A heartwarming tale about the turning point in the life of an elite business man in his fifties and a local train that has been running since 1911.

But one day, his mother in Shimane falls ill, and his best friend dies in an accident. Grief-stricken, Hajime returns home, where memories of his childhood dream come back to him. He had always wanted to be a train conductor and drive the local "bataden" Ichibata Electric Railway.
