This newest RAILWAYS film is the first in the series about a female train driver! The protagonist, Aki, is a young woman who loses her husband, visits his homeland of Kagoshima with his son with another woman, and tries to start her life over as a train driver.

Aki, who at 25 married Shuhei, a man with a son from a previous relationship, visits his homeland of Kagoshima to inform his father, Setsuo, of his sudden passing. Setsuo is dismayed by his son’s sudden death and flustered by his daughter-in- law and grandson Shunya who he meets for the first time. Aki and Shunya have lost their home in Tokyo, and they convince Setsuo to let them move in with him in Kagoshima. Aki is determined to raise Shunya as her own son and, for the boy who loves trains, she takes the test to become a train driver for the Hisatsu Orange Railway where Setsuo works. Supported by people around her, she works hard to be a good mother and a competent train driver. Will Aki, Shunya, and Setsuo, each mourning the loss of a beloved family member, be able to overcome their trials and tribulations and find their own version of a family? A tale about a family and a railway with the theme of “making a fresh start.”
