From Sybil to less-publicized cases, THE UNEXPLAINED examines the causes and conflicts of multiple personalities.
They are victims of their own psyches, people forced to live with a disability that is frightening, confounding and potentially dangerous.
Sybil made millions of Americans aware of Multiple Personality Disorder, but it remains one of the most misunderstood mental problems. For some people, abuse or trauma triggers it, but in many other cases there is no apparent cause behind the onset of the affliction. THE UNEXPLAINED enters the minds of several people who have battled Multiple Personality Disorder for an intimate, personal look at what life is like for those whose bodies can be taken over by the strangers in their own minds. Physicians and psychiatrists explore possible causes and cures, while people close to those who have the disease offer their insight on what happened to their loved ones. And we?ll take a long look at the case of Sybil herself.
It's a compelling investigation into a disturbing illness that defies science and medicine.
