The Lost Sons

back to projects

From the makers of The Imposter and Three Identical Strangers comes the remarkable and inspiring story of a kidnapping, a family secret, betrayal and redemption. In April 1964, a baby named Paul is kidnapped from a hospital in Chicago. Fifteen months later, a toddler is found abandoned on a street in New Jersey. The FBI begins to suspect that he could be the missing child.

The parents are brought to Newark to meet him, and the mother cries out, “That’s my baby!” It’s only decades later that Paul begins to question his identity. Is he really that kidnapped baby? Paul sets off on a quest to discover what really happened. Two mysteries begin to unravel, and dark family secrets are revealed.
