Synopsis

In 1993, Scotland's Bearsden Academy welcomed a new student. He introduced himself as Brandon Lee, a teenager from Canada. His father was a professor and his mother, a touring opera singer.

The teachers were impressed by Brandon's academic intelligence and his dream of enrolling in medical school. He came off a bit awkward but soon found his place, making friends and starring in the school musical.

Nothing seemed out of the ordinary until a year later. By then, Brandon was studying at Dundee University's medical school, but the authorities had discovered his secret.

As it turns out, Brandon Lee was not who he said he was. In reality, the teenaged student was actually a 30-year-old man named Brian MacKinnon, who had graduated from Bearsden Academy more than 10 years earlier.

This documentary recounts the scandal from the perspective of students, teachers, and even "Brandon" himself (with his audio interview lip-synced by actor Alan Cumming).
