Sook-Ya, is a North Korean defector and one of several people profiled in a new documentary by Toronto director Ann Shin. 'The Defector' chronicles the arduous journey North Korean defectors must undertake. They escape to China, but can't stay there legally. So their struggle continues as they try to get to South Asia and beyond.
Ann Shin met several of these defectors, as well as the people who help them. And she joined us from Toronto.
