A two-year look at battling mental illness in the maximum-security Biggs unit. The Biggs unit, a component of Fulton State Hospital, is called a "forensic" center because many of its inhabitants have committed criminal acts, in many cases shocking acts of violence against family members or loved ones. Hope for the "Sickest of the Sick." The Inner Battle. Reaching the Unreachable. Silencing the Voices. Pleading Insanity.
