America ReFramed

Busy Inside

Season 09  Episode 4

Through personal stories, BUSY INSIDE delves deeply into Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) - formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder. This condition fascinates and puzzles modern psychiatry. Karen Marshall is a respected therapist who treats patients with DID - the condition of having multiple personalities often resulting from child abuse. Among her patients is Marshay, a biracial musician, who sometimes struggles to believe that she really has DID. Marshay works with Karen to overcome her painful childhood memories, embrace her multiple personalities, and find peace. But, Karen is still haunted by her own past, juggling seventeen of her own alter egos.

BUSY INSIDE works to return dignity to those with DID and bring better understanding of it by creating an honest film about people who live with it every day and giving audiences a direct window into their inner world.
