This film traces the origin and development of the movement in Zürich, New York, Paris, Berlin and Cologne, tells of the role played by the poet Tristan Tzara and others and includes interviews with some of the artists involved at the time: Max Ernst, Gabrièle Picabia Buffet, Hans Richter, Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray.
