Synopsis

Anders and Harri are best friends. They both like music but Anders also loves trains. One day they set out for the town of Geta where a tragic railroad accident occurred in 1918. They are so moved by the memorial site that they write a song about it. The Swedish directing duo demonstrates that 13 minutes is enough to capture the essence of deep feelings on film. Although touching, the film presents a non-sentimental look at friendship, fear, and trains.
