‘I thought only the stars were with us.’
Why do we go on and on about freedom?

What her mother had to endure to protect her?
The harrowing trip on foot across a desert desperately relying on a compass to guide them, until even THAT stopped working.
What she tell us they were prepared to do if they were sent back to North Korea?
