Just two years in the job and armed with nuclear weapons, North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un is the world’s youngest dictator, ruling one of the world’s most isolated countries. Like his father and grandfather, he wants to maintain tight control over what North Koreans see of the world — and what the world sees of North Korea. But with unique access, FRONTLINE goes inside the secret state to explore life under its new ruler and to investigate the enigmatic “Morning Star King” as he tries to hold onto power. Using new footage smuggled from inside and never-before-told stories from recent defectors living in South Korea, the film offers a rare glimpse of how some North Koreans are defying authority in a country where just being caught with illegal DVDs could mean immediate imprisonment.
