A documentary one of the most bizarre interludes the history of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea when director Shin Sang-ok and actress Choi Eun-hee were kidnapped at the behest of the country's leader Kim Jong-il. Testimony from Eun-hee and her children creates a timeline for events leading up to the kidnappings and the emotionally devastating aftermath, enhanced with dramatic reconstructions. The film also incorporates the couple's secret audio recordings of Jong-il, while they were in his presence.
