A charming rogue schemes to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution to avoid prison work detail. Randle P. McMurphy is sent to the state mental hospital for evaluation where he encounters a motley crew of mostly voluntary inmates and clashes with the fierce head nurse. A boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel, McMurphy takes over the yard and rallies the other patients around him by challenging the dictatorship of Nurse Ratched. He promotes gambling in the ward, smuggles in wine and women, and openly defies the rules at every turn. This insolence, which starts as sport, soon develops into a grim battle between the two unyielding opponents.
