Lesson is, always have an escape plan when committing yourself to an insane asylum...

For their second and final 'testisode', Kate explores the horrifying history of how society has mistreated those who are mentally ill. Tales of mistreatment, abuse and plenty of politically incorrect terminology. You will be left with a new found respect for not living in the 1800's.

All is not lost however, Nellie Bly is to the rescue as we delve into the brave and heroic actions of a young female journalist who put her own life and sanity on the line to bring justice to a broken system.
