THE LIVES I LEAD

THE LIVES I LEAD  

1×20

This is the story of Jessica and her 6 alternate identities, which include a Hollywood actor; a doctor; a hairdresser; a 14-year-old schoolboy and a six year old.

Jessica lives with multiple personalities as part of her Dissociative Identity Disorder. All six live in her body and five of them are male.

Each identity has its own distinctive trait ranging from the use of prescription glasses to being left-handed; neither of which are native to Jessica. Her “alters” exist within a complex system, where they are all known to each other – two of them are brothers, and two of them are partners who have a son.

Through the use of interviews and dramatisation, the true reality of this controversial and often misunderstood condition is finally visualised.
