Based on Franz Kafka’s classic novel The Trial, which focuses on government intimidation, individual loneliness, despair, and paranoia, and bureaucratic corruption, this adaptation takes Kafka’s Josef K transforms him into Joseph Kaye and transports him from early 20th century Europe to early 21st century New York City. In this adaptation by Paul Mroczka, Kaye finds himself on a year-long journey in a not-too-distant America where freedoms have been greatly diminished and despair has replaced hope.
