Plot synopsis
Psychological drama, after Franz Kafka. Gregor Samza wakes one morning after a night of uneasy dreams and finds himself literally and symbolically transformed into a huge, repulsive, and fatally wounded insect. He must now learn to rely upon himself. His family and servants are scared to death and they start behaving cruelly to him. As an insect, Samza is much more humane than his relatives. An absurd character living in an absurd world, finally dying in despair.
