Conrad Jarrett is at the center of Ordinary People, which begins on the day he makes an appointment with his therapist. Con's suicide attempt m the wake of his brother Buck's death after a boating accident lands him in a mental hospital, where he is given electric shock treatment for severe depression. When he is finally released from the hospital, he feels alienated from family, friends, and teachers, as well as from his former self. He resents his obligations to the swim team and to his former friendships, and he feels at peace only when singing with the choir.
