Unexpectedly widowed, Akira and her stepson seek out her late husband’s estranged father: Setsuo, a train conductor in sunny Kagoshima.

The train ties the three generations together as Akira takes on her husband’s childhood dream to inspire her stepson, and become a train conductor with Setsuo. Showing off the volcanic and sublime landscapes of the southern tip of Japan, this heartwarming film full of hope in a time of grief is also a treat for all train lovers.
