Waking up in a mental hospital, seven strangers find themselves locked up in a dark psychiatric ward with no way out. They are faced with two choices, swallow the pill or take the shock. The reporter, the driver, the doctor, the lawyer, the professor, the journalist, and the bank clerk are pulling all the stops to prove that they are not ill. Or was it really the chief’s mistake? Hello, Insanity is a thrilling and gently humorous reflection on humanity.
