Summary note
"In the year 2031 on an Earth engulfed in a second ice age. The only remaining survivors live on the perpetually moving train Snowpiercer, which has developed a cruel, class-stratified system of its own, leading to the poor passengers in the back of the train to plan a revolt. On Snowpiercer, passengers in first class live in comfort and luxury, while those in the back wallow in hunger, poverty and fear under the iron thumb of Mason, the train's steely second-in-command. Led by Curtis, a group of insurgents from the back risk it all to push to the front and seize control of the Engine. A different world with different dangers awaits them in every compartment, and at the end is the train's mysterious creator Wilford and the many secrets he holds."..Yesasia.com.
