DOCUMENTARY: A train makes its way through the countryside toward the city. Part
of its load is a refrigerated wagon used for transporting meat to the markets. Inside
the otherwise empty wagon, a man keeps a grim log on the wall, a first-hand account
of death by freezing. Only later it is discovered that the refrigeration unit wasn't
operating. The temperature in the wagon never fell below 68F, yet the man dutifully
manifests, and records, the symptoms of hypothermia as he dies a needless, painful
death. The story is told using a combination of archival and imagined material to
speculate on the man's final hours.
