Of Rocks And Needles: A Documentary On Climbing And Medical Aid

For the past decade the German doctor Volker Schoeffl and his wife Isabelle have been coming to Laos. The country, squeezed in between Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia is one of the poorest in the world. Once a year the two doctors perform difficult operations, teach and support the local team and bring new equipment to the hospital. Not only do they work though. Both are astonishing climbers and so they spend their free time setting up new routes all across the country.
