Ilakaka, Madagascar

A team of men who are mining a claim by hand for saphires. The discovery of one saphire under a road bridge led to an influx of prospectors and the growth of a village to support saphire mining in the area. The promise of wealth has led to the growth of the Ilakaka shanty town which is home to gangsters, prostitutes and prospectors.
