United States of Tara


United States of Tara (2009-2011) is an American comedy-drama series starring Toni Collette as Tara Gregson, an artist and mother coping with DID (dissociative identity disorder).

At the end of Series 2, we find out that Tara and her sister, Charmaine Craine (Rosemarie DeWitt) were put into foster care by their mother. Tara’s half-brother was abusing her and Tara’s mother chose foster care while she made other arrangements for her husband’s son from his first marriage.

It is only when Tara, accompanied by Charmaine, visits the foster mother that she becomes aware she has a half-brother.
