We've all experienced coincidences. But what is a coincidence, really? This short animated film narrated by Alfred Molina examines three disparate stories: One about King Umberto of Italy and his doppelganger, another about Anthony Hopkins and The Girl from Petrovka, and the last about a would-be lottery winner from Rhode Island. What connects them? A series of events which are all true but are so unlikely that one might wonder if cosmic forces are at play. Stories like these are the essence of a phenomenon called Synchronicity. We examine this everyday occurrence which often makes us feel surprised, euphoric and even, at times, fearful.
