A murder mystery that uncovers the true suspects are diamonds.
23 August 2009 | by nathan-yeoSee all my reviews

This is a movie about the Diamond industry. About the power and seduction and corruption they have on everyone they come into contact with. it is not a documentary, and it doesn't try to encompass it all. The four main players are a senator trying to uncover why her daughter was killed, in an African "Hell-Hole". A young turk, rips his fathers diamond company out from underneath him with his aggressive ways. A young ground scientist tries to make up for getting crew killed by finding another mine. A young boy with a fist full of diamonds tries to smuggle them to their destination. All lives intersect all lines are crossed. A lot of people get their come-up-ance. it doesn't try to solve world problems or bring new questions. This is the way it is, it just tells a story, and a damn good one at that.
