In a crowded Tokyo train station, a sharply dressed man waits for the love of his life to arrive. At the same station, a woman walks dangerously close to the edge, up and down the platform. These two are closely observed under the watchful eye of a noodle-stand girl who decides to take their fates into her own hands. Based on personal histories and the blurred line between truth and imagination, Train is a story of love and loss in a place where lives and possibilities intersect.
