American Mountains

A former goldminer who had run foul of the law is made an unusual offer by mafia. When he arrives at his home country after a long absence, he won't be able to face his fears and gets into odd situations. The power of money and popularity among women won't let him step down from the rollercoaster in order to make right decisions. Fulfilling his childhood dream will make his life even more complicated.
