Retired train driver agrees to take over military train that goes into frontline zone.

In the last days of World War 2 retired train driver agrees to steer the train that is heading towards the front in the west. Young man, who tries to find the way westward, pretends to be train driver assistant to get on the train. During the way the military guards are killed in ambush, but the train driver refuses to back down and despite the danger drives the train into the frontline zone.

Simple war time story based more on the characters than plot and as war movie average at best. Let’s just say that the authors of original story (Dziewanowski and Pijanowski) withdrew their names from the project when they found out what changes were made to the script.
