Heldenkanzler is based on a true story.
Vienna 1993 – Parliament: Many delegates are talking. A tiny man lifts himself up on the speaker’s desk. It is Engelbert Dollfuss. The other parliamentarians make fun of him loudly. A fight breaks out in the parliament. The tiny man escapes from the troubled parliament and flees into the next cinema. As he recognizes that even a small Austrian man rides highly successful on the wave of victory in Germany, he also decides to take power.
