John Yossarian, a neurotic World War II bomb plane pilot whose only goal is to survive the war – by getting out of it.
Yossarian and his unit have a mandatory flight requirement before they can be discharged, but their nefarious Colonel Cathcart keeps upping the number.
Surrounded by kill-crazy commanders and eccentric peers, Yossarian desperately yearns to escape more missions, pleading with the unit’s doctor to declare him insane.
Thus enters Catch-22, a mind-bending loophole in the show’s military code that states any soldier wishing to be sent home must only ask – but that once he does ask, he’s proven his own sanity and is required to continue serving.
