Biography / Documentary / Family



On February 21, 2013, Samantha, an American actor living in Los Angeles, received a message via Facebook that would drastically change her life. It was from Anaïs, a French fashion design student living in London. Anaïs' friends viewed a video on YouTube featuring Samantha. They were immediately blown away by the identical appearance of Samantha & Anaïs. After a few light Google stalking sessions, Anaïs & her friends discovered that both girls were born on November 19, 1987 and adopted shortly after. Anaïs knew immediately that it was possible for Samantha to be her biological twin sister and reached out to her through Twitter & Facebook. This sparked the beginning of the journey for Samantha and Anaïs. —Samantha Futerman

Cannot praise it enough

This documentary was possibly the most emotionally involving film I've seen in years. As the protagonist becomes immersed in the totally surreal experience of discovering and meeting her doppelgänger on another continent, the viewer can completely empathize with every twinge of emotion, euphoria, stupefaction, and deep, deep feeling. It also provides some good insights into the Korean international adoption phenomenon and the large number of adoptees hoping to meet their birth mothers. By turns hilarious and heartrending, it really gives you the whole roller-coaster experience. Bring a hanky and be prepared to fall in love.

The skill and immediacy of the story-telling are phenomenal--well-conceived and beautifully executed. The music and animation are effectively and judiciously used, and the editing was genius.

Of course it is an amazing story, so that helps. It left me wanting to stay involved in the story, caring so much about these endearing, creative, hilarious, true-hearted people. Brava! (pop)

Heart, soul and tears :-)

I just finished watching this movie, just now :-) WOW this movie indeed touched me. I cried a lot, i laughed, i got upset and i got curious all while watching this movie. You get all emotions when watching this documentary about this two lovely sisters who found each other. The story was interesting and we viewers got to follow these two sisters on their life journey. A very emotional movies, when i saw the girls crying, i cried too :-) I wish they would create a 2nd edition of this story, so we could follow them in their next chapter in life. Whatever genre of film/documentary you are interested in, this applies to everyone i feel. We all can relate someone when it comes to LOVE/Family :-) I recommend everyone to watch this documentary.

extremely emotional

This documentary was very well done. I wept through most of it, struck by how nearly impossible it was to tell one sister from the other when they were not speaking. I'm so glad that Anais' friends discovered Samantha on Youtube and brought them together. I'm glad their growing up families where both very supportive of their reuniting and most of all, extremely glad that they both agreed to go back to S. Korea, the land of their birth. I'm happy for them that they met their foster mothers who were warm and welcoming. But as a reunited mother of a child I lost to adoption (in the US) I can't but feel horribly sad not only for the twins but for their mother who, over the past 25 years still wasn't able to break free of the horrid restraints on mothers who lose there children to adoption in Korea, and agree to meet her two wonderful daughters. I have been to Korea and realize that their social mores are very similar to what ours in the US were in the middle of the last century in the U.S., but I can't but hope that their mother will someone gather the strength it takes, after losing two of her precious babies to adoption, to agree to meet them now. If there was anything I could say to her from one mother to another, it is that meeting your lost 'babies' will set your free from the horrible bondage of loss that parting with them has locked you in. And having them and their love in your life now, will help you through whatever nightmare S. Korean society still uses to hold you down, away from your lost 'babies'. All that said, I feel Holt Agency has committed huge crimes against the parent and perhaps unplanned children of Korea by making it possible to export more children from their home country than any other nation in the world. They owe it to each and ever adoptee and their natural parents to do everything in their power to make thing right, work to bridge the gap that adoption separation and loss has caused and help families reunite and achieve some form of healing and continuity in the lives they have left to live. I wish both Anias and Samantha all the best that life has to offer as they go forward from here, hopefully, that will include meeting their 1st mother and other family members to make their loss come full-circle and given then some sense of feeling complete again beyond what their reunion to date has done
