A small deserted rail station. Nobody gets on or off the train. An old retired switchman lives there with his family. In the nearby village the local poet digs graves to make ends meet. A projectionist remembers the once crowded movie theatre. A shepherd dreams of ice cream. Confessions from little people about not so little things - cows, life, faith, death, the benefits of dogs and mice and the need for blond waitresses, Jean-Paul Sartre and existentialism, river fishing, old fortune tellers and the wind.
