Oddball, sci-fi, thriller mash up. Somewhat similar to ALPHAVILLE in it's setting. World famous director Fassbinder steps in front of the camera in what would be his final film. He plays a chubby, scruffy, fashion-challenged detective in future Germany. A society where everything is owned and controlled by a giant corporate-like collective. The collective want him to investigate bomb threats by an underground terrorist group.
