In the early 30s, as it was being built, the metro construction workers, headed up by a brigade of writers, were summoned to write “The Story of the Moscow Metro”.
Based on these partly unpublished writings and in the spirit of this “literary utopia”, subsequently wiped out in the 1937-38 purges, our film recounts the construction of the first lines of the world’s most beautiful metro.
