ME, YOU, THEM is based on a true story of a Brazilian woman living with her three husbands. Regina Case stars as rural fieldworker Darlene who, in this fictionalized tale, is a strong and earthy woman who decidedly chooses to abandon God and live life her own way. Instead of replacing the men in her life with new loves, she accumulates them. First, Darlene marries a man who offers to provide a roof over her head. She agrees with him that their marriage is merely a “good arrangement.” She tries to please him by giving birth to a son, though the child is evidently not his. Her emotional needs still unmet, Darlene has an affair with a friend who is later invited to live in their home. After giving birth to this lover’s child, Darlene falls for a younger homeless fieldworker who is also invited to live with them. He asks Darlene to run away with him, but has second thoughts when she gives birth to his baby boy.
