Tommy Germain leaves his home in Cameroon for post-apartheid South Africa. Expecting to find a new El Dorado for Black Africans, he quickly realizes there is no such place; instead, he is sold into slavery and is set to work in the diamond fields of Angola. The hope of participating in a post-racial panacea is quickly shattered, and Tommy’s dream to reach his El Dorado becomes a distant memory. This is an astonishing portrait of strength and resilience forged through fire.
