In the middle of the Sierra Leone conflict, a Rhodesian mercenary called Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) hears of an enormous pink diamond with Vandy (Djimon Hounsou), a fisherman that was forced to harvest diamonds by the RUF rebels, who frequently terrorize the Mende locals and enslave them.

When the rebels escalate their hostilities, Vandy's son Dia (Kagiso Kuypers) is rounded up by the RUF to serve as a child soldier. They strike a deal with an American journalist, Maddy (Jennifer Connelly), who will help Archer and Vandy reach the RUF conflict area to try and rescue Dia and extract the hidden diamond, in exchange for giving her the inside story about the illicit 'conflict diamond' trade, or blood diamonds...
