A tale of one North Korean's struggle to leave behind the homeland, this stylised documentary unveils the depths of loss and longing, and the desire for legacy amongst a community of North Korean defectors who have escaped their homeland to live in the leafy London suburb. Joong-wha Choi, a former soldier in the DPRK, now lives with his wife and kids and works in a warehouse on the A3 motorway but despite enjoying the new found comforts of his British life, and relieved from the pressures of the North Korean state, he has a desire to return to the land that betrayed him, but is undoubtedly his true home. The film tracks his reflections on both why he left North Korea and the state of his day to day life over the course of several months, in what is ultimately a portrait of loss, longing, and the complexities of healing from trauma.
