Doctor Anu Kantele leads an international study to develop a vaccine against diarrhea. Vaccine could save lives of children in poor countries and reduce usage of antibiotics. By this, it could even help in fight against world-threatening super bacteria. 800 Finnish tourists travel to a West African village to be vaccination guinea pigs. Poor villagers rouse their need to help, and financial aid by Finns causes friction in the small community. Super B deals with problematics of helping and with antibiotic resistance that is a major global threat.
