Based on unprecedented access, this film shows life in North Korea more extensively than ever. Director Vitaly Mansky received an official permission for this first Russian-North Korean documentary collaboration. The film follows a family in Pyongyang during one year through the eyes of 8-year-olg Zin Mi, the only daughter of an obedient couple. Zin Mi participates in the giant patriotic shows with huge living tableaus of the country's leaders and achievements. Our contributors proudly become a part of those surreals shows. These shows, and other expressions of organised hyper reality are juxtaposed with images of everyday life that reveal uniformity, bleakness and poverty.
