How do you imagine life in North Korea? The country is one of the most mysterious if not the most mysterious country in the world.
Are people there allowed to laugh, dance, or marry? People on the outside ask questions like these. They might sound funny and ironic, but that is the reality that the mystery provides.
This documentary is one of the rare that provides unique insights on everyday life in the country. Most people associate North Korea with dictatorship, military parades, and nuclear missile testing.
In the Western World, North Korea is known as the last Stalinist dictatorship. So, how does the life of 25 million people in North Korea looks like?
Given the isolation of the population from the rest of the world, it is hard to answer some questions. But this documentary tries to provide a unique insight.
