V filmu Iskre v času, svetovni računalniški podvig so predstavljena dejstva in osebna pričevanja Janeza Škrubeja in skupine elektrotehnikov, ki so se med prvimi na svetu lotili razvijanja slovenskega in jugoslovanskega računalnika. Gledalci se seznanimo tako z njihovim svetovnim uspehom kot tudi z okoliščinami in pritiski, katerim je bilo podvrženo njihovo inovatorsko delo. Film je pomembno pričevanje iz prezrte in pozabljene zgodovine.
