Between Azerbaijan and Armenia, men young and old labor to build a new railroad promising to bring glory to a new generation. Meanwhile, across closed borders, a lonely stationmaster sits idle in suspended time, waiting for twenty five years for the return of trains. Across the closed borders of Eurasia, men reflect upon their desires and regrets, floating through the expanse striving to fill their days and dreams, as much as their pockets.
