"My father says that Korea is the most beautiful country...Korea is the land of the rising sun," says, eight-year-old schoolgirl, Zin-mi. Despite continuous interference by government handlers, Director, Vitaly Mansky still managed to document life in Pyongyang, North Korea in this fascinating portrait of one girl and her parents in the year that she prepares to join the Korean Children's Union on the 'Day of the Shining Star' (Kim Jong-II's birthday). As the family receives instruction on how to be the ideal patriots, Manksky's watchful camera captures details that spans from comrades struggling to stay awake during an official event to Zin-mi's tears at a particularly grueling dance lesson.
