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.
