Kenny Wells looks after the family business after the sudden death of his father but Washoe Mining rapidly declines him out of business. But ambitious Kenny has a dream, a vivid vision that promises mountains of brilliant and pure gold in the lush jungles of remote Indonesia; an aspiration which the well-known, yet still unlucky geologist Michael Acosta shares. He somehow convinces the eager geologist to become his partner and set off on an adventure deep into uncharted territory, while in the meantime, he would hunt for investors. The risky expedition starts without a single speck of gold or the promise of it on the horizon, disease, and failure will begin to threaten the short-lived dream.
