"In this influential silent classic, set in a sprawling city of the future, a workers' uprising threatens to destroy the metropolis. In the 21st century, society has been divided into two classes- the lowly workers who live underground , and they wealthy ruling class who indulge in a decadent existence in the towering skyscrapers above. Until one day, when a member of the ruling class, lured below ground by an attractive female worker, is horrified by what he witnesses. He endeavors to help improve their plight, but a mad scientist and his evil robots are enlisted to thwart the young man and crush the labor reform efforts."--Container.
