Two British women of Jamaican descent are confined to a psychiatric unit. One is prone to mood swings and sudden bursts of loud public singing; the other hears voices in her head. Both are considered 'mad'.
As this remarkable and powerful story unfolds, each woman traces the events that led to her incarceration and, in mapping the past, can begin to envisgage the future.
