Hell on Wheels: S5 Vol. 1
All roads lead to hell
All Roads Lead to Hell...
HELL ON WHEELS tells the epic story of post-Civil War America, focusing on Confederate Soldier Cullen Bohannon, who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who have murdered his wife. His journey takes him west to 'Hell on Wheels', a dangerous, raucous melting pot of a town that services the construction of the first transcontinental railroad.
In Season 5, Bohannon finds himself a stranger in a strange land: Truckee, California. Home to the headquarters of the Central Pacific railroad, this rough mountain railroad town teems with thousands of Chinese workers who are foreign in language, culture and traditions. While grappling with the challenges of corralling his new workforce, Cullen leads the Central Pacific’s herculean effort to tunnel through the Sierra Nevada mountains, sometimes achieving only inches a day in the race to complete America’s first Transcontinental Railroad.
