More Info:

Hundreds of feet beneath the jungles of Ghana, thousands of sweat-soaked miners squeeze through tiny crevices to dig the raw gold that feeds an insatiable global industry. Considered outlaws by the government, these "galamsey" have two options-either get rich quick or die trying. As the surging gold rush draws both local prospectors and eager foreign corporations to the impoverished West-African nation, struggling families must decide whether to put their kids in school or take a gamble by sending them to the dangerous pits. Through the dramatic stories of teens Justice and Maxwell, The Money Stone takes an intimate look at the stark choices some children face in hopes of finding a better future.
