Zin-mi lives with her hardworking parents in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The girl is about to join the Korean Union for Children,  which means she is on the verge of becoming part of this ideal society where grownup stuff like hard work and taking responsibility for yourself are essential. It becomes increasingly clear that this film isn’t capturing the real life of a North Korean family, but rather reveals how propaganda is made. And despite everyone’s inexhaustible attempts to showcase that ideal society, Mansky still manages to film the real deal behind it all:  from smalltime comrades who fight against sleep during official events to the tears Zin-mi cries at a grueling dance lesson.

Witalij Manski (1963) Studied at All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography. Since 1989 he has shot more than 30 films. His works were presented at more than 400 international film festivals. He was awarded with more than 50 awards and prizes in Russia and abroad.
