This 1988 documentary describes the tumultuous process involved in bringing One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest to the screen. After having his script confiscated by Czech authorities in the early '60s, Milos Foreman would have to wait nearly ten years before Kirk and Michael Douglas could secure funding for the counterculture classic. Documentarian Charles Kiselyak revisits many of the people and places involved in the film, including the Oregon State Mental Hospital, which has since fallen into squalid disrepair.
