In the world of the future, Freder and his friends enjoy a life of ease and pleasure, unaware that their wonderful Utopia stands on the back of an entire society of hopeless workers who live and die in service to the machines–at least, until a beautiful woman named Maria steps forward in a determined effort to reconnect the hands and head of the machine through her heart.
