Thanks to social media, twins who grew up on different continents without knowing about one another get to meet each other again.
Anaïs grew up in Paris with her loving parents, who adopted her when she was a toddler. She was, in fact, born in South Korea.
One day when browsing the web, Anaïs came across a YouTube video that featured a young woman who looked exactly like her... but who had an American accent.
When Anaïs looked up Samantha Futherman, a mysterious LA-based actress, on the Internet, she realized that Samantha was born in South Korea on the exact same day as she was. And Samantha was also adopted.
The documentary "Twinsters," directed by Samantha Futerman and Ryan Miyamoto, follows the story of the two girls meeting in London for the first time, taking a DNA test, and realizing that they are sisters.
Thank you, social media. This would not have been possible just a couple of decades back.
The documentary premieres at South by Southwest (SXSW) film festival on the 15th of March 2015.
