黑夜中只有一點燈光和悠悠的佛歌,工人在床上一角禱告然後便走進荒僻之地。除了手上簡單的工具,他們能依靠的就只有一點信念,他們是《挖玉石的人》。
在緬甸要富裕,不是去販毒就是挖玉礦。可是因緬甸政府軍與少數民族克欽的武裝衝突,綿延百里的玉礦區成為戰區,開採活動被迫停止,卻成為緬甸人一夜生財的最佳機會。
挖礦工人冒著被逮捕危機,忍受長年讓家人長期分離,甚至賭上性命,只為還不完的債務、田租和小孩的學費。緬甸出生的華裔導演趙德胤再次以影像,展現緬甸基層追逐最平凡的生活。

To a beam of light and Buddhist hymns, miners in Myanmar prayed on the bed at night before setting out to the wild. They had nothing to rely on but simply basic mining tools and a little bit of faith. They were the "Jade Miners". In Myanmar, there are only two ways to become rich: drug dealing or mining. However, in the wake of the military confrontation between Myanmar government and Kachin Independence Army soldiers, hundreds of miles of mining areas turned into a battlefield, forcing a halt to mining activities. Yet, it turned out to be a golden opportunity for many Burmese people to make profit.
Not only are these Jade miners were at the risk of getting arrested, they also suffered from being separate from their family, or even bet their life on what they were doing. Nevertheless, all they wanted was merely to pay the huge amount of debts, rent and their children's tuition fees. Myanmar-born Chinese director Midi Z. once again visually depicted how the underprivileged locals in Myanmar pursued a basic living condition.
