For those who read or watched the original “The One Who Flew Over The Cuckoo’s N’est”, they would remember the infamous and cruel nurse, Ratched, at the ward for the mentally unstable.
This series told the story of how Mildred Ratched came to be a nurse at the Lucia State Hospital in 1947. It also gave us a glimpse of all the trauma and experiences that she had a child and during her time as an army nurse.
1) treating patients in an humane way: This was the ideal and philosophy of the director of the mental institution. It was also Nurse Ratched’s ideology too. Well, it eventually began to be warped…..
2) family: Foster families, non-biological siblings, fake marriages among homosexuals were part of the storyline.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers. But for someone who didn’t read the original novel or even watch the movie back then, I was completely captivated with how her mind worked!
Note: There were some mature scenes and language involved. Not suitable for young viewers.
