Even though the Government expelled them from their lands in the name of ecologic preservation 40 years ago, a group of panners keep searching the rivers for gold, in Costa Rica's jungle. Their living as modern pariahs shows their fight for survivance, and questions the country's conservationist fame.

Written and Directed by Alvaro Torres-Crespo
