Fool's Gold

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Myra is part Cherokee, a cleaner in the local hotel. She and husband Thomas and unemployed son Terry live in a trailer park. In 1828 gold was found in Dahlonega in the American deep south; the Cherokees were rounded up and force-marched to the west in the 'Trail of Tears'. In a moving portrait, Fool's Gold peels away the layers of affluent colour-co-ordinated shops, cafes and big cars to reveal a community, where people like Myra and Thomas, live out life untouched by the prosperity of tourism, who struggle with poverty but share the little they have with others.
