We'll be talking about: Busy Inside (2019)
“BUSY INSIDE” tells the true story of Karen and Marshay, two idiosyncratic women with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). Karen Marshall is a respected therapist who treats patients with DID -- the condition of having multiple personalities often resulting from child abuse. Among her patients is Marshay, a biracial musician, who sometimes struggles to believe that she really has DID. Marshay works with Karen to overcome her painful childhood memories, embrace her multiple selves, and find peace. But, Karen is still haunted by her own past, juggling seventeen of her own alter egos.
