Summary "In a remote region of Guinea, West Africa, a desperately poor place with a long connection to gold, a large industrial gold mine has arrived. This program is an elegiac portrait of the changes brought by the mine, and of the universal human desire for a better life. How do local people respond to the opportunities and economic divisions the mine creates? How do the local jobseekers and expatriate staff, attracted by gold and the possibilities it offers, understand one another? In case of difficulties, the mine calls in the military. Conflict over the mine's presence is escalating. The gold will be dug from the ground, but at what cost? This program reveals a world that is changing forever, and portrays intimately the people who are grappling to respond to those changes"--SBS website
