A film that exposes the web of powerful interests protecting the blood trade of the mineral essential for the making of electronics.

Synopsis

The West’s demand for Coltan, used in mobile phones and computers, is funding the killings in Congo. Under the close watch of rebel militias, children as young as ten work the mines hunting for this black gold. Meet the powerful warlords who enslave local population and the European businessmen who continue importing Coltan, in defiance of the UN.
