In una megalopoli del XXI secolo dominata dal dittatore Frederson, gli operai, che vivono nei sotterranei in stato di semischiavitù, ripongono la loro fiducia nella mite Maria, di cui si innamora Freder, figlio del dittatore. Per rompere l'unità degli operai, Frederson impone all'inventore-mago Rothwang di costruire un robot sosia di Maria, che semini discordia, ma questo incita gli operai alla rivolta e alla distruzione. Toccherà alla vera Maria e a Freder riconciliare le parti, ponendo le basi per un nuovo ordine sociale. (Mereghetti)
