Summary
With their mental health histories kept secret, ten adults enter a period of psychiatric observation in an isolated group setting. It is up to a panel of experts to determine who is healthy and who isn't. This program documents the first three days of the session, which features several tests designed to bring out evidence of mental disorders. Simulated urban warfare evokes reckless behavior; stand-up comedy stints highlight social anxiety; a barn-cleaning task points to aspects of OCD; and the Wisconsin Card Sort Test brings flexibility, or a lack thereof, into focus. By the end of the program, the assembled mental health professionals are only beginning to distinguish between illness and eccentricity
