Hawk and a Handsaw
Investigating mysterious happenings at a mental institution, Fraser decides to get himself committed to learn the truth about the mysterious Blue Room and a man named Ty.
While accompanying Ray to his annual psychological examination, Fraser saves the life of a man precariously walking along a fifth story ledge. The man, a psychiatric patient, is desperately searching for Ty. His cryptic comments are dismissed as the rantings of a delusional John Doe. But something rings true to Fraser. On and off the buses and over the bridges of Chicago he somehow manages to make sense of the bizarre clues and tracks down Ty -- only to tragically discover that he killed himself 5 years earlier.
But Fraser persists in his belief that someone was out on that ledge. And when a naked corpse is pulled from the river, Fraser is convinced that the corpse is the person whom John Doe saw on the ledge. Fraser goes to the hospital and tells them a little bit of the truth about himself -- a Mountie in Chicago with a lip reading wolf. As he anticipated, he is promptly admitted as a psychiatric patient. While locked up, the patients tell Fraser frightening stories of a mysterious blue room where patients are taken and die.
But when he and Ray get too close to uncovering the truth, they're both placed in straight-jackets, thrown in a sealed padded cell and targeted for the "blue room" themselves. In a few hours, they will receive a lethal injection, the evidence will be destroyed and all will be lost, unless they can escape and draw upon the help of the other patients.
