“The Fabulous Gold Harvesting Machine” is a character driven documentary film set in Chile, where a father and a son give each other the support they can’t get from the rest of society. It follows the story of a 60-year-old gold digger who has spent 40 years of his life searching for gold in Tierra del Fuego Island (Patagonia, Chile). His lonely life changes when he suffers a stroke and his young 20-year-old cowboy son starts taking care of him. Without any engineering knowledge, they decide to design and build a machine to harvest gold. It will help to ease the job and build a future of prosperity for both of them. The film intends to show how the struggle against death is always better when you share it.
