Season 1

Set in Overland Park, Kansas, this comedy-drama follows Tara Gregson, a wife and mother with dissociative identity disorder (DID).

After deciding to take a break from her medication to discover the real cause of her disorder, her alternate personalties re-emerge: wild and flirty teenager T; old-fashioned housewife Alice; and male, loud, beer-drinking Vietnam vet Buck.

Tara is supported by her calm and level-headed husband Max, her somewhat troubled teenage daughter Kate and quirky, good-hearted son Marshall.

Her sister, Charmaine, is not so supportive, often expressing her doubt about the validity of Tara's disorder.

Tara decides she needs to get to the bottom of what's making her fracture so she stops taking her medication. The result: three of her strongest personalities are set free and take on a life of their own.
