"Today, there is an estimated 250,000 North Korean refugees living underground in China. They have escaped a famine and persecutions that have claimed the lives of over three million in the past ten years. The Chinese government systematically arrests and forcibly repatriates hundreds of these refugees each month. Defecting from North Korea is a capital offence and the repatriated refugees face concentration camps, torture, forced abortion and execution. For a lucky few, there is hope that comes in the form of a group of multinational activists that have created an underground railroad via a network of safe houses and escape routes. The activists risk there own lives to help the refugees escape and the price of getting caught likely means death. Seoul Train, with its footage of the secretive "underground railroad", exposes the reality for North Koreans as they try to escape their homeland and China. The film also looks at the geopolitics behind the growing and potentially explosive humanitarian crisis." -- website.
