114 min. x 1 ep.|1 episode

February. The story begins with a man and a woman riding the Twilight Express. Keisuke and Chie are on a last trip together before an agreed-upon breakup. Though Chie had a family, she had long admired Keisuke in secret until the day when she could no longer contain it. But Keisuke, too, loved her and looked over her with quiet strength. Here on the Twilight Express, however, time passes slowly. The two melt into each other’s company as the beautiful snow-blown winter landscape outside rolls gently past the window. There is the elegant Salon de Nord with its wide observation windows, the dining car “Diner Pleiades,” and the special suite room where true feelings can collide without reserve. Until now, Keisuke and Chie have been unable to break the hold they’ve had on each other. But now they have some time, and a lot will need to be said and resolved between their departure in Osaka until their early morning arrival in the northern city of Sapporo.
