Until the late ‘70s, one of the most important railway premises of Chile operated in a small town in the South called San Rosendo. Today, only two trains pass during the day, one early in the morning, which stops a while at the old station and takes passengers, and another at the end of the afternoon, carrying wood and fuel, crossing the town without stopping.
The film narrates what happens in the town between the trains passing: the activities the inhabitants have, the spaces they use and the routes they go over. Small gestures that show the relation between the man and the landscape in a place that is disappearing.
