The ‘self’ is warmly and insightfully explored in this documentary, which follows Karen Marshall, a therapist who lives with the same condition as her patients. Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is usually the result of physical and mental childhood trauma, in which individuals can have dozens of personalities, each serving a different purpose. This condition is laid bare, as we see Karen supporting three women – two of whom are interviewed in disguise – through art, music and understanding. And Karen herself is supported by current and former lovers, who acknowledge that conventional understanding of who we ought to be must make way for a deeper understanding of who we are.
