Seven-year-old Kate is running in the park when she feels compelled to touch a tree. This marks the beginning of a life-long struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a fascinating disease of rituals and doubts run wild. Narrated by Golden Globe winner, Sandra Oh, Three Lives of Kate is a tender diary exploring issues of free will and how psychological illness affects family, friends and one’s sense of self.
