Auckland writer Aimee Inomata tells the powerful story of her partner - a man found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity, and sentenced to seven years in a New Zealand madhouse. But what happens, she asks, if your psychosis is substance-induced, a temporary insanity, and you have to live out your life as a sane person in the kingdom of the insane?
