El Dorado is a three-party negotiation. After five years of exploration, three acquaintances have finally discovered the lost Muisca treasure of El Dorado in a remote cave in Columbia. Unfortunately, one the explorers has accidentally triggered a hidden destruction mechanism set by the tribe long ago to protect their treasure. Thus, they have only a very short time to negotiate how the treasure will be divided between them before the cave and everything in it is destroyed. However, as there is more treasure than they can each physically carry, they must make some difficult choices. Since they all had different motivations in joining the expedition in the first place, this will not be easy.
