Part 1: Escape from North Korea

Every year, thousands of North Koreans risk their lives to cross the border into China illegally, driven by the desperate desire for freedom. Living in constant fear of detection, these defectors face unimaginable challenges on their journey to escape the oppressive regime. If caught in communist Laos, they face the terrifying prospect of being sent back to North Korea, where they could be subjected to imprisonment or worse. Despite the immense risks involved, fewer than 25,000 North Koreans have successfully completed the perilous journey to South Korea. In this segment, VICE accompanies a South Korean pastor who has established a modern-day underground railroad, dedicated to smuggling defectors from China to freedom and eventual citizenship in South Korea.
