Meet Peggy, an aggressive nine-year-old...Vicky, a sophisticated young lady...Mary, a grandmother. Meet Vanessa, Mike, Sid and everyone who lives in the mind of Sybil Dorsett. Sybil doesn't know about her secret selves. But she does know something is wrong, so terribly wrong that it may drive her to suicide. This wrenching true story of a woman whose tortured childhood shattered her into multiple personalities won four Emmys, including Outstanding Special and Outstanding Actress for Sally Field, who portrays Sybil. Field is a revelation in the role that established TV's former The Flying Nun as one of America's most respected actresses. And Joanne Woodward is the film's anchor as the wise, tenacious doctor who is determined to help Sybil find herself. And find peace.
