Alois Nebel

Alois Nebel

It is the end of summer 1989. Alois Nebel works as a train dispatcher at a small railway station in the Sudetenland, a mountainous region on the Czechoslovak border. He is a loner who prefers old timetables to people, and he finds the loneliness of the station tranquil - except when the fog rolls in. Then he hallucinates, seeing ghosts and shadows from the dark past of this region, where after WWII harsh revenge was exacted on the German population. Alois cannot get rid of these nightmares and with the help of the railway worker Wachek, he eventually ends up in a sanatorium. After a while Alois gets better and leaves the sanatorium, but things have changed outside.
