Kevin Bacon and Marcia Gay Harden give soaring performances in Rails & Ties, director Alison Eastwood's moving tale of people in crisis and emotions at the brink. Bacon plays Tom Stark, a train engineer unable to face his wife's (Harden) illness. Then a terrifying railway collision leaves a little boy orphaned. Tom takes the boy into his home and - step by step, strength by strength - learns how to bond with the wife he adores by opening his heart to a boy who needs the security of a devoted family.
