Scene from "Akteur" (photo © 2006 Krein Simon Schloesser)

The stage actor Peter Novan is an avid observer of his environment. But most of the time he just sees what he wants to see. And although he seems obsessed with the theater, he has never been trusted with playing a leading role. Then he gets to play Macbeth - King by murder. The day of the premiere arrives and Peter is less in shape than ever. Some people just function properly with their back against the wall.
