Tara Gregson (Toni Collette), a wife and mother of two, has dissociative identity disorder (DID). Whenever she is stressed, she transforms into one of her alternate personalities: wild and flirty teenager T, old-fashioned housewife Alice, and male, loud, beer-drinking Vietnam vet Buck. Tara is supported by her husband Max (John Corbett), her troubled daughter Kate (Brie Larson) and good-hearted son Marshall (Keir Gilchrist). Her sister, Charmaine (Rosemary DeWitt), is not so supportive, often expressing her doubt about the validity of Tara's disorder.
