A boy believes that a new train service will create a miracle for his fractured family.  Rich, subtle, delicate and hugely rewarding film from Japan.

This film stars real-life brothers Koki Maeda and Oshiro Maeda and tells the story of two young brothers who got separated and had to live in different cities – one with their father, one with their mother and her parents – and dream of reuniting.

The moving and deeply satisfying work of a director who just keeps on getting better.” (Peter Bradshaw – The Guardian)
