Lux - Krieger des Lichts

Lux - Krieger des Lichts

Deutschland 2016/2017, Spielfilm

Inhalt

A film team accompanies the real-life superhero LUX (in real-life shy nobody Torsten Kachel) in his everyday fight for a better world. But since his social commitment is not really that spectacular, Jan, the director, can’t find a financer for his project. Eventually, producer Brandt shows some interest, but only on condition that Jan delivers sensational material. After all, a superhero has to be a super hero.

After some hesitation, Jan convinces Lux to concentrate his efforts more on combating organized crime. But his supposed heroic acts fail to materialize. Only when the attractive stripper Kitty asks Torsten for help do things start to look up for Lux. But instead of becoming a hero, he becomes a perpetrator. And suddenly nothing is the same again …
