Rebellious rogue Randle P. McMurphy contrives reassignment from a prison farm to an airy mental institution to serve out a short penal sentence. This, he learns, may have been an error when he meets his match in the passive-aggressive disciplinarian despot Nurse Ratched, who oversees the psychiatric ward with a tight rein and hard line. While McMurphy tries to liberate the hospital inmates with basketball games, TV, partying, and even women, the uncompromising Ratched squeezes her iron fist, and their battle of wills influences the ward’s patients to start thinking for themselves.
