‘Megalopolis’ is described as an epic film that explores ideas about the possibility of building a utopian society. The film is supposedly set in a futuristic version of New York that is loosely based on Ancient Rome.

In an interview with GQ, Coppola told Megalopolis is above all about utopia, about the possibility that a better world could be created. Though it sounds dense and cerebral, Coppola told Baron he wants it to be like It’s a Wonderful Life — a movie that people will watch once a year forever.
