    Freedom is defined as 'the condition of being free of restraints'; but freedom for me has a greater and deeper meaning.

    One flew East, One flew West, One died without a part of his brain. In my opinion the main theme of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is conformity. The patients at this mental institution, or at least the one in the Big Nurse’s ward, find themselves on a rough situation where not following standards costs them many privileges being taken away.
