Pebbles at Your Door (Vibeke Bryld, DK, 2015)

"If we lived in Paradise, we would no longer need hope." Harmonia lives a happy life in North Korea, but her reality cracks as she learns the truths she has never wanted to know. In the end, she faces a choice of living in a broken paradise of lies and deception or treading the unknown, lonely path of the real world outside. Nothing is free, and the struggle to become a whole human being is inhuman. 'Pebbles at Your Door' is a film about a woman from the North Korean elite, who faces the reality of her once beloved childhood paradise and the impossible task of healing a life that has been torn from birth.
