Berlin's Deutschlandhalle on 20 November, 1971. The lonesome figure of actor Klaus Kinski appears in the spotlight on an empty stage to recite his own text, «Jesus Christus Erlöser». The performance marks the realisation of a project which had preoccupied him for more than ten years. Peter Geyer's film portrays the actor's attempt - that was to last an entire evening - to recite his text. The first performance ended in tumult. Kinski later wrote in his autobiography: «It's just like two thousand years ago. This mob is as godawful as the Pharisees. And at least they allowed Jesus to finish speaking before they nailed him to the cross.»
