Countless people pass through the station and cross it, whether they come from the Paris suburbs, provincial France or abroad. The film, like the station, is the locus of fleeting encounters in which each person relates his or her life in a few words before taking a train and vanishing. In it the crowd of travellers comes to life through intersecting stories, while globalisation forges destinies subjected to geography and the economy.
