Storyline

When a woman with multiple personality disorder finds herself uncontrollably chasing danger in the form of one-night stands with abusive men, she's ready to end it all. Can a relationship with one good man change her mind? Alanna Ubach (Meet the Fockers, Legally Blonde, Waiting) stars in this gritty exploration of a woman battling dangerous impulses while searching for the love that can bring her back to balance. Margaret lives with dissociative identity disorder, and while she strives to lead a normal life, at night she surrenders to a cycle of compulsive sex and brutal self-punishment. When she meets Walker, a compassionate man with a deep desire to help, the romance she thought would save her threatens to push her over the edge. Can she show her many faces to someone and still believe in love? Written by S. Hancock

Alanna Ubach Shines!
1 July 2018 | by lpadler-69103See all my reviews

Alanna Ubach puts in a tremendous performance as a young thirtysomething woman with multiple-personality disorder, a gigantic departure from her ditzy cheerleader character in "Legally Blonde." Not a feel-good movie, but a captivating one.
