Steel Life is journey across Peru aboard a freight train; an incredible descent from the Andes, at an altitude of 4,800 metres, to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Set amidst staggering scenery, Steel Life alternates between a road movie peppered with encounters and the social x-ray of a country victim of the neo-colonial system.
