Sisters Samantha Futerman and Anaïs Bordier were adopted and raised halfway around the world. In February 2013, Futerman, an American actor living in Los Angeles, received a Facebook message from Bordier, a French fashion design student living in London.
In the message, Bordier explained how she saw Futerman in a KevJumba YouTube video, thanks to her friend, and was blown away by the resemblance.
After a bit of online research, Bordier discovered that both girls were born in Seoul, South Korea, on November 19, 1987. Shortly after, they were both adopted -- Futerman by an American family and Bordier by a French family.
After the Facebook message, the two began Skyping, texting and using all other forms of social media to communicate. In May 2013, the two were finally ready to meet each other in person for the first time. The two had an instant connection.
Over the past year, the two girls took turns visiting each other. They also travelled to Seoul to visit their adoption agency and discover their roots. What's amazing is that these sisters documented their entire story on video so they could share it with the world.
Since meeting, Futerman and Bordier launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to turn their story into a film. The documentary will include the first meeting of the 26-year-olds, as well as the DNA test to confirm their biological relation. After all, this kind of remarkable story is what movies are made of.
