The Fifth Estate The Last Great Escape Classroom Favourites

North Korea is among the world's most mysterious and secretive countries. The little we know comes from desperate souls who risk everything escaping overland in search of a new life. Many are captured in China and sent back home to an uncertain future. But a few somehow manage to make it all the way to Canada. The Last Great Escape is the story of two courageous individuals who fled a life of privation and fear and survived to tell the tale. Their stories come to life in special animation designed for The Fifth Estate.
