The Last Exiles

Jin and Suja met and fell in love while studying at university in Pyongyang. She was a young journalist from a prominent family, while he was from a small village of little means. Outside the school, the people of North Korea have come under the grip of great political upheaval, plunged into chaos and famine. When Jin returns home to find his family starving, their food rations all but gone, he makes a rash decision that will haunt him for the rest of his life. Meanwhile, miles away, Suja has begun to feel the tenuousness of her privilege when she learns that Jin has disappeared. Risking everything, and defying her family, Suja sets out to find him, embarking on a dangerous and uncertain journey that will test both of their love and their will to survive. In this vivid and moving story, award-winning documentary filmmaker Ann Shin offers a rare glimpse at life inside the guarded walls of North Korea, and the harrowing experiences of those who are daring enough to attempt escape.
