The car was once a symbol of American ingenuity and technological progress. But now production has been outsourced to countries across the world. This film demonstrates the huge impact globalisation is having on an industry and the people who work in it.
In Chennai, India, Boniface works making radiator caps which will end up on a US pick-up truck. For him globalisation is good news. The global car industry has given him a job and great hopes for his future and that of his family.
In West Bromwich, UK, Brian's firm supplies springs and washers to Boniface's company. But Brian sees his business under increasing pressure from companies outsourcing production to India and China. How long before they put him out of business?
In Tennessee, USA, Teresa's company makes the radiators for the pick-up truck - but loses her job because of global competition. "Everybody is competing with everybody," she says. "They are doing what they need to do to survive - but we don't have to like it." But when it comes to global competition, there's one country no one can afford to ignore - China, the new Detroit of the world car industry.
DVD EXTRA: An insider's eye view of global car making.
