An extraordinary story of unbearable pain and the road to justice on 60 MINUTES
A SPECIAL EDITION OF 60 MINUTES
As clever as we think we are, there’s one thing that can outsmart us all. The human brain. But as mighty as it is, it’s also mysterious. Just ask Jeni Haynes. How her mind worked to save her life is one of the most incredible things you’ll ever see. As a young girl, Jeni was subjected to extreme and unimaginable horror. To withstand it, her brain conjured up multiple personalities. In one body lived two and a half thousand different characters, who stepped in at various times to help Jeni deal with the unbearable pain she was suffering. As this remarkable woman explains to Liz Hayes in a special edition of 60 MINUTES, “I didn’t realise that having lots of voices in your head is abnormal.” But that’s not all. Jeni’s army of strangers decided to take on her enemy, fighting extraordinary battles to convince the world she wasn’t crazy, and then bringing the man responsible for all her torment to justice.
