Camp 14 – Total Control Zone portrays Shin Dong-Hyuk’s dramatic life as a child of two political prisoners in Camp 14, a North-Korean re-education camp, which was actually a death camp. From the age of six, he was subjected to forced labor, hunger, beatings and torture. He knew nothing of the world outside the barbed-wire fences. With the help of an older prisoner, he succeeded in escaping at the age of 23. For months he journeyed through North Korea and China and finally to South Korea.
