Set around the year 2,000 (then a lifetime away in the future), a mammoth city is ruled by the super-efficient industrialist John Fredersen and, on the surface, appears to be a utopian dream with wealthy inhabitants living in palatial apartments set in colossal glass and concrete spires. But inderground it's a diiferent story: armies of slaves work gruelling shifts to maintain the luxurious lifestyles of their masters. The workers, a sub-human species of sluggish creatures, are led by the 'saintly' Maria, who urges them not to rebel but to wait patiently for the arrival of a 'Mediator'. Frederson has Maria kidnapped and orders mad scientist, Rothwang, to create a robot to take her place. His plan is doomed when the evil mechanical Maria incites the massed workers to revolt and destroy everything in sight...
