A train bound for a mysterious destination stops in the
middle of a meadow. As the hours pass and the cause of the delay remains
unknown, we meet the various passengers. There is a priest, a former president,
a lonely waitress, an elderly couple, and a young orphan boy, each pondering
the significance of the journey thrust upon them and what awaits them at their destination.
Will they find order? Loneliness? Love?
Soon another train headed in the opposite direction also
stops in the meadow. Its passengers are brimming with the excitement of what
lies ahead. As mysterious officials process passengers from the outbound train,
the characters reflect on their pasts and examine their futures. But it is the
truth about their destination that is the ultimate revelation.
