    Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years - a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung and the unchallenged rise to power of his son, Kim Jong-il, and the devastation of a far-ranging famine that killed one-fifth of the population. Taking us into a landscape never before seen, Demick brings to life what it means to be an average Korean citizen, living under the most repressive totalitarian regime today.

    Når aftenen saenker sig over Nordkorea, bliver der mørkt. Helt mørkt. Det blev lykken for 12-årige Mi-ran og 15-årige Jun-sang, der aften efter aften sneg sig til staevnemøder i ly af mørket. Efter tre år tog de hinanden i hånden. Efter ni år kyssede de hinanden. Så flygtede Mi-ran med sin familie til Kina - uden et ord til Jun-sang. For hvem kan man stole på?
