Description

Kafka's Metamorphosis meets Gregor the Overlander in this supernatural literary drama wherein Evan is slowly turning into a wuftoom, large wormlike creatures who can speak and have their own civilization underground. In fact, many creatures we would think of as insects have dark civilizations below, and as Evan discovers more of their struggles, wars, and desires, he realizes he must give up everything he once held dear.
