Escaping North Korea has always been very dangerous, but in the last few years it has become almost impossible. In the past, several thousand North Korean defectors a year were registered in other countries. Now, as all borders are closed with orders to kill those crossing, there are fewer than a hundred escapees a year. The film follows people helping to cross the border into China and shows what Koreans experience as they flee the communist “utopia”.
