"Is fate getting what you deserve, or deserving what you get?"
Committed by a scorned lover, the New Girl has to navigate life within a mental hospital. However, as she meets her fellow patients she discovers violent machinations within the facility and that the only insanity to be found belongs to the Head Nurse.
Inspired by 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', Asylum looks at the prejudices and assumptions made surrounding mental health that began in mental institutions during the 1960s and are still engrained in our society today.
