In February 2013, Anaïs Bordier, a French fashion student living in London, stumbled upon a YouTube video featuring Samantha Futerman, an actress in Los Angeles, and was struck by their uncanny resemblance. After discovering they were born on the same day in Busan, South Korea, and both put up for adoption, Anaïs reaches out to Samantha via Facebook. “Twinsters” documents Samantha and Anaïs’ journey into sisterhood, witnessing everything from their first meeting, to their first trip back to Korea. Affectionate and thoroughly moving, this is an incredible story that would have been impossible just 10 years ago without YouTube and Facebook.
