Storyline

The story of Minor Keith and the construction of the Costa Rican Atlantic Railway in the 19th Century. A seemingly small infrastructure project, laying one hundred miles of track cost the lives of over 4000 men, took nearly 20 years to complete, and bankrupted a nation. It resulted in the formation of the United Fruit Company, the largest agricultural enterprise in the world, and the most controversial US company ever to operate in Latin America. UFCO and Minor Keith are still considered the embodiment of US Imperialism by those in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
