The film tells a story focused on the rail service system of the 1980s in Ghana. A couple, Boi and Atswei, who live in Puna, are engaged in giving birth to their first baby in Akete, their hometown. Very close to delivery, the couple misses the train, the only means of transport from the periphery to the city. In their rush to get there, they compound their situation with a wrong decision and find themselves in the middle of nowhere. Now, will the couple make it in time for the delivery or are they at risk of losing both the baby and the mother?
