A land surveyor, K., is invited to the Castle to do some work for the Count, but when he arrives at the Village, he finds that nobody is expecting him. K. is a stubborn man and he tries to exercise his rights, but everyone seems united against him. The harder K. tries to reach his goal, the farther from it he finds himself. The Castle bureaucracy is impenetrable and K. continues to remain what he was on the day of his arrival - a stranger who is barely tolerated.
