Every day, 18-year-old Nori walks to the Bauta station to listen, watch, and feel the vibrations of the passing trains.
 His playful imagination leads us through the space as we witness his obsession and sensory experience of arrival and departure. A glimpse of adolescence in the Cuban countryside.

I grew up near a railroad track and would fall asleep nightly to the sound of trains passing. To this day the sound and vibrations of the trains bring me a sense of profound calm. – Nisha Platzer, Director
