Korea, orphan of the Cold War, remains a divided country. The North, still supported by Beijing, is run as a communist regime with Stalinist overtones. The South, heavily supported by Washington, is ruled as a Western-style democracy. In this rare collection of documentaries, engaged filmmakers share the experiences of North Korean defectors who have risked their lives and the loved ones they have left behind to escape their country. These films have been made thanks to the courage and determination of a number of thoughtful freedom fighters, supporting those who no longer would live within the framework of a deadlocked society and are intent on crossing the line.
