北朝鮮での幼少時代、『ここは地球上最高の国』と信じていたイ・ヒョンソだったが、90年代の大飢饉に接してその考えに疑問を抱き始める。14歳で脱北、その後中国で素性を隠しながらの生活が始まる。 これは、必死で毎日を生き延びてきた彼女の悲惨な日々とその先に見えた希望の物語。そして、北朝鮮から遠く離れても、なお常に危険に脅かされ続ける同朋達への力強いメッセージが込められている。

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thoght her country was the "best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 17-years-old to begin a life in hiding as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope — and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind. Full bio
