This film presents a North Korean family progressing through an 'average' day. There is no narration, but the filmmaker gives a point to the presentation through his use of film techniques and soundtrack. In order to get this sort of access, Mr. Fleury did have to make concessions to the DPRK government, and its clear that they are putting their best face forward here.

Best watched in conjunction with "A State of Mind".
