Stories from the past and
present converge at a small railway in Billy Potok, a tiny village on the Czech-Polish border. The local dispatcher, Alois Nebel, is a loner who prefers old timetables to people and has hallucinations of trains passing through the station from the last 100 years. Ghosts and visions from the dark past of Central Europe – Nazi occupation,
transportation of Jews,
communists’ revenge on the Germans – ultimately send him on a tumultuous and ominous journey.
