most bizarre, heart breaking and shocking doc you’ll watch.

The documentary film explores the true story of a set of American triplets who were separated at birth for a psychological experiment.

The film was originally released in 2018 and if you haven’t seen it yet you are in for a wild discovery and will probably get pretty angry at what happens to these three men.

What is Three Identical Strangers on Netflix about?

Three Identical Strangers is about a set of American male triplets who were separated at birth. David Kellman, Eddy Galland, and Bobby Shafran were given up for adoption by their teenage birth mother and were then separated for a psychological experiment.

Each boy went to a different family from a varying background and the families were never told their son had two brothers.

When Bobby attended his first day of college he was greeted by everyone as Eddy. By pure coincidence they had both gone to the same university and eventually met up.

They were featured in a newspaper article and that’s when they discovered they had a third brother, after David’s mum saw their picture and realised her son looked exactly the same.

The triplets became great friends and the documentary follows what happened to them after they met, including how they became media sensations and a detailed look into the experiment run by Dr. Peter Neubauer who separated many twins and triplets for a nature vs nurture study. The results of the study have never been published.
