    • Synopsis
    • Train to Adulthood is a coming-of-age story about three youngsters who find an escape from life’s ordeals by working on the Budapest Children’s Railway. While they enjoy playing at being responsible adults on the Train, at home they are forced to mature abruptly.
      The Children’s Train is a metaphor used by the filmmakers to explore present-day Hungary: a country faltering in its political and social transition, where community ties have been broken and social institutions collapsed.
