Dragon is a trafficker who helps North Koreans citizens to flee their country and then illegally cross the border into China, Laos and finally Thailand, where they can seek political asylum.  Their journey is long and perilous.  They can be detained at any moment and shipped back to their country, where the regime comes down extremely hard on fugitives.  Korean-Canadian director Ann Shin followed them on their journey and in this film she tells their stories.
