WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Gripped by the memory of an accident he could not prevent, a restless train driver wanders an African township, trying to lose himself in anguish and guilt. What he finds instead is an unexpected stranger who has the power to offer forgiveness that would free him from his torment.
