Episode Summary

This episode is dedicated to some very unlikely friendships through the ages. Charlotte Dillworth and Angelina Mason, who shared a duplex and were great friends, had a friendship that endured through the Civil War, as their husbands fought on opposite sides. How were they able to maintain a bond between them when so much pulled them apart? The story of Hoang Duong, a Vietnamese child who is befriended by a young girl whose father fought in Vietnam. The story of Ben Putland, whose search for a kidney donor connected him to a long lost friend, plus many more uncanny true-life stories.
