Picture, if you will, a young boy walking home from school. He sees in the distance a car driving toward him. As the car pulls up, a man steps out, places handcuffs on the boy and throws him into the back of the car. Unknown to the boy, their destination is Yodok Prison Camp. Arrested because his father is believed to have made a disparaging remark about Kim Jong il (though this is a charge he will never be informed of), the young boy’s life will never be the same.
