When to see it
Psychotherapist Ernest arrives at an antiquated mental hospital on his first job after graduating from the Institution of Proper Appropriate Behaviour. He's assigned to the patients in West Wing Ward W – all of whom claim to come from a place called Wonderland. Ernest disrupts the ward's never-ending tea party to insist on a 'T for Therapy' party that no one may leave until they're all properly normal.
But slowly and surely, as the T party goes on, Ernest seems to become more and more like the inmates he is meant to be treating.
