Synopsis
For more than 140 years medical devices have been built in Tuttlingen, a small town in rural Swabia. An extraordinary tradition of craftsmanship, ranging from small family enterprises to large companies with a leading position on the world market. The film portrays a region where much of what has been a defining feature for more than a century is bound to change withing a few years. In the context of global economy, Tuttlingen is closely linked to Sialkot, Pakistan - another centre of medical technology.
Sialkot√ęs production facilities are likley to soon be capable of competing for market leadership. The film collects impressions from both places, documenting similarities and differences in the context of globalization.
