Josef K. finds himself in the waiting room of an old train station in the middle of nowhere. He’s waiting for a train which is supposed to take him to a better place, where he could start a new life.  However there is no exit from the waiting room. It becomes his own prison and his dreams of departure are slowly taken away from him by other passengers, who got stuck in there before him.
