But suddenly, after the "metamorphosis", he wakes up one day turned into a huge insect, a giant beetle. This prevents him from continuing to carry out his trade as a merchant and forces the rest of his family to work in order to survive. His strange situation and the rejection he causes in his environment lead him to seclude himself and isolate himself socially.
