Summary In this anthology film, an elderly businessman finds solace and a new insight into life when he meets a younger woman who arranges his train ticket after his flight is canceled. A young man is torn between an older woman who controls him and a younger one that attracts him. And three Scottish youths on their way to the football match of their dreams are forced to open their eyes and see the bigger picture when they meet an Albanian family. In each case, the train journey changes the course of all their lives.
