Plot Summary: In a chaotic, civil war-ridden Sierra Leone of the late 1990s, a South African mercenary named Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) is searching for a second chance he never thought he would have. While in prison for smuggling, he learns of a simple fisherman named Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) and his remarkable find. Apparently, while being forced to work in the diamond fields, Vandy discovered a rare and priceless pink diamond. The fisherman, knowing the value of what he had stumbled into, has hidden the precious stone. The two menís fates soon intertwine as Danny needs the stone to settle a conflict with the local diamond-mining syndicate and Solomon needs it to help save his son, who had been forced into a rebel force known as the Revolutionary United Front army. Together, with the help of an idealistic American journalist named Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), the men trek across rebel territory to recover the piece.
