A terrifying psychological trip into the life of one Joseph K., an ordinary man who wakes up one day to find himself accused of a crime he did not commit, a crime whose nature is never revealed to him. Once arrested, he is released, but must report to court on a regular basis--an event that proves maddening, as nothing is ever resolved. As he grows more uncertain of his fate, his personal life--including work at a bank and his relations with his landlady and a young woman who lives next door--becomes increasingly unpredictable. As K. tries to gain control, he succeeds only in accelerating his own excruciating downward spiral.

Welles applied his directorial style to Kafka's landmark 1925 novel about Joseph K., an office clerk who gets arrested without being told why. The film concentrates on the atmosphere of K's world, accompanied by the dreamy musical leitmotif. The sets are typical Welles baroque, massive structures.
