Can you imagine being born in a prison camp where the only crime your parents have committed was to disagree with the government? Stretch this imagination further, then, and think what you would be like 23 years later where this has been your only reality; where everyday you are forced to work long hours and can only dream of the luxury of a bowl of rice. You are unaware that other people do not live as you do. You have seen no books, indeed you can barely read or add up. Education has been the very minimum to allow you to carry out the slave labour you have done since you were 6 years old.

This was the world of Shin Donghyuk, possibly the only person to have escaped from a North Korean camp . Born into a North Korean political prison, he lived there all his life until he was 23. This film tells his story and is a presentation by Keswick Peace and Human Rights Group.
