Check out our new website for more incredible documentaries: HD and ad-free.

Set in the sprawling urban capital of Buenos Aires, The Cardboard Train is an amazing story of Argentinian culture and the will to survive. This is a personal story of a young girl and her family adapting to their newly impoverished lives. Instead of commuting to the office, they travel by train as a community of 30,000 to scavenge cardboard from the street, to sell for a few coins. Despite an existence controlled by mafia, the narrative is honest and focuses on their aspirations and everyday life.
