'Gem of the Rainforest' is a story about a two-faced diamond mask stolen from Africa some three hundred years ago when the first white men landed on the shores of the River Niger. The rock suddenly resurfaces in the hands of a Texan resident, Dr. Dye Oppenheimer (played by Joe Grisaffi), for the first time in 300 years.
Geologist and Anthropologist professor, Dr. Catherine Ileka (a.k.a. Cat, played by Kae Shakir) gets a phone call from a friend, Sweetwater Brown (played by Perez Egbi), regarding the unveiling of the stone in Houston, Texas. Cat comes to Houston to see if it's true or just a myth.
To ascertain that the stone most believed never existed, does indeed exist, Cat and Sweetwater crash the exhibition event to confront Dr. Oppenheimer and Jesse Holland (played by Ramsey Nouah) about the Stone's origin. Cat and Sweetwater attempt to steal the stone and return it back to Africa putting themselves in a dangerous predicament.
