Based upon the identically titled classic novel by author Franz Kafka, The Trial tells the story of a man named Josef K. (Anthony Perkins) whose apartment is unexpectedly raided by the police.  None of the officers explain what Josef has done, nor do his neighbors have any information.


In the following days Josef loses his job under mysterious circumstances and is eventually jailed.  Still, no one officially charges him with a crime.  He visits lawyers, priests, and even artists to find an answer; although everyone seems to know his fate, no one is capable of identifying his misdeed.
