Train to Adulthood is a coming of age story about three children who work passionately at the Children’s Train, a small gauge railway built in 1948 by the communist leaders of Hungary. The sixty-six-year-old wagons still run every day carrying hundreds of thousands of passengers a year. Both in the communist times and today, the Train has been entirely operated by the children themselves for free. We follow 3 young railway workers for whom the Children‘s Train is a refuge, a place where comradeship and order are opposed to the chaos of the outside society. The Train is a metaphor to talk about current day Hungary, offering an insight into the intellectual and emotional development of a generation that will soon become responsible for our fate.
