No Comments

The story of how a prematurely retired Danish chef infiltrates one of the world’s most brutal dictatorships. When Ulrich Larsen joined an association for North Korea’s friends, he could not have imagined that it would end with him being deeply involved in secret deals with oil, drugs and high-tech weapon systems. For ten years, he took great risks to document everything on film. The documentary shows how the North Korean regime is working to circumvent the UN’s increasingly harsh sanctions.
