Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey), an unlucky businessman, teams up with geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) to find gold deep in the uncharted jungles of Indonesia (Borneo).
The movie is inspired by the true story of a modern-day prospector who, desperate for a lucky break, teams up with a similarly eager geologist in order to find gold in deepest, darkest Indonesia — sparking an adventure that goes right through to the boardrooms of Wall Street. It is based on the Bre-X mining scandal of 1997.
