A cargo of toxic waste from abroad is discovered in a small Bolivian village. The government decides to silence complaints by secretly moving the waste in an old steam train to be thrown across the Chilean border.
An ambitious police captain, an old anarchist train conductor, three policemen and a runaway girl face illegal blockades and confrontations: people from other towns do not want the train with its poisonous cargo crossing their land. The three-day trip turns into three weeks.
The press turns it into a media scandal. The government turns its back on the mission. The train and its passengers are abandoned to their fate in the Bolivian highlands.
Inspired in true events.
