Fool’s Gold is the story of vagabond treasure hunter Ben ‘Finn’ Finnegan (Matthew McConaughey) who has sunk his marriage to Tess (Kate Hudson) along with his trusty boat in his obsessive quest to find the legendary Queen’s Dowry treasure from a shipwreck in the late 1700’s. While diving, Finn finds a shard of a plate which provides a vital clue and let’s him know the treasure might actually be near. Finn drags Tess and her boss, billionaire Nigel Honeycutt (Donald Sutherland) into the quest. But Finn is not the only one interested in the treasure; his former mentor-turned-enemy Moe Fitch (Ray Winstone) will stop at nothing to beat him to it and secure the treasure for his client who is financing the operation, Bigg Bunny Smalls (Kevin Hart).
