Synopsis

In the far North of Burma, a golden stream is increasing its strength, the rumours of the new “EL Dorado” spreads all over the country. Women are at the top of this golden stream, sellers at the market or house wife one day, rich woman the next. The documentary is about this women, some of them have made fortunes, and others are only rich in their dreams. Their stories constitute the central narration of the film. They talk about what moved them to leave their jobs and the dynamic of their lives at the river: the type of tackle they use to work, the shanty towns were they live, the parasites which torture them, and the gold dealers who buy their treasure or change for precious stones.
