Funny Farm

Synopsis

It's a mad world - so who's to say who or what is crazy? Out of order? Or not normal?  Where do we draw the fine line between what is 'funny mad' or just 'plain insane'? When does a disorder define as dysfunctional?
Funny Farm turns the commonly-held concept of what is unacceptably 'crazy' on its hilarious head - and enlightens the world of rehabilitation, relapse and recovery with a little laughter, debunking the Anglo-American culture of 'therapy' along the way.
