'Diamonds for everyone.'

That's what fifteen-year-old Patson Moyo hears when his family arrives in the Marange diamond fields, leaving his previous life, school and friends behind with hopes for a better life. Soon Patson is working in the mines along with four friends in the Gwejana Syndicate teen diamond miners, secretly pooling their profits and hoping to find the priceless stone that will change everything. But when the government's soldiers come to Marange, Patson's world is shattered.

Set against the backdrop of President Mugabe's brutal regime in Zimbabwe, this is the story of a young man who succumbs to greed, but finds his way out through a transformative journey to South Africa in search of his missing sister, in search of freedom, and in search of himself.
