Joong-wha Choi, a former soldier in North Korea, lives today with his wife and children in New Malden - the south London suburb that is home to Europe's biggest North Korean population. Despite enjoying the new-found comforts of his British life, he would like to return to his homeland. Joong-wha reflects on both why he left North Korea and the state of his day-to-day life over the course of several months, in a portrait of loss, longing, and the complexities of healing from trauma.
