"This is a true story of one rugby playing boy’s journey from normal New Zealand rural life in the 1980’s to the depths of the last decayed and torturous mental intuitions. Take a ring side seat into an explosive fight for freedom and sanity.
“When you're a mental patient living inside a loony bin, at first you think that the precarious thing about saving yourself is trying to remain sane while living close to the edge. One becomes very careful not to go native, to get caught up in the liberating effects of no longer having to conform within a conventional society.
One forgets what sane is - one can’t help going native. One soon learns we are all crazy in diff ering degrees and in the subjective eyes of others. I came to the conclusion that, the real battle is not to remain sane as a mental patient; your sanity is irrelevant. You begin to believe life in the bin is not survival of the fittest; it's not real survival at all.”"
