Anna is a nine-year-old girl of Swiss and South Korean origin, who is torn between her cultures. One night, she hears a noise coming from her wardrobe and a mysterious man appears inside. To her surprise, he seems rather lost than threatening. The stranger turns out to be from North Korea
and desperately wants to return back home, so Anna decides to help him. She learns that her new friend isn’t so very different from herself.
