The American West, December 1892: a vagrant wins a train ticket to Wyoming in a game of poker. However, the train is overbooked with danger. There are cattle ranchers, both rich and poor, aboard, who still have open wounds from a recent range war. As well, there is a disturbed killer being transported by marshals to Wyoming to face trial for his involvement in the conflict. When the train derails during a blizzard in Nebraska, the passengers face the looming specter of death, which becomes more real when the killer is found mysteriously dead. But the killer's death is only the beginning, as more and more passengers are found brutally murdered. As tensions rise, it is up to the vagrant and his new friend, the investigative reporter Nellie Bly, to find out the truth before another range war is triggered.
