Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan’s show is a suspenseful drama series. Mildred Ratched, an asylum nurse’s origin is the show’s premise.
Mildred arrives in Northern California in 1947 in search of employment at a leading psychiatric hospital. The hospital conducts new and unsettling experiments on the human mind. However, there’s more to it than what meets the eyes.
Mildred is on a clandestine mission and she presents herself as the perfect image of a dedicated nurse. The tables turn when she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it. Mildred’s stylish exterior belies growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.
Kesey’s novel originally depicts a different story. It revolves around a criminal named Randle Patrick McMurphy. He fakes an insanity plea to get transferred to a psychiatric hospital instead of prison. Here, he must rise against cruel Nurse Ratched in order to get out. The novel was adapted into a feature-length film in 1975. The film starred Jack Nicholson as McMurphy and Louise Fletcher as Ratched.
