Directed by Spaniard Miguel Alcantud, Diamantes Negros, which makes a connection between the black diamond, and the black athlete, stars 2 Malian boys, Setigui Diallo and Hamidou Samaké, and laments what it calls the trafficking of African children to Europe to play football, comparing it to the transatlantic slave trade. The two young men are convinced by scouts/agents of the riches that await them in Europe, but it doesn't take long for those dreams to become nightmares. Cut off from their families and friends, the challenges they face are even heavier burdens to carry.
