A group of 8 unemployed Alabama construction workers are about to take one last shot at the American dream. After laying off all of his employees in the recession, contractor Tim Evans will re-hire a group of his trusted brothers, and lead them deep into the most dangerous corner of the Amazon jungle in a search for gold. The quest for riches in this area goes back centuries to the legend of El Dorado, but there has never been a mission like this. Using American know-how and Southern ingenuity, the crew will move hundreds of tons of machinery across miles of treacherous, impenetrable jungle terrain. They’ll battle jaguars, venomous snakes, and each other in order to find gold and change their lives forever.
