Much to the surprise of the whole world, the Slovenian cult band, Laibach, is the first rock group invited to perform in the fortress state of North Korea. Confronting strict ideology and cultural differences, the band struggles to get their songs approved by the censor before they perform before an audience that has never been exposed to alternative music. Meanwhile, propaganda loudspeakers are set up at the border between the two Koreas, and a countdown to war is announced.
