    • Synopsis
    • All is not so serene on the train after all. The tail section of the train swarms with the poor and the starving. The golden front section is home to the few remaining members of the establishment, who enjoy a luxurious life of wine and steak. After 17 years of suffering, tail section leaders Curtis and Gilliam have begun secret planning a revolution. Now
      the day that the people of the tail section rise up against the soldiers’ violent rifles has arrived. Young revolutionary Curtis advances with one goal in mind: to meet Wilford, the creator of the train and keeper of its perpetual engine. Without knowing what unexpected turns lurk on their journey, Curtis and his comrades keep pushing to the front where Wilford awaits.
