In a post-apocalyptic world, or what’s remaining of it after a world war and glaciation, the few survivors find themselves in Earth’s last remaining train, named Snow Piercer. The train continues to move following a circle in a desert of snow and ice. And, while the poorest live in pathetic conditions, suffering the cold and hunger in the “Tail Section,” those living in the “Front Section” lust, party and live like Kings. The Snow Piercer continues to travel in this vicious circle, but one day one of the “Tail Section” passengers decides to change the status quo, discovering all the secrets behind Earth’s last train. SNOWPIERCER is based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige.”
