Documentary, filmed in the northeast mountains of China, that examines the desperate circumstances of North Korean refugees who have illegally crossed the border into China to escape famine conditions which have existed in North Korea since 1995. As many as 800,000 have crossed into China in search of food, most soon returning to their own country. Those who have chosen to stay endure dire conditions, forced to hide in caves, under floorboards, in basements, or on the streets.
