In the Name of Justice

What is freedom worth if everything you have ever known and loved is on the other side of an impenetrable border? Ryun-hee Kim is kept in South Korea against her will. She has been trying to return to North Korea for seven years. While she fights authorities who are reluctant to let her return, she fears that the long years away from her family has made her a shadow in their lives.
