Pyongyang, North Korea, 2011. In a city full of lies, one man seeks the truth. In Kim Jong-Il s North Korea, great things are expected of Han, a lonely guide to foreign tourists.
To Ben and Hal, two world-weary Western journalists posing as tourists, Han s obedience and austerity exemplifies all that is extreme in the totalitarian state.
But Han is not all he appears to be; he has deep secrets that, if uncovered, would prove fatal to his life and taint the untouchable reputation of the Party.
When Han falls in love with the enigmatic Mae, he is drawn further into danger, which forces to make a desperate decision: to unquestionably obey the Party for safety, or to risk everything for friendship, love, and freedom."
