Diamonds (1999)

Film details


Comedy. The elderly Harry, one-time world champion boxer, now lives in seclusion with his son Moses and daughter-in-law. Harry's dream is to live in luxury and spend the rest of his days in his own house rather than an old peoples' home. With this in mind, he coerces his son and grandson into taking him to Reno, where he insists there are some diamonds to be found, buried years ago, which were a form of payment by a gangster to Harry for throwing a major fight.
