Every year thousands of North Koreas make the dangerous journey across the border to escape oppression and poverty. In March of 2005, Danny was one of them. Danny crossed into China and escaped a life of indoctrination, routine public executions, and starvation. As Danny traveled, he saw a world he never knew existed. A world where movement was not monitored by the governmentDanny from North Korea, information was readily available, and most importantly at the time, there was enough food to fill his empty belly.
