A railway station in the middle of nowhere. David is looking for his girlfriend, Willa. They were on their way to their own wedding, when an accident made them stuck at the small railway station. Now Willa is missing and none of the other fellow passengers know where she is. Although the next train is so supposed to come any minute, David leaves the railway station to search for Willa… For only one dollar Stephen King offers his short stories to film students all around the world. We took this chance and picked the most beautiful and romantic Dollar-Baby: “Willa”.
