Plot Summary

Set against the backdrop of a vast, unique and unforgiving landscape, Gold is a taut thriller about greed and the lengths people will go to secure themselves a fortune. When two drifters travelling through the desert stumble across the biggest gold nugget ever found, the dream of immense wealth and greed takes hold. They hatch a plan to protect and excavate their bounty with one man leaving to secure the necessary equipment. The other man remains and must endure the harsh desert climate, preying wolves and intruders, whilst battling the creeping doubt that he has been abandoned to his own fate.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Filming was ravaged by sandstorms to the point filming was almost shut down for a day. Until the idea of strapping a camera to one of the cinematographers backs and "getting the shots" was better than using a fan. Multiple shots of sandstorms in the movie were actual sandstorms filmed by a cinematographer. See more »
Goofs When Efron's character is stabbed by a tree after the dust storm, the branch is stuck in his right side. In a following shot it has moved to his left, and subsequently goes back to the right. The stick then teleports to the other side again. See more »
