In the year 2031 the earth is in the grip of a global, man-made ice age. Humanity is all but extinct, and the last remaining survivors of the catastrophe are the inhabitants of the “Snowpiercer” – a massive train running on a track that spans the globe. The passengers of the train are divided into classes, with the privileged near the front and the poor occupying the rear end. When children go missing, a group of rebels decide to make their way to the front to turn the microcosm of the train on its head. Directed by Bong Joon-ho, SNOWPIERCER is an action-packed and class-conscious science fiction movie.
