:: PLOT

A Hollywood producer bought an historic XIX century locomotive in Uruguay to use in his next film. The owner of the train, a young and shrewd businessman, announces the event, showing off his shiny old “Number 33” to the TV cameras. Although the event creates great happiness and pride in many Uruguayan, it doesn’t seem to have the same effect on the veteran members of the “Friends of the Rail Association”. In fact, they are convinced that locomotive “Number 33” shouldn’t be sold to foreigners because it represents the historical memory of Uruguay. So they decide to steal it. It’s the beginning of an adventure that follows the old and abandoned routes of the nation’s tracks. Followed by the local authorities, the funny group of rebels succeeds in their plan, even thanks to the population of the small and big towns they meet on the way. But Uruguay is a small country, and the train will soon run out of track.
