On the train, life pulls into uncommon focus. In the space between stations, where “real life” is suspended, a peculiar atmosphere of contemplation and community develops. To some passengers, the train is flight and salvation, to others reckoning and loss. But for all, it is a place for personal reflection and connecting with others they may otherwise never know. In Transit delves the hearts and minds of everyday passengers aboard Amtrak’s Empire Builder, the busiest long-distance train route in America. View trailer. Candid and direct, the film unfolds as a series of interconnected vignettes, ranging from overheard conversations to moments of deep intimacy, in which passengers share their fears, hopes, and dreams. As the Empire Builder crisscrosses the country, passing through urban centers, oil fields, vast plains, and towering mountains, a loving portrait of America emerges, in its full human and natural beauty.
