Athol Fugard brings a powerful true story of redemption
for its San Francisco/Bay Area premier in The Train Driver.
Set in Fugard's native South Africa, the drama follows Roelf,
a white train driver devastated by unwittingly killing a black mother
and child who stepped in front of his train. Searching for answers
and solace, Roelf travels to the township's graveyard and meets a
black gravedigger named Simon, whose job is to bury the "nameless."
Through their unlikely friendship, Roelf tries to come to grips with
his guilt and shame.
