WARNING: Contains coarse language & mature themes.

Randle Patrick McMurphy, a criminal who has been sentenced to a fairly short prison term, decides to have himself declared insane so he’ll be transferred to a mental institution, where he expects to serve the rest of his term free of prison labor and in comparative comfort and luxury. He quickly becomes ensnared in a power game with an unyielding tyrant in Nurse Ratched, vying for the hearts and minds of the patients. Meanwhile, the question is just how sane the patients in the ward actually are and whether any of them really belong there.
