‘Dearly Beloved. We are gathered in the sight of Freud to celebrate the end of innocence and cheer its demise.’

Determined to avoid a term in jail, small time criminal McMurphy opts to spend his sentence in a psychiatric ward. As the reality of his incarceration dawns, he comes up against the authoritarian Nurse Ratched, who is not about to give up her regime of discipline and order without a fight.

Rebellion and conformity clash, and McMurphy and his fellow inmates learn what happens to the individual when the institution takes control.

Associate Director Javaad Alipoor directs this adaptation of the classic novel that inspired the cult film.
