Beyond Utopia Overview

Several families attempt to flee in North Korea, one of the most oppressive places on Earth, a land they grew up believing was a paradise.

At the film's core is courageous Pastor Kim, a man of God on a mission to help a mother reunite with the child she was forced to leave behind, and a family of five including small children and an elderly grandmother embarking on a treacherous journey into the hostile mountains of China and through southeast Asia. Leaving their homeland is fraught with unimaginable danger yet these individuals are driven to take the risk.

Inspired by Hyeonseo Lees memoir, The Girl With Seven Names.

In English and Korean, with English subtitles.
