A man in a mental hospital longs to escape what he deems is the sadistic control of his life by the doctors treating his mental illness.
Incarcerated for 26 years in a vast psychiatric facility, the narrator of Nine Ninety-Nine hates the hospital with a passion. Each of the hated treatments he receives symbolizes various social and political factors. He views the hospital and all those who attempt to treat him as part of a frightening, malevolent and sadistic outfit.
And yet, there is something more waiting for him, something outside of the hospital walls. As his story progresses down unknown paths, he may find something beyond the illness that has debilitated him for so long in the eye-opening journey of Nine Ninety-Nine.
