McMurphy, a charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison, learns he has made a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. He takes over the ward and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years - makes a presumed deaf and dumb Indian talk.  He leads others out of introversion; stages a revolt so that they can see the world series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies.
