Synopsis

When a train hits a car, rail engineer Tom (Kevin Bacon) forms an unlikely bond with Davey (newcomer Miles Heizer), an 11-year-old boy who survives the carnage. With both having personal troubles before the crash - Tom with his sick wife (Marcia Gay Harden) and Davey with his disturbed mother - the pair have more in common than at first meets the eye. Alison 'daughter of Clint' Eastwood shows that directing talent runs in the family with this splendidly acted tearjerker.
