An imprisoned man suffers unspeakable horrors for an unnamed crime in director Charlie Deaux's surreal adaptation of Franz Kafka's In the Penal Colony. The world outside has disappeared, and the only thing that the imprisoned man knows as he suffers the tortures of a sadistic bureaucrat is pain. Though his ultimate fate may be inescapable, the torment he endures allows the suffering prisoner to journey inward through the complex layers of his own metaphysical existence in a desperate attempt to make sense of the violence that will no doubt consume him.
