Welcome to the bizzare world of train driving, and everything - from sweeping love to killing - in between.

During their professional career, every train driver inadvertently kills about 20 people. Ilija, a seasoned driver close to retirement, holds an infamous record of 28 and is haunted by some persistent ghosts of the past. When he meets an orphaned boy, they strike up an unlikely friendship. However, when the youngster wants to succeed him in the hazardous trade, it seems Ilija's troubles are far from over... A distinctly eccentric, delectably dark, and hilarious tragicomedy set literally on the railroad tracks, Train Driver's Diary is a true marvel of charming retro feel and a tribute to families found in the most unusual circumstances. – Liva Petersone
