A novel based on the story of two men who's struggle is very real. 

Their criminal past is horrific but their living conditions are far from ideal as they fight for survival. Institution is fiction based within a situation that was reality for so many before the closure of the mental health institutions.  Torture within the walls that were built to protect, experimentation on those without a voice.

What happened to all those people when these places closed? The daunting truth unfolds on how cruel society has been.

From an author who has looked into the eyes of those who had lost hope and provided some--had her life changed so drastically as a result through injury--Donna reveals through this novel just how much environmental factors impact on personality.
