Train to Aurora's

Train to Aurora’s follows a journey of self-discovery and acceptance of one’s self. Luna, the hero of our story, is a young girl who, essentially, hates everything and everyone. On her way to school, she meets Lucia, seemingly a counterpart of herself… but a bit more childish. She is pink and bright, and colorful, and fun. Luna is numb. Angsty and angry, and frustrated at the world. The two go on an adventure in the train together, becoming an overall learning experience for Luna, where she grows to accept herself.
