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.
