Synopsis


A young man works as a shunter. He lives in a solitary house by the tracks. One day a mouse comes to his house. He feeds it and they become friends. Days pass. A beautiful female passenger comes off a train one day and steps foot into the shunter’s house. He offers her a place to stay the night and falls in love with her, but she is terrified of the mouse. A few times she is so frightened that she screams out loud. When this happens at breakfast, the shunter loses it and takes the mouse, places it by the shunt, throws it in and pushes. The mouse is dead. When the woman sees it through the window, she quickly packs and runs off to a train. As the shunter switched the shunt off schedule, the trains crash. The shunter remains alone on the lines.
