YesAsia Editorial Description

From the producer of the Always: Sunset on Third Street series comes another heartwarming film that brings a simpler life to its audience. Director Nishikori Yoshinari (A Heart of the Sea) completes his trilogy of films set in his native Shimane Prefecture with Railways. The quiet drama follows a successful company executive - played by Nakai Kiichi (The Magic Hour) - who decides to leave the luxuries of urban life behind and live for himself by pursuing a new career as a train conductor. As expected from such a story, Railways is a gentle, charming, and a little old-fashioned film that might inspire a few people to leave their chaotic, stressful lives behind and change for the better.

Hajime (Nakai Kiichi) is the middle manager at an electronics maker with a wife (Takashima Reiko) who pays too much attention to her shop and a college-age daughter who pays too little attention to her future. When his mother suffers a stroke, Hajime reluctantly returns to Shimane with his daughter for a visit. After several events there make him contemplate his life from a new perspective, he decides to quit his job in Tokyo, move back to his rural village for good, and pursue his boyhood dream of becoming a train conductor. Surprised at being accepted at his age, Hajime initially finds great pleasure and inner peace with his new career, but a life-changing decision like that doesn't come without a price.

Normal Edition Blu-ray comes with an audio commentary by the director, producer, and technical advisor, stage events, trailers, a montage of Shimane Prefecture scenery in high definition, and a booklet.
