The life of a North Korean teenager
31 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

The film depicts a North Korean teenager's struggle to understand her father's devotion to his country, and to scientific achievement at the expense of his own family's happiness.

Spending most of his time at work in a distant town, he leaves his two daughters, wife, and mother-in-law in their rural home.

This girl biggest dream is to live in an apartment, and we frequently see her dreaming about escaping her reality, a hard life in the middle of a low income family.

Not a great movie, but coming from North Korea it's not that bad actually.

very good to understand a little more about the daily lives of North Koreans.
