What is the story?
For many, California is a place of new beginnings. But when one young man comes face to face with a life-changing secret that means he's got to leave town quickly, he boards the Coast Starlight Amtrak train in Los Angeles. On the run, he desperately hopes that by the time he reaches Seattle, he'll know if he's made the right choice. For 1000 miles, he and five other fellow passengers reckon with their own choices and life decisions, of what 'could have beens', 'what ifs' and 'what is'. Their lives may seem to have gone off the rails, but compassion and hope run deep in the face of the great unknown.
