Kenny Wells is a small-time mining executive desperate for a lucky break. Raised in the business by his father, but struggling to keep it alive amidst the changing economic circumstances of the late 1980s, he teams up with a geologist to attempt to locate gold in the remote jungles of Indonesia. Striking it rich beyond their wildest expectations (and perhaps finding themselves rather out of their depth), they are soon at the mercy of Wall Street executives and corrupt politicians determined to snatch the bounty for themselves. Meanwhile Kenny’s girlfriend tries to protect him from the sharks and ensure he remains grounded when he finds himself in unchartered territory.
