Mercer's teleplay was in turn based on a case study, by R. D. Laing, of a chronic schizophrenic published in 'The Divided Self' as "The Ghost of Weed Garden". The quasi-documentary style of the film lends immediacy to an unremitting portrayal of the destructiveness possible in the nuclear family and to a polemic against traditional psychiatry. While heightening the emotional effect, the filmmaker's uncritical acceptance of some of Laing's opinions runs the risk of oversimplifying the issues involved
