The Trial is set on the morning of Josef K.'s 30th birthday when he is unexpectedly arrested by two unidentified strangers from an unidentified agency for an unspecified crime. Confident of his innocence despite not knowing the charges, K. sets out to face the justice system with the help of an increasingly bizarre cast of characters.
