Synopsis

Operating under a pseudonym which means "no boundaries", North Korean defector, Sun Mu, doesn't just paint about his troubled life in the world’s most reclusive and repressive state - he paints images of hope. Sun Mu's work is imbued with nuance and heartbreak, political pop art that inverts the propaganda work he used to paint for the North Korean regime. In July of 2014, Sun Mu is offered an historic, though potentially dangerous, opportunity - a solo exhibition in the capital of Asian Art - China. As he prepares his show undercover, an unexpected turn of events puts Sun Mu and all of his friends and family in danger.
