1982. We are in the middle of the shooting of the action thriller »Coolhaze«. The despotic, yet successful director Blasius "Buggy" Parmalat envisions a movie between cinema blockbuster and sophisticated avant-garde film. Charles Bronson is in the title role, Brandenburg becomes New York, and the horses turn into two motorcycles which Coolhaze wants to bring to New Jersey. When the corrupt policeman Coby Burner, Coolhaze's high school rival, confiscates the bikes, the righteous used car dealer fights back so determinedly that the private dispute turns into a merciless feud on the streets of New York. Just like the plot, so does the film shooting get out of hand. Parmalat directs so ruthlessly that it doesn’t take long for the atmosphere to be completely poisoned. When he starts to humiliate the entire team, things get worse. Who is going to lose it first? Will there be a showdown between Bronson and his director?
Studio Braun interweaves Charles Bronson's vigilante thriller »A Man Sees Red« with Heinrich von Kleist's revenge epic »Michael Kohlhaas«. At the heart of the play are a jazz big band who whip the action through the evening in the style of big action-movie soundtracks.
