One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
All the rules are about to be broken as Randall P. McMurphy, a boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel swaggers into the ward of a mental hospital and takes over. The life-loving McMurphy rallies the other mental ward patients around him as he challenges the dictatorship of Nurse Ratched. At every turn he defies the rules set down by the tyrannical nurse. The contest starts as sport, but soon develops into a grim struggle for the minds and hearts of the men in the ward. Eventually, an all-out war is waged between two relentless opponents: Nurse Ratched, backed by the power of authority, and McMurphy, who has only his indomitable will. This tragic-comic, high-stakes power struggle between individuality and conformity offers tremendous insight into the human condition. Adult themes, profanity.
