One doctor’s diagnosis is another’s outlandish theory
Christopher is a young black patient confined to a psychiatric ward. He is due for release and wants to go home. The problem is that he thinks oranges are blue and that his doctor wants to section him.
The senior consultant believes it’s all a matter of culture and Christopher will be better off at home with “people who are just like him”. But are things so black and white? Should he stay or should he go?
This scathing yet comical tale challenges our pre-conceptions about
race, mental illness, and the place of the NHS in Britain today.
