Freder Fredersen is the son of Joh Fredersen, who reigns over the great city of Metropolis. Freder is surprised to discover his lifestyle has been built on the unseen but backbreaking labor of an entire class of unseen workers who tend the machines that make the city run, and he descends to the subterranean levels of Metropolis in an effort to understand their lives. In 1981 Giorgio Moroder began a three-year endeavor to restore the science fiction classic Metropolis.
