In order to combat the effects of global warming, many of the nations on Earth have released an element into the atmosphere to cool things down. They do a little too good of a jod, though, and the Earth is sent into a deep freeze, killing everything. Fortunately, one entrepreneur has seen this coming and built an ever-running train capable of sustaining life. Of course, life on the train is broken into the haves and the have-nots. At the front of the train, wealthier survivors have access to everything they need, including many luxuries. The poorer folks crammed into the back get little to nothing, having to make due with little food and even less space. They stage a revolt, led by Curtis. Along their trek to the front of the train, they discover many uncomfortable secrets about the train's resources, runners and class system.
