In the city of Metropolis, in the year 2000, the workers live confined in an underground ghetto, where the industrial heart of the city is placed, and from where they can not scape. But, encourage by a robot, they rebel against the intellectual class in the power and threaten to destroy the outer city. Freder, the son of the governor of Metropolis, and Maria, a girl of humble origins, would try to avoid destruction by appealing to feelings and love.
