The amazing fact is that train drivers inadvertently kill dozens of people in their careers because of an accident or because people want to commit suicide. After the break has been activated, it takes about 700 meters for the train to stop, releasing the engineers of every responsibility. Ilija Todorovic (Lazar Ristovski), during his career, killed 28 people. Along with his father and grandfather, that number is over 60. Ilija's routine life is completely changed when the train almost hits a ten-year-old boy who tried to commit suicide. After he managed to stop the train, Ilija decided to adopt a boy who, as an adult, decided that he wants to become a train driver as well.
This movie was a Serbian candidate for the 89th Oscar Award in the category long-acting feature film in a foreign language, and at the festival in Prague in 2017, it was pronounced the best film and won the "Golden Star".
