McMurphy is sent to a mental asylum for evaluation. The authorities need to know if he is insane or faking it. McMurphy then goes about making a total nuisance of himself as he throws the well ordered schedule of the hospital haywire while showing the inmates a good time.

The story is all about control. A system trying to exert control over its inhabitants. McMurphy is the spanner in the works, as he refuses to conform to the system.

Based on the book by Ken Kesey, this movie is a must-watch.
