Galamsey - Für eine Handvoll Gold

Galamsey - For a Fistful of Gold

As a young development worker the narrator experienced a gold rush in a small town in Ghana. Some years later he returns to find out what the gold really means for residents of this town. On his journey he meets old friends, arrives at places of destruction and learns about a dangerous magnetism between people and gold. In the small town a bloody conflict broke out between local police and gold miners. Who are profiteers and who are victims in this hunt for glittering stones?
