Jorge, 21 years old, lives in Santa Maria del Triumpho, in Lima. He is a moto-taxi driver, and dreams to become a mechanic.
He wants a better future for him and his family. That’s why he travel along the Perù to a well known gold mine: La Rinconada.
Someone call this town, the highest town in the world (5300 mt), the new Eldorado. But there are a also a lot of rumors about the dark side of it. Violence, rituals, sacrificies.
An initiatory journey. A one way gold rush.
