Set in the South American republic of Costaguana, in the province of Sulaco where life is shaped, directly or indirectly, by the silver mine. Charles Gould, the owner of the mine, has to protect the silver from the rebel forces that have overthrown the government. Nostromo, a sailor respected by all, has to transport the silver to a safe place but there is an accident and Nostromo reaches an island where he hides the treasure.
Nostromo is the only man capable of the decisive action needed to save the silver of the San Tome mine and secure independence for Sulaco. Is his integrity as unassailable as everyone believes, or will his ideals, like those which have inspired the struggling state itself, buckle under economic and political pressures?
