Synopsis

As Franz Kafka struggles to come up with the opening line to his new novel, "Metamorphosis," the reclusive writer finds himself involved in a series of bizarre interruptions from laughter at a Christmas party downstairs to a vagrant in search of his pet cockroach. On a dark Christmas Eve, Kafka not only solves his writer's block, but finds himself amidst a steady stream of well-wishers oddly reminiscent of the classic Frank Capra movie "It's a Wonderful Life" (USA/1946).
