Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

On March 17, 2009, Laura Ling and Euna Lee were working on a documentary about North Korean defectors. While filming, they were apprehended by North Korean soldiers, charged with "hostile acts," and imprisoned. Following months of interrogation, the women were tried before North Korea's highest court and sentenced to twelve years of hard labor. Laura's sister, journalist Lisa Ling, immediately began a campaign to get her sister released — a campaign that led her to the highest echelons of the media world and U.S. government. Somewhere Inside is Laura's gripping account of the deprivation and harrowing interrogation she endured, its emotional toll, and the fear that she might never see her family again.
