The city of Metropolis is home to a Utopian society where the wealthy residents, among them Freder Fredersen, live a carefree life. But when Freder follows a beautiful woman with a group of children, he is horrified to find an underground world of workers running the machinery that keeps the above-ground Utopian world functioning. Freder wants to help the workers and give them a better life but faces opposition from his father, Joh, the founder and master of Metropolis.
