Nestled below the rugged Chilean peaks of the Andes lies the gold mining town of Andacollo. The town's remoteness and mining economy has nurtured religious beliefs in the power of the Virgin over the inhabitants' lives. The film tells the story of the artisan miners and what goes into producing 75 grams of gold.
