The Metamorphosis is the story of an ordinary man who wakes up one morning to find he has been transformed into a giant insect. He soon begins to realise he's got bigger problems than being late for work. Unable to keep his bizarre condition secret, his family, shocked by the changes they see in their son, barricade him into his room, unwilling to accept that somewhere inside this behemoth of a bug is their son.

Franz Kafka's iconic, hugely influential, tragicomic novella is brought vividly to life in this international co-production, adapted and directed by Vanishing Point's Matthew Lenton and designed by Kenneth MacLeod (The Dark Carnival).
