It will cost you everything.

An ex-mercenary turned smuggler. A Mende fisherman. Amid the explosive civil war overtaking 1999 Sierra Leone, these men join for two desperate missions: recovering a rare pink diamond of immense value and rescuing the fisherman's son conscripted as a child soldier into the brutal rebel forces ripping a swath of torture and bloodshed countrywide.

Germany German (Deutsch)

Sierra Leone, 1990, Bürgerkrieg: Die bisher völlig verschieden verlaufenen Wege des Diamantenschmugglers Danny Archer und des armen Fischers Solomon Vandy kreuzen sich. Gemeinsam machen sie Jagd auf einen speziellen Diamanten, der ihr ganzes Leben verändern könnte. Für Archer ist er die Möglichkeit das Elend des Krieges hinter sich zu lassen. Vandy könnte er seinen Sohn, der als Kindersoldat im Krieg eingesetzt wird, zurückbringen. Doch sie sind nicht die Einzigen, die den Diamanten suchen. Nicht nur die Rebellen, auch die Spezialeinheit des Oberst, unter dem Danny einst als Söldner für die süd-afrikanische Armee diente, macht den beiden die Diamantenjagd unnötig schwer. Eine glückliche Fügung also, dass die idealistische amerikanische Journalistin Maddy Bowen ihre bitter benötigte Hilfe im Tausch gegen eine exklusive Story über die illegalen Verwicklungen im internationalen Diamantenschmuggel einzutauschen bereit ist…

Blood diamond

Alors qu'il purge une peine de prison pour ses trafics, Archer rencontre Solomon Vandy, un pêcheur d'origine Mende. Arraché à sa famille et forcé de travailler dans les mines diamantifères, ce dernier a trouvé et caché, un diamant rose extrêmement rare. Accompagnés de Maddy Bowen, une journaliste idéaliste, les deux hommes s'embarquent pour un dangereux voyage en territoire rebelle pour récupérer le fameux caillou. Un voyage qui pourrait bien sauver la famille de Salomon et donner à Archer la seconde chance qu'il n'espérait plus.

Blood diamond - Diamanti di sangue

Danny Archer è un ex mercenario della Rhodesia che contrabbanda diamanti durante la guerra civile, scoppiata in Sierra Leone sul finire degli anni Novanta. Arrestato sul confine con la Liberia, finisce in carcere dove incontra Solomon Vandy, un pescatore separato dalla sua famiglia dopo la feroce irruzione dei ribelli del Fronte rivoluzionario nel suo villaggio. Indicato pubblicamente per avere nascosto un diamante di grande caratura, Solomon accende l’interesse di Archer. In cambio della libertà e della promessa di ritrovare la sua famiglia, finita in un campo profughi dove si sono raccolte oltre un milione di persone, Solomon decide di condurre Archer al diamante. Con l’aiuto di Maddy Bowen, una giornalista idealista e appassionata, i due uomini intraprendono un viaggio alla ricerca di un bene più prezioso.
