Feature film | Drama Duration 99:00

The death of an old Gypsy. A girl on a railway track. A son's hatred towards his father. A girl in a wheelchair. These are the keywords that build up a story. A railway, a train, and the novel "Anna Karenina" by Lev Tolstoy bring together the destinies of three families, several lonely people, old friends and total strangers. All of them have to face problems caused by misunderstandings and unspoken messages. During their journey, they become more tolerant and understanding.
