- Synopsis / Plot
- In Metropolis, society is divided in two classes: the rich, who have all the power and all kinds of luxuries and the workers, doomed to work and confined to live in poor conditions. One day, Freder (Alfred Abel), the son of the powerful Joh Fredersen (Gustav Frohlich), the man who is in charge of the whole city, after falling in love with Maria (Brigitte Helm), discovers the hard conditions in which the workers live and warns his father about a possible rebellion.
