Woman With 15 Personalities (DHC) - This one-hour documentary follows a Wisconsin woman named Paula as she struggles to live a normal life, despite suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder. In all, Paula has 14 different personalities, or “alters,” living inside her mind.
These alters vary in age, sex, and abilities -- one is a 12-year-old basketball player, another is a fragile 5-year-old who loves to draw -- but they have a common goal -- to protect Paula in her day-to-day interactions and to shield her from the horrifying trauma she suffered as a child. As Paula gets farther down the road to recovery, she faces the challenge of “integrating” all 14 alters back into one self. But is this what she really wants?
