This spellbinding debut, reminiscent of Memoirs of a Geisha, depicts-with chilling accuracy-the suffering behind today's North Korean iron curtain. But for Gi and II-sun, forced into the underworld of human trafficking, their captivity outside North Korea is far crueler then the right control of their "Dear Leader" Tenderhearted Gi, just on the verge of womanhood, is consigned to a fate that threatens not only her body but her mind.
