#CHATTAHOOCHEE On Blu-ray For The First Time March 24th

Emmett Foley ( Gary Oldman , Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, The Dark Knight), a Korean War hero institutionalized in the Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee, FL following an attempted suicide, becomes an unlikely crusader, fighting to change a system that allowed the doctors and staff to brutalize their patients.
