This film documents the 12-day journey organized by the Korean Friendship Association and its leader, Alejandro Perez. Alejandro heads the organization with mainly young members who have become disillusioned with the capitalist and consumerist nature of their own countries. The documentary shows various staged events, partly in honor of the group and partly where the tour participants are being exploited for propaganda purposes. The film features commentary by the group members throughout. What begins as an idealistic mystery tour, quickly turns into a bit of a nightmare when the participants begin to see realize what the real North Korea is like.
