Documentary devoted to North Korean defectors' human rights. For the past 11 years, the crew have struggled to include the reality as they accompany the smuggling of North Korean refugees and live together in the border towns of China and North Korea. As a result, they succeeded in capturing vividly the scenes of smuggling of North Korean refugees, trafficking situation of North Korean women, and drug trafficking in conspiracy with North Korean soldiers, with their cameras. They also peeked at the lives of North Korean women who were sold to Chinese farms.
