Diamonds are among the world's most precious gems, though few are aware of the sociopolitical ramifications of their trade.  This film provides a glimpse, albeit fictional, into how the jewels affect individuals of varying backgrounds across the world.

The picture's interconnected characters include a greedy son preparing to usurp his father's decades old African diamond mining operation, and a senator's dead daughter who was caught in the crossfire.  Meanwhile in the Canadian Artic a less violent diamond industry is blooming, where a witness to the murder attempts to suppress her memories of the event.
