Growing up in poverty in the ‘hermit state’ of North Korea, Nam and his friends know absolutely nothing of the world beyond their nation’s borders.

A chance find of an illegal USB, containing images and videos of the outside world, immediately blows their young minds. However soon, complications with the secret police, force Nam to flee alone across the border to China.

What he finds in the outside world, amazes him, stresses him out, and eventually sets him on a new exciting pathway for his life.
