    • Synopsis
    • The night before Christmas, just right before the Hungarian-Serbian border – which also serves as the border of the European Union
      - a train brakes. The passangers are keen to nd out why they have stopped in the middle of nowhere. By the time the wave of guessing
      reaches the dining car, people already talk about armed immigrants. As there is a young Arab passanger, Ali, in the dining area, the people
      turn against him quickly.
      Nearby two night-watch volunteers from a village are on duty. They also nd the stopping train suspicious especially when using their
      binoculars they spot the growing tension and ght in the dining car of the train. They clearly sense a possible terror attack so in order
      to isolate the focal point of the tension, they warily detach the dining car from the rest of the train.
      The six passangers of the dining car notice the receding train from them just as the two men lurking around their car. They also come to the
      obvious conclusion that they are victims of a terror attack. In the meantime the two night-watchers outside are getting sure that the people
      in the dining car have been captivated by terrorists.
      The mutual misunderstanding creates more and more bizarre situations and panic starts escalating. The judgment of Ali divides the
      passangers into two parties betweeen which the conict deepens quickly. Although they should focus on the possible danger from
      outside, they only deal with bringing up arguments from personal matters to global isssues just to be able to hate each other more
      and more until their conict leads to assault.
      In the meantime an express train is approaching towards the dining car, so beside a terror attack, the night-watchers must avoid a fatal
      accident as well. Soon the misundersanding comes to light and the passengers feel ashamed: they have hurt each other for nothing.
      Now together in union they try to avoid the fatal catastrophy.
      By the dawn of Christmas, the never existing terror attack eventually comes to an end.
