Summary
The first documentary filmed in North Korea by Westerners, the film follows two young gymnasts, 13-year-old Pak Hyon Sun and 11-year-old Kim Song Yon, for over eight months as they as they balance school and family life with intense training in preparation for participation in the Mass Games. Made up of three elements--gymnastics, backdrop and music--they are similar to Olympic opening ceremonies, mind-bogglingly elaborate, but on an impressively larger scale. Inside this synchronized athletic display are two giggling girls--proof of the resilience of smaller human freedoms--in the face of paranoia and almost constant mind control
