Documentary examining one of Japan's biggest train crashes in modern history, which was caused when a driver tried to catch up with a delay of just 80 seconds. On 25 April, 2005, a packed commuter train crashed into an apartment building, killing 107 people. Piecing together personal accounts of those affected by the disaster, and featuring insights from experts and former train drivers, the programme poses a question for a society that equates speed with progress.
