Gregor Samsa is a young man who works at a trendy sales company. He is surrounded by his cool and open-minded colleagues. But competition is high and so is the pressure on each one of them. Gregor starts to feel that he cannot compete anymore. The stress rises and there seems to be no after-work-life left. Samsa fears to fail and the disappointment of his boss starts to show. His sleep becomes restless, a blinding headache and feverish daydreams take control over him. Slowly he loses touch with reality and boundaries between his dreams and real life vanish.
Metamorphosis is inspired by Kafka and his story of Gregor Samsa.
