“When someone is in the process of losing one’s mind, the pathway to sanity is to reach back into your heart to find the place that God has laid claim, to lead you in the right direction.” That was a very logical & Christian thing to consider at the time.

Torn: “Sixty Days of Calaboose”
~A Fictional Memoir ~
(Psychological Drama) 2012
What could possibly go wrong for a sensitive effeminate male unexpectedly incarcerated in a room full of straight unpredictable men? For Adrian Bailey, just about everything, and in the midst of fear, lies, prejudice, and madness, he finds more…
Under false pretenses, Adrian Bailey finds himself arrested and locked up in the local county jail for the first time in his life. Despite all the horror stories he had read or heard of concerning life behind bars, nothing was like the actual experience. Not only was he utterly devastated and confused over the situation he was unjustly thrown into, but also lost at the mercy of whatever actions that could or would be made against him, including prejudice from someone of his own race. As the madness of his experiences take control, Adrian fears his only recourse is to succumb to whatever means necessary to survive.
The traumatic events that occur thereafter would surpass everything Adrian thought he ever knew about real life. And then he finds what he never expected: an intense three-way love affair that would test every remaining fiber of his mental stability and then some. Worst of all, there wasn’t one thing he could do to stop it. Not one damn thing at all…
“Torn: Sixty Days of Calaboose” is a contemporary psychological drama that fits outside the box of familiar reading because of the subject matter therein. Though the story is without any graphic sex or extreme violence, it deals heavily with all elements of a single character’s downward spiral into madness and other experiences behind the walls of a small town county jail. In a way it can be somewhat compared to HBO’s once popular prison series “Oz.”
Question: Have you ever met a character who slowly but surely loses their mind right before your very eyes and they actually know it? It happens here…
