TIFF edition:

It’s Christmas Eve in a small mountain train station and four people are waiting for a train that’s stuck in snow hundreds of kilometers away. They don’t know each other and each of them must reach their destination as soon as possible. As the hours pass and the train gets more and more delays, Madalina, Cristi, Ozana and Alex share the absurd, the hope, the anger, the despair. Because they are accidentally stuck here. Because no one knows how long it will take. And because it’s Christmas.
