Synopsis

Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) is working in the toy department of a department store in New York during the Christmas season. She is approached by a woman, Carol Aird (Cate Blanchett), and she purchases a model train set for her daughter as a gift on her recommendation. She accidentally leaves her gloves on the counter, and Therese mails them back to her home in New Jersey. Meanwhile, Carol is going through a difficult divorce with her husband, Harge (Kyle Chandler), and is struggling to maintain custody of their daughter Rindy. Out of loneliness and gratitude for her kind act, Carol invites Therese to lunch, and they strike up a friendship. Carol invites her to her home for the holiday. Therese, who is also an aspiring photographer, takes several pictures of her as she buys a Christmas tree. Harge, who is suspicious of his wife's relationship with Therese following a brief tryst that she had years earlier with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson), leaves on a trip to Florida and takes Rindy with her.

I'm Not There uses a nonlinear narrative, shifting between six characters in separate storylines "inspired by the music and many lives of Bob Dylan". Each character represents a different facet of Dylan's public persona: poet (Arthur Rimbaud), prophet (Jack Rollins/Father John), outlaw (Billy McCarty), fake (Woody Guthrie), "rock and roll martyr" (Jude Quinn), and "star of electricity" (Robbie Clark). These seven characters represent different aspects of Dylan's life and music.
