Overview

Worldly minded viewers looking to explore what life is truly like under the oppressive regime of Kim Jong Il can finally find the answers to many of their lingering questions as reporter Lisa Ling infiltrates North Korea to offer an insider's perspective on this reclusive northeast Asian country. Armed with little more than a camera, a microphone, and a pressing determination to gain a better understanding of life in and around Pyongyang, Ling poses as a medical coordinator in order to document the tireless efforts of humanitarians during her closely-guarded journey. This is the North Korea that few Americans will ever see, a vast and beautiful landscape ruled by one of the most controversial dictatorships in modern history.
