[edit] Information

Documentary about Bombay's vast suburban rail network, which serves six-and-a-half million commuters every day. As Bombay's population swells by tens of thousands each week, the railway and the people whose lives revolve around it struggle to cope with the pressure and the peaktime 'super-dense crush load'. From the train driver to the illegal hawker and the homeless shoe-shine boy, each has a story to tell about this remarkable railway system, often described as the lifeline of India.

[edit] Pressures

The strain of transporting the railway's millions of passengers is demonstrated in the tales of a number of its workers, including driver OP Chaturvedi, who has run over about 70 people during his long service.

[edit] Dreams

Follow the dreams of railway employees such as Mumtaz Kaz, India's first female train driver, who has to find a wife for her brother and get him married in just eight weeks - all while working full-time.
