In 2014, an attempt to counteract global warming through climate engineering backfires catastrophically, causing another ice age and extinguishing all life. The only survivors are on the Snowpiercer, a massive train traveling on a circumnavigational track created by the transportation magnate and inventor, Wilford. By 2031, elites inhabit the extravagant front cars while the "scum" inhabit the tail in squalid and brutal conditions. Under watch by Wilford's guards, they are brought only gelatinous "protein blocks" to eat. Conspiring with Gilliam, Curtis's mentor and the leader of the tail, and Curtis's second-in-command Edgar, Curtis Everett plans to lead the tail passengers in a revolt that will take them all the way up to the engine, a perpetual motion machine. A woman named Claude and armed guards come to take two small children, Andy and Timmy; claiming that it is for a mere medical exam. Andy's father, Andrew, attempts to fight back, but is punished by Mason by being forced to put his arm into the extreme cold outside the train, effectively amputating it. Enraged, Curtis initiates their plan the next time they are fed. Curtis realizes that the guards have no ammunition, having apparently used all of it in prior tail rebellions. Curtis and the tail passengers easily rout them and take the security and prison cars, seeing daylight for the first time in over a decade.
