Amid the explosive civil war overtaking 1999 Sierra Leone, these men join for two desperate missions: to recover a rare pink diamond of immense value and rescuing the fisherman's son who was conscripted as a child soldier into the brutal rebel forces ripping a swath of torture and bloodshed across the alternately beautiful and ravaged countryside.
