    A humdinger of a character study with performances likely to stick with you for a long time, The Station Agent should be one of those little films you remember in a big way.

Synopsis
The story of a photographer, and his wife, a former schoolteacher, who are driving on a pilgrimage to Mashad from Tehran. When their car breaks down and they find themselves stranded in an ancient, crumbling village, the husband encounters the village's sole adult male and self-appointed guardian, who teaches at the local school. As the husband accompanies the man to another town to get a part for the car, his wife, a former teacher, takes over the teaching duties at the school. Although a quiet and reserved woman, she quickly develops a close bond with the women and children of the village, who instinctively notice she is suffering from a personal loss. Her warm and reassuring presence in the classroom brings unexpected humor from the children who live in this strange, deserted place. When a game of hide-and-seek among abandoned trains inspires a mysterious hallucination for the woman, her perception and understanding of the world changes. Neither she, nor the children, will ever be the same.
