Summary, etc.: "A jaw-dropping glimpse of everyday life in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang: Zin-Mi is an adorable 8-year-old girl, who, as she prepares to joing the pretigious Children's Union, participates in colorful, joyous patriotic school pageants, eats delicious evening meals at her family's well-appointed apartment, and is doted on by her attractive parents who work in model factories that regularly exceed their production targets. Sounds too good to be true? Of course it is. Russian director Vitaly Mansky reveals the fraud behind the "documentary." Government handlers script the family's conversations (are they even her parent? could this possibly be their home?), constantly demanding re-takes infused with greater joy and patriotic zeal." -- back cover of container.
