Based on the novel of the same name by Philip Reeve this is a post-apocalyptic adventure film directed by Christian Rivers. The screenplay is set in a post-apocalyptic steam punk world where entire cities have been mounted on wheels and motorized, and prey on one another.
Hundreds of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, a mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar), emerges as the only one who can stop London — now a giant, predator city on wheels — from devouring everything in its path.
Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan) is a sixteen-year-old Londoner who has only ever lived inside his travelling hometown, and his feet have never touched grass, mud or land. His first taste of the outside comes quite abruptly!
Tom gets in the way of the masked Hester’s attempt to kill Thaddeus Valentine (Hugo Weaving), a powerful man she blames for her mother’s murder, and both Hester and Tom end up thrown out of the moving “traction” city, to fend for themselves, all of their own!
Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), who is actually an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang (Jihae), a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.
