    • Synopsis
    • A famous TV-reporter (Gian Maria Volonte) comes to a remote village of Switzerland to interview the famous scientist Henri Kremer (Heinz Bennent) about his solution to the problem of world hunger.
      As their dialogue seems stuck, the reporter meanwhile investigates about Italian immigrant worker Mario Ricci's mysterious death, thus exposing the xenophobia and violence that plague this apparently peaceful, clean village.
      The director of “The Lacemaker” invites us here not to neglect our own local problems when trying to solve more complex world issues.
