Official first trailer for The Imposter, by director Bart Layton.
Nicholas Barclay (old recordings): The birthday girl. Ain't she beautiful? And here is her brother: Nic.
Police, go ahead.
We've found a kid. About 14, 15 years old.
June 1994 Nicholas Barclay disappears from Texas.
The thought of what somebody could've done to him. It gives you nightmares.
No ID. No documents on him. He's very scared.
Three years later he is found in Spain.
Nicholas Barclay's family: Just gotta go get him and get him back here where he's safe.
I didn't see how I could not document him as a US citizen.
We had no idea what kind of person we were getting. He looked very different.
He disappeared without a trace three years ago. Tonight the San Antonio boy is back home.
When a child is missing for years, either the child is dead or the child is not found.
He was tortured. I mean, he had torture written all over.
This kid's really messed up.
There's just something wrong about it.
Something was being hidden and I didn't know what that was.
