Galaxy Express

Galaxy Express is a speculative work: sometime in the future, human beings can no longer undo the damage we have inflicted on our home planet. The only chance for survival is in traveling back to the past. When the sun, the Earth, and the centre of the galaxy are perfectly aligned, a train embarks on its journey to the past. Passengers on board are from all walks of life: scientists, industrialists, activists, smugglers… The story is told by a young girl, who has boarded the train, both to remember, and to forget…
