In the far north of Burma, a gold rush has been quietly gathering force, sending out ripples of rumours, creating a magnet whose force can be felt throughout the country.
The lure is almost irresistible. When the Irrawaddy and the Chindwin rivers are low, their empty banks reveal gold-bearing sand, riches just waiting to be scooped up, instant wealth there for the taking.
Women are at the head of this gold rush, the owners of many of the claims and the rigs which suck up the ore from the river bottom.The film focuses on several of these women, those who have already made their fortunes, and those who are still rich only in their dreams.
