United States of Tara is a witty and compelling dramedy about a woman named Tara (Toni Collette), who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. She lives in Overland Park, Kansas with her husband Max (John Corbett), her daughter Kate (Brie Larson), and her son Marshall (Keir Gilchrist). Whenever she gets stressed, she transitions into one of her alters. There are three main alters: T is an out of control fifteen year old girl; Buck is a man who loves motorcycles and beer more than anything; and Alice is a vintage, conservative housewife who seems to be stuck in the 1960’s. The alters take over her body when she can’t deal with a situation, and sometimes things get messy. Therefore, she tries her best to get rid of them, which doesn’t always succeed.
