Documentary which seeks to identify the issues involved in gold extraction and commerce today. It presents both the militants fighting against a nebulous cartel and the actors involved in the network and the market of this sought-after metal. It is a journey behind the scenes of this highly prosperous activity: on one extreme, the glittering windows of jewellery shops and the luxury industry; on the other, the appalling conditions of those cursed by dirty gold. It brings a new perspective to this business and contributes to the fight for more responsible ethics in the gold industry. In Brazil, the film presents a close look to the reality of the Kayapos and Yanomami tribes and their points of view about the gold extraction.
