What Is the Story of The Train Driver?
Set in South Africa and based on true events, The Train Driver is the story of a troubled white train driver named Roelf who arrives at an unmarked graveyard. Roelf asks Simon, a black gravedigger, to help him search for the grave of a woman and her baby—but Roelf isn’t sure of the woman’s name. As the visitor becomes more and more distraught, he finally reveals that he had accidentally killed the woman and her child as they ran onto the tracks in front of his train. As his story unfolds, Roelf struggles to come to terms with his own grief while Simon, silent and stoic, listens.
