    • Synopsis
    • An established poet is trapped in an asylum by two crazy doctors in competition over two schools of thought. He wants to write and create, but his hands are tied. The escape is a must. He befriends a young nurse who falls in love with him. She unties his straitjacket. In an outburst, he kills one of the doctors. The next day, the lovers are caught. The nurse is fired. The poet commits suicide.

      Reality gets twisted as the doctor and the poet are resurrected. The nurse is ordered to leave the premises. The doctor who resurrected wants to operate on the poet’s brain. The nurse secretly returns to the institution and steals the poet. She drags him onto a wheelchair and runs away from the asylum. The doctors and aides chase after them.

      Things become complicated for the doctors as the artist befriends a police inspector who loves poetry. The poet attends a public performance to promote his new book. The doctors and aides come to the show but not to enjoy the poetry. Their intentions are to get the poet and to return him to the asylum. Their plan fails, but life goes on. They have a new guinea pig. Another artist is on the way to the institution, and the circle of the madhouse continues.
