Whole Again
常滑エピテーゼ

©NagoyaTV
A small factory in Nagoya makes artificial breasts and artificial appendages for patients who’ve succumbed to cancer or been involved in
horrific accidents. One woman was badly burnt in a fiery car crash and the documentary follows her progress as the lifelike epitheses
allow her to live an increasingly normal life. Kazumi Maeda, wife of the factory owner, is the driving force behind the new direction of
the former pottery mold-maker.

愛知県常滑市で陶器の「型」を作る会社、マエダモールドは10年前、新規事業としてエピテーゼ(人工部位)の製造に目を付けた。精巧な「型」の技術を生かし、乳がん患者のための人工乳房や、けがで失った耳たぶなど、様々なエピテーゼを作っている。失った体の一部のカタチを取り戻すことで、心境にも変化が現れる。ものづくりにかける職人たちの思いと、エピテーゼによって生きがいを見出した女性たちの姿を描く。
