The Bauhaus, founded in Weimar in 1919 as a school of art, design and architecture, wanted to improve people's everyday lives and society as a whole through a functional, aesthetically appealing design of all areas of life. The film sheds light on the early years  of the Bauhaus under its founder Walter Gropius, and examines the history and development of the Bauhaus after it was closed in 1933 under pressure from the National Socialists and many Bauhaus teachers and graduates went into exile. In addition, the film shows how the impulses of the Bauhaus continue to have an international impact today.
