Tagging along to a humanitarian project to bring operations for cataracts to the blind, the filmmakers venture into the isolated, surreal North Korea. They talk about the history of North Korea and how the dictator makes himself to be the Great General in the minds and heart of the inhabitants. When being invited to visit the home of one of the blind women, the extent of the worship of the Great General is shown. In the backdrop of the film is the poverty that leads to even the very young having cataracts, the prison camps for families of those who have done some infraction against the general, people dying to escape.
One of the most important movies I've ever seen.
