Two Danish comics who were both born in Korea, join the director of this film Mads Brugger on a trip to North Korea. The insufferable Danish journalist attempts a Borat-like stunt in Pyongyang when he convinces the North Korean government of the cultural value in hosting the fart-filled slapstick performance of the Danish-Korean duo Simon (is chubby) and Jacob (who has cerebral palsy describes himself as a spastic). Under 24-hour surveillance in a police state, Brügger's attempts to "expose the very core of evil that is North Korea" it is impossible to achieve of course. The real draw of this unclassifiable doc is his two charges' increasingly conflicted feelings—about Brügger, his deceptions, and their fake"homecoming".
