The Last Great Escape animated

'The Last Great Escape' presents the stories of two desperate individuals who risked everything to flee North Korea. One young woman, who we will call Lucia Jang, agreed to share her story with the fifth estate on the condition she remain anonymous to protect her family still living there. The other story is that of Shin Dong-hyuk, believed to be the only person born in a North Korean prison camp to escape. Since it was almost impossible to verify the details of either account, the fifth estate chose to use animated sequences to illustrate some of their most difficult memories.
