Charlotte (9) and Frank, her father arrive at the railway station. Frank is to return Charlotte to her mother, his ex-wife. When a train arrives, Frank and Charlotte hesitantly board it. Frank is ill at ease due to the chaos at the poetry festival he organizes and he would prefer to avoid confronting his ex-wife because he will be late. Frank goes to the men’s room in order to get some water to help swallow his tranquilizing tablets. Upon his return, Charlotte has vacated her seat. Frank traverses the train and inquires with several passengers whether they’ve seen his little daughter. None of them remembers having laid eyes on her and Frank starts to distrust everyone but himself. The people from the poetry festival keep bothering him and in the mean time the train is driving progressively faster. On top of that, it seems to be riding in circles. He thinks he sees Charlotte again and runs after her. A child’s chocolate hand imprint on the train door makes him conclude that his daughter has fallen off the train. Grief stricken, he uses his cell phone to call his ex-wife Ellen. Ellen doesn’t understand what’s wrong. Charlotte is with her, waiting for her dad to pick her up. Then we find ourselves looking at the miniature train she's playing with. It’s riding around in circles. We recognize the little railway station and details of the scenery. Charlotte looks up at her mum, smiling in a somewhat sinister way..
