When filming an entry for a film competition a young group of friends witness a massive train crash that appears to be an accident. Immediately after the crash people start disappearing from town, lights start flickering, dogs go missing and they begin to wonder if it wasn't an accident afterall. The story takes place in 1979 and it has a retro feel to it. The acting is great, the storyline is intriguing, and the moments of comedy between the kids are a great addition that don't take away from the mysterious storyline.
