‘Future, the year 2000. In the super-city of Metropolis society is divided into two social classes. The rich, who have power and mass-production means, surrounded by luxury, open spaces and gardens. However, the workers are forced to live under dramatic conditions imprisoned in an underground ghetto, where the industrial heart of the city is. One day, Freder, all-mighty Joh Fredersen’s son, the man in charge of the city, finds out about the rough working aspects of workers after falling in love with María, a woman who comes from a humble background and is worshipped among the low classes since she preaches about love and feelings. Ferder warns his father about the possibility of the workers’ riot.’
