„As a genre, the Western is a dance on the gravestone of Heroes“. (N. Grob, B. Kiefer)
A Wild West Show inspired the initial situation of Hero. In the script, however, two levels – ’narrative‘ and ’show acts‘ – develop parallel to each other. The Story: A wandering Jew from Brooklyn (in the style of Old Shatterhand) reads, plays and sings his tale from inexperienced greenhorn to hero and legend. His story is a journey through harsh landscapes and harsher encounters. His goal is to find Winnetou, whose image appeared to him in a dream. He is on the hunt for an image, an exotic idea. But things go constantly wrong. And when they finally meet each other, there is bitter disappointment.
