In 1887, at age 23, reporter Nellie Bly, working for Joseph Pulitzer, feigns mental illness to go undercover in notorious Blackwell’s Island a woman’s insane asylum to expose corruption, abuse and murder. Bly elaborately feigns insanity, gets herself arrested and declared insane before a judge to go undercover into Blackwell’s Island Insane Asylum for women, run by E.C. Dent (Christopher Lambert). Behind the thick walls and bars of the asylum, Bly, facing life-threatening peril, sets out to expose institutional corruption, abuse and murder. Bly’s article launches investigations by judicial courts, including the grand jury, that ultimately lead to the successful shutdown of Blackwell’s Asylum. Nellie Bly is the first woman in history to write a serious investigative front-page news story. She was called the greatest reporter in America.
