The Extraordinary Tale of the Times Table

Stylish, whimsical and at times very, very funny, this absurdist take on relationships, alienation and communication is loosely based on Kafka’s Metamorphosis. Unnamed woman She lives a bizarre, isolated existence, sending unsolicited letters to strangers. When He writes back, a fairytale romance begins. But the pressures of life begin to mount and things suddenly take a dark turn.
