As in many of his previous films, Nestler once more provides a critical view of the rise of the machine age. He uses the small village of Ödenwaldstetten as an example of the changes from manpower to mechanical power. We witness how handicraft and traditional agricultural tools are discarded and replaced by high-tech equipment and assembly line production. Simultaneously, the film takes account of the many commuters who are forced to travel many miles a day to their new workplace.
