In Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, there is an extreme contrast between the poverty of the population and wealth of the subsoil, claiming the lives of hundreds of artisanal miners. Marcelino goes underground searching for rubies in the same kind of hole his brother died in. Toni works tirelessly in a mine with little gold left in it. These are just two of thousands of stories in this hidden part of the world, but...did you know your health also depends on their work?
