TV show description:
This TV series chronicles the life of a suburban housewife and mother of two from Overland Park, Kansas. Far from typical, she has dissociative identity disorder (DID). Her alternative personalities include the wild and flirty teenaged T, old-fashioned housewife Alice, and a Vietnam war vet named Buck.

Tara Gregson (Toni Collette) works as a mural painter. She loves her family as much as any mother and feels guilty putting them through such bizarre events. She endured sexual abuse during her time in boarding school. She doesn’t have memories of before or after the abuse but has been shown to have had DID before the abuse started. After a DID episode, she never has any memory of what her alter has done, yet her alters know everything about her. She occasionally goes through times of not taking her medication in an attempt to live without the help of drugs, but it’s then the other personalities show again.
