The Meaning of Fyfe
AMID THE GRITTY
‘70s streets of Montreal borough Verdun, John R Fyfe walks an observational tightrope, his sanity at stake.
His uncompromised gaze dissects the hypocrisy of society’s authorities – teachers, doctors, bosses – while commiserating with the outcasts they’ve locked away during a spiraling summer of tension working at the Samson insane asylum. Turns out the lines defining crazy, inside & outside the institution’s walls, are blurred indeed.
Mingling with the mad earns his pay, fuelling a drink & drug-filled pursuit of women & adventure, unsure if he’s expanding his consciousness or opening a door to something darker within. Pulsing with the urgency of youth & fading dreams, screaming down the highway with a bottle in hand; how far will John go to discover The Meaning of Fyfe?
