The Imposter is a South African anthology drama series produced by Ferguson Films in Season 1 which follows the story of twin sisters, Mantwa and Matshepo Tau, who find themselves at war as a consequence of a moment that changed their lives.

Seventeen years previously, one of the twins was responsible for sending her sister to jail, and went on to have a wonderful, happy life on the outside. Her twin, incarcerated for all those long years, finally breaks out - only to take over the life of her sister.
