What is Snowpiercer about?

After an attempt to stop global warming via climate engineering catastrophically backfires, creating a new ice age in 2014, the remnants of humanity have taken to a circumnavigational train, the Snowpiercer, run by recluse transportation magnate Wilford (Ed Harris). By 2031, the passengers on the train have become segregated, with the elite in the extravagant front cars and the poor in squalid tail compartments controlled by armed guards.
Urged by his father-figure Gilliam (John Hurt), Curtis (Chris Evans) and his second-in-command Edgar (Jamie Bell) lead the tail passengers in a revolt after they realize the guards' weapons have no ammunition. They free Namgoong, a captive security specialist, who insists that his clairvoyant daughter Yona (Ko Asung) is freed as well. Namgoong helps the tail army progress forward, but they soon end up in a standoff with guards with axes, overseen by Minister Mason (Tilda Swinton). In the ensuing fight, Curtis has to choose between saving Edgar or capturing Mason. Curtis makes a difficult call to capture Mason in order to use her as a bargaining chip to end the battle. The tail army stays back, holding the guards captive, while Curtis takes Mason, Namgoong, Yona, skilled fighter Grey (Luke Pasqualino), and Tanya (Octavia Spencer) and Andrew (Ewen Bremner) toward the front of the train. They are unaware that Franco, loyal to Mason, escapes the tail army to rally more guards.
Curtis' group travels through the first of several opulent cars. Namgoong and Yona recognize a landmark outside and consider that the ice may be thawing. They eventually reach a schoolroom, where a teacher is indoctrinating the children on Wilford's greatness, just before they open eggs to celebrate the eighteenth "New Year", each of which has marked one circumnavigation of the Earth. The teacher uses this as a distraction to attack and kill Andrew before Grey kills her. In the tail section, Franco uses the distraction to kill the tail army and capture Gilliam. Franco sends a live feed to the television in the classroom as he executes Gilliam; Curtis, in return, kills Mason. Curtis' group moves on, but Franco soon catches up to them. Tanya and Grey are killed after fighting Franco, who is then seemingly killed by Curtis and Namgoong. The two along with Yona continue onward.
