Ki-Won is 75 years old. Born in China after his parents fled North Korea during Japanese colonization, he returned to North Korea in his 20s and married Hayoung a year later. In his 60s, Ki-Won escaped to China with Hayoung to find food.
Since Ki-Won had been out of China – his birthplace – for 40 years, the Chinese government denied him citizenship, so the couple hid in the underground for over 10 years until LiNK brought them out into our Southeast Asia shelter.
Every year, thousands of North Koreans make the dangerous journey across the border to escape oppression and poverty.
In March of 2005, Danny was one of them.
He escaped a life of indoctrination, routine public executions, and starvation.
This is a documentary about Danny's story-- from his challenging life in North Korea, to his brave escape to China, and his resettlement journey in the United States.
