Synopsis of “Train Mission” without any spoilers
Michael, a former police officer and family-minded protagonist, spends his days on the commuter train to work every day. One day, he meets a woman named Joanna on the train. She told Michael that she would give him $100,000 if he could find a “pudding” among the passengers on the train and attach a GPS to their bag.
It was Michael who responded appropriately without dealing with her, but he found $25,000 in advance from the place she said. As he gets off the train with a bare face, the child on board is handed an envelope containing his wife’s wedding ring as a “warning”. Feeling that his family is in danger, he ends up looking for a stranger on a commuter train, without knowing what to do…
The Six Pudding Candidates [Spoiler alert]
When Joanna tells him that Pudding is getting off the train at Cold Spring Station, Michael looks at the ticket stub plugged into the back of the seat to narrow down the candidates, and the person sitting in the seat with the scissors in number 7 is likely to get off at Cold Spring Station.
If you exclude his familiar faces who have been commuting on the same train for 10 years, there were six seats that fit the criteria.
After borrowing a phone call from Tony, a familiar passenger, Michael turns to a colleague from his days as a cop for help. Then he learns from the other party that the case reported to be a suicide is actually a murder case and that the witness is Pudding. He then receives a phone call from Joanna demanding and threatening him. Michael made little contact with the candidates and gathered information.
First, he catches sight of the man who came to sit in the second seat, which was empty. I’ll have to wrestle with the man, but I can’t be sure. Later, he was found dead and found to be an FBI agent.
Jackson is excluded because the ticket he has is a commuter pass. Oliver, a hitman hired by Joanna, falls overboard from a train after a struggle with Michael. Vince got off at the one station in front of Cold Spring. Excluding Gwen, who was carrying a fake ID for her delinquent boyfriend, it turns out that nurse Eva isn’t a pudding either.
There, Michael is reminded of something. The seat Vince was in was originally occupied by another passenger….. A passenger named Sophia, who had shifted seats, was reading the novel The Scarlet Letter while listening to music in a corner seat. Michael is convinced that she is “Pudding” because the main character’s name is Hector Pudding.
Once again Joanna calls and threatens to “kill the pudding, or I’ll kill them all,” and Michael tries to work with the conductor to stop the train. However, the train lost control due to a bomb planted in the brakes.
The conductor says that if a train passes through Cold Spring Station at breakneck speed and enters the big curve beyond it, it will surely overturn. So they gathered passengers in the last carriage and managed to separate themselves from the front carriage.
