The Storyline of the series
The 2013 movie Snowpiercer’s main cast members included Chris Evans and Octavia Spencer. Although with limited release the film was able to secure good returns. It depicted the lives of people who must live in a train that travels around the world for their survival because the outside world is unsuitable for living. The people live inside the train called the “Snowpiercer” powered by perpetual motion technology. The people on the train do not live peacefully because of class differences, political rifts, and other issues that are prevalent here.
Now the TV series of Snowpiercer is set seven years after the movie ending where the train encounters a major avalanche explosion because of devious minds. But this is not the end of Snowpiercer because the class divisions are still present in the train and the important characters such as reserved prisoner Layton Well are stuck by the injustice and will begin a revolution.
