    Brief synopsis

    In the five-minute animated documentary film "The Train Driver", an anonymous train driver recounts his experience with suicide on the rails. Six times he experienced people taking their own lives before his eyes. While surf fishing, he tries to distract himself - but does something like that really leave no trace?
