To "escape" from the coming winter, the railway tycoon launches a passenger train on the round-the-world railway, in which several hundred people travel. The rich and the poor gathered here, dividing into classes, just like in real life. Clashes break out between socially stratified groups of people. The leader of one of the uprisings named Curtis is trying to free his fellows from the prison compartment and get to the train engine and the head carriage, in which the same railroad tycoon named Wilford rides.
