Serra Pelada's discovery in 1979 precipitated one of the world's largest contemporary gold rushes. In a matter of days miners could make hundreds of thousands of dollars as chunks of gold, kilos in weight, were found. Set in the north of Brazil, this beautifully shot documentary tells some of the mountain's secret stories and reveals how some people found fortune or disgrace in one of the biggest gold rush of the twentieth century.
