Official Poster & Trailer for Bart Layton’s Documentary THE IMPOSTER

“From as long as I remember, I wanted to be someone else.” A documentary centred on a young Frenchman who convinces a grieving Texas family that he is their 16-year-old son who went missing for 3 years.

In 1994 a 13-year-old boy disappears without a trace from his home in San Antonio, Texas. Three and a half years later he is found alive thousands of miles away in Spain with a shocking story of kidnap and torture. His family is overjoyed to bring him home, but all is not quite what it seems. He bears many of the same marks but why does he have a strange accent? Why does he look so different?

And why doesn’t the family seem to notice these glaring inconsistencies? It’s only when an investigator starts asking questionsthat this astonishing true story takes an even stranger turn…
