And as Sam is pulled into Richard's twisted past, she is forced to confront the most terrifying thing of all. Her own mind. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest for the twenty-first century, The Blind reveals how little we know about what happens in each others' heads - and how we often deny what goes on in our own.
