'You call this life? This is death wrapped in plastic packaging.'
Greta Samsa awakes from uneasy dreams to find herself changed. She in turn decides to change the world, starting with her family.
Only trouble is her brother Gregor is refusing to emerge from his room and Mum and Dad are too busy to notice. An unexpected visitor arrives and things take a surreal turn.
But when Gregor finally decides to show his face, Greta discovers the world has radically transformed around her and she now holds all their futures in her hands.
A startling black comedy about love and revolution.
