Adaptation of a story written by Antonyn (sic?) Chekhov, a Russian physician (played by the always enjoyable Norman Rose) in the 19th century who takes over a hospital and does the unthinkable (for back then)...he befriends the insane patients in the facility's Ward Six. Unfortunately, lack of funding and overwork take their toll on the doctor, and he finally finds himself becoming as insane as the patients. (Though compared to the outside world the patients seem sane...the line becomes blurred to the good doctor.)
