A group of blind miners, are shown trying to mine for diamonds in a cleared area of a forest. They eventually strike diamonds, and an enchanted diamond emerges. It attracts every other diamond, and forms to create a wolf-like beast. The beast is shown with a greedy passion for diamonds. It creates birds that collect fish from the water, in the form of an assault rifle. Meanwhile, the miners are gathering in a city on an island, while a spiritual figure follows. The beast finally reaches the island, and is stationed on a building, and begins to act like a dictator, and orders the birds to collect the diamonds. The spirit reaches the city with flying creatures following it. The beast tries to fight it, casting a beam, but the creatures cast beams at it, creating a mass that outnumbers the beast, killing it. The enchanted diamond explodes, giving the miners vision, and they rejoice. The last shot shows the areas viewed empty, through a hand holding an enchanted diamond. The hand closes, and the film ends.
