It is said that when America began its westward territorial expansion, every mile of train track laid down cost the life of a Chinese migrant worker; moreover, the military stood guard along the lines to keep the Indians away. Mixing fictional depictions with real-life documentation, the film shows trains racing past ramshackle forts and barren deserts as a waltz plays on, with the desolate scenery contrasting with the tourists’ smiling faces.
