In February 2017, Kim Jong-nam was attacked at the airport in Malaysia by two young women who pressed their hands onto his face and ran away. It would have been brushed off as a joke if the victim hadn’t been the half-brother of the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and hadn’t died a short time later. There was deadly nerve poison on the women’s palms – a fact they denied all knowledge of. The women, one from Indonesia and the other from Vietnam, suddenly found themselves accused of murdering a member of the North Korean dictator dynasty, an act they will have to pay for with their lives. Are they agents or unsuspecting victims of a political conspiracy? With the help of surveillance camera footage and interviews with lawyers and journalists, Ryan White has created a documentary film highlighting the dark machinations afoot in North Korea that is as gripping as a political thriller.
