What does it take to let go of certain habits, and move on in life?
Why do people enjoy watching people?

Kurt is escaping from his past on a train. Next to him we find an unanimated “being”.  Donald, the train conductor, does his job in a rather peculiar way. Through the encounter of these characters we learn about Kurt’s staggering past and present.
