Five people set out on a journey by train, trying to get away from their nearest and dearest. After the initial period of getting to know one another, the relationship between the passengers intensifies. Suddenly, the train stops. The characters become anxious. The train starts again, but drives backwards in time and space, causing reality to start to disintegrate. One of the characters is the unaware prime mover of the train's energy i.e. its turnaround in time and space. With shock, the characters realise that they have returned to their starting point where the persons they were trying to escape from are waiting for them. They board the train as new travellers on their new journey - into a reflection of that reality which has just come to an end, disintegrated and imploded into itself.
