Thriller depicts the inner workings of the "blood diamond" trade through the eyes of a fisherman, smuggler, and business associate.

Sierra Leone, 1999: The controversial "blood diamond" trade dominates this impoverished West African nation, inspiring conflicts between rebel forces and helpless locals across the war-torn countryside.
