Riggan Thomson erhofft sich durch seine Inszenierung eines ambitionierten neuen Theaterstücks am Broadway, neben anderen Dingen, vor allem eine Wiederbelebung seiner dahin siechenden Karriere. Zwar handelt es sich um ein ausgesprochen tollkühnes Unterfangen - doch der frühere Kino-Superheld hegt grösste Hoffnungen, dass dieses kreative Wagnis ihn als Künstler legitimiert und jedermann, auch ihm selbst, beweist, dass er kein abgehalfterter Hollywood-Star ist. Doch während die Premiere des Stücks unaufhaltsam näher rückt, wird Riggans Hauptdarsteller durch einen verrückten Unfall bei den Proben verletzt und muss schnell ersetzt werden. Auf den Vorschlag von Hauptdarstellerin Lesley und auf das Drängen seines besten Freundes und Produzenten Jake hin engagiert Riggan widerwillig Mike Shiner - ein unberechenbarer Typ, aber eine Garantie für viele Ticketverkäufe und begeisterte Kritiken. Bei der Vorbereitung auf sein Bühnendebüt muss er sich nicht nur mit seiner Freundin, Co-Star Laura, und seiner frisch aus der Entzugsklinik kommenden Tochter und Assistentin Sam auseinandersetzen, sondern auch mit seiner Ex-Gattin Sylvia, die gelegentlich vorbeischaut, um die Dinge in ihrem Sinn zu richten
