Sonia Nazario 's best-selling novel, "Enrique's Journey", also depicts the process and obstacles of train migration. While this book mainly focuses on the journey of one person, it speaks for the thousands of other migrants who have struggled to reunite with loved ones. Nazario describes the emotion and difficulty experienced by entire families who are separated by the necessity to become more economically stable. The dangers of crossing Central America and Mexico by train are described in explicit detail as migrants of all ages face street gangs, corrupt officials, hunger, exhaustion, discrimination, poor weather, and deadly trains.
"Train Station" follows a character known only as "Person in Brown" after he/she misses a train. From there, the directors take Brown on a fantastical journey and throughout it illustrate the infinite possibilities that exist when a single event interrupts a person's timeline. Each decision Brown makes leads to a different scenario, each one told by a different director. A record number of directors from every part of the world worked together over the internet to outline, write and create the film. Over 40 actors and actress, of various ages, races and backgrounds play the single character. Every time "Person in Brown" makes a new choice, we cut to a new city and follow a new actor, but the story continues on.
