About the film:
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. 
Meet Danny, he's from North Korea.
