“Twinsters” is an incredible separated-at-birth story that can only exist in the digital age. The heartfelt documentary is told through the perspective of American-raised actress and YouTube star Samantha Futerman. The story begins when French-raised design student Anaïs Bordier discovers Futerman through the Internet and believes they might somehow be related. The film opens with Bordier and her friends attempting to establish contact with Futerman on Instagram and Facebook after realizing that the two look eerily similar.
