Nikhil is a nurse at a psychiatric hospital in the spectacular Blue Mountains of Australia. There’s just one problem: while his patients heal, he gets worse

With the gift of calming the most troubled and reaching the unreachable, brilliant psychiatric nurse Nik Katira is the most stable person in the Wakefield mental health unit in Australia’s picturesque Blue Mountains. Nik is exceptionally good at his job, but when his own head unexpectedly starts to play tricks on him, this empathetic nurse will begin to question himself and his own mental health.

Tackling the complexity and problematics of mental illness with humor and heart, Wakefield explores the fine line between sanity and insanity, driven by an intriguing psychological mystery. This is a fascinating journey into the mind of a man charged with caring about the minds of others.
